Electric bikes are booming in popularity, and as with any new technology, there are options at a multitude of price points that cater to riders' various budgets. The problem with this is that cheap electric bikes often promise the same performance benefits of their more premium competition and seem like a no brainer. However, where they regularly fall short is durability, serviceability and ultimately, the number of miles they will last before a problem renders it little more than an ornament. 

The best electric bikes are designed and built by reputable bike brands that understand the stresses and strains that a bicycle will undertake and the result is an electric bike that will stand the test of time. While the initial expenditure might be hard to justify, better quality electric bikes will always offer greater value for money on a money-per-mile basis.  

Finding electric bike deals are a great way to get the best of both worlds; saving money while ensuring you buy a quality product, and luckily, finding an electric bike deal is becoming more and more possible. The popularity and availability of e-bikes have been on an upward trend for a number of years now, and as product cycles move from one year to the next, the availability of 'old' models increases, often resulting in great deals and better quality cheap electric bikes.
