A Moment’s Reflection

Written by Jerry on . Posted in Uncategorized

I got the chance to take a couple of Wind Runner trail bikes out this past weekend with a friend for some serious off-road testing. The results; the bikes performed beyond my greatest expectations! They turned long uphill climbs into veritable walks in the woods. Their balance and handling through technical terrain and steep downhills was spot on. Needless to say, I was very satisfied with the end result of what has been over four years of development to bring the Wind Runner to the point its at now.

It’s a fine fine feeling to look in the rear view mirror and see my bikes shining in the sun, waiting for their chance to get out and kick up some dirt! With time, grace, and a pinch of good luck all things are possible. Go out and make your wildest dreams a reality!

The Spirit of e-Biking

Adam Vollmer, the founder of Faraday Bikes down in the Bay area speaks to the issues of transportation, sustainability, and the future of humanity on this planet. Bicycles of all types, including and especially ebikes, will play a greater role in our collective unfolding situations. I applaud Adam’s worldview on these topics. I also think he makes a pretty nifty ebike as well!

Special Offer on A2B Metro!

Written by Jerry on . Posted in Uncategorized

white Gen 1 A2B MetroHere’s a super deal on a great ebike! I just got in two Generation 1 – A2B Metros that I can offer at a crazy low price…$2499. When the new batch of Generation 2 Metros show up next Spring they’ll be selling for $3499.

The basics of this bike haven’t changed…powerful motor, in-frame lithium battery, full suspension, disc brakes front and rear. This is one of my favorite high-end production bikes. (I want to keep one for myself!)

So, if you can live without a couple of added features and updates but still get the same solid proven quality of a classic ebike, now is the time to make your move. I don’t expect these to be around for very long.

Fast4Ward Edge Folding Electric Bike

Written by Jerry on . Posted in Uncategorized

I’ve been on the lookout for a quality built, well priced folding ebike for years and I’ve finally found it; the Fast4Ward Edge from Ultra Motors (now Hero Eco).

The Edge sports a 250 watt geared motor and a 24V 8AH lithium battery. Top speed is 15+mph with a range of up to 25 miles. It offers both manual power on demand as well as two levels of pedal assist. Shimano 7 speed rear derailler, Tektro V-brakes, front and rear lights, and an illuminated control display round out the features. At only 40 lbs. its the lightest bike in the shop.

The magic begins when, with a few simple lever flips, the bike folds down into a compact package that will fit into virtually any trunk, RV, boat, airplane, helicopter or whatever else you can imagine. Once you reach your destination in less than a minute you’re ready to ride. The ride is crisp and responsive, and while its not among the most powerful of ebikes, its surprisingly strong for its size and weight. Priced at only $1149 its hard to beat this offering. Come by Ashland Electric Bikes and give the Edge a ride and a fold!

Zumaround Kick Scooters

Check out this fun, new way to get around town quickly and easily. The Zumaround Kick Scooter is a great alternative to a full scale electric bike. At only 36 lbs. its a breeze to move about. The 250 watt geared motor coupled with a 36V 9AH lithium battery will carry you along at a respectable 20 mph clip for up to 20 miles on a charge. It sports 20″ wheels, Tektro V-brakes, a flip-up center stand, mini bell, and a comfortable padded footbed.

I’m pleasantly surprised by the power output of this little rig. With just a small amount of kick assist this scooter will get you across town easily and quickly. The fully upright standing position provides an enjoyable Segway-like ride and should appeal to anyone who struggles with the bent over positioning of a bicycle. A simple thumb throttle operates the motor and there’s no shifting of any kind required. At only $1299 its easy on the pocketbook as well. In short, it doesn’t get any easier than this folks! Come by Ashland Electric Bikes and give the Zumaround Scooter a test kick.
