The Cycle Show 2016 Preview
We're exhibiting at the Cycle Show 2016 at Birmingham's NEC and we're bringing more bikes to see and test ride than ever before.
Not just Kalkhoff e-bikes either, we'll have machines from Raleigh, Giant, Winora, Haibike and Scott, reflecting our expansion into new brands and categories.
There'll be dozens of bikes on both our stand J141 in the E-Bike Zone and on the e-bike test track nearby.
Free Service Plan Show Offer
If you come to the show, find the bike for you and place an order, we'll give you a free service plan. Details on that to follow....
Here are some of the highlights
Giant Road E+1 (test track and stand)
An electric bike with drop handlebars? Yes, and a Yamaha motor too. This unique model from Giant will be available to ride at the show for the first time. The Giant Road E+2 is also available from 50cycles.
Raleigh Strada (test track and stand)
This is a very clever, lightweight bike built around Shimano's STEPs centre motor and Di2 electronic gears. It'll select your gear automatically, ensuring you're always able to ride with maximum efficiency.
Kalkhoff Integrale 10 (test track and stand)
This award winner has the power, looks and brains you'd expect from Kalkhoff's flagship model. The latest Impulse Evo 250W motor, 17Ah battery integrated into the downtube, dual headlights and Smart Navigation software make this one of the most well-equipped and best-performing e-bikes on the market.
On my travels around Europe this Summer one bike caught my eye and fired my imagination more than any other. At its heart is Yamaha's new PW-X motor. Not only is it more compact and lighter than the old PW power plant, it's a lot more powerful too. The Yakun Plain, Tour and Urban e-bikes are the only e-bike built for towns and cities to feature PW-X. It has many other winning characteristics too.
It's so new we may be unable to let it out on the test track, but we will be taking pre-orders for delivery in the New Year. The new Pro Connect?
Here's what we plan on bring to the show. This may be subject to change, depending on availability.

E-Bikes at Stand J141
If you're planning to visit, make sure to come and say hello to us on Stand J141 in the E-Bike Zone. It's our biggest showing at this event, with more bikes, staff and test ride opportunities than ever, including some UK exclusives, as you'd expect from Britain's leading electric bike specialist.
