  1. 7 Reasons to Ride Electric Bikes in London

    7 Reasons to Ride Electric Bikes in London

    Electric bikes in London are one of the best ways to travel around the capital. Cheap, practical and fun, electric bikes offer many advantages over other London transport options.

    If you're tired of waiting for buses, sick of squeezing onto the tube, fed up with waiting in traffic or too tired to pedal cycle everywhere, an electric bike is for you. Electric bikes in London have the power to boost your range, improve your mood and deliver you at your destination feeling fresh and ready to go. Not tired and ready to drop, or in need of a shower.

    Electric bikes are wildly popular across Europe. Nearly three-quarters of a million were sold in Germany in 2017, about half of all bikes by value sold in the Netherlands are now electric.

  2. 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
