Electric Bikes?

What is happening to the electric bike market? A short while ago when visiting bike shops they seemed to have an electric bike or two. Now they have none. Are they a passing fad or has this market becoming more specialised and is supplied by its own shops?

There are plenty online. Giant, kalkhoff are just 2. There are lots more.

There are some specialist shops appearing and I've noticed them in my LBS too. I usually seen one or two on any ride in Bristol.

Thanks KP99. It does appears that you need to go an specialised shop. The offer they have on in The London Electric Bike Company does seem rather good.
Those shops are a stone's throw from Sigma if you also want to look at non electric bikes and much (higher end) shiny stuff (and get a free coffee ;) )

No. I've got better uses for my £700 than sitting in their bank account. However one has to realise that these projects often take way longer than say originally say. I backed the Pebble Watch. That took ages so you could say that I know what I was letting myself in for.
