We’ve always put electric bike reviews at the centre of our website. I remember the first review we ever received, from one of our Honda Step Compo owners, back in 2003. But this one is one of the best.
Ex-Display Electric Bikes
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”

The Impulse and Bosch motor systems debuted around the same time several years ago and both have gone on to dominate the high quality electric bike market. They’re both highly versatile e-bike systems, powering commuter e-bikes, power-assisted mountain bikes and comfortable town bikes.
Both systems are into the second and third generations now, with increases in power as well as functional and ergonomic improvements. The latest versions even offer on-board navigation systems.
We’ve joined the growing number of cycle shops on Britain’s high streets by opening a couple of new showrooms this year.
Our Bristol electric bike showroom does stand alone in that area of the city, but we’re directly opposite established cycle businesses in both our Shoreham-by-Sea (handy for Brighton, Worthing and the rest of Sussex) and East Sheen, London locations.

So we’ve posted this in all our showroom windows Continue reading “Not another bike shop?!”
