Was looking for a power assisted bike for easy commute to work when I came across this. This is an easy to use e-bike for people who have a short commute and is also eligible for the tax break under the cycle to work scheme, thus costing you 30-50% less, thus may cost you as little as £200. I haven't tried the 5% discount code so maybe worth checking if you can get an extra 5% off using that, thus costing £380 before tax rebate.

The bike can be used as a standard bikebut more importantly it also features two other modes:
* Assisted mode will kick in the power as you start pedalling and add extra power to each cycle, propelling you faster and with less effort
* Fully powered will take you from stationary to cruising speed at the flick of a wrist with absolutely zero leg movement

Usual price (even though it says £1000) is about £500, so you are getting a £100 discount. It also comes with a full 12 month warranty against any faults or problems that may develop.

Here is a blog post with more details and pics of the bike:

Features
* 17" mountain bike frame (suitable for use from 5ft 2 to approximately 6ft 2)
* Adjustable height seat raises to up to 43" from the ground
* 26" wheels with stainless steel spokes - the benchmark in strength, finish and weight
* New Lithium-ion battery provides huge power (up to 45km range)
* Power output from battery - 24 volts
* Fully sealed battery means safe for use in rainy conditions
* Can be used as a normal bike
* Servo "anti-cling" safety brakes bring bike to a stop as quickly as is possible
* Samson Champion tyres
* Shimano Tourney SIS-Index gears
* Quick release battery
* Quick release front wheel
* 7 speed Shimano 'Tourney' gears with quick change
* Front and rear mud guards
* V-brakes for rapid deceleration
* Bell and reflectors
* Waterbottle
* Legal for road use - no road tax or driving licence required. Legally, no helmet nor insurance required (although we recommend both!).
* Suitable for use from age 14 upwards
* 23 kgs with battery

Forgot to mention that even though some sites state that this bike has an 8AH battery, most people have reported getting a 10AH one instead (e.g. the blog post and other forum posts)

Will this tempt me to cycle to work:thinking:

Bicycles for lazy people
These should be exempt from the cycle to work scheme as they will not encourage you to get fit and use electricity

If they get people out of cars then surely that's a good thing ?

[FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"]Ohh come now! Obese people have a right to cycle/sit on a bike too! They will just get there later than a cyclist! And still be Obese. You're right you know - they should buy a car and burn off calories filling it up! :-D[/SIZE][/FONT]

This is actually a good deal,
1. Considering you have £400 spare to spend
2. you can carry a 23kg bike up and down stairs.
3. Can pay the electric bill every month
4. keep the bike thief's away.

For me it's good but I have none of the above except 2.
Heat still added

The retailer and your employer both have to participate in the ride to work scheme to get the savings - no mention of it on the site so unlikely you could get the discount to bring it down to £200.

I agree but then hopefully most people use the assisted mode rather than sit idle on ass mode :-D
By the way, ]here is a pretty good closeup video of this bike

I can do 2 but don't have any stairs. Would I have to ask the people in the flat above if I could carry it up & down there's? Why is it necessary to do this? Is it part of the service schedule? Now I think about it I reckon I'll just keep walking to work, it seems like less effort.

This might do the trick as where I live there too many damn hills. Can this bike charge the batteries up when going down hill... I guessing not.

Nah, I wish it did :-) You have to charge this manually. Alternately you can go for something like ]this but I couldn't find it in UK and I think it would be a lot more expensive.
