Business overview


Empowering E-bikes is a small Aberdeen company, which grew out of personal experience of use of electric bikes and the freedom that they can bring. The beauty of an electric assisted bike is that it feels sufficiently like a bike to get the benefit of exercise and the experience of a bike journey, while opening up much greater possibilities as to how far you can go with it. I have built and used electric bikes for commuting around town, for travelling hundreds of miles at a time, and everything in between.

Battery technologies have improved over the last few years, the scope for low power electric assisted vehicles has increased greatly, with ever smaller and / or cheaper giving greater range and therefore more options. An electric car, at this time, still needs a lot of battery; an electric bike doesn't. Similarly, motor kits are now available that are powerful, effective, lightweight and neat, road legal in the UK, and do not interfere with pedaling the bike un-powered if you want to. In many ways it is helpful to think of an electric bike not as a bicycle, but as as part of a new option of light electric powered vehicles, combining use of modern technology with taking an active, physically engaged approach that gives all kinds of benefits.

Based on personal experience of a range of types of electric bike, I have put together a system based around a high quality (Bafang BBS01) mid drive (i.e. the motor drives the bike via the chain and gears for greater hill climbing efficiency) plus a high capacity battery for long range and additional components as required. Rather than fully built up bikes, the primary offering is a conversion service i.e. converting your existing bike to an electric bike, hence allowing a high degree of flexibility for you to end up with whatever kind of electric bike is needed. The BBS01 kit is suitable for fitting to a very wide range of bikes - please ask. Full electric bikes can also be provided if preferred.

Real knowledge, not just a salesman

I've been looking at kit options and decided in the end to look for someone reliable to do the conversion. I didn't realise he was so far away (I live in Wales) but Graham was still happy to take the time to discuss things with me. I've done a lot of research and this guy clearly knows what he's talking about. There's so much stuff out there and it's easy to waste your money if you don't have the right knowledge and experience. If I get a kit I'll definitely order from Graham. I might even take a holiday in Scotland and get the job done in Aberdeen. Well impressed!

Empowering E-Bikes work magic !!

Graham clearly knows his stuff and I was very impressed about the relaxed, open manner in which he gets things sorted. My BionX battery on my electric Giant was goosed, he took it to bits, sent me photo's and a technical file providing the options available, we then discussed a fix which only took a few days and we both came away happy with the outcome. I was sent another file explaining the technical details of the work done and it was very professionally written and detailed. My plan now is to take a bare bike back and get a conversion, as I have every confidence that this would be a sound investment in a local business that actually delivers way above what I thought I would get, and I'm difficult to impress. This is a service that Aberdeen and the Shire needs.

E bike for starters

Graham is very knowledgeable and helpful about all aspects of e bikes. He provides a personal service for your particular needs. I brought him my bike for a service and a quote for its conversion to an e bike. I also hired an e bike for a half day (at low cost) and received very useful guidance on suitable routes for my ability and interests.
If you are interested in e bikes I can recommend Empowering e bikes.

Re-Powered by Empowering E-Bikes!!!

Friendly, Knowledgeable, quick & good communications - did a great job for me to provide a new custom battery pack for a vintage electric bike. Would thoroughly recommend for anyone considering customizing their existing bike to electric.
