Many people may wonder – what exactly is an electric bike? It’s all begins with the most simplest of standard bicycles. By adding a motor, a batter and a controller that monitors the power, you’ve just come across an electric bike. Having a turbo-charged classic bike is great when you need that extra little push across town or uphill. While it’s certainly not made to do it all for you, it’s a great alternative for a commuter or lifestyle biker.
One of our favorite brands of electric bikes is Ecobike. Made and sold all over Europe and North America, Ecobike brings together style and functionality. The Vatavio and Elegance are two styles of ecobikes that we carry.
The Elegance is the classic electric bike. Known for its usability and strong design, the Elegance electric bike is the ideal bike for a rider who prioritizes comfort and ease of use.
The Vatavio is a folding electric bike. It combines the assurance of an electric bike with the functionality of a folding bike. Perfect for the admirable commuter, the Vatavio folds down in under 10 seconds and comes complete with a carrying bag. For those that have to deal with fighting for a place to put your bike on the Caltrain or BART, the Vatavio is perfect for you. You’ll get the luxury of riding an electric bike but still be able to fold it up when you need to.
No matter the style of electric bike you may choose, the Ecobike is a great brand that delivers all that it says it will. One of our favorites, you’ve got to come in and see one for yourself.
