e-bikeshop large UK Electric Bike Showroom in Farnham Surrey

“E-bikeshop is proud to announce that we are now open. Our new site is part of the expansion from our two other bike shops and we have been working day & night since the start of the year to get the new sales and distribution centre open in time for the 2014 season. Although a few weeks behind, we are now very excited to unveil our new centre in Farnham on the Surrey & Hampshire borders. This is a good central location for us with people visiting from all over the UK. Every aspect of the centre has been well thought out, from the location, parking, layout, design and the environment. Even our complete internal surround sound system provided by.. Guess who?.. Yep – BOSCH!”

Energy efficient electrical fittings through out

 “We have created all of our spaces to be well insulated, reducing the energy needed to heat & cool them. Most of our electronic equipment is energy saving and timed to be only on when needed. Our packaging is recycled. The lighting throughout is LED or naturally lit where possible so it has minimal energy consumption. Electric bikes are a good step forward for both health and caring for the environment and we felt this should also be incorporated into our eBike store”

“E-bikeshop is set to be the UK’s largest crank drive electric bike specialists. The new site offers a large showroom and all the facilities to accommodate both customer collections and home delivery via direct dispatch from our warehouse. We specialize in crank drive electric bikes from Europe and stock the whole range of Haibike & Raleigh electric bikes”

Full range of eMTB Haibike eBikes

Director Martin Brown;  “We are very excited to have our new premises up and running after months and months of hard work. We have already been taking appointments and everyone who has visited us so far has been very impressed at the large showroom and good selection of parts and accessories available, in fact the main word we have been hearing down here is ‘Wow!’

Wide Range of Parts & Accessories

“This expansion was essential to keep up with the demand of our ever widening customer base. Our excellent customer service must be working and word has now quickly spread as we have more eBikes going out of the door than ever”

Wide range of Trekking / Hybrid Raleigh eBikes

“The demand is definitely growing at a huge rate, and our customer age range has now also widened to include people in their 20′s, with the main attraction for them being the new eMTB’s. These eBikes have a spec that’s second to none, often when we are at shows people have to take a second look at the bikes before they realize that they are actually electric bikes. The design and specification on these European models is tip top, using the latest in mountain bike components combined with the Bosch electric system”

“Our new site means that we can display a large selection of eBikes, from mountain, road, hybrid & trekking bikes. We have a fresh new range of parts and accessories to match, along with all the essential spares & components should they ever be required. We also have new workshop, dispatch & packing bays”

New Picking & Packing Bays for Online Sales

“This ensures we can get website orders out quickly, with the extra space we can now hold more stock than ever with a good selection of European bikes ready to hand as the orders flow in – we found this an essential part of our service”

Lots more space to hold European stock here in the UK in our new warehouse

“Our new workshop also allows us to quickly service and maintain our existing customers’ bikes and as a Bosch UK service centre we have all the Bosch diagnostics systems ready to hand. We can also make sure that all our eBikes have their suspension systems dialed in for optimal performance for you, the rider. Making sure every aspect of the eBike is set up to your specification is extremely important to how the bike handles over mixed terrain. We have all the facilities in place along with our ATG & Bosch trained technicians”

New Workshop Bays specifically for Bosch eBikes

“Along with the new site we have tweaked our website to make it faster, easier to navigate and it now holds more content than ever. The same can be said for our information blog pages which have been optimized with a total overhaul of the front end in the last week, again the content should be easier to see & read and more interactive, with videos, pictures and articles”

Brand New Head Offices

We look forward to presenting the 2014 range of Haibikes at our 2014 electric bike demo day in May 2014.This will be a good opportunity for anyone in the market for a new electric bike to actually try the bikes both on and off road prior to purchase.

Start…

Each time slot will consist of a brief pre-ride talk through of the electric bikes on offer, this will give you a rough idea of how the bikes work and how to operate them. We can also answer any minor questions you may have prior to the ride.

Riding Time…

Haibike Off Road Demo Day SurreThen the best bit, we go for a ride! The terrain is a nice mix of road & off road. There will be different levels of terrain, so that you can see how the bikes perform on all surfaces. We will be riding across the beautiful Surrey Hills with some great scenery on view along the way. There will be nothing too serious within the route, we will have a mix of abilities so therefore don’t want anyone to be out of their comfort zone. There will also be some good descents and most importantly some decent climbs. The ride will be led by a qualified cycle instructor, who is also one of our senior technicians, so he will be able to assist you in using the bike during the ride should you have any queries.

Half way round there will be an opportunity to swap bikes with others so you can try more than one eBike.

Conclusion…

After the ride, we will have a coffee and a de-brief so you can choose which model is suitable for your needs and we can answer any questions you may have. Its also as good opportunity for us to take some feedback from the ride. We will be taking orders on the day and all sales will be delivered the following week. Depending how busy we are some customers may be able to take the bike away with them there and then, so do bring appropriate transport should you wish to do so.
