At Sprockets Cycles we believe in Electric bikes. We also believe that if you are in the conversation about electric bikes, you can most likely refine your view of them by actually having a go on one. That's why we have Scotland's biggest selection of on-site demonstration models for you to try before you buy or simply to experience for your own curiosity.
Electric bikes (or e-bikes) are not to be pigeon-holed. At the most extreme, you can spend as much as you like on one and it will literally take you over the hills and far away in superb comfort and with 100% reliability. We know this because we've done it! Have a look at our short video feature on the Haibike FullFatSix electric Fat-Bike (demo bike available) We took it up and down Lanarkshire's 700m Tinto Hill in very difficult conditions and it coped without a single complaint.
On the other end of the scale we have the recreational rider in mind. From a very modest budget, we can supply you with an e-bike that uses the latest technology from the Shimano Steps system to deliver a very uncomplicated experience that will simply assist the effort you put into the pedals by boosting you to an average speed of up to around 15mph.
Here's a quick look at the e-bike brands we offer.
