The ebike industry is changing rapidly with many new ebikes hitting the market every year. We work hard to stay at the forefront of the industry and offer our customers the very best ebikes; sifting through the jungle of ebike options, drive systems, styles, and variances in quality.
It’s very important for us to only sell ebikes that meet our high standards of quality. All ebikes we select to put in our store must meet these standards:
1. The company behind the bike must be solid.
All of our brands have a strong history of quality and integrity, some having been in the bike industry for over 100 years! There are many ebikes that receive good reviews but very little is known about the company behind the bike. In the long-run we believe it’s more important to have a high quality electric bike from a company that will always be there to strongly support their product.
2. All drive systems are NOT equal.
The drive system must have sound engineering, excellent warranty, and thorough quality control, and be backed by a company that will be around in 5, 10, and 20 years from now. This is why we sell ebikes with drive systems from strong companies like Bosch, Yamaha, Brose, and Shimano. There is much more to a high quality drive system than watts, amps, and volts.
3. The build quality of the ebike must be superior.
We understand that one bike frame is not equal to another and that there are significant differences in the quality of brakes, derailleurs, wheels and much more. They may appear the same but there can be very important quality differences. A good paint job can hide a lot of problems. This is why we send our master mechanic, with nearly 3 decades of bike knowledge and expertise, to Interbike to inspect the ebikes and evaluate the true quality of each model. All ebikes in our store must pass his thorough inspection for approval.
4. Design is very important.
We understand that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, that’s why we offer a thorough variety of well-designed ebike styles and colors. It can be challenging to sift through the hundreds of ebikes on display but we are confident that our 2017 line-up of electric bikes is a carefully curated collection of the most beautifully designed ebikes available.
We are very excited for the new products coming in 2017. But don’t wait and miss out on the great deals we have in-store on our existing inventory. These ebikes won’t last long. Come in and ride one home today.
