Leigh Emmerson is an engineering graduate and self-confessed gadget addict. His love of technology and cycling intersected in 2015 when he bought his first e-bike. After a lot of miles and a lot of fun, he decided it was time to upgrade to a higher spec model.
It was then he came to the realization that the best way to get a better spec e-bike – without spending a fortune – was to build it himself!
This has since become a bit of an obsession, as he continues converting bikes to electric with various kits. Much to his partner’s annoyance, he rarely gets round to selling them afterwards – which is why his double garage has no space for a car. It’s full of bikes.
