ZiZZO Liberte Owners Get Ready For the E-Kit

by Beau Grant on September 22, 2023

As we are getting really close to launching the ZiZZO Convertible E-Kit we have been spending some time on previous blogs sharing some info to get you prepared. We want anyone interested in considering purchasing the kit to be as informed as possible to make a decision that is best for you so there are no surprises. If you haven’t had a chance to check out the YouTube installation series, we highly suggest checking them out at this link.  

Over a couple of years, we spent a lot of time and effort to put together a kit to work with all ZiZZO models past and present. It had to be a kit that followed our core principles and had the ability to work with all models, so nobody was left out.  For the installation process we felt that adding the rack with the battery, new brake levers, rear hub drive wheel, and the simple color-coded wiring was straight forward for all ZiZZO models. The only challenge that we were going to have was finding a bottom bracket PAS sensor to work on all the bikes. All of the models have a similar bottom bracket setup except one, the Liberte. The Liberte was designed as the lightest ZiZZO model and came with a higher end upgraded style bottom bracket. The Liberte's features were decided way before there ever was a consideration of an E-Kit. As we were searching for the PAS sensor that you need to fit on to the bottom bracket for the E-Kit there was nothing available for the Liberte. So rather than exclude our family of Liberte owners we realized the best way to make it compatible was to convert the bottom bracket the same style as the Urbano. Since we were changing the bottom bracket that meant we also had to change out the crankset. Once we ordered and received the parts, we made the changeover with no hassles.

You can find the parts we used at the following links if you are interested 

Crank Arm   Bottom Bracket

If you would like to view our YouTube video to see what the process is to change out the original bottom bracket of the Liberte to a cartridge style bottom bracket click here. Once the bottom bracket has been changed out to the same style as the Urbano you are ready to move forward on the full E-Kit installation.

Once again, our installation series on YouTube can be found here at this link. We hope that everyone understands what is involved in this installation process and can decide based on their confidence/knowledge of working on bikes if it is something they are ready for. If not, please contact a local bike shop to see if it is something they can do.  

We know that the E-Kit is exactly what you were looking for to add a little extra fun to your ZiZZO riding experience. If you have any questions about the E-Kit please check this link to our FAQ and as always you can call us at 1-866-788-2202 or email us at support@zizzo.bike

Hello Mary and great question!
The kit will ADD about 18 LBS to the bike.
Please keep this in mind:
The kit weighs 24LBS. However, you will be removing the original/stock rear wheel (approx -6LBS). This means that overall weight difference is 18 LBS.
Please let us know if you have any other questions.
