    You want to get one with a 3rd generation motor. I think Bosch are top of the line but 3rd gen is the way To go.

    Why not save him a ton of money and buy one of the electric wheel/crank conversions for about £3/400 for his existing bike?

    My LBS has a dog named Bosch. That tells me what I need to know.

    In terms of propulsion, the Bosch crank drive system is reliable and gives a reasonably authentic cycling experience.

    It's fitted to dozens of makes - and types - of bicycle, so it depends what father likes to ride.

    As a general point, Cube/Bosch bikes look good value, starting at under £2,000.

    Hub motor bikes are a bit cheaper, some of the Chinese stuff is truly dreadful, but there are decent makes.

    Worth a look at Wisper - various styles available.

    Still Chinese, but reasonable quality, @welsh dragon has a Wisper which she is pleased with.

    Wisper's owner, David Miall, is a good guy who believes in looking after people, so you will get some genuine customer service which you wouldn't get with a Chinese cheapie off ebay.

    As Pale Rider says, i am very happy with my bike. I have had it for 2 years now and apart from a flat this last week, i havn't had any trouble with the bike itself.
