Die Electric Bike Solutions GmbH gehört zu den führenden Anbietern von Umbausätzen und Akkus für Elektrofahrräder. Im zukunftsorientierten Bereich der Elektromobilität zeichnet sich Ebike Solutions durch eine besonders innovative Geschäftsidee aus: Wir verwandeln Ihr Fahrrad in ein Elektrorad.

The company was founded in 2009 by Thilo Gauch and Philipp Walczak, who were also the only employees in the first months. Today the garage company has grown into a small medium-sized enterprise with over 30 employees. The team consists of experienced specialists in bicycle mechanics and motor technology, bicycle sales, electrical engineering and battery construction, business administration and communication
Our team offers you a wide range of services around the electric bicycle:
- Extensive and free advice from qualified personnel
- Complete conversion of bicycles including Germany-wide pick-up and return
- Sales and maintenance of technically high-quality conversion kits for e-bikes and pedelecs
- Spoke hub motors in impellers
- Planning and production of individual batteries based on the latest technologies
- Replacement and repair of in-house and third-party manufactured batteries
In addition, we can look back on a large number of successful special projects and prototypes. Our drives have already been driven in the Russian Taiga and in the Australian outback. Of course, we ourselves are also electrically driven and use our own bikes as technology carriers. Due to these continuous tests we can offer you conversion kits that are ideally tailored to your needs.
The company's history
During a year abroad in San Francisco in 2009, the budding chemist Philipp Walczak constructed his first electric bike. He retrofitted a Dahon folding bike with a wheel hub motor from a Canadian pioneering company in the electric bike industry. This motor was powerful enough to climb any incline silently, without emissions and above all effortlessly. Inspired by the design of the Tesla Roadster, also developed in California, he created the battery from lithium-ion cells used in laptops. Today, these energy storage devices have become established in electric vehicles due to their high energy density.
Back in Germany, business economist Thilo Gauch took a test drive. His enthusiasm for silent acceleration gave rise to the joint business idea: Ready-to-use conversion kits consisting of motor, battery and accessories should enable every customer to convert his bicycle into an electric bicycle. After developing a sustainable business concept, Electric Bike Solutions GmbH (EBS) was founded in Heidelberg on 22 June 2009.
The order processing and shipping was initially still done in a garage. In September 2010, the company moved into a 180 sqm workshop with storage space and offices. Since July 2014 the office of Ebike Solutions is located in Carl-Bosch-Straße 2. There the team supports customers on site, by phone and via the internet. The spacious hall houses the workshop and warehouse as well as the showroom for the bicycles on display.
As a commercial enterprise, we are aware of our social responsibility and have counted ourselves among the companies providing training since 2012.
Load bikes have been inspiring us for a long time. Our first load bike was a Yuba Mundo, with which we have been doing our shopping since 2012 and which amazes the Heidelbergers. By mid-2013, the market and the company had developed to such an extent that the professional sale of load bikes became a serious option. After long research, extensive test rides and a lot of development work, we are now able to offer some of the best load bikes in the world. In our showroom we have various transport bikes available for test rides. In our two online shops e-lastenrad.de and www.yubaeurope.com you can find information about cargo bikes and find a large selection of two and three-wheeled family and transport bikes.
