We’ve been big fans of electric bikes (e-bikes) for years, watching them explode in numbers all around Europe and Asia, especially in big cities. So we teamed up with BionX to create a line of stylish modern e-bikes designed to put a smile on your face as you zip around town. We’ve been testing them thoroughly for months, up and down the hills of San Francisco, against stiff headwinds, across town late at night, and we are smitten. Test ride one for yourself, and we know you'll love them too.

 

 

What is an E-Bike?

 

E-bikes come in many forms and flavors. The e-bikes we’re offering are more properly described as “pedal assist bikes.” They require pedaling and the electrical assist powers you just when you need and want it. (Some other e-bikes are more like scooters with throttles). With these e-bikes you can turn on the power and dial it up when you need it, making riding so fun and easy that you never have to fear a hill, break into a sweat, or struggle carrying extra weight ever again.  It’s like jet pack booster, and guaranteed to make you smile.  You plug it in at night or whenever your bike is idle to charge. When fully charged you are good for 20 to 50 miles of pedal-assist riding.

Take One Home Tonight – Borrow an E-Bike for the Evening

You’ve got to ride these to fully appreciate them. If you’re in the Bay Area, stop by our South Park or Valencia store and take one out for a spin. If you contact us ahead of time, we will be able to loan you an electric bike to use overnight or for the day with a credit card deposit. Find out more about our E-Bike Loaner Program

 

Electric Bikes Are Fun, Fast & Flexible


PUBLIC Electric Mixte BionX San Francisco hillsIt’s exhilarating fun – recharge your love of cycling 

 

The boost you get from the motor gives you a little thrill like the one you get when you take off on a wave surfing, or the way a plane feels taking off, or the way that first hit of espresso feels in the morning. It’s a nice lift, a little gift. The extra power is great when you do a lot of stop and start city riding. But beware...the other bicyclists can get envious when you take off ahead of them when the stoplight turns green.

 

Stromer ST1 Platinum in San FranciscoSpeedy But Safe

 

These bikes allow you to ride up to 20+ mph almost anywhere, even up and over hills. But the motors are governed (by law) to disengage at higher speeds or when you use your brakes, keeping you from getting out of control.

 

Convenient and Commuter Friendly

 

Ride up to 25-40 miles on a full charge, and simply plug in the charger in a regular outlet for a few hours at your home or office.

 

BionX Electric Bikes in San FranciscoGo Where You Want Fast & Easy

 

You can ride the bike without pedal assist, or with pedal assist at different power levels depending on how you feel and your riding conditions. It’s just a question of how much effort you want to exert. They are especially wonderful at the end of the day when you want to get home quickly without exertion, or when you need to get across town quickly.

We’ve extensively tested these electric bikes we’re offering while climbing the steepest hills in San Francisco and beyond. We feel confident that if we can climb these hills without breaking a sweat, you’ll have plenty of power to climb the hilly roads on your ride.

 

Free Shipping on Stromer ST1 Electric BikesMore Cost-Effective Than a Scooter or Car

 

Electric bikes provide the functionality of most mopeds or scooters, but with the advantages that that you never have to pay for parking, nor buy insurance, nor deal with the DMV and a license. You can still take them on most public transit systems that allow bikes and use them in bike lanes. You can weave through traffic (in a safe manner) like a bike. But you can still get some exercise when you need it.

 

Life is more fun on an electric bike from PUBLIC.Life Should Be Fun Not Hard

 

All bikes, electrical or otherwise, have the capacity to put a smile on our faces. This is why we love them and ride whenever we can. If your daily commute needs to be a little more enjoyable, or if you don’t ride as often as you’d like because of the extra distance or strenuous or sweaty nature of the trip, we highly recommend the e-bike option. We’ve become addicts ourselves.
