    We've supplied one Nihola e-trike via it so far. From our point of view finance costs us but with the devaluation of the pound we have to have as many ways as possible to help get people on bikes (+ pay the rent!).

    The car industry is a total finance industry of course and e-cars are subsidised as part of government policy. The GCI title / mission statement ticks usual 'green' boxes - 'The Green Commute Initiative is a Not for Profit Social Enterprise'.

    Bikes like the Urban Arrow and Nihola e-Cargo could be affordable with this finance scheme.

    They will also finance old style 'manual bikes' of course!

    Interesting - I wondered if you had come across this, LB. I spotted it fairly randomly about a week ago... How do you feel it compares to C2W in terms of organisation etc?

    They are new kids on the block so early days.
    As far as a dealer is concerned they are just someone else to share margin with but they do allow big ticket items - hence e-bike focus although they say they'll do others.
    CS has a box for you (just arrived - not quite opened yet!) Pm me.
