FreeGo e-Bike Spares at E-Bikes Direct

FreeGo Spare Parts? We have you covered here at E-Bikes Direct!

The European Union has imposed hefty tariffs on Chinese e-bike makers. In some cases the duty on bikes is close to 80%. This has already had a big impact with the UK e-bike maker FreeGo going into liquidation in January. Working closely with FreeGo for many years distributing their bicycles we were very saddened and upset to see our friends leave the Electric Bike arena. Having distributed and sold 1000’s of FreeGo bikes over the years it’s imperative that we can still support our customer base, so for those of you who own FreeGo bikes there is now less of a worry as we are stocking a wide range of FreeGo spare parts to help you keep your machine on the road for years to come.

Anti Dumping Measures

Towards the end of last year the European Commission imposed ‘anti-dumping’ duties on e-bikes made in China.

This was nothing sudden. E-bikes Direct has been part of a group of companies fighting these anti-dumping measures for some years as we believe that the industry as a whole will suffer if there are only expensive European machines on the road. We believe anyone should be able to afford an e-bike, not just those with four figures in the bank.

FreeGo suffered because it bought in bikes from China that suddenly rocketed in price and made their machines unaffordable to make at the same price point as they used to sell them. Here at E-Bikes Direct we have long been fans of the Southampton based company as they built very high quality machines at a very affordable price point. Since we specialise in selling at the affordable end, we sold quite large volumes of them.

FreeGo Spare Parts

When a manufacturer goes under it can mean the end of the road for those who own the machines. If a £30 set of FreeGo round brake pads wasn’t available it is conceivable that you might have to chuck the machine in the tip! This is why we at E-Bikes Direct have done a spot of shopping ourselves to ensure we can help going forward.

All sorts of parts can go wrong on an electric bike. This is why we sell everything from brake levers that include the electrical cutout to the LCD display for older models and even a magnetic disc for all machines that FreeGo used to make. Do you need a wiring loom for your machine? We have those too!

For people who have bought a FreeGo bike over the years a replacement battery may be necessary. This is the bike’s ‘power source’ and will need replacing over time, so you will be glad to know that we stock a range of those too! Do head over to our FreeGo parts page to see what else we have in stock.

You can rely on E-Bikes Direct!

While we would love to sell you a new bike we also appreciate that it would be a real bummer if you had to chuck an otherwise good machine in the tip over not being able to get an otherwise silly and cheap spare part! We stock a wide range of FreeGo spare parts and hope that we will still see these fantastic machines on the road for years to come. Fix not replace! Happy riding!
