Hi Richard here from eBike Sussex in Shoreham By Sea, we are the South’s First Bosch eBike Experts and the oldest electric bike shop in the country still trading!
I have just completed the 2020 Bosch eBike certification at Bosch’s new Training HQ in Denham near Uxbridge. Lots of new products and developments are now available, this short article will highlight some of them. If you are local to us in Sussex please visit us 7 days a week at our Shoreham by sea, eBike Sussex store open 9am till 1.30pm daily.
I have completed Bosch eBike Training every year since 2013 when we first started selling the Bosch system on our Haibike’s in the UK. The scale and quality of Bosch products, and their philosophy of ‘Invented For Life’ is clear to see when I go on these important training courses. It is an opportunity for us to review the product range delivered by Bosch eBike Systems so far and to explore the newer systems they are introducing or have in the pipeline. The training is carried out in a purpose built facility with the latest Bosch equipment for Diagnosis and Service and Repair of Bosch Electric Bikes.
New products for 2020 include the Smart Phone Hub display, the larger 630WH battery and smaller 400WH intube battery additions. Also the awesome Kiox software updates to turn the display into an immobilizer key. The Kiox display will be an aftermarket upgrade available product, but not until sometime next year.
One of the newest innovations from Bosch eBike systems is the ability to upgrade your bike to a dual battery system. So if you have a frame mounted battery you could buy an additional rack and cabling and secondary battery to be rack-fitted aftermarket. We will reprogram the bike to accept the dual battery capability. Total price is approximately £1,000 including fitting for a 500wh rack-fit battery, cabling, rack, reprogramming and a service on your eBike. This will give you a much longer range! Check out the Range Cockpit calculator on the Bosch eBike Systems website for more details on the increase you can expect. We also have a calculator in store (Bosch Info Centre) where you can input rider weight, bike type, battery size and various riding conditions to work out your expected ranges.
We stock a wide range of Bosch and a Magura replacement parts at our eBike Sussex electric bike shop and service centre in Shoreham. If we don’t have the items you are looking for we can order the parts in, usually next day from the Magura/Bosch distribution centre in the U.K.
Training was a mix of theory and practice. It was a fantastic day and very informative. The Denham Bosch eBike systems HQ is also a training ground for automotive servicing. There is a crossover in some ways as the diagnostics systems are similar on the Bosch electric bikes. This is because the Bosch eBike Motor came from a car power steering motor developed by Bosch.
As Bosch eBike experts we are always up to date with the latest eBike Servicing Training. This means you are in safe hands with us and in the knowledge we will always deliver the latest information and products available.
We are the South’s FIRST Bosch eBike Experts and are proud to demo, sell, service, repair and perform warranty work for Bosch eBike systems.
