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”
It’s Kalkhoff’s flagship model for 2016 and it’s making new owners very happy.
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.
What makes electric bikes safer in London?
My experience of riding both electric bikes and pedal cycles, as well as conversations with other ebike riders, offers an answer: Yes, emphatically so. E-bikes are safer, faster and more fun. Continue reading “Electric bikes safer in London”

With the most striking looks of any Kalkhoff electric bicycle, the Sahel Comfort has a level of style and equipment that is unique. It shares the latest 250W high assistance motor, Panasonic Lithium battery pack and Busch & Muller LED lights with several other models, but the Brooks aged leather saddle and handgrips, couple with excellent Magura hydraulic rim brakes, are reserved for the Sahel Comfort alone.
I rode the Trek (Bionx Trek FX+ electric bike) and generally found it a bit disappointing – it didn’t help as much as I had hoped on any incline (and I was trying it without James and his trailer).I then tried several Kalkhoff bikes – they were all much better and I thought the heavier build suited my trailer needs better. In the end, I purchased a Kalkhoff Sahel Comfort.It works brilliantly with James and his new trailer – the hub gears are something which I would have avoided but they are ideal for casual riding, especially when you are forced to stop unexpectedly with a heavy load. I had also planned to ride a Cytronex bike – the company were really helpful and helped me avoid a long, long drive to try out a bike which almost certainly would have been less suitable than the Kalkhoff.Fergus, LancashireHas fully met my expectations. Had no problem and found the range good, although I don’t have a long commute and might not be the ideal person to judge. Has certainly kept a few disagreeable sweat pearls away. Lang lebe Kalkhoff!Rolf, LondonI selected the bike after considerable research and it has met all of my expectations. I’m delighted with it.Michael, Buckinghamshire
