“Make Exercise a Breeze”
The words my partner now uses to explain the benefits and enjoyment of these terrific inventions. It’s been over two years since we purchased our first electric bikes from Poweredbicycles, which were our first electric bikes.
The decision to buy from Powerbicycles was taken after a fair bit of research, traveling around and testing of the electric bikes available at the time. We didn’t have to use any real scientific evaluation to make the decision it was almost obvious to us when we had met Hamant and the team at their slightly confusing but thoroughly endearing, well stocked and welcoming shop in Long Eaton.
Hamant’s passion, knowledge and desire for his product was infectious, it left all the other retailers we had visited looking dull, uninviting and uninteresting. We had planned to spend an hour or so at the shop that first day, having arrived at 10:00am, traveling from North Yorkshire. We left seven hours later at 5:00pm!
Throughout the time, we never once felt pressured that we had to make a purchase, we were just given a step-by-step understanding of the technologies used in the production of the bikes, the history of the business and the choices available us.
We made endless, but vital trips to the ‘testing ground’, across the road with different styles of bicycles, not realising that we were being assessed by Hamant as to what we were really after, and what would be best for us.
Indeed, my partner, Sarah, was initially more concerned with the look of the bike. Her aspiration was that it had some real street cred, e.g a mountain bike look alike. All the time Hamant was getting to know her, and knew exactly what bike was best for her. How right he was, Sarah is so passionate about her bike, she rides most days and calls it “Lady Penelopy”. She wouldn’t change it for anything.
I didn’t really know what I wanted, but once I’d ridden the Mantra City, I was smitten, and I remain smitten to this day. It’s a wonderful bike, both on road and even some bridleways etc. We always take the bikes with us on our motorhome holidays, which we thoroughly enjoy. Everything that we told by Hamant about the bikes, their capabilities has proven to be totally correct.
After many years of heavy use, I feel we are in a worthy position to comment on this. I have been down to see Hamant several times over the past few years, and have always been made to feel very welcome. I have no concerns about recommending Poweredbicycles to anyone. My brother and his wife have recently also bought bikes from them, they too are totally happy with their bikes.
