We have varied models and brands to suit all shape and sizes. Some models are great for effortlessly taking on slopes, trails and generally rough terrain. Approaches to e-bikes have improved in recent years. For a while, they were seen by cyclists as cheating. And by non-cyclists as acting just like a bike, but far more expensive.
The new breed of electric bikes in 2020 appears sleeker and has seen a more reasonable pricing structure, something for everybody. The notion that the help of an e-bike but without all the sweat and effort is a great thing.
The absence of effort means you can finish up a bit chilly in the winter months. Fortunately, we have a significant clothing range in store to combat this very thing. But once spring and summer are here, that’s less of a worry. E-Bikes will only continue to increase in popularity in 2020.

How to choose the best electric bike for you
Cycling is an excellent hobby for several reasons: it’s free (after the original E-bike sale). It’s fantastic for your health, and in several cases, it can be quicker than cars and all most certainly faster than the UK’s public transport.
The E-bike brands take varying manufacturer approaches to electric bikes. Some like to put an electric motor in the rear wheel hub, with a torque sensor in the cranks that gives the on-board batteries a nudge to send more energy to the wheels.
Others situate the motor and sensor unit around the bike’s cranks, ensuring a more visually appealing and aerodynamic style can be formed. A growing number of new, premium e-bikes install the motor in the front wheel hub, which appears to give a much more consistent riding feel if you’re used to traditional bikes.
If you are used to a traditional bike, be aware that e-bikes are usually capped at 15.5mph. In most cases, that means the E-bike starts to seem like you are riding with the brakes on if you try to accelerate higher than the 15.5mph by pedalling.
However, if you’re realistic, 15mph is a pretty respectable speed when in town or taking on climbs. Once the realization occurs that you are meant to pedal lightly and let the E-Bike do the work.
E-bikes are great for commuting; they’ll pull you away from the traffic lights instantly, smooth out hills so but don’t presume that riding an E-bike implies you won’t get any exercise at all. They’re much better for you than taking the bus.
