    BESV PS1 | Lightest electric bike with Carbon Frame

  4. Electric Bike Price Match

    A customer asked me today if we can price match with another electric bike shop.

    The answer is almost always yes. We do offer electric bike price matching, but with a couple of exceptions.

    If another retailer is offering an unreasonably low price, we cannot reasonably match that. The retailer is most likely losing money on the deal and we're not interested in competing in that market.

    Or, it could be that the bike on offer is not new. Perhaps they're trying to clear a bike returned by a customer? Maybe it's shop-soiled or an ex-demonstrator?

    We are upfront about this and list all our ex-display electric bikes separately often with generous discounts on ultra low mileage, good-as-new bikes. We have electric bikes from Cube, Giant, Riese & Müller, Beatbike and electric mountain bikes from  Haibike. Continue reading
