e-Bikes

 

E-bikes fit perfectly with our mission.

E-bikes are opening up doors for more people to experience biking as daily transportation and recreation. We couldn't be more excited to facilitate the process of selecting, building, and maintaining your perfect e-bike.

 

Our mechanics are Bosch eBike System certified and have installed, built, and maintained Urban Arrows, Bafang systems, Radwagons, and the bikes and systems below.

Our mechanics are staying abreast of innovations in e-bike technology in order to bring in new brands and models with a focus on quality, affordability, and functionality for our customers.

Interested in what we're bringing in? Looking for something specific? We'd love to talk to you. Email our buyer with all of your e-bike related questions.

Here's what we currently offer in the shop:


Xtracycle Electric Edgerunners, powered by Bosch

 Take your kids to the top of the tallest hill or carry your climbing gear and a friend to your favorite bouldering spot. It’s easy! Turn it on, adjust the support level, and ride like the wind! Flatten hills, carry kids and cargo, and extend your own range. Bosch-powered Xtracycle Edgerunners will take you wherever you want to go.

The Bosch electric bike drive system is the European market leader. The Bosch-powered Xtracycle Edgerunner 10E will take you to new heights.

The 250-watt maintenance-free Bosch Performance Line electric direct-drive motor puts out 63Nm of torque and gives you 50% - 275% more power when you need it most. The mid-drive motor is incredibly efficient and powerful, so you’ll use much less energy under the same conditions than with any other type of motor. And the Bosch lithium ion battery gives you a range of 20-60 miles. It charges on and off your Xtracycle in 3 ½ hours and to 50% in 1 ½ hours.

We have an Electric Edgerunner available for demoing by appointment. Email us to set-up a time to take it for a spin.
