Why us as your Colchester Electric Bike Shop?
Yes we are primarily online, but we offer two things that most brick and mortar stores can't offer and match two things they can.
1. We have the luxury of a huge range of bikes shipped to Colchester postcodes from our HQ. This gives us more room to stock more bikes than a local bike shop in Colchester. We give you more choice
2. Because of our nationwide sales, we are able to be extremely competitive and price match EVERYONE. We will save you money.
And those things that a local shop in Colchester can offer, that we can match too?
1. We have a live web-chat run by cycling fans so we can offer that local shop customer service from the comfort of your own home. How easy is that?
2. You can even try before you buy. So while you're in Colchester and we are online, we can still offer you that option too. See, same as a bike shop in Colchester.
