As is the case with all bikes right now, electric bikes are booming in popularity and therefore in fairly short supply. The chaos brought about in the bike industry by the supply chain disruption has only exacerbated that. However, lucky readers, the Cyclingnews team is well-versed in sourcing the best bike deals. That means we can save you the time endlessly trawling through websites in search of something that meets the holy trinity of 'good', 'affordable', and 'available'.

The problem with cheap electric bikes is that they often promise the same performance benefits as their more premium competition, but then fall short on those hard-to-quantify attributes such as durability, serviceability and longevity. So our roundup of electric bike deals is here to help you get the best of both worlds: high-quality electric bikes at discounted prices. 

Below you'll find all the best e-bike deals in one place, broken down by USA and UK deals. If you're unsure which e-bike is the best for your needs, check out our guide to the best electric bikes, which is filled with information to help you make the best choice. And if you're wondering what size bike you need, then we've got you covered with our full explainer on how to make sense of manufacturers' size and geometry charts, aptly named, 'what size bike do I need?'
