This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I got one of these last month as a kind of introduction to electric bikes and have been very impressed.

The one thing against it is it is a heavy beast, and the fold is not one you would want to do every day, but fold it does for storage.

However, it's a very nice ride, and has got me out and about for hours a day just enjoying the ride. The battery pretty much does last the 40 miles assisted from what I can see quite easily. I had not ridden a bike in years but was loving being on this, and flying up hills etc. With assist switched off it's a nice solid and pretty quick bike with Shimano gears, etc.


They had them on an IdealWorld TV hour special last month where it was a special price of £699 for that day, with a normal price of £999, and going by what I have seen this is definitely a £999 bike at least.

Mine came fully boxed and unused. Also available in white, but the grey is cool.

It's a pretty basic bike with a few no-name or low end parts in there but I can't suggest a better electric bike for the money. The best comparison I can come up with is the pendleton somerby electric from halfords. The battery's the same 317Wh capacity as this model but the brakes are name brand and the gears are a bit better but the price is £850.
They are refurbs, so be worth knowing how many charges are left as the battery is a costly consumable. The halfords ones are around £400!

I think the earliest they were released was around March this year, so if you did get one that somebody has used everyday, absolutely hammered and flattened the battery everyday (a bit unlikely, in my opinion) you would still be looking at having about 720-750 charges left.

But I have a feeling these are stock they did not sell, (ie mine came and looked new, box was sealed, etc), or used a few times and returned (maybe the fold and heaviness issues put folk off... Ideal World did make a big thing of returning it no problem etc, and in their presentation they did make the fold appear to be easier than it is in real life (they did not do a full fold), but other than that their info was spot on).

Also a big plus of this for folk not on a bike in a while is the weight it can take, over 19 stone (I am 17.5 and it Handles me easily).

Pleased you're enjoying yours but no way is it worth anything like £999. Usual IdealWorld con.

£384.99 for this very similar one from the same supplier!

Heated for the op enjoying themselves.
Is this the bike where the battery bracket keeps breaking?
