So what are the UK’s Best Electric Bikes?

Thinking of going electric? You’ve come to the right place. The Bike Coop was one of the first UK retailers to supply e-bikes and that means we’ve racked up years of experience and expertise.
E-bikes can be a big investment, so it’s important to be confident in your purchase. There are now nearly as many e-bike types are there are bikes: hybrid, folding, mountain, cargo and even road. This handy guide gives you our ten best e-bikes, although we should say that all our e-bikes have been carefully selected, and what we would consider a ‘great buy’.

Our other guides – Should I buy an Electric Bike and Guide to electric bikes have more information on each type.
