Latest Review

Troubles were swiftly resolved!

I was helping a friend (Marcin) to buy his first e-mtb. After a long search online we found e-bikesdirect to stock the dream rig. We bought the bike which then got lost by the courier, eventually found win a smashed box and some scratches on frame. Throughout the process Garf was very concerned and helping out. He also compensated for the minor damages.

How much is an electric bike?

The cost of an electric bike in the UK varies widely depending on the type, brand, and features of the bike. On average, you can expect to pay between £500 and £3,000. Entry-level models typically start around £500 to £1,000, offering basic features and shorter battery life. Mid-range electric bikes, which generally cost between £1,000 and £2,000, come with better components, longer battery life, and more power. High-end models, priced from £2,000 to £3,000 or more, provide premium features such as advanced suspension systems, higher speeds, and extended battery range. Additionally, specialist or custom-built electric bikes can exceed £3,000. Keep in mind that prices may also vary based on promotions and seasonal discounts.

How fast can an electric bike go?

In the UK, electric bikes are legally limited to a top speed of 15.5 mph (25 km/h) when powered by the electric motor. However, you can pedal faster than this speed if you wish. Some high-end models may offer higher speeds for off-road use, but for public roads, the motor assistance will cut off once you reach the legal limit.

How to remove speed limiter on electric bike?

Tampering with the speed limiter on an electric bike is not recommended and can have serious legal and safety implications. In the UK, electric bikes are legally required to have a speed limiter that restricts motor assistance to 15.5 mph (25 km/h). Removing or disabling this limiter can make your bike illegal for road use, void any warranties, and potentially lead to fines or other legal consequences. Additionally, it can pose significant safety risks.
If you need a faster bike, consider purchasing a model designed for higher speeds and ensure it complies with local laws for off-road or private use. Always prioritise safety and legal compliance when modifying or using your electric bike.

How old do you have to be to ride an electric bike?

In the UK, you must be at least 14 years old to ride an electric bike on public roads and paths. This age requirement applies to electrically assisted pedal cycles (EAPCs) that meet the legal standards for electric bikes, which include having a motor with a maximum power output of 250 watts and a top speed of 15.5 mph (25 km/h) when powered by the motor.

How much does it cost to charge an electric bike?

Charging an electric bike in the UK typically costs between 5p and 10p, depending on the battery capacity and the current electricity rate, making it a very cost-effective mode of transportation. For example, charging a 500Wh battery (0.5 kWh) would cost approximately 10p (0.5 kWh × 20p). This makes electric bikes a very cost-effective mode of transportation for short to medium distances.
