    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.

    Friend of mine is looking. There seems to be a huge amount of choice he says.

    Yep. TBH there are too many perhaps. Some good. Some not so good.

    Yes - too much choice isn't very helpful.

    Apparently gangs in the East End of London are targeting riders of electric bikes and stealing them......there's obviously a blackmarket in them.

    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.

    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.

    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 ;) )

    Have you got it yet? The only person I know who ordered it gave up in disgust after months of nothing and no replies to emails.
