    Easy on - easy off electric kit

    Hi people,
    I love biking and I want to ride my bike to everywhere I want to go.
    I own a mountain bike and i want to use it not only on the mountain but for commuting also. The kits I have seen, until now, are permanently installed on the bike. I want to take the kit off when I am going to the mountain and put it on next mornint when i go to work.
    Is there anythnig like it out there?

    I know someone will suggest to buy a second bike for commuting but I cannot have another one in my appartment (the wife will have me sleeping in the stairs!)

    Regards,
    George

    I'd suggest getting a small front hub (like a cute) shouldn't take more than 10 minutes to put the whole assembly motor, battery and throttle on an off.

    Another option is Friction Drive

    Thank you for your answer.
    As time goes by and i am looking for all possible solutions, the front wheel is the best and fastest way to do. I have to put a disc brake on it though.

    The Friction drive is interesting but not good for off road knobby tyres!
    Also, the friction costs a lot in power consumption. Also there is the parameter of water. If you go over water say goodbye to traction!

    Thank you.

    I would also say a front kit is your best bet. You will need a rack or basket for quick battery installation. A front basket would be easiest. Use a thumb throttle or pedal assist sensor and you won't have to deal with a normal throttle being in the way of your standard grip.
