Electric Bicycles: Twelve Reasons for NOT Getting an Electric Bike.
Reason 10: Nobody is Selling Electric Bikes.
This certainly seems to be true in Ireland, where I come from although it's getting a lot more common.
When I wander into a normal bicycle dealer – I usually find just one or two models of electric bikes among the hundreds of models they have there.
I have found that the Electric Bicycle is JUST BEGINNING to come into Main Street. If you want to find one at the moment, you need to look quite hard.
My approach to finding local dealers has been:
- Look up a review site
on the internet (such as www.atob.org.uk)
- Have a look at their top-rated bicycles
- Go to the listed manufacturers website
- See where these manufacturers have local dealers
Another way that I am looking at is – going to my local bicycle dealer – ASK THEM to check out which E Bikes are the best ones, and if they would stock them.
Finding a place that sells and services Electric Bicycles is still very hard (and you may think it is too early days) – at least in countries such as Ireland. At the moment,
Electric Bike owners seem to be “early adapters” and are happy to seek out dealers from afar. But – more e Bikes need to be available locally before most of the people
I know would even think about one. On top of that – most of my friends would want their friends to already have one before they would buy one.
Now, what was the next reason NOT to get a Electric bicycle?
