Turn Any Regular Bike Into Electric Bike With Rubbee

Meet Rubbee - the small unit capable of turning any regular bike into a powered 'electric bike'. Ideal for those who don't want to own a full-fledged electric bike but still want to have a convenience of getting driven electrically; say in rain. Well, Rubbee's got you covered - it's a waterproof unit that mounts on the rear tire of your bike and turn your bike into electric bike. The mounting and unmounting is idiot-proof.


The machine clamps to the seat-post with the help of a quick-release lever. It's designed in such a way that it will always be 'pressed down' on the rear tire so that the electric roller is always in contact with the rubber of the tire. The roller itself is made from a special polyurethane compound mix idea for maintaining the grip and not causing wearing of the tire.

Under its hood, the Rubbee has a powerful 14.4 volt, 280 Wh battery that powers the electric motor to deliver a top speed of about 25 Kmph. The battery will last for about 25 kilometers, which should be enough for most of the riders. The Rubbee adds only 6.5 Kgs to the overall weight. The battery can be fully charged in about 2 hours.

The machine can be controlled by a throttle mounted on the handlebar. We've a video from the official Kickstarter page, check it out below-

    Amazing piece of innovation! Simple and practical in most conditions.
    Since the coupling is directly to the tyre, it might get a bit tough on muddy roads I guess.

    Innovative, simple and portable but price is too much $1,370. (Around INR. 80KšŸ˜²)

    Well this is a tech to look much into

    Price no wonder we have globalisation and countries like India and China they are good in implementing this at lesser cost

    PS:Have anyone noticed the hand drawn load rickshaw tweaked to run on motor

    if you press the brakes hard, then won't that affect the life of the motor, since there is no clutch mechanism involved here ?
