The V5 is the latest version of the golden motor magic pie  The Luna Cycle version of this kit is solid black which we think is a big improvement.

If you think you know the golden pie motor it has improved vastly with the vector sine wave controller. Now it is even more efficient, reliable, quiet and smooth.

Regarding Installation

Click here for install guide 

The Magic Pie v5 is an easy 30 minute install. The hardest part is installing the tire. You may run into difficulties with your drop out and may need to install drop outs.

The trickiest part is installing the screw on cassette (this piece is sold separately) so that your rear gears still work properly.
Make sure you use the spacer ring that comes in the kit between the motor and the freewheel. Also watching this video is highly recommended:

Professional wheel building



All our kits come with the option to be hand built into your choice of Alex wheels.  Our bicycle wheel builder is top notch. We use premium DT Swiss Champion spokes, brass nipples, quality spoke prep and your choice of Alex wheels.

We really recommend this option for a quality hub motor kit.... the stock rim made in china is much lower quality components and the spokes will need to tightened after a few rides.


Regarding battery Options

This kit comes with everything you need to convert your bicycle minus battery and charger which you can add now or later. 

Any of our 36, 48, or 52 volt batteries will work with this kit. 

52 volts will get you more power and higher top speed. 

48 volt battery will get you a little less power and top speed  but will be more reliable.

Once you have picked the voltage then you just need to pick the size. The higher the AH the farther the battery will take you.
A 10ah battery will give you 25 miles on average. A 20ah battery should get you 50 miles. More ah means bigger in size, more weight and harder to mount. 

This kit is pre-programmed for 48V/52V batteries.
If you want to use this kit with a 24V/36V battery you will need to reprogram the controller with the Golden Motors program wire for Vector controllers. This item is not included in the kit though we often have it in stock on the site if needed.

Installation and Important Documentation

For front hubmotors, we recommend using a torque arm (or two). See this link for what a torque arm is.

It is not advisable to use a front hub with suspension forks, we recommend using a rear hub if you have suspension fork.

After hubmotor installation it is recommended that you check spoke tension, tighten spokes if needed, and recheck tightness after the first few rides. All wheels should have spokes checked but handbuilt is better, generic option is machine laced from the factory which is not as high build quality as our hand-laced wheels using quality Alex rim, DT Swiss spokes and Spoke Prep. If you want the best wheelbuild out of the box you want the custom wheelbuild option.

Note: Standard generic rim 1.5". For wider rim go with custom built option
