15th October 2021 – We’re pleased to announce that after a nice chat with the lovely people at Revolution Works in Bristol, they are very happy for us to offer you their Revos e-bike conversion kit. It’s priced at £595 and, dependent on a few factors, may be able to convert your existing bike to electric assist. We hope to have a demonstrator bike up and running within a couple of weeks. We’ll put a post on here and our Facebook page when it’s available to try. As the kit fits many different bikes but not all bikes, we’ll assess yours as to it’s suitability for conversion when we bring the demonstrator to you.
When you do get a kit, you can either fit it yourself (it’s reasonably straightforward) or, if you’re not confident in your abilities, we’ll do it for you for a fee of £35…

Why buy an electric bike?
Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycles (to give them their proper title) allow the user to ;
- travel efficiently on local journeys of a few miles.
- see more countryside for the same effort as on an ordinary bike.
- park easily in the town centre when going on small errands.
- continue enjoying the outdoors without worrying about steep hills on favourite routes as time progresses.
- get easy, gentle exercise.
- become fitter and burn more calories.
- lower their carbon footprint.
- HAVE MORE FUN!
They are very cheap to run and may even replace a second car…
Planetary 14 Bikes is the authorised supplier and service agent for WISPER Electric Bikes and, new for 2021, VOLT Electric Bikes covering North Northumberland and the Eastern Scottish Borders.
Wisper is a British company that have been designing and supplying electric bikes since 2005. They are very good value for money, with prices starting around £1,300.
One of their features is that they have the great advantage of not requiring any software updates. Some other brands do require them, sometimes yearly, and are usually chargeable to the customer.
We usually have 2 demonstrators in our possession which we will bring to your home or place of work so that you may have a test ride on the roads familiar to you.
A new addition to our stable for 2021 is VOLT Electric Bikes.
Another splendid range from a British company that has been going for 10 years, VOLT offer both hub motor and centre drive variants at reasonable prices. Covered by a 2 year warranty, they are simple to operate and reliable.
VOLT e-bikes are available through V12 finance via the VOLT website.
If you live in Scotland they may be purchased on a 0% loan via the Energy Savings Trust, for more information, again, go directly to the VOLT website.
If you order any bike directly on the VOLT website, tell them you want it sent to PLANETARY 14 BIKES for assembly, PDI and ‘last mile’ delivery. That way, we get to look after you…
