Very solid and easy to use

It is an incredible device, light, very solid and easy to use. I am very happy of it on my Brompton. The service ensured by ARCC is outstanding. I would strongly recommend the purchase of it.

Flawless function

An excellent bike converted to electric by ARCC. The electric motor and controls are great and function flawlessly. The bike has worked well - the electric motor assistance is smooth and easily controlled. Extra or replacement batteries are readily available and reasonably priced. Superb service from ARCC both on the conversion and service.

Almost 5 stars

Very good conversion of my old Brompton. There were connection issues with the Generation 1 control unit which took two returns to the factory (Aug 19 and April 20) for the problem to be properly resolved (replacing connections etc). Other than that the control and response from the motor is now very reliable and I have been pleased with the bike. The service from ARCC when the unit failed has been very good - 5 stars. If I hadn’t had the issues with the control unit the rating would have been 5 stars.

800km review

I completed 800km last week, after a month with the converted Brompton: it is flawless. For long and hilly trips, a spare battery and light third party charger are perfect.
The conversion seems to widen a bit the front fork, but is still fit in the Polaris bike case (together with charger and batteries). There is quite a lot more cables, but they are neatly tied by the arcc team. I have found the Brompton stock stem holder to struggle to stay folded since the conversion, but that is a very minor inconvenience.

Excellent Conversion

Conversion completed within a few days and the components are of a high quality. The conversion is very compatible with the Brompton and works well with all aspects of the bike. The performance is smooth and very efficient and effective. Highly recommended.
