@janusz0 A battery is a very different to universal consumables like tyres.  It is specific to the bike and often quite bespoke, only the manufactuer of that bike can provide a replacement unless somebody takes the time to custom make a mass market replacement. 

If the bike ran out AA cells and Raliegh did not sell them I would not care, it's an universal standard.

You can't just pop to the LBS and get a replacement battery for a ebike.

I have 2.5 year old Raleigh Grand Centros with belt and hub gears and I've been quite happy with it. It's a shame that belt isn't an option any more - it has required zero maintenence. Due covid I didn't cycle as much as I thought, only 2000 miles so far.

@whtefram: I don't expect thst Raleigh offer replacement tyres or pedals either. Wouldn't you get spares from your LBS or online?

Raleigh don't offer battery replacements, Louis Rossman did a youtube video about it.

Pretty poor for a bike manufacturer to not offer replacement or repair.
