I've been looking for a good deal on an electric bike & found this.
£520 at amazon & was £499 at play.com when they had it in stock.
Uses the older SLA batteries which aren't as good as newer technology but cheaper to replace.
The Milan 2 electric bike has a frame designed for step through, suitable for both sexes. This electric bike is easy to handle and has attractive mudguards and rear racks. The special features of this triple mode operated model make it a unique among all electric bikes which are:

Maximum speed of 15 miles per hour with the help of motor or assisted by pedals. It can also run like a bicycle without the aid of motor.
This Milan 2 bicycle is operated by a Japanese Shimano built 6 gear mechanisms. It has an independent twist grip throttle and 26” wheels. This electric bike is fitted with a 200W brushless motor with V shaped front and rear brakes.
The motor of this Milan 2 electric bike is operated by a lead acid battery of 36V equaling to 288 Watt hours. The battery weight is 2.6 Kg and with every recharge the bike can run from 15 to 20 miles. It takes 6 to 8 hours to be fully charged and has a life of 300 recharge cycles.
It is 183 cm in length and weighs 31 Kg including the battery.
Height of the handlebar is 107 cm to 108 cm and the saddle height is 86 cm to 102 cm.
Accessories of this Milan 2 bicycle include rear rack, kick stand and a battery charger.

The Milan 2 electric bike is comparatively more durable and will give you the perfect enjoyment of riding on a electric bike.

The Tesco one seems a much better bike- lithium battery, longer range, lighter, and folds to go in the car.
You would be crazy to get this. Replacement batteries are a crazy price and this only has 300 charge cycles.

Not at all. anyone with a bit of knowhow can take these battery packs apart, & with a bit of basic soldering the batteries inside can be replaced with much longer lasting ones for under £40. It's the newer types that are expensive to replace.

Can they be replaced that easily?
Before investing in in electric bike I would recommend checking out:

I notived right off.

Decided that the Tesco Hopper is a good enough deal, with £10 off on the £40 buy voucher, £20 worth of doubled up clubcard vouchers, 3.03% TopCashback (ends today) and 1% kickback on my credit card. But of course the Tesco website is flaking out today, and I can't get my vouchers doubled- can't even get logged on half the time.

Later- finally managed to get my vouchers doubled and order the bike, but it wouldn't let me use the £10 off a £40 buy voucher. I think it is what they call an outside seller. But I am in time for the 3.03% TCB and got the doubled clubcard vouchers through. After all that, the estimated delivery is the 16th of JULY.

Even later- the TCB tracked today- £9.19. And yes, the 3.03% cashback has now ended, to be replaced by 5.05% (ending in six days).

Can you tell me where to get replacement batteries from please? I have the Powacycle Salisbury model and yes the original batteries are very expensive.
Thanks.
