Hi all went into local halfords to peruse latest ebikes about 5 weeks ago , And went in again 12 sept and the bikes seem to be much dearer than my last visit.

there was an eblike at £400 before. With a very small rear rack battery ,this now seems to be £600, the folding ebikes seem much dearer too .

Any other members noticed an increase?

its not just ebikes it is all bikes that have gone up and parts and tools i have never seen so many new bikes in the last 6 months.

if you are looking to buy then id not wait as its not going to get any cheaper esp ebikes.

Supply and demand pushes prices up when there is a bike production shortage.
A sure way to improve profit & turnover.

About a year to 2 years ago the Carrera Crosscity was £650 and I've watched that bike creep up in price. At the current time on Halfords there are 2 listings for it one at £899 and one at £999 so assume £999 will be the only price soon. Still great value though admittedly compared to most other suppliers of similar bikes.
