Electric bikes have been the fastest growing category of bikes since the early 2000s worldwide, now accounting for a majority of new bike sales in northern Europe and parts of Asia where biking is normal transportation for normal people. Slowly but surely, electric bikes are coming into their own even in proud regular biking cities like Portland in the US. The majority of our electric offerings are cargo and family oriented, as heavy loads and steep hills present the most obvious need for assistance. Increasingly though, we stock electric models suitable for fun and fast personal transportation, in both folding and large-wheel formats. We also offer a variety of retrofit kits that can boost a standard bike you already own, or ones we stock. All the electrics we stock are designed to complement, rather than replace, your pedaling effort. You'll still get all the exercise you want and need, just traveling faster and further with less fatigue.
