If the hub and battery on the old emate are good then a system upgrade will be about £100 for a nice KT kit.
My Grand kids have already butchered my Emate for guards, rack, lights and front wheel - a total destruct! The hub had packed up & it was the 2011 model so there were no spares to be had from Oxygen. Thanks for the reply.

The 3 x 6 is 18 settings, low, med and high are power settings each giving a bit more current & then each power setting having 6 speeds. Select high & 6 for max power and speed.

All the electrical parts are standard. You can use just about any ebike motor you want without modification. The motor is the one thing that's plug-and-play accross different types. All the other electrical parts can be swapped for alternatives. You don't have to use Oxygen ones because they were never Oxygen in the first place but standard Chinese Catalogue parts.

When a bike like that starts to get tired, it's a good opportunity to upgrade to the latest parts rather than get direct exact replacements, so you can get a better control system, more range, lighter bike, more power, or whatever you want.

The later Oxygens had the LiShui Controllers with C500 and then C600 LCDs, where you get three maximum power levels (eco, normal and power), which you set before starting your ride then you have 6 max speed settings to select while riding. Each speed setting has a similar power algorithm that ramps down power as you approach the max speed for each. The three power levels aren't much use. Most people never adjust them, but they are handy for lighter riders to reduce power and get longer range.

The latest Oxygens no longer have this feature, as they use different controllers and LCDs

Thanks Andy. I don't think I can get a throttle on the 2021 Oxygen bikes. Its the hills which I am worried about & Oxygen have this selection of 3 x 6 power options which I trying to get more info on.
Do a search on the forum... someone on here has changed the controller and lcd on a new (ex demo model I think) version to fit a throttle that came with a kit.

I'm sure it will do you proud :)

Not updated the thread for ages again.
Bike still going extremely well, had it for over two years now, no major faults to report, just the regular changing of wearing parts to keep it in best condition.
Think I've done over 3000 miles on it now :)
