The Bike Place now has electric hire bikes.

The Bike Place at Kielder goes Electric

 

The Bike Place at Kielder is now a Haibike Electric Bike Demo Centre. As we have a resident test fleet of MTB's and Hybrids and traffic free trails on our doorstep, there is no need to wait for a Demo day, you can try the new wave of electrical assistance at any time - just give us a call!!

We have only three bikes left to sell from our 2015 Demo fleet -  an XDuro HardNine (29er hardtail) using the Bosch drive system, and two SDuro HardSeven (27.5" wheel hardtails) with the Yamaha power unit. All have big reductions on the new price (details in the online shop).

 

The first of our 2016 bikes have arrived (SDuro Hardseven 40cm) with more due very soon!! As demand for Haibike across Europe is running ahead of supply, it is essential to get forward orders placed to avoid delivery delays.

These bikes are the future for a lot of folk - why not book in for a demo, you will be surprised!!

 

raleigh-motusNot wanting to go off road, but still fancy a bit of assistance?

We now have a fleet of Raleigh Motus electric hybrid bikes (Gents and Ladies frames) available for general hire!! They both have a 10 speed transmission, hydraulic rim brakes and four power modes. Also equipped with mudguards, rear carrier and sidestand. Both Gents and Ladies models have a 400W Bosch motor and are capable of up to 120 miles on a charge if run on the Eco setting. So, why not try before you buy with one of our hire models (4hrs for £30 or full day is £40). Hire cost refundable if purchase within 3 months. Everyone who has tried these bikes has realised what a game changer the electrical assistance is.

If 2 grand is beyond budget, but electrical assistance still on the agenda, there is the Raleigh Forge available at £1250. This bike uses the TransX front wheel drive system and is a very smooth ride (I've tried one!!). Not as big a range as the Motus, but more than adequate for a lot of uses. We have one of these on the Demo fleet also.

We have new Raleigh Motus in Gents or Step Thru frames and Raleigh Forge in stock for sale. These and any other Raleigh or Haibike can be purchased on 0% finance through our "Click and Collect" facility - just see our website homepage.

 

Our next Demo Day at Kielder Cycle Centre is now booked for April 3rd 2016, so call 01434 250457 for further info.

As a major Haibike Test Centre, in 2016 we will have our own branded gazebo, flags and a test fleet, and will be able to hold smaller demo sessions in other locations, so if you know any business or organisation that would like to try these bikes (and the Raleigh Ebike hybrids), then please get in touch.
