Give Forks the Support They Need
Converting a standard bike into electric has a lot of benefits. It can give you an extra boost of power and the conversion is surprisingly easy with kits from Leeds Electric Bike. One challenge that cyclists find during the conversion though is giving their standard bike’s wheels the support they need. After all, it was designed for lightweight bike wheels, not giant electric hub motors. But there is a solution to compensate for this added weight: motor torque arms!
Prevent Poor Performance
Broken front forks on electric bikes are a common occurrence; mostly due to the use of aluminum forks. Using the steel reinforcement of a torque arm adds support onto a bicycle’s frame to hold powerful hub motors in place. They also ensure your bike’s dropouts resist the torque of an electric hub motor. Giving you get great durability so you bike’s forks will remain strong.
Easy to Install
The energy put out by the 500-watt electric motors is significant. Without extra support, your front bicycle fork could snap. Having a strong motor torque arm is so important to make sure every piece of your converted bike remains secure. You’ll find this arm is easy to install and gives you extra stability in the dropouts of the front bicycle fork to prevent spin-out.
