    Some low life has nicked my Volt electric bike ( is quite heavy). Which is the best one to replace it with. Would like largest wheels and more of a man's looking one! Should I get one with a Bosch or similar.

    Bosch without question.....Buy on German ebay and save a packet.

    Hope it was insured! Spend at least 10% on decent security:(

    Haibike with the Bosch motor. Also same motor on Cube bikes but you will pay around £1500 to £2000. Cheap deals on some old 2015 models but not many left

    Bosch power has got to be the best option. Need to test ride quite a few different models to find what suits you then decide on price versus quality how much you are prepared to spend. Then as Eddie says buy from Germany, British prices like Motorhomes stupidly high. We brought direct from a German dealer, delivered in 3 days and saved £500 a bike.
