Yes! Over 70% of our bikes eventually have pedal assist systems installed. Whether front or rear hub motor or bottom bracket-mounted mid-drive, the Boda Boda V2 is ready to be converted to the system of your choice. We’ve even provided extra room under the rear deck to mount a battery; contact us about our battery bracket for an easy mounting option.
Here is an example of our elBoda Boda that we build with the BionX pedal assist system:
The main differences between the Step Through and Step-Over frames are a few key measurements, allowing a wider range of people to fit the bicycle. As you can see in the chart below, the Step-Through has a shorter reach from the saddle to the handlebars, a shorter steer tube and a much lower top tube which creates the step-through portion of the frame.
Our bikes are shipped about 85% assembled and securely packed. When your bike arrives, final assembly and tuning should be performed by a qualified bicycle mechanic to ensure the safety of both the rider and passenger(s). The mechanic should have experience with headset bearing assemblies, derailleur systems and either rim or disc brake systems.
Yes, it’s definitely possible to add multiple chainrings and a front derailleur to the Boda Boda V2. The stock bottom bracket will accept any JIS Square taper modern crank (double or triple chainring); its spindle length is 110.5mm .
The bottom bracket shell will also accept external bearing bottom brackets; its shell dimensions are 68mm wide, English thread (1.37 in x 24 TPI).
The serial number of your Boda Boda (or elBoda Boda) can be found under your bike stamped into the bottom bracket shell between the pedals.
