E-Bike manufacturer Mycle has announced it will offer a £100 discount to anyone affected by the ongoing rail strikes. The discount brings the cost of the brand’s most affordable bikes, the Compact and the Classic, down to £899 – not a lot at all in the world of electric bikes.
We had a look at Mycle’s e-cargo bike, the Mycle Cargo, last month and were impressed with it. We felt it offered exceptional value and another £100 off the price certainly won’t do any harm in that regard.
We haven’t actually tested Mycle’s cheaper bikes, the Compact and the Classic, yet (we’re hoping to review the former soon), but on the face of it they’re cut from similar cloth.
The Compact is a 17.5kg folder with a 230Wh battery concealed within the seatpost. The Classic is a practical urban step-through with a rear hub motor and 345Wh battery.
Both are priced at £999 ordinarily, and as we say in our guide to the best e-bikes for under £1,000, there aren’t an incredible number of options in that price bracket.
They’ve a handful of other options too: the Compact Plus, the Commander and the Climber. (You can have any bike you like, as long as it begins with C.)
If you’d like to take advantage of the voucher scheme, you’ll need to email email@example.com with a picture or screenshot of any rail ticket from the month of June. Mycle’s customer service team will then send back a discount code.
The move comes after Halfords began offering free e-bike loans to beat the rail strikes. Availability could potentially prove an issue with that one though. You can find out more about the Halfords offer here.
