A Story Started by a Passion for Cycling and Environmental Consciousness.
Niubike imports, services and builds premium quality electric bikes, trikes and other vehicles. We provide excellent products and services backed up by knowledge and experience. The products include electric bicycles; electric tricycles; conversion kits for bikes, trikes and recumbents; and a unique range of customised products tailored for Australian bicycle market. We also supply a diverse range of replacement Lithium Electric Vehicle Batteries and accessories.
Converting Australian Mail Bikes, in conjunction with Electric Vehicles Pty. Ltd., to electric power assistance has been one of our major projects thus allowing Australia Post to re allocate delivery rounds by expanding their workforce catchments and replacing petrol powered vehicles. This is expected to cut carbon dioxide-equivalent emissions by more than 1000 tonnes each year.
As an active member of the cycling community, Niubike participates in a number of events such as the Ride to Work Day in Melbourne on 12th of October. Our products have been included in the electric bicycle review by Bicycle Victoria’s Ride On magazine December 2011 – January 2012 Edition.
The Director of Niubike, Steve Brown, has a background in mechanical and electronic engineering
and has been working in the electric power assist bicycle industry for the past five years.
Apart from his own business and contract projects with others, he also provides training to
the electric bicycles mechanics studying at North Melbourne Institute of TAFE. Being an
enthusiastic cyclist, Steve participates in both on-road and off-road riding. He is an active
member of the Middle Distance Bike Club, Victoria, and has
In early 2010, Hirun, a South Korean company offered Steve an electric bike conversion kit to trial. He fitted the kit to his Marin Alpine Trail mountain bike and tested it off-road in the Dandenong Ranges. As an experienced electric bicycle engineer and cyclist he was immediately impressed by the Korean motor and electronics and decided to import a complete range of their electric bicycles for comprehensive testing. His confidence was validated when he received the bikes and showed them to cycling enthusiasts with electric bicycle experience and knowledge. After repeated tests, Steve had his judgment confirmed and decided to go ahead with importing a quantity of the Hirun range of electric bicycles to Australia.
Recently, we introduce Superlite series of EBike, Trikes and Conversion Kit to fill the need for custom built electric bike in the market. In November 2011, we fitted conversion kits to Greenspeed Recumbent Trike for two disabled riders, which proved the quality of our product and services (see Testimonial Page). Also, a recent business trip in China secured our Australian distributorship for a leading Chinese manufacturer of Lithium Batteries.
As committed environmentalists and enthusiastic cyclists, we see electric motor assisted bikes as an extension to conventional push bicycles. They enable a wider range of people to experience the pleasure of cycling and make commuting by bicycles a far more appealing alternative to the motor car. Through Niubike’s products and services, our ambition is to replace the heavy carbon footprint with a lightweight bicycle tyre-track.
