BH Evo Electric Bikes – Exceedingly Powerful E-bikes

Introducing BH Evo Electric Bikes

We know what most people want from an electric bike is plenty of power. It’s the power to flatten hills, cut through headwinds and make hauling heavy loads easy that appeals. And it’s the power that brings you back for more and longer rides.

Power is especially important in some areas. To feel confident when navigating through busy streets at rush hour, you need as much as possible. The ability to rapidly increase your speed when crossing a junction really sets electric bikes apart from pedal cycles. Once you’ve tried it, you wouldn’t want to ride in traffic without electric assistance. It makes that much difference to your ride.

BH Electric Bikes UK at 50cycles

Introduction to BH Electric Bikes at 50cycles

It’s the biggest news for 50cycles and our customers in many years.

We have signed an exclusive deal with renowned manufacturer BH to bring their electric bike range to the UK.

BH has been a significant player in the electric bike market for many years. Their EasyMotion brand is already a huge success across Europe and, unusually, even in the United States.

But BH has never quite broken through in the UK in the same way that brands like Kalkhoff, Haibike and Specialized have.

That’s about to change Continue reading “BH Electric Bikes UK at 50cycles”

Electric bikes: THE catalyst for making the UK a better place to live

I had a realisation the other day, while riding my Winora Yakun e-bike along the coast to Brighton and back.

Electric bikes: THE catalyst for making the UK a better place to live 1Electric bikes make things happen more quickly. I can fit more things into a day when I’m on my electric bike. But hold on, isn’t that what cars are supposed to be good at? Sort of, but every time I get in a car to go somewhere I’m sealing myself up in a metal box (an unbearably hot metal box at this time of year), wait in queues of traffic, hoping I’ll find somewhere to park.

Electric Bikes Brighton: they are taking over in Brighton & Hove

E-bikes spotted here, there and everywhere in Brighton and on the South Coast
Electric Bikes Brighton: they are taking over in Brighton & Hove 2I’ve been riding to
our e-bike shop in Shoreham-by-Sea every day this week and something has changed. Electric bikes are suddenly everywhere in Brighton. Every third or fourth cyclist I encounter along my 12-mile journey is riding an electric bike these days.

Today alone I saw an Ancheer electric bike, a couple of Raleighs and a couple of Haibike, a Batribike, a Carrera, a couple of Kalkhoffs, something that looked a kit-built ebike and a no-name folding electric locked up by the Palace Pier. These were some of the e-bikes I spotted on the cycle path between the Marina and Hove Lagoon, there may have been more I missed.

It’s not just the sunshine either. Today was glorious but even on duller days I see at least half a dozen e-bikes. Continue reading “Electric Bikes Brighton: they are taking over in Brighton & Hove”
