    Hi, is there anywhere in Dublin that converts road bikes to electric. Im getting jealous watching every Deliveroo rider bomb past me with ease as I struggle up the hill on my way home each evening! Any recommendations and advice hugely appreciated.

    i used cost me 500 squids. Very happy with it. E bikes are a life saver. Go for it!

    If you mean 'road bike' rather than a hybrid, you probably need the lightest conversion kit available, which is probably the Swytch kit,

    Order on-line, costs somewhere in region of 900 Euro, delivery in about 3 months and fit it yourself. I seen one last week and it looks neat.

    If you have a strong hybrid bike, then there are conversions advertised on Done Deal, and kits available on-line from about Euro 500 up. A word of caution, many of the ads for kits at lower prices do not include batteries, also the battery capacity affects the price
