Warranty Information

Product Description

New for 2020, introducing the 52V Galiano Phaserunner SE

These bikes are custom made to order, and take up to three weeks depending on demand. One red is available now for immediate delivery.




The Galiano PhaseRunner SE features a 780 watt hour 52V battery, and a 30 amp Phaserunner controller for 1500 watts of peak hill climbing.  You get 107 Nm of torque off the line for quick starts, and for those all day rides, there is a handlebar dial that lets you choose a watt limit, basically any number you like from less than 100 up to 1500 watts.  The included Grin CycleAnalyst dashboard is customizable, and lets you geek out on figures like watt hours per km,  percentage of regen, and human watt hours.




This bike gives you the advantage of having open source electrics that can be updated as new advancements in motor, battery, or control tech become available.  You are not at the mercy with one brand like you are with a Bosch or Shimano based bike. You can also easily change speed or power limits as you see fit. (You must follow applicable laws in your province when riding on public roads.)





The 52V Galiano Phaserunner edition has a full suite of Grin Tech electronics.  If you have not heard of Grin, you are in for a treat!  Based in Vancouver BC, they are a world leading manufacturer of premium, open source compatible ebike conversion hardware and software.

The 52V Galiano Phaserunner edition has the following changes from the regular Galiano:

  • Grin GMAC geared motor with variable regen braking. (See this article explaining this revolutionary development in ebike motors here)
  • Grin Phaserunner advanced motor controller capable of up to 35A
  • Grin Cycle Analyst V3 display.  The standard for e-bike displays, allows custom tuning and customization for advanced users. 
  • Optional mountain bike style low rise handlebar and stem for a more aggressive riding stance.
  • Headlight changed out for the SPL-01 20 watt shaped beam LED light.  Has super bright 1900 lumen high beam. 600 lumen low beam and automatic daytime running light.  Handlebar button to turn on and select high or low beam.


What makes this bike using a Grin Technologies drive train so great?   It's Cutting edge, Canadian designed, open source, and upgradeable! 

Say next year a great new torque sensor comes out with much better response? Chances are it can be installed on this bike.  Grin is also always adding new and better software for the Cycle Analyst and Phaserunner that can be installed with a USB to serial cable and PC. Recently they added a GPS data logger that can be added to the Galiano Phaserunner SE.

This bike will accommodate batteries from 36 to 72V! 

We now have a rep in the Lower Mainland.  JT has a 36V Galiano ST available for demos.  Contact him directly at 604-6034206 or 4naidus@gmail.com to set up a viewing.  He will have a Phaserunner SE in the spring

It all starts with the battery:



We use the popular Reention removable downtube battery system, then we add premium Samsung 30Q 15 Amp battery cells. With 5 in parallel the cells are capable of delivering 75 amps, while we only draw 30 amps maximum, ensuring that the cells will stay cool, deliver great power with minimal voltage sag, and have a long life.  


The supplied charger is a quality ETL approved 2 amp XVE brand, and is fully automatic, giving a full charge in about 3-6 hours, depending on the depth of discharge.


The optional Grin Satiator charger is programmed for an 85 or 100% charge, and the option of charging at 6 amps if you are in a hurry.  The 85% charge profile will extend the life of the battery significantly if you do not need the full capacity day to day.

The Pedal Assist System

We use a quality bottom bracket torque sensor. It measures spindle bend from the force on the cranks and also reads the pedaling cadence at 24 pulses per revolution, twice that of most BB torque sensors. The resulting signal is combined in the operating system, and your pedal effort is amplified in the motor.

We also provide a thumb throttle for those times when you need a little extra boost to get moving from a standstill. The throttle also controls the amount of regen braking, and while this may seem counter intuitive, it practice it works well. 


The Galiano PhaserRunner SE comes ready to ride, just rotate and tighten the handlebar, attach the pedals, and install the battery. 

We use name brand accessories like:

  • PC Plastics fenders
  • Super bright SPL-01 shaped beam LED headlight runs off main battery pack. Has high and low beam, and daytime running light
  • Spanninga LED rear light runs off main battery pack.
  • New! 2.4" Schwalbe Super Moto X puncture resistant tires.
  • KMC rust resistant chain
  • Suntour XCM front suspension fork
  • Large heavy duty rear rack with complementary bungies
  • Axa European style wheel lock
