What's up with all
the e-bike buzz?
It's hard to improve on perfection
The analog bicycle might just be humanity's greatest machine invention - light, efficient, fun and goes everywhere using less than 100 watts of your own leg power. Our parent company, City Bikes, has been matchmaking rider to bike since 1988, so we know a few things about the traditional bike. If you use yours primarily for fitness and love it, we don't recommend even test riding one - you may not want to go back. However, if you want a car alternative, but the physical exertion of traditional cycling is a tough challenge, (or maybe you want to flatten the hills a little) an e-bike might be just the ticket.
ISN'T IT CHEATING?
Okay, it might be cheating a little depending on how you use it. Is it cheating going downhill with a tailwind? That's what an e-bike feels like all the time. E-bikes just amplify your inherent ability, giving you more choices.
No sweat or sweat.
Go fast up hills or get a workout.
Get there in half the time or take your time.
Take the long way home. Go 20 miles out of your way just because you can. Bad knees? Get back into shape safely. Climb a huge hill, explore a beautiful valley. Your choice. All using less energy than a hot shower.
