Our first ever electric bike was stolen. Here’s how we got it back.

2001 Honda Step Compo folding electric bike

The idea of 50cycles Electric Bikes became a reality one day in August 2003 when our first electric bike arrived  in the UK. It was a little Honda Step Compo that had been hand-packed and despatch from Tokyo by my brother and 50cycles co-founder Scott Snaith.  The very same bike was stolen from us late last year, but now it’s back in our possession and on display in our new London showroom.

Electric Mountain Bike Review

Focus Thron 2.0 electric mountain bike at Devil’s Dyke near Brighton
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.

So that’s how 500 miles feels, in a little under 8 weeks I have covered this distance since taking delivery of my Focus electric mountain bike. Continue reading “Electric Mountain Bike Review”

Ex-Display Electric Bikes

London Electric Bike Showroom
Electric bike showroom in East Sheen, London

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”

Bristol 50cycles Showroom Free Car Park

Getting into Bristol by car is easy. The M32, A48 and A4 take you right into the heart of the city. This means that access from Bath, Cardiff, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Wiltshire is all relatively pain free.

Once you’re in the city, finding parking isn’t that hard. There are various multi-story car parks dotted around the city centre, all within a 5 minute walk to our shop. Most of our customers use the Holiday Inn NCP multi-story just across the road from us. This is well sign-posted on all approaches into the city.

If you’re planning a visit of a couple of hours to find that perfect Kalkhoff Electric bike, and don’t like the idea of paying through your nose in parking fees we have free parking around the back of the shop.

To get to our car park, you need to use the following address.

50cycles Car Park, Barrs Court, Bristol, BS1 3JP

Bristol Showroom Car Park

Please call 50cycles Bristol on 0117 925 4419 before you plan to visit, so we can ensure that we do have a car park space for you at the time.
