About Top Gear Electric Bikes
Top Gear Ltd is a privately owned family business, and now specialises purely in electric bikes and the latest Niu Electric road legal scooters. Peter Williams formed the company in 1990 runs it with his partner Amanda Rolleston, General manager James Ward, Chris Bonner and Daniel Mooney.
In addition to bike and scooter sales, we have a cycle repair section where we can repair most electric and non electric bikes and also carry an extensive range of cycle accessories, service parts and clothing.
Peter’s many years experience, customer service and professionalism make him a unique distributor within the electric bike market place and Amanda's vast retail experience make her a valuable asset to the business.
James joined us from a large cycle dealership in Exeter and brings with him a wealth of experience.
Chris for many years ran a well known local specialist cycle shop and Daniel has a great cycling background. They both work in the sales and service sides of the business.
We pride ourselves in that we offer the best selection of electric bikes in the area, and with our friendly approach, our aim is to make sure that we find the best bike to suit your needs, no matter what your budget. You will not be pushed into buying something that is not right for you, but with so many electric bikes in stock, we are sure that we can find the one that suits you best.
After many years of selling various different makes of electric bikes, we now specialise in selling a range of bikes from Kalkhoff, Focus, Haibike, Gepida, Wisper and Babboe, and have many models available for you to view and try at our premises in Penryn.

We also have Niu electric scooters in addition to the electric bikes and the very latest electric compact folding scooters from a brand called Reid. These will appeal to riders who would prefer not to, or are unable to pedal an electric bike as they operate on a simple electric twist and go system. For the Niu range you do however need an appropriate licence and insurance as with the equivalent petrol scooters. The Reid scooters require no licence but are yet to be legalised for UK road use.

We have been involved in the Electric Bike market for many years and have seen the transformation from the old heavy ugly bikes to the superb designs of the current models.
With an array of products on offer including electric step over bikes, step through models, folding electric bikes, and now the Bosch powered Gepidas, Bosch and Impulse powered Kalkhoffs, Yamaha and Bosch powered Haibikes and Promovec powered Batribikes, Top Gear has been the first choice for many e-bike owners.
Based in Penryn, we service the local and South West market, including Falmouth, Truro, St Austell, Bodmin, St Agnes, Perranporth, Padstow, Newquay, Cambourne, Redruth, Helston, Hayle, St Ives, Penzance and beyond.
We are also able to supply bikes to company cycle schemes, reducing and spreading the cost of purchase to employees. Click here for information about the most popular Cycle to Work Schemes.
