Here’s a chance to ride an electric bicycle, and compare brands.
Myron’s Extreme Machines, Fullerton’s Electric Bicycle Center, is having an electric bicycle show 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 7.
All the bicycle brands sold by the shop will be available for test rides, Sam Townsend, owner, told the Veggie Biking. “We stock a total of 12 different brands and over 50 floor models to choose from making us one of the largest retail stores in the nation to sell electric bikes,trikes,and kits. We even stock an electric motorized trailer,” he writes on his web site.
Brands Include: iZip, eflow, eZip, E-motion, Motiv, Hebb, EG Bike, e-Joe, Juiced, eMoto, and BionX.
Myron’s, as a store, has 25 years experience selling and servicing gas and electric bikes. The shop offers test rides and side-by-side comparisons of bike brands. The Veggie Biker recently took a test ride on a pedal-assist electric bike that interests him. He has his electric Hebb bicycle serviced by Sam.
The store is open six days a week, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday thru Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays.
The store started dealing in electric bikes in 1988. However, the lithium battery kicked off the electric bicycle industry in 2008. Over the last 5 years electric bikes have been the fastest growing segment of the bicycle industry, Sam writes.
There are bike shops in Orange County who do not let customers test ride electric bikes. This is a chance to try before you buy.
