We’re clearing last season’s Kalkhoff and Focus ex-display electric bikes from our showrooms, so it’s a great time to pick up a bargain for yourself, a relative or friend.

Some of these bikes have no miles at all, some have a few dozen and a small number have clocked up hundreds of miles in short test rides. They’ve all been regularly cleaned, checked and serviced. Continue reading “Ex-Display Electric Bikes”

We’ve joined the growing number of cycle shops on Britain’s high streets by opening a couple of new showrooms this year.

The  Focus Thron Premium Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bike with Impulse 2.0 motor and 17Ah battery pack – also used by the 2014 Kalkhoff electric bike range – picked up ExtraEnergy’s Offroad Award this year. One of them has been sitting in our Shoreham-by-Sea showroom looking menacing and today was the day I decided to take it out on the South Downs Way to see what it can do. “What can’t it do?”, more like!
