We took along a selection of electric bikes for people to see & try. As always Fran from Horse Events looked after us brilliantly and as you can see from the photos, the weather wasn’t half bad!

As promised in one of our latest posts we’ve got some more product announcements for you!
We have recently taken on Storck RADDAR bikes. Since 1995 Storck has been developing innovative ground breaking and timeless products which have won numerous tests and design awards. Storck have now enter the electric bike market with the Multitask and Multiroad Carbon which are based on Storck’s popular road bikes. Storck’s new series of electric bikes is exceptional in terms of both build quality and design.
Here at E-Motion we don’t mess around when it comes down to quality and reliability of electric bikes we sell. Thats one of the reasons we are now stocking Flyer. Flyer’s line up features a wide selection of crossbar, step through and folding ebikes with multiple colour options on selected models. Flyer distinguishes itself by the high-quality, hard-wearing components from well-known brands & all bikes come with a five year guarantee.
Later this year (or possibly early 2012) we are expecting to recieve one of the first batches of Wisper’s DaaHub retro fit ebike kit. Just like the kits from Bionx and other manufacturers this simple kit will allow you to convert your existing bike into an electric bike. The DaaHub kit provides you with a pedal assist mode as well as throttle. We had chance to test the DaaHub out for the first time at EuroBike this year on a BMX and full suspension mountain bike and we’re very pleased with its performance on both bikes. You can read more about our first experience with the DaaHub here.
We’re very pleased to reveal that on Saturday 20th August 2011 we’ll be opening the doors on our new retail shop for the very first time! We welcome you to join us and you’ll get to see the full range of 2011/12 Wisper and Raleigh ebikes, together with the new Storck RADDAR from Germany and the Swiss Flyer as it’s name suggests from Switzerland.
We’ll also have a range of ebikes on display from Powabyke, iZip, Juicy Bike and GoCycle. There will be opportunities to book test rides and ask any burning questions you have about ebikes to the team and also enter a competition to win £100 worth of fab cycle gear!

What a month we’ve had since our last shop blog post! First off we have now officially moved to 373 Cricklade Road, Swindon after a couple of months running between Swindon and Blunsdon. The shop is coming along now, the floors have been tiled, walls plastered and painted and we’re moving on to giving the outside of a building a new coat of paint. We’ve been using a cherry picker to work on the outside of the building (as and when the rain gives us a chance to do so) and hope to have some branding on the building very soon.
As well as working hard on the new shop we’ve been out and about at some events such as the Bicycle Carnival in Lydiard Park and Green Transport Event in Bristol. Our bikes went down a storm at the events and we couldn’t be happier with the reception we got!
This month you’ll be able to visit us at the following events and try out a selection of bikes from Wisper, GoCycle, iZip, Juicy Bikes and more;
Summer Fete at St Phillips Church, Upper Stratton
on Saturday 16th July 2011 1pm -4pm
Penhill Summer Fete
on Saturday 30th July 2011 11am-1pm

Mark and the team are pushing things forward at the shop and we’re hoping to open the shop later this month. Be sure to check your inboxes and our blog for a launch date and more details on the days events.
On Saturday 2nd July 2011, we attended Swindon’s Bicycle Carnival at Lydiard Park. The Bicycle Carnival is an event arranged by CTC and Swindon Borough Council aimed at getting people out on their bikes, dressing up and having fun! The Swindon Advertiser has labelled the event as ‘a huge success’!
Our selection of demo bikes on the day included the GoCycle, Wisper 905se Sport, Raleigh Leeds and more from iZip, Powabyke and Juicy Bikes. We got a great response from everyone on the day especially all our first time riders and one gentleman even said he found the ride ‘as addictive as alcohol’, we just hope he doesn’t mix the two! It was fantastic to see both younger and older people enjoying our electric bikes, especially when we had entire families taking the bikes for a spin!
Thanks to everyone that came out on Saturday (including those who helped out through out the day)!

Another week has past and we’ve been extremely busy trying to push everything forward inside our new shop. We’ve finally finished the wiring so now we’re able to start on the cosmetics such as the new ceilings, plastering, tiling the floor and decorating!
We just hope this beautiful sunny weather (we’ve been missing out on) the UK has been having will show up for us on our launch day in a few weeks time!
Keith just back from his jungle trek!
Above shows the RSJ and steel posts which enabled us to take out a load bearing wall and open up the shop.
A new consumer unit! Yes, we have light! A work of art no?
Dangerous job breathing the dusty, dirty air in here at the moment!
I wonder what this is going to be, any guesses?
Alarm cables. Fancy untangling them?
Loops for 24v lighting. It’s like the ‘hanging garden of wires’ in the shop!
