Bret converted my Kona Rove steel frame bike for me. It was a really good experience and I am delighted with the outcome. Bret’s communication was brilliant throughout the process and he kept me completely informed throughout the process. It was also a collaborative process rather than a “this is what you get experience”. Bret asked me what I specifically wanted and delivered to that perfectly. Excellent service and a great bloke.
My e-conversion was slightly different as I have a Schwinn Adult Trike (due to vertigo issues). Bret took on the challenge. He is a very good listener and problem-solver. He took the time to answer our many questions and explain options. Just taken delivery of my e-trike and am very happy with the result. Many thanks!
Thanks for everything. I am very pleased with your conversion of my bike. It has been a pleasure to deal with you. As well as providing a very cost effective solution you kept me in touch at every stage of the process.I have no hesitation in recommending you to more of my friends.
It was a pleasure to engage with Bret who provided an efficient and professional approach to converting my road bike. The technology used and workmanship is of a very high standard. I will certainly recommend Bret to others who are contemplating a conversion to electric.
I test rode 6 ebikes then noticed Bret’s TradeMe info. After our first meeting and a ride on Brets e-bike I knew this was the conversion for me, plus, I get to keep my own Merida Crossway now with awesome power when reqd. Bret is a top guy, knows his stuff and importantly he delivers exactly what he said in our discussions. The bike looks excellent, is a pleasure to ride. Highly recommend Bret, if you want a retro fit then he’s the guy to go to. I am one very happy ebike rider. Thank you Bret.
“Bret recently converted my mountain bike to a power-assist eBike. I couriered the bike all the way from Gisborne to Auckland and Bret collected it, did everything he said he was going to do, kept me updated with progress and then couriered it back. I was really happy with the end result and found him excellent to work with. Thanks
I recently test rode a bunch of different e bikes but none felt as good as my own bike. That’s when I contacted Bret.Bret was super easy to deal with. The communication each step of the way was excellent. The bike is a joy to ride - I love it! I now have have exactly what I had hoped for, plus some future bike support with Bret promising to check it after 6 months. He also gave me some tips for useful accessories. I highly recommend Bret’s e bike conversion.
“Bret did an excellent job converting my bike to a power-assist e-bike. It runs really smoothly and is awesome to ride ... so much fun! Bret understood my requirements well so I now have a bike that’s perfect for my needs. Was also given helpful advice on additional parts for the bike. A totally professional job - couldn’t be happier. Thanks Bret!
These bikes are custom made for every requirement. I needed endurance and power for a long ride into work each day. After discussing my needs with Bret, that’s exactly what I got. My ebike is professionally put together and looks great. Power assisted cycling is the way of the future so it feels great to be part of it. Plus I can ditch the car for a while and get fit..its a win win. Nice one Bret. Cheers
Just wanted to write a few words about my recent ebike conversion, the awesome experience and service I received from you with the TSDZ2 750W torque sensing mid drive motor. - Your communication was excellent.- Lots of information and what my expectations should be.- Customised and made specific for my existing bike.- Very knowledgeable about all aspects of ebikes and cycling in general.- Honest, reliable and easy to deal with.- Right gear and tools for the job.I was certainly not disappointed with the test ride. It was truly an exhilarating bike ride. It almost felt like I had “God Legs”. From what I had researched, there was nothing out there for the same specifications as what I was getting for the same money. For anyone looking at getting an ebike or wanting to convert your existing bike,I would highly recommend you get in touch with Bret.You won’t be disappointed !!Thank you again Bret and I wish you all best.
Bret built a bike for me – and I could not be happier with the results. He was very helpful and talked me through each process, planning, buying and building. I am now a proud owner of an excellent electric assist bike, at a very reasonable price from a dependant, reliable and professional bike enthusiast.
In mid 2018 I bought a new bike and Bret converted it to an ebike. Very honest and reliable, and passionate about what he does. He explains everything clearly and has good follow up. I asked him to add better tyres to prevent punctures. You get a better spec bike for an equal or better price than buying from a bike shop. I now ride 15km each way to work and have saved $$$ in fuel and avoid rush hour traffic. Will pay for itself within a year I think. Try an ebike and you’ll be hooked.
