About electric bikes

 

Electric Bikes consist of a modified or custom bicycle frame with pedals but include an electric motor, usually in the form of a hub motor, connected to the rear wheel. They allow a rider to either pedal the bike or leverage the power of a battery and motor drive system.

Steering, brakes and gears all work as you’d expect on a traditional bicycle. E-bikes help you pedal uphill and face inclines much more easily, and can go up to a maximum of 15 mph on the flat. They can also provide a fantastic mode of transport for those with mobility issues.

Overall they just significantly reduce the amount of exertion involved in cycling, especially if you're travelling short distances (which means you can use the electric motor a lot without running out of power).

 Electric bikes offer the freedom and independence of cycling for all fitness, mobility and ability levels.

Electric bikes can be taken on cycle paths, roads and in the countryside safely as with any standard bicycle.

Our fantastic range offers electric bikes to suit various budgets and uses. We have always placed design, performance and affordability at the forefront of what we do. We are an established brand within the e-bike industry and our experience and expertise extends further than many larger retailers.

At Cyclotricity we want to make cycling inclusive - electric bikes level the playing field allowing families and friends to cycle together regardless of fitness-begin the journey with us!

Client Testimonials

Hi Raj.
 
I just wanted to thank you for your kindness and help.
 
My dad who is 72 bought himself and his wife a kit each a couple of years back and he says it is the best thing he has ever done.  He stops and tells anyone who will listen that buying the bike has changed his life. He already had a bike but found it such a struggle to do anything other than ride around the streets so he didn’t really bother. He heard about electric bikes and went on a mission to find the best. He settled on Cyclotricity.  He started off cycling a short distance and then using his throttle to keep him going whilst he had a little rest.  Soon his fitness improved and now he goes out for miles and uses the throttle less but loves having the freedom to take on long distances. 
 
Best wishes

Dear Ben
 
I would just like to Thank you for the fantastic service that I received from your company. As you know I had an issue with my digital meter, I had a phone call from Ben at Cyclotricity the same day and this morning a new replacement had arrived.
This is fantastic service, I am so pleased that I purchased my bike through Cyclotricity. I will log onto your website and write a customer review and I am thinking in the summertime I may even purchase a electric bike for my wife, if and when I do I will certainly buy it through Cyclotricity.
 
Keep up the good work, I wish you all the success in 2017.
Normally people write in to complain but I feel that it's nice to tell people that they are doing things right.
 
Kind Regards

Hi Raj,
 
I just want to thank you for all your support through this build. You were/ are a great help!! Thanks for getting the technical team involved where necessary!
 
I feel like I should hire a model to stand next to the bike, to be able to send you a very nice photo!! As it is I will be wise and you will appreciate it if the photo is only of the bike and doesn't have me anywhere near!!
 
Have a good day!
