Why choose us?
Our shop floor team have all used E-Bikes and know every system inside out! We were the first company on the South Coast to take electric bikes seriously and in doing so we have experience in all motor systems. Our team of mechanics in our bike shops in Dorset are fully trained in Shimano, Bosch, Yamaha and Brose and carry out software updates regularly.
But first, what is an E-bike?
Electric bikes, also known as E-bikes, feature all the characteristics of regular push bikes with the advantageous addition of three components: an integrated electric motor, rechargeable battery, sensor and sometimes an electric display.
E-bikes allow cyclists to go further than before with power-assisted pedalling and high-performance design. With this added assistance, e-bikes make pedalling a whole lot easier so you can handle tougher inclines whilst still getting a great workout.
So, whether you are into dynamic road bikes or sturdy mountain bikes, enhance your ride and accelerate with ease with an E-bike.
