Buying An Electric Bike

They are everywhere, and now more than ever, people are reaping the benefits of an eco-friendly, cost effective and healthy mode of green commute transport.

In light of the current climate change dilemma we find ourselves in, battery-powered pedal assist bikes have shone through the clouds of the pandemic as THE mode of transport to use. Backed by a Government plea to reduce our use of public transport & make the most of our daily exercise - pretty much everything an electric bike stands for, the question is not whether to buy an electrci bike, it is when will I buy an electric bike.

So What Kind Of Electric Bike Suits My Lifestyle Best?

Perhaps you are a city goer who is tired of the manic tube rush and congestion charges? Someone with limited storage and a commute that doesn't quite justify hopping in the car? A Folding Electric Bike could solve all of your problems.

Maybe you are a once savvy cyclist who's looking to reignite an old flame, but you are running low on fuel? You will find that pedal assisted adrenaline in an Electric Mountain Bike.

If you live out in the country with shops few & far between, but errand runs don't warrant a car? You might require a machine that caters for a hybrid of purpose, a comfortable & reliable means of transport that won't break the bank? Check out our Hybrid Electric Bikes! Our Basis brand is a great place to start, and no middle-man, means no middle fee!

For fun, as well as practicality. Although an E-Bike is seen as a solution by most, there are some Brands and models that are designed purely for smiles per gallon. e-MTB has evolved to a ridiculous level, with models from the likes of Haibike pushing up to 120NM torque with some of the most innovative technology in the industry. Promoted by professional MTB riders like Sam Pilgrim & Matt Jones, e-MTB could now be described as the new age. So, if you are fuelled by adrenaline and fancy a little extra mayhem, a Competitive Electric Mountain Bike could tick all of your boxes! Haibike, Lapierre, Merida & Cube are great Brands to start with.


A common misconception with Electric Bikes is the cost... Many will be deterred by the "Electric" tag as that usually screams expensive, but nowadays you can spend as little as £700, which, is a pretty average cost for a traditional MTB really! With a few sacrifices made with battery range and componentry prestige for this money you will still find a reliable companion with plenty of juice to get you from A-B, and perhaps back to A!

Basis Electric Bikes

Basis Electric Bikes is the E-Bikes Direct home baked and exclusive entry level E-Bike brand. Our brand ethos is to provide a broad range of affordable and reliable bikes that appeal to riders of all corners of the spectrum. Starting with the Basis Osprey Folder and Beacon e-MTB which proved immensely popular to city goers and adventurists, we have grown the brand yearly, adding models of different styling and purpose to form a well-rounded & established range.

Electric Trikes & Cargo Bikes

Adapting as the industry does. We have seen a growing demand for the once niche pockets of electric assisted vehicles such as E-Cargo Bikes & E-Trikes. With food delivery taking the world by storm and built up areas suffering from pollution and congestion, Cargo Bikes are depicted by commercial corporations as THE solution, which, given the heavily weighted pro's is no wonder. We're expanding this pocket of the industry in real time, so keep an eye out!

Electric Tricycles are a great solution to cycling stability issues. Usually formed around an easy-entry frame with handy storage and all of the usual E-Bike goodies, these may appeal to those adventurists with a declining confidence on 2 wheels. Although not as widely stocked, see our Electric Trike range or get in touch to enquire and we will see how we can help.

In a nut shell, regardless of budget, purpose or rider specifics, we have something to suit all, down to an E.
