About The eBike Trading Team

eBike Trading was started by bike enthusiasts Father and Son team Andrew and David. Both have been keen cyclists all their lives and were early adopters of the electric bike technology. They were quick to realise that buying, selling and maintaining ebikes was going to be uncharted territory for most owners.

Andrew is a qualified mechanical engineer and has worked on everything from bicycles, car engines and boilers to complex engineering projects and air management systems. What he doesn’t know about bikes and motors isn’t worth knowing.

A Natural Development

Andrew and David watched with interest as the popularity and efficiency of electric bikes developed. More recently Andrew decided to take up renovating pedal bikes in his ‘early’ retirement, running  a Re-Cycle project in Devon, which  donated over 50 bikes to charities.

The challenge of servicing and repairing ebikes made him realise just how new and complex the technology was. Sourcing reliable parts and servicing was sometimes a challenge. Foreign imports and scams were rife, the UK laws were confusing.  So the buying and selling of second hand electric bikes was a bit of a minefield – not least because there were few platforms specifically for that market. The ones that do exist cost a fair bit in upfront fees or commission – or both!

Creating an Safe and Friendly eBike Community

So that has led to the development of this platform – which strives to be a comprehensive and trustworthy FREE place to sell, buy or just learn about ebikes and associated parts and equipment.

  • It is essentially a membership based community of UK ebike enthusiasts, for exchange of reviews and news – along with a social forum for asking advice and discussing routes, cycle friendly venues and accommodation – even meet ups and demo/trial days around the country, where people can see and try pedal assisted bikes for themselves.
  • Andrew and David's ethos is to keep use of the site and the ability to buy and sell bikes as low cost and safe as possible. Classified advertising is free to private individuals in the UK, to sell or buy. The UK membership basis is aimed at creating a safe environment where people can trade and converse with confidence.
