  • The Backstory

    This is my first workshop.

    There is a huge DIY community that has been converting bikes for 20 years. Custom bike shops (like ours) are starting to pop up. I haven’t found where anyone has tried a workshop before.

    So I’m giving it a go.

    GBC is participating in the Builders + Backers Idea Accelerator to test this concept and see if it is a viable business model. We’re testing several business assumptions, one being: “Can we complete the workshop in 5 hours?”

    It takes us about 3 hours to convert a bike.

    This includes preparing the bike (wash and inspection), breaking down the bike (removing the bottom bracket, chain, pedals, cranks, front derailleur, and front gear shifter), and installing the kit (mount motor, battery, display, connect wires, test, test, test).

    Every conversion is different. Most are straightforward. Sometimes, things do come up. This may be simple, like rerouting brake cables, or complicated, like grinding down a seam inside the bottom-bracket casing.

    Occasionally, we get into the conversion and determine we cannot proceed. When this happens, we’ve saved all our parts and we reverse the process

    Our plan is to do our best to address all the issues that might arise. If your bike cannot be upgraded, I’ll refund your fee.

    If we don't finish during the workshop time, we’ll schedule a time to complete the conversion for you

    I’m excited to have you join us on this e-biking journey.


    Cheers
