  1. BESV PS1 | Lightest electric bike with Carbon Frame

    BESV PS1 | Lightest electric bike with Carbon Frame
    We're often asked "so what's your lightest electric bike?" and "sounds great - how heavy is it?" Seems weight is a big factor for people buying an electric bike, up there with price and range.

  3. 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

    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.

    So that’s how 500 miles feels, in a little under 8 weeks I have covered this distance since taking delivery of my Focus electric mountain bike. Continue reading

    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.
