In case you haven't noticed Nelson is built on the side of a mountain. Mountains are hard to ride up even for the fittest percentage of the population. Wouldn't it be nice to get home fresh and with enough steam to play with the kids/grandkids or tackle those chores before dinner?
Why not come on down to the shop and check out the Kootenay's most complete Electric Bike selection.
We have been selling Electric Bikes for over a decade and there is no better time than now to see where the technology has lead us. The Electric Bikes we have in store are the result of us being discerning bike girls and guys. They all have nice bike parts that work, not cheesy parts thrown on a bike frame with a motor. Come see and feel the difference.
SOME BENEFITS OF MID DRIVE MOTORS:
Environmental benefits can be realized by substituting a e-bike for a car, or even a car trip. Studies vary but it's commonly stated that, over a given distance, e-bikes charged from the grid produce about 100 times less GHG than a car. And they're much cheaper to run.
If insurmountable hills stand between you and where you'd like to ride, a mid-drive motor can be the answer. Even steep grades seemingly melt away. With 4 modes of assist and the mechanical advantage of multiple gears on the back wheel, you can conquer the mountains or town's with as much, or as little effort as you choose to enjoy.
RIDE MORE OFTEN
Because you can dial in your effort to suit your mood without necessarily forfeiting speed, hopping on a bike becomes a great transportation option on more occasions.
The assist can reduce strain on your legs, back and arms making riding a bike a more pleasurable. If you have the will to venture out but not necessarily the brawn, the mid-drive e-bike will set you on your way.
