An electric bike Christmas

Only problem is getting it down the chimney

Melanie Reid writes in today’s Times about how electric bikes are emerging as a favourite gift this Christmas.

“When things come in clusters, you know you have a trend on your hands. Randomly, at least three girlfriends have announced they want an electric bike for Christmas.”

She continues with a brisk summary of the benefits of electric bikes: how the rider feels younger, is transported back in time to the youthful joy of cycling, “the feeling of being nine years old again and everything works”. Continue reading “An electric bike Christmas”

50cycles Electric Bikes Cycle Show 2016

20160922_093923The Cycle Show 2016 is now in full swing at the Birmingham NEC. We attended our first Cycle Show in London back in 2004 with a somewhat home-made stand. It was actually a great success for us at a time when electric bikes weren’t even really a niche product. Today they’re an established and growing segment of the bicycle market and our early start means we’re still leading the way.

Full Stock of E-Bikes for Summer & New Video Reviews

Fully stocked in time for Summer

Several large shipments from Kalkhoff have arrived this month, with enough bikes to meet demand for our most popular models through the height of the season.

Electric bike stock

Best-selling models like the 2016 Agattu Premium 8G with Belt Drive and new Pro Connect 9G (with larger 14.5Ah battery) are available in all frame styles and sizes once more. 

The latest Integrale 10-speed is here in good numbers too, as are other Impulse Evo models like the Integrale S11, Integrale S10 and the Include Premium
 
The new Integrales and Includes all come with our largest 17Ah integrated battery pack, Smart Navigation and more powerful Impulse Evo and Evo RS motors. See our video review story below for more on these models.
 
We even have a couple of Small and Medium Tasman 17Ah step thru back in stock for the first time in months. 
 
The Tasman is a very well equipped town bike, with 8-speed hub gears, adjustable stem, built-in lock and attractive black and bronze paintwork.
 
 
But not so many of these…
 
However, there are very few of the Pro Connect 10, semi-folding Sahel Compact and Integrale 8 Belt left in stock, only low single figures in certain sizes, none in others. 
 
So, if you’re interested in any of these models, they’re likely to sell out soon. And with good reason, they’ve picked up some glowing, enthusiastic reviews this year.
 
All prices include VAT and free UK shipping, of course, and all bikes are fully-equipped with lights, luggage rack, kickstand, EU/UK charger, ergonomic handgrips and saddles, 2-year warranty and the support of the Britain’s most experienced e-bike supplier.
 
 
Loughborough Showroom

Loughborough Showroom Saturday Opening

One of the best things about our relocation has been the creation of a much-improved, dedicated showroom area. Improved accessibility also means we’ve been able to open on Saturday on a regular basis in Loughborough for the first time.

 
Anthony, previously manager of our busy Bristol showroom, will be on hand to show you around the bikes, send you off on your test rides and even, so I’m told, offer you a hot drink.
 
Our Loughborough showroom is open 10am – 4pm tomorrow and every Saturday this Summer.

You have to see these Kalkhoff E-Bike videos from California

New Wheel Include ReviewThe New Wheel electric bike store in San Francisco does a roaring trade in Kalkhoff e-bikes. As you’d expect from a Bay Area business, they’re very slick and have recently produced a series of exceedingly professional and informative video reviews of three key 2016 Kalkhoff models, all of them using the Impulse Evo system.

We’re so impressed we’ve dropped them into the review pages. You can see their Integrale S11, Integrale 8 and Include Premium 8 videos on our respective review pages.

If you’re reading this email on the West Coast of the US, you should definitely pay The New Wheel a visit and give them your business. 

Which of our current bikes would you most like to see a video review of on our website? Some of our team are keen to see what we can do.
