Its that time of year. We’re clearing out a handful of bikes at huge discounts up to $500 off. This includes models from Stromer, Urban Arrow, GenZe, Pedego, and Easy Motion. These are the best bargains you’ll see all year long here at Ashland Electric Bikes. Come see what’s available!
Here’s how they roll in Amsterdam these days. The Family from Urban Arrow is an incredibly capable people/gear hauler that redefines the cargo bike experience – literally.
Its front loading design allows you to keep a watchful eye on the kiddos as you motor down the road. The new performance series mid drive motor system from Bosch assures that heavy loads or hills won’t keep you from your destination. Hydraulic disc brakes, a NuVinci infinitely variable speed rear hub, full lighting, adjustable handlebar stem, and a huge center stand all add to the bike’s exemplary performance.
The Family is one of the new breed of higher end quality ebikes that are fully intended to serve as a car replacement on a daily basis now and for years to come. If you’re serious about ebiking and you want substantial kid or gear hauling capabilities from a top notch European brand product, come experience the Urban Arrow Family. I promise you’ll be impressed! $5999.
This year Stromer decided to celebrate the success of their ebikes by offering a special build showcasing the features of their different models all in one bike. They’re producing 399 units worldwide with only 130 of them making it to the US. We have one in the shop and its quite the dream machine!
It starts with the basic ST1 Elite frameset, carbon fork, Magura hydraulic disc brakes, and Shimano Deore XT 9 speed drivetrain. The motor is upgraded to the 28 mph high speed pedelec version from the Platinum model. Upgraded saddle, Ergon grips, and stem from the ST2 are added. The city kit, which includes rugged alloy fenders with an integrated rear rack, tail light, and Supernova headlamp add more value to the ride. Custom labeled rims add the final flair.
A nifty metal badge on the top tube identifies this as the limited edition that it is; our current bike is #341 of 399. If you like the power, performance, and build quality of the Stromer ST1 Elite and would like a tricked out version that’s sure to be a collector’s item someday as well as being a unique head turner on a daily basis now, come see the LTD while its here. I don’t expect it to last very long, and it may or may not be the only one of its kind in our region going forward. Only time will tell.
We hear this protestation from time to time from folks who clearly haven’t taken the time to delve more deeply into the world of ebiking. Yes, electric bikes can make your riding substantially easier than you’ve experienced before, but that doesn’t automatically translate into a “cheating” scenario. Bike riding in general is not a regulated activity with set rules and regulations. Organized bicycle racing – yes – but not the rest of the range of riding opportunities.
The notion of not getting any substantive exercise with an ebike is also an incorrect assumption. Ask any ebike owner/rider and you’ll find out that some measure of exercise is always part of the picture. The following article is from a man in Texas who has taken the time to “do the math” and compare his efforts on both electric and standard bikes. As you’ll see he can get as much, if not more, exercise on his ebike than his regular pedal bike. The choice is always his as it is for every ebike owner. Ebjoy the read; I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the conclusions.
In the rush of last season I forgot to add a page for the Pedego Trail Tracker fat tire bikes to the website. We’ve had good success with them and even had an opportunity to test ride a pair at the Oregon Coast in late August. What a ride that was! Yes, fat tire bikes are all they’re cracked up to be, especially with the addition of electric assist. You can maintain power and traction in terrain that a standard mtn. bike could never manage. In fact, that ride was the most fun I’ve had on two wheels since my very first ride on a mtn. bike way back in the early 80s.
The Trail Tracker is equipped with a 600 watt geared motor, 48 volt 10 amp hour lithium battery, Avid BB7 disc brakes, five levels of pedal assist as well as a manual throttle, suspension seatpost, front headlight, and 4″ wide traction tires. The two bikes we have on sale include: front luggage rack, basket and cargo net, padded leatherette hand grips, Portland Design Works fenders and custom made rear tail fender, and a tail light.
The total value of these is accessories is $190, which we are throwing in at no charge to keep the sale price of the complete package at $2999. There are only the two of these Trail Trackers set up in this fashion at this price, so don’t wait too long to call one (or both) of them your own!
