Boost Bike Hub is the long established independent bike shop in Brockenhurst, family owned and full of friendly staff, dedicated to helping you get more out of your cycling whether you are looking for carbon-performance, electric bike fun or something functional for day-to-day riding.
All the buzz these days of course is about the "boost" of e-biking. How you can combine exercise with saving on fuel and helping the environment whilst travelling further on your leisure rides and seeing more of the outdoors - or even just getting the jobs done! Like all those errands which involve journeys which were a bit too far to go on a traditional bike.
Owner Ross Kempson and his team at Boost Bike Hub got into e-bikes long before they became the mode of everyday leisure travel and transport so already have 20 years experience selling them. There's nobody better placed locally to explain the pros and cons of the different e-bike brands and give you a chance to try them out before you buy.
The 'island shop' in Brockenhurst has been a family owned bike shop since 1994. New Forest Cycle Experience began life as predominantly a bike rental centre, which moved to the train station in 1998 when the hire fleet got a bit too big and now trades under the "original" name of Cyclexperience Bicycle Hire
Meanwhile the 'island shop' continued as a retail store and was rebranded as Boost to try and resolve the confusion that 2 stores called Cyclexperience in one village seemed to be causing.
The main e-bike brands stocked by Boost are Trek, Focus and Giant: these are the brands which Ross and his team particularly rate and enjoy selling so they can make sure you get the best of your cycling in the New Forest.
As they say though “If we don’t sell it they don’t make it!” - they can order all other brands (and accessories) - normally within 48 hours.
There's a test bike available which has Boost's guiding app too - all ready for you to try a foray out into the Forest!
There's also a trade-in service for your old bike against a new e-bike
Local deliveries are made by our very own electric van and there's a courtesy first e-bike service included when you buy a new e-bike. Also - all makes of e-bike and non electric bike can be serviced.
So we really do have it all covered!
Call or call in and have a chat. Ross, Paul and the team willl be delighted to talk about how to get the most out of e-biking, or indeed speed or leisure biking on a non electric bike!
