Women and Bikes: More Than Just a Month

Women’s History Month started out as a week, specifically the week of March 7, 1982, and we celebrated “Women’s History Week” every year until 1987 when the country celebrated women’s contributions to the United States of America for the whole month of March. Progress! Now, we devote every month of March to recognizing the achievements women have made throughout American history in a variety of fields. Long before the 1980s, women, and bicycles teamed up to make history. While the first bicycles of the early nineteenth century were considered exclusively for men, women quickly adopted the form of transportation along …

Our Model History

We started concepting, designing, and building our first two model E-Bikes, the Model C and the Model S.

7-Speed vs Direct Drive: What suits me?

Trying to decide between a 7-speed and direct drive e-bike? You can’t go wrong either way, your choice simply depends on your needs. Long hauls with lots of cargo may require a direct drive e-bike because it can go faster despite a lesser range. For a zippier ride with mixed terrain, a 7-speed may be more your vibe despite a lower speed. If you’re already riding a direct drive, no problem, you can still convert your e-bike to a 7-speed; let’s break it down for you.   Direct Drive: The EBC Standard If you’re searching for efficiency while traveling longer …

E-Bike Etiquette

We think you’ll agree that electric bikes are an awesome invention… But with them comes responsibility. E-Bikes are faster, heavier and a lot more powerful than regular bikes, so you need to make sure you understand the added responsibility that comes with riding one. Take it slow – when you’re out on trails passing pedestrians, kids on scooters and regular bikes, slow down and make sure you give everyone lots of space. Passing at a slower speed means you’ll be able to adjust at the last minute to avoid hitting someone who doesn’t know you’re there. Let them know you’re …

News… House Bill Would Provide Electric Bicycle Tax Credit

On February 9, 2021, a bill to provide refundable tax credit of up to $1,500 on the purchase of a new E-Bike was introduced to the House. Cleverly named the E-BIKE (Electric Bicycle Incentive Kickstart for the Environment) Act, this bill was authored by Congressman Jimmy Panetta (D-Calif.) and Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) to support the use of electric bikes as zero-carbon transportation modes. “E-bikes are not just a fad for a select few; they are a legitimate and practical form of transportation that can help reduce our carbon emissions,” Panetta was quoted as saying in a Bicycle Retailer article last week. “My …
