    Just to chip in, I'm a dealer for both Gazelle and Focus ebikes. I currently have a Gazelle Vento C7 HMB as a demo e-bike, which anyone here is welcome to trial for a few days or so. My last demo (Gazelle Orange C8 HMB) was bought by a certain lady transforming the city centre!

    The Gazelles are super practical and comfy, the Focus' are a bit more sporty. Both have Bosch and Shimano Steps options, as well as other systems (Fazua, Panasonic etc)

    Pop out some time if you're in the market for something.

    Many older cyclists use e-bikes, which provide pedalling assistance from a small electric motor. Rowntree says her range is intended for “people who want to ride under their own steam for as long as possible, and then might switch to an e-bike when they need to”.

    Electron Wheels at Tollcross has closed. Competition in e-bikes is hotting up. Margins are thin. Consumers expect 'fire sales' as a consequence of Brexit and will wait to see what happens (maybe).

    “Consumers expect 'fire sales' as a consequence of Brexit”

    OR ‘buy now higher prices coming’(?)
