There is nothing more satisfying than when a customer gets their bikes ASAP. Check out this review by Steven Hamill that with the perfect timing, was able to get a couple of bikes faster than he anticipated. “Went to Napa bike shop last Saturday to demo a Pedego. Wife and I tried the Pedego Interceptor and the EBC model S. The S seemed much tighter and quieter. The store mentioned I could buy online or from them. I went home and poured over the website and YT videos doing my usual over the top amount of research. Already looked at

We love hearing from our EBC Owners on how they use their bikes not just for commuting, but also for work. Check out this post from Pamela Murray who uses her bike as her main mode of transportation. “We purchased our S Model step through EBC bike a year ago; as a means of transportation to and from the work place and to get groceries etc… We’ve rode over 5,000 miles now and through the winter months. It’s a work horse and we love our bike.” We are happy to hear that our E-bike has been able to transport Pamela

For those of you who are brave enough to ride in unpredictable winter weather and embark on new journeys with your e-bike, we thought it was important to address the upkeep and maintenance of bikes that are exposed to various elements. One of the benefits of the Electric Bike Company models is that our bikes are very low maintenance as they are built with high quality rust resistant stainless steel parts. With that being said it should be noted that we do not suggest riding your bikes in extremely wet weather as while the water would not damage the paint
At the Electric Bike Company we place priority in building our bikes with the highest quality products and materials, this includes everything from our hand stitched handlebars all the way down to our choice in puncture resistant tires. So to ensure that we live what we preach, we have developed a new tire that will be featured on our Model R (2020) and stacked it against the top 5 leading tire brands in the market, which include Kenda, Maxxis, Schwable, and Continental to see if these tires lived up to their claims of being “puncture resistant”. Watch the video below

You may have heard a term called regenerative braking passed around by various bike brands, Youtube videos, or by other bike owners, but may not have known the context or the implication of the word. This may have led you to ask the question what is regenerative braking? To put it simply regenerative braking is a mechanism that you can attach to either one of your wheels that helps the rider generate electrical currents that run back to the battery with the kinetic energy that is created through the process of braking. Why regenerative braking is viewed so positively is because,

As we watch global temperatures rise around the world and witness the planet’s natural terrain change as a result of global warming, we are beginning to realize the impact that we hold over the earth’s environment. While we may be unable correct the damage that has already occurred by decades of greenhouse emissions, we do have the power to mitigate further degradation by looking at alternative sources for fuel and energy that are more environmentally conscious. Over the course of a decade the popularity of electric powered vehicles and alternate modes of transportation has grown immensely. What holds many people
As a new or prospective electric bike owner, there is a plethora of information that can become overwhelming if you do not have prior experience or knowledge in with this type of product. One question that we get frequently asked here at Electric Bike Company is what class of electric bike do our models belong to and what does each class represent. In order to explain how our electric bikes are able to smoothly transition between the different classes, we must first examine what exactly is involved with each class: Class 1: The rider only uses the Pedal Assist
As the winter months are approaching, the period for bikers to hit the road steadily decreases. In periods in which you feel that you will not be riding your bike as frequently, it is important that you care and store your battery properly during these seasons. To ensure that you maintain optimal battery performance and consistency when riding, there are several steps that will help maintain the health of your battery: #1. Fully Charge Your Battery Before you package and store your battery away it is vitally important that you have your battery fully charged. This is meant to check
As the season begins to change, we here at EBC thought it was important to highlight some important tips on how to maintain your bike and your safety when riding in wet climates. #1 Check your surroundings and make sure to ride slowly During wet seasons drivers become more tense and road conditions begin to deteriorate. Because of these two reasons, it is important for the rider to be highly aware of their surroundings. Similar to driving, when riding in bad weather it is important to reduce your speed by 1/3rd of the stated speed limit, in order to help
Time and time again, countless studies have shown that being active has multiple health benefits such as improving heart health, our emotional disposition, and increasing our life expectancy. Yet, despite having all these wonderful rewards, working out is one of the hardest decisions that a person will make in their daily lives. The issue is not so much the act of working out itself, but developing the motivation to exercise consistently. Finding the right workout that matches your exercise and lifestyle habits is the key to developing proper motivation and establishing a routine. For those of you who may be
Manufactured in California and shipped fully assembled, the Electric Bike Company Model C Classic is an affordable, stylish cruiser with some really great features.
Here are five tips to help you get back into riding a bike (ebikes). Tip No. 1: Decide to Ride You’re online reading an article about how to get back into biking, so odds are good you are “thinking about” riding again. Now stop thinking and decide. “Decision is the ultimate power,” according to motivational expert Tony Robbins. “Making a decision puts you in control.” Once you have committed to biking for fun, fitness, and friendship, nothing will stop you. • Fun. Bicycling is fun. Riding an e-bike even more so. • Fitness. Riding an e-bike could combat type-2 diabetes,
Yes we did 5 years of R&D – we found… • Mechanical gears tend to fail after a few years … They need constant maintenance. Maintenance costs are higher on mechanical gears than internal pedal assist options, however our bikes are equipped to accept a 7 speed mechanical gearing system. If you find that you still want a 7 speed, your local bike shop can add that. However, once you ride our bikes and feel the power, you may not find that you need mechanical gears. 99.9% of our customers do not have them. • Chain comes off easily •
Thumb throttles are the least obtrusive of the three types of ebike throttles. One thing we at the Electric Bike Company love about the thumb throttle is that it never interferes with brake levers. Thumb throttles allow the greatest freedom of handlebar accessories, like our bell and rear view mirrors, since they take up so little room. We believe the main advantage of thumb throttles is the increase in safety. The thumb throttle does a better job of isolating your arm movements, then a twist throttle. We prefer thumb throttles over twist throttles especially when lifting your bike over curbs
In an effort to encourage bicycle and electric bike commuting in the United States, Representatives from Oregon, Florida, and Massachusetts introduced a new, bipartisan bill that would restore and expand tax incentives for some riders, allowing them to receive employer-paid transportation benefits of as much as $53 per month tax-free. “The bicycle is the most efficient form of urban transportation ever devised. Cycling reduces carbon emissions, provides enormous physical and mental health benefits, and is one of the most cost-effective modes of transportation available,” said Representative Earl Blumenauer, an Oregon Democrat, as he introduced the proposed legislation into Congress on
Why Electric Bike Company chose the Cruiser Style Sean Lupton-Smith, the owner of Electric Bike Company wanted to create an American Made product and felt that the classic cruiser style embodied the American lifestyle.

If Space is an Issue…don’t fold your beautiful bike – simply get our Electric Bike Company RADICAL Scooter.
You journey, your way The Electric Bike Company Radical e-scooter is designed with its unique folding system, while maintaining its speed 20mph and range of 20mi. Folding e-bikes can still be difficult to transport and can be double the cost of an e-scooter.

Parking in city centers can be difficult and expensive and people are looking to alternative ways to fill that gap. Our new Electric Bike Company Radical e-scooters are

Tip #1: Keep an eye out for dry grass while riding trails during the dryer summer months! Bull thorns, also referred to as Puncture Vines and Devil’s Thorns, come out to play when it gets warmer. Unfortunately, these pesky thorns can pop your standard e-bike tires and keep you from enjoying your ride. If you’re riding in an urban area, you may encounter some broken glass or pieces of scrap metal on the street. These heavy-duty, sharper materials can do some serious damage to your e-bike tires. While no tire is completely invincible, our Electric Bike Company Cruisers come
As we get older, our motivation to work out and stay active often begins to fade. Joint problems or a lack of stamina inhibit us from getting out and enjoying proper exercise. However, the older we get, the more we actually need to keep our bodies moving, in order to support a full and healthy lifestyle. With the rise in technology and electric vehicles increasing in popularity, Electric Bike Company bikes are ahead of the curve when it comes to helping you stay active throughout your entire life.

We get many questions about what distinguishes our electric bikes from other traditional bikes. As the name suggests, our electric bikes stand out mainly in the battery power. Our electric bikes stand out in many other ways, as well. One main difference is our bikes do not have traditional gearshifts. Here are 7 reasons why you do not need a 7 speed Electric bike: 7 speed mechanical gears are notoriously unreliable They are very costly to maintain The chain has a high likelihood of coming off during each ride Cable actuated brakes erode, stretch and rust over time, leading to endless tweaking and constant adjustments Our
