    Anyone with a good eye for an electric bike?

    Reasonable price, average and full size? I'd go for one from Decathlon but I can't stand those weird Holland style handles. Shame there aren't more electric bike deals on here as they have so much potential to get people out of their cars.

    Many thanks

    Look at the Carrera at Halfords halfords.com/cyc…ike . £1100 now ,bought one last year when they were £999 and when they had their 20% off deal (think I paid about £800). If you are a member of British cycling you can get 10% off (membership is about £24). As you can see its a proper bike (the Li battery being about the size of a water bottle ) . Cannot recommend too highly . Check the many positive reviews (mine is from August last year )

    There's choice
    Legal = pedal assist restricted to 15mph approx
    Illegal = as legal but with addition of throttle and top speed near 30mph (but if used with common sense unlikely to be caught/prosecuted)
    I have a secondhand Raleigh Velo I got because of ill health but it didn't help me even though I was a keen cyclist (if you are local to Nottingham pm me and I can look at listing (if required) on FST

    Depends on what you want to gain from electric bike?

    Handlebars can be changed

    I get that its to differentiate between a motorized vehicle and a pedal cycle, but never realised that it was only 15mph, which makes it seem a bit harsh. Most cyclists can manage 15mph on a bike and at a sprint over 30mph.
    Plus you can't be done for speeding on a bike

    Just been having a look. voltbikes.co.uk/pul…php
    Think rogparki's suggestion looks a good bet. Maybe get a sale on it before summer.

    allseasonsbikes.com - if you ring ask for Leon and say Clare Sandiford recommended you. Great business and brilliant bikes
