Can we get that into perspective? How many miles have you done in that time? Did you need to fit any services parts, like chain and sprockets? Did you need to take the pedal arm off to service the main bearing? Do you only ride when it's dry?

I ask these questions because I have a few electric bikes in my garage that have never given me any trouble in 10 years, except for the fact that they block my way to my motorbike that's been at the back for 20 years, and it has also given me no trouble during that time. I was wondering whether my bikes are therefore better than yours from the trouble-making point of view, specially because they didn't even need charging.

Can we ask how much the services cost and how many services they had in that time?

Thanks for that info. Now we have the whole running costs, which work out about 10p per mile for the first year without depreciation. I would expect a bit higher in the second year because the gear train will be starting to wear and there seems to be a peak of problems that come in the 1500 to 2000 mile period.

I hope you let us know how much you get for them so that we can get the whole cost of ownership for a year.

£100 is quite expensive for a service unless they replaced some parts, which they must have done for that price, which is why I asked. Maybe a new chain or sprocket or something. A normal checkover, adjust gears and brakes, and check and tighten spokes would take about an hour, so about £35 to £45 is what I'd expect to pay.
