Why buy an electric bike?

Electric bikes are increasingly seen as the best mode of transport in urban centres of the future.

Why should you buy an e-bike? You may wish to get into town to do your business yet really don’t want the expense and pollution from using a car. You may be feeling your age so are nervous of using a pedal bike, and feel reassured with the extra power from an electric motor. You may wish to commute to work yet not want to arrive tired from cycling or have high blood pressure from the ever slower traffic in your car. Want a folding electric bike that you might be able to take on the train and into your office? We can help you with this too.

For leisure, electric mountain bikes enable you to do longer trails and routes more quickly, appreciating the countryside more and adding to the adrenaline of added speed that your legs might not otherwise allow! Again, for those who are older, e-bikes enable you to keep up with your friends when otherwise you may have lagged behind. Our own brand GreenEdge CS2 is our top selling Electric Mountain Bike, and well worth a mention...

There is a third element too: e-cargo-bikes are increasingly being used by companies as they see ever tighter pollution regulations making van use difficult, yet allowing your riders to do full eight hour shifts in the saddle where once they might have only been fit enough to do four.  

With total cost of ownership being almost negligible above that of pedal bikes, there are fewer and fewer reasons to not buy an e-bike!

E-Bikes Direct

Here at Electric Bicycles Direct we believe that you should be able to afford an electric bike regardless of your budget. You may only be able to afford less than £600 for a hub drive e-bike such as the Viking Hopper City e-bike, or you may have a budget that many others would use to buy a decent family car and be able to afford something from the Haibike Xduro range. You may want a sturdy yet mid range crank drive electric bicycle workhorse such as the Raleigh Motus range. Choose from our step-over electric bikes and step-through electric bike frames. Whatever you can afford we have an e-bike to suit your needs. We will not be beaten on price on any model of e-bike you consider.

E-Bikes Direct was the brainchild of founder Matt Flanagan when he was visiting China in 2004. There he saw electric bikes on nearly every street corner as the people of the country had already clearly embraced the machines as a favoured urban mode of transport. After importing a handful of Chinese e-bikes in 2005 and discovering a definite market in the UK, Matt invested his time and energy into developing E-Bikes Direct into the UK’s leading electric bikes retailer. We now stock the most comprehensive range of e-bikes of any retailer nationwide. 

Having been selling our machines for more than a decade, we have the in depth experience and knowledge to sell you not just any electric bike but the best e-bike to suit your personal needs. Our team puts you the customer first, sharing our wealth of experience to help you make the right choice.
