Ideally one that does test rides?

TIA

Flying Dutchman on Eversholt St (up the side of Euston station). Not exclusively electric but they have lots and you’ll get good service. Good for a test rides because you are close enough to some hills!

Email or call them first - they are open most of the time but they will make sure they can see you if they know you are coming.

Worth phoning or emailing as they are sometimes in doing stuff

I ended up the other side of the city - spoke to a really nice guy in a shop in Fulham who was helpful

Think I'm going to have to go to Cambridge to try the bike a want - but no hills there to practise on!!

What are you after?

Maybe this

But it's the same weight as my existing bike and I find it a bit unmanageable when manoeuvring

But the battery is more central so it might be more stable to wheel around?

But I need to test drive/ride it really

Where's the battery on your current one, on the rear rack?

I've got an electric Bromton now. Nowhere near as comfortable as the Dutch style bikes I've had but brilliant for getting on and off trains!

Yes with the pannier bags

I don't want a folding one really I love my current bike apart form this one issue
