Interesting Electric Bikes at The Bike Show NEC 2014
We visited the NEC this weekend to see what 2015 has to offer for electric bikes. eBikes are obviously being taken very seriously for 2015 with many manufacturers that were laughing off eBikes a few years back, now trying to gain a share in the fastest growing sector of the cycling market.
There was a lot on offer. Some good, some not so good. Its clear that many have picked up that crank drives are the future with a complete flip on last years show. This year, for the first time, there were less hub driven bikes & more crank drive bikes, predominantly Bosch powered.
Its interesting to see how the UK market differs to the European market when it comes to electric bikes. We visited EuroBike last month to see what electric bikes are doing on a global scale and although its coming a little later, the UK is certainly moving in the same direction.
Also a great opportunity to say a quick thanks to all my followers who came over to say hello at the show. Love that so many people follow the blog, thank you for reading.
As with EuroBike there was too much to picture, but here’s some of the more interesting things we saw:
Electric Bikes have grown year on year and the NEC had a lot more eBikes on offer in the test track this year, so it was much better on a consumer level to test the bikes side by side. Although I can’t help thinking that the eBike track could still be improved next year with a longer track and some all important artificial hills.
See you all next year at THE Cycle Show 2015!
