The excitement of Spring is finally here and I am so fortunate to see it first hand at the bike shop. I know that folks have biking on their minds again when I see the typical signs of spring fever - the drive by shopper rolling by going 2 mph thinking about which bike he’d like to ride; the “twist my arm” guy who firmly just wants to look and takes only a slight nudge to convince him to jump on a bike and take a joyride; the woman who takes the time to ride 5 or 6 bikes, noting all the details and finding the perfect one. I can usually tell she’s found it by the big smile on her face; and one of my favorites, the family who is thinking about getting a cargo bike. The best part is the excitement that the kids have. They get a little wild, they want to climb up on the bikes, they get impatient - all in anticipation of riding bikes. As a parent, that’s a good problem to have!
My best advice to folks who are looking at eBikes is to get on as many bikes as possible and ride. There is no better way to research and compare than to experience it for yourself. We know a lot about eBikes and carry several quality brands, but you are the expert when it comes to choosing the eBike that will be your constant companion. You are the only one who can decide which bike feels right and will be the catalyst for more riding, more exercise and more fun. Our mission at Bend Electric Bikes is to get more people riding bikes more often. We feel it’s important to spend the time it takes to help you find the right eBike so that you feel motivated to get out and ride, and ride more! We’re here to support you and want you to feel at home in the shop - look, touch feel, ride a bunch of bikes, ask a bunch of questions. You can even call us and schedule an eBike Intro Ride so that we can give you our undivided attention and time to help guide you in your purchase process.
We’ve got over 100 bikes to try out and there are some new brands that we’re really excited about, including Benno, Giant and coming soon, Riese & Müller. There are still some great deals on 2016 Kalkhoffs - we just reduced prices another 20% on many models. We also have some new, high security locks from Abus; helmets from Bern and Kali; and the most fashionable accessory yet, the Oi Bell from Knog (yes, you can ring all the bells, too!)
We can’t wait to see you at the shop and ride bikes together!
