I chose an electric bike so that, having retired at the age of 62, I could go for much longer rides around the hilly parts of the East Midlands than when I rode a traditional pedal cycle.
Having researched the idea on Google, looking at suppliers and reading feedback from tests carried out by users, I noted that there are a good number of makes of imported cycles at inflated prices, so I homed in on a small number of UK suppliers who have received good feedback and are respected in the market.
I found the Electric Bike Store on Ebay, my favoured market place, and compared the prices and quality of the bikes on offer with those on other sites.
I am very pleased with my Volt electric bike. The controls are easy to use, and the quality of parts used are far superior to those on other electric bikes and indeed pedal cycles.
I have received excellent service from The Electric Bike Store during the buying process and after-sales follow up.
