This is the cheapest electric bike I can find new from a recognised retailer with warranty, returns policy, etc. Much of the cost is in the battery which means prices can't go much lower until batteries become much cheaper!

The price of electric bikes is falling but they are still expensive items, many being well over £1,000. This one is a non-folder with a single gear (note: Argos listing states Shimano gears in error), which keeps the cost and weight down. Mudguards and rack included (could be removed to save more weight if not wanted).

Argos backup if you're unhappy with it:

40 miles on one charge.
  • Steel frame.
  • 1 gear.
  • Front alloy V brake and rear alloy V brake brakes.
  • Steel forks.
  • Weight fully assembled 20kg.
  • 14 inch frame size.
  • 20 inch wheel size.
  • 26 to 32 inch inside leg measurements.
  • City style tyres.
  • Alloy rims.
  • Rear pannier holder.
  • Front and rear mudguards.
  • 20kg in weight mean it is easy to carry and store away.
  • Fully assembled.
  • Tyres and tubes are excluded from the guarantee.

Or, for £50 more, Argos offer this folder with 6 speed Shimano gears which may be more suitable for some users and, in my view, is probably a better buy overall: hotukdeals.com/dea…431

Cold, I'd rather by a cheap Halfords bike. Halfords a name you can trust!


Fair enough, but as you haven't identified a 'cheap Halfords bike' I've done it for you: their cheapest electric bike is £500:
halfords.com/cyc…-20.

It's a higher spec but I've also posted a similar one from Argos which is still cheaper:

You're clearly not riding hard enough if you've not worked up a sweat in a mile. Have you considered doing some race training to get your power output up a bit? ;-)

More seriously, don't be so dismissive and self-righteous - many people who wouldn't usually ride a bike choose to ride eBikes. Would you prefer that they go back to their cars? Personally, I'm happy with anyone who chooses to ride a bike, whatever it might be.
Any deals on cheap electric chairs for my mother-in-laws birthday?

Voted hot as it is what you say, a cheap electric bike.
Spec made me smirk; "20kg in weight mean it is easy to carry and store away"

Yes, understand your points but actually 20kg, though heavy, is less than many electric bikes weigh (including aluminium framed ones).

No gears at all...run out of battery and it is a difficult ride back...
How much would it actually cost to add gears? £10, £20?
Better with the deal above for £50 more IMHOP.

Frankly, that's true of all electric bikes. I've also posted another with gears and a folding mechanism for £50 more (see above).

Indeed, just updated my comment...
If you run out of battery and you are none too fit, 10 miles out without gears and a heavy small wheeled bike...not good.

Fair price for the bike though.
I prefer steel frame as it gives a softer ride plus they should last last a lifetime, aluminium frames suffer from fatigue and after a few years start to develop cracks which can quickly spread.

For anyone in Northern Ireland you need a moped licence, tax and insurance for one of these as decribed HERE
I notice the description says 3 modes of power but the control panel also seems to have a eco mode so wonder if it is actually 4 power assisted settings?

34325837-Z0o3H.jpg
Also states Shimano revoshift gears but can not see a rear derailleur so is it hub gears or is this an error by argos?

Thanks for the piece of critical information for those in NI which I had otherwise missed. The extra £55 registration fee, plus the requirement to wear a full motorcycle helmet and insurance is a complete deal breaker for me. Why NI has different legislation from the rest of the UK is beyond me.
Xiaomi scooter!
'40 miles on one charge.' I'd take that with a shovel of salt. If you pedal very gently and the route is perfectly flat (or downhill slightly would be nice) then you may get 40 miles out of a charge.

It depends where and how you use it. I commute 40 miles (20 each way) on my Yammaha powered leccy bike and it is claimed to do (up to) 95 miles on a charge. It's a hilly route and I try to go like the clappers so I only get about 35 miles out a charge, making the last 5 are a real challenge.

I think every parliament has it far share of idiots.
Damn, people are getting lazy.
Cold from me. Looks very low spec. No mention of battery power and capacity, or motor - kind of important with this sort of product. Personally I'd avoid, £400 is a lot of money to spend on a pile of c^*p!

Yeah, got a bike from there and the wheel was fitted so that it was pinching the inner tube and it caused an internal puncture on the 2nd day of riding. Fitting a tyre and inner tube should be a very basic skill.

To be fair, they are people too. On very low "customer service" training and a good "technical training". Their salary probably reflects this.
They can do with an improvement but people who work there especially in the bikes department are either incredibily talented or just a trainee/assistant. Happens with most businesses.
.
I wouldn't brush them off as they "suck". It's just their business/organisation culture is different to the likes of Apple Store maybe?
I don't know why I am ranting here.

so the last 5 is just riding a bike? I wouldn't call that a challenge.

Carrying your bike 5 miles home with a puncture, now that's a challenge.

Unless you live in somewhere like Sheffield and that last five miles is all uphill on a single gear 20kg bike...
Argos staff are starting to act like goons. I reserved something in the store and when I went to pay for it she said if its not available do you want the money back as a gift card ffs who would do that, f tellytubbies
Useful if the road is flat, but then why would you need an electric bike. I had a near identical one, but with gears, was useless on hills. £249 would be just about the right price to see if a bike was for you, I sold mine a year or so later for £300 (so you won't lose much money when you sell this) and then self built.

In this price bracket it makes little to no difference, you certainly won't be getting a good steel frame. With CEN testing affordable springy steel frames are a thing of the past.

Yeah, aluminium frame will eventually break but it'll be so far into the bike's life it'll have been junked for another reason beforehand.

I'm using my electric bike tonight: 0.8 miles each way! I'm neither fat nor lazy but in this weather I don't want to arrive at the pub dripping like a wet rag!
You must be very unfit then if you'd be sweating from cycling 0.8 miles. Get yourself down to puregym and join the spin classes.
