Concept creators

The German e-bike retrofit expert Electric Bike Solutions GmbH ( created the concept of E-Lastenrad (E-Cargobike). They present themselves as: “one of the leading suppliers in the field of e-retro fit kits for bicycles.” The Heidelberg- based company was found in 2009 by Thilo Gauch and Philipp Walczak. It concentrates on: “conversion kits for retrofitting bicycles to e-bicycles as well as cargobikes for private and commercial purposes.”

Cargobike market gaining momentum

According to Electric Bike Solutions’ communication manager Paul Niemeyer the idea to create E-Cargobike became reality after: “We successfully used our own cargobike which was of course retrofitted with an e-bike conversion kit. Moreover we realized that the cargobike market is gaining momentum. For us as a retrofit company this makes really sense.”

Niemeyer underlines that E-Cargobike will not only sell e-cargobikes but also conventional cargobikes. Moreover he says that: “IBDs and other selected resellers are welcomed.” For more information resellers can get more information via or the business customer hotline ++49/6221/87106-99.
