I've a budget of approx £2100 and I'm looking for the best hybrid/mountain electric bike I can get.
I won't be doing any off road stuff just the everyday roads, bridle paths etc.
Any help would be gratefully appreciated as I don't know a good bike from a bad one.
I've seen one which I quite like, Cube Nuride hybrid performance 500 allroad, any help would be appreciated.

    Not an expert, but keep an eye on second hand market.
    I'll explain.
    Quite a few of my friends (all retirees) acquired ebikes over the last couple years; to my knowledge only one of them still uses his - albeit much less than when he first got it.
    Obviously I'm thinking these bikes will soon be going the same way as their home gym equipment ( I know a couple who used their bikes just twice in the whole of last year, their bikes have sat in the garage for months).
    So, no harm in having a look as you might pick up a real rarely used bargain.
    Problem with second hand is the battery, as you said a couple of your friends only used them twice in a year, if the battery wasn't maintained the life on it will reduce and new batteries aren't cheap

    For your usage description I would forgo the suspension as fat tyres will be just as effective without adding weight, cost or the requirement to maintain the forks.

    A bit over your budget but this would catch my attention as reduced and weighs significantly less than the cube you are looking at
    Vitus E-Substance Alloy Gravel eBike (Apex) | Chain Reaction ( but then again I am happy with drop bars

    Orbea also do some nice ebikes flat bars that are closer and look like normal bikes in both their construction and weight. (edited)

    I’ve just gone for the Liv tempt e+ sport, it was £500 off so just under £2k. Looks and rides well, plus I understand the reliability is good.
