Where to buy an Electric Bike

Hi Guys,

I've been looking into owning an Electric Bike recently. I'm just not sure where to buy one from.

I want to stay away from the likes of Halfords etc who I think just jump on the bandwagon. I think a place that just does Electric Bikes will be better. I'm based in Hertfordshire and a local company comes up, www.electricbikes-conversions.com

Has any one dealt with these before? Bikes look pretty good in the pictures. Will look at calling them and seeing if I can go for a test ride this week if I get the time. Just thought Id ask the question to see what people thought before I make the phone call.

For the record I've just phoned these guys up. Really helpful, seem to sell both E Bikes and kits to convert your own bike. Think I will stick to an E Bike. Ill let you know how I get on. I'm going there tomorrow afternoon

Went there yesterday. Really friendly bunch. Went through all the different E-Bikes they had and where going to be selling going forward. Let me test ride the ones they have on their website. I decided to go with 500 Watt rear motor Dynamic MTX300 electric mountain bike. , really happy with my purchase.

If anyone is local to these guys, I recommend checking them out. Couldn't be anymore helpful.

If you are looking for quality ebikes, I suggest you to go for El Hoj ebike store, which really have quality collections in affordable price. You can check here the collection Köp din elcykel hos Elhoj.
