"Wow, what an awesome first ride this morning!!! Truly phenomenal. This changes everything."
E-Bike's are amazing!! Crazy fun to ride!!!
I love my e-bike! I can ride anywhere I want and not worry about keeping up. It's like I'm bionic! The more I ride, the less assist level I need. Bring on those long, steep hills! Now I can pedal away and actually get somewhere!
My wife loves her "rocket bike" (e-bike conversion of her mountain bike. The only trouble now is that I have a hard time keeping up with her even when she is pulling our 65 lb dog in a trailer.
We have not only a tandem bike, but it's a recumbent tandem bike! Recumbent plus tandem equals "lots of weight" to pedal up those Colorado hills!
John at eBike Company outfitted our Nazca Quetzal Tandem with a 1000 watt motor that not only helps us keep up with the crowd pulling those hills but also assists us to never fall behind on those hills,in the flats or ANYWERE else now!!
Thanks eBike Company for turning our tandem into a crazy, fun, fast ride now!!!
I've been friends with John for a while. When he told me that he built an electric bicycle, and then let me try it, I knew I had to be one of his first customers.
I've had my e-bike for over a year now, and have been very happy with the performance and reliability. John built me a custom 17.4Ah battery pack for my steel frame 29er, and even let me help do some of the welding. We installed the 750 watt motor kit at his e-bike shop in a couple of evenings (which was surprisingly easy), and the final product feels very professionally done. (Even though I helped) So besides looking great, the bike is super powerful and fun to ride.
Typically I can get 50 miles before I like to charge it, and 20-30 if I ride it hard (like 25mph in traffic). Also, I have the 6 Amp charger and it charges the bike in a couple of hours. (Your mileage may vary) My E-bike has made my daily commute a joy, and has taken me on longer rides than I would have ever been able to do on my own.
I would highly recommend the E-Bike Company. John is a great guy, and talented with bikes and electronics. Get an E-bike from him, or get his help converting your current bike.
We live in a very hilly area so I explored purchasing an e-bike. I narrowed it down to about three national bike companies and then it dawned on me I have my own great bikes hanging from the top of the garage. After some research I found this great company. My world has changed and now my wife has a bike as well. Customizing your bike and working with your budget was a fantastic experience and both bikes glide up the hills. I highly recommend The E-Bike Co in Colorado Springs.
I bought a new cruiser bike in June (Electra Townie) on the advice of my doctor. I have a neck injury that won't allow me to ride on a mountain bike due to the position you ride in. I had John add the motor so I could go further in my rides. WOW ! What a difference it made and allows me to ride to lots of new places. I am having so much fun riding again! Colorado Springs has lots of hills that used to be too much to go up on a regular basis. Not anymore. I've rode Denver and Breckenridge, also. John is great and does a fabulous job. Highly recommended!!
I met John at an event in town, where he let me try his eBike...and it was so fun to ride! It got me hooked, and I had him convert a bike that I haven't been using too much - what a great idea! I did my first 20 mile commute with it, and loved it! Easier to get over the hills, arrived at work still feeling great, and felt safer in traffic because I was able to go faster. John was great to work with, and got my bike done quicker than I expected! I highly recommend contacting him if you're looking to turn a bike into an electric-assist model!
Rode my e-bike from Uintah / I-25 to the intersection of Rampart Range Road / Mt. Herman Road via Garden of the Gods on one charge. I am not opposed to getting some exercise, but it is nice being able to ride around the area and check things out without having the ride ruined by high winds and excessively steep hills.
I really love my e-bike! <3
