    Any Falco emotors kit owners here?

    I'm looking very seriously at a rear wheel kit from Falco. However, the one thing that has made it a hard sell (or is that buy) for me, is that while they sound great, and very advanced.. I cannot seem to find anyone who owns one to talk about it.

    Optimally, someone who owns one, installed it themselves, and would be willing to answer some questions about how it went, what kind of documentation was involved, and such like that.


    The system looks pretty simple, but I'm also pretty simple, so I'm hoping to figure out whats involved before buying one, from someone not looking to sell me the product.

    No I don't own FALCO, but
    I have tried 500W and 750W versions and was really impressed.
    THis is only hub ebike drive I would recommend, 5 year warranty tells it all.
    Sure other China run-off-the -mill cheap kits can carry you from A to B.
    But:
    for how long and how.
    here is the link where you can read what owners say:
    notice it is mainly DIY forum so ignore those malicious comments

    I've had good luck with a Dillenger 350w system and the price is about one third that of Falco (I'm sure to be criticized for this post). Falco is manufactured in India (AFAIK); that doesn't impress me much. Also, since you've been forwarded to ES, several members have had excellent success with YESCOM 1000w systems which are < $300 for everything but the battery. Sorry, that doesn't answer your question about Falco, but I haven't read any reviews by ES members. Their kickstarter effort was more of a kickstopper.

    bike-on and busybee are owners in the link above ,
    there are more threads about FALCO on ES for sure where bike-on contributes a lot.
    The name of this thread is:
    "Any Falco emotors kit owners here".

    As I said, there would be a detractor who doesn't own a Falco either. Guess he didn't realize that the name of this thread is "Any Falco emotors kit owners here". That kickstopper campaign by Falco that was referenced (it was one of the lowest funded ever) and the lack of reviews seem to show what ES members think about overpriced Indian junk. I was just trying to be helpful with my own experience about a product that is still on the market not companies that couldn't sustain enough business to remain viable or had to beg for money to stay in business.
