SEATTLE BIKE SWAP
The Seattle Bike Swap is a bike bargain hunter’s paradise. This huge bike garage sale will have great deals on new and used bike related goods of all types and sizes. Most sellers are cash only but some may take cards. This sale is one day only so don’t miss it!
If you have a complete bike you want to sell but don't want to rent a sellers space, we offer consignment. We will try to sell your bike for you for a fee ($10 plus 10% of the selling price). If you’re looking for top dollar on your bike, this option may not be for you. Bikes are priced to move. Consigmment bikes are sold for cash only.
To sell your bike on consignment:
It's really that simple. All proceeds will benefit Cascade's Major Taylor Project.
If you have a complete bike you would like to donate to the Major Taylor Project to sell at the swap, please contact Rich Brown firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
The Velicks 700 is a center drive electric road bicycle, the shop owners' favorite! This model is one of two lines made by a French manufacturer, SEV in Provence. They also make a scooter line named eTricks with a 1000 watt mid-drive motor system with speeds of up to 32 MPH.
The owner: "My personal opinion is the French bikes are the best of all worlds. The Italian bikes are the most stylish, the German bikes are the most Mercedes like. The French manage the beauty of the Italian bikes although in a French way, and with the precision of Germany.
My absolute favorite is the Velicks Speed. I just think it is the best looking E-Bike in the store. Combine that with a very sophisticated center drive, great components, perfect balance and handling, and a $4299 price tag, I find this to be the best bargain for an electric road bike."
Currently, we have one demo in the store that we are discounting heavily, with plans to bring more in soon.
If you have something to say about the product, the owner would love to hear it! Email him at email@example.com and discuss what you love about it! Any and all feedback is welcome!

Don't forget! We are experiencing slight confusion from those that haven't received the memo that we have MOVED! Please make note that our brand new location is now located just three blocks south from our original location at 570 1st Ave S, just barely north of the Century Link Field. We encourage you to take a look at our new space - even if it's not quite ready yet. It's about that time anyway to get your bikes un-dusted, out of the garage, and tuned up for the summer of adventures and fun!
Also, STAY TUNED for an announcement about our Grand Opening Party! You won't want to miss it - and we really mean that!
Happy Octoburrrrrr folks! We have now reached the off-season for bike-riding but that does not stop us or the new innovations in electric bike technology. We have many new electric vehicles in the making and are making BIG plans to accommodate it... stay tuned!
We are noticing that many folks around our neighborhood find it difficult when they wrap their minds around the concept behind electric bikes. Our savvy new Service Technician on board, Daniel Lauzon, does a fantastic job of explaining how electrical terms for an e-bike is interpreted in the American culture as well as how to do the math yourself, relatively speaking.
"The world of e-bikes can be very confusing to people who are not steeped in it. A slew of words get thrown around with little or no context to understand them. Most commonly, “watts” are used to determine the relative power of an electric system, but to many shoppers it's an arbitrary term. Today I'll be explaining what it means, the terms associated with it, and how you can use it to be smart about your next electric purchase.
Watts are a measure of energy either being produced or consumed. Most e-bikes on the market are equipped with a motor rater to between 250 and 500 watts. This means that, at its expected peak, the motor will convert 250 to 500 watts of energy, in this case electricity, into motion by turning the wheel. For e-bikes, this is used to describe the power of the motor the same way Horsepower is used for a car.
A motor's wattage isn't always useful to determine an e-bikes expected range, however. To estimate that, you need to look at the battery, which has two ratings: “voltage” and “amp-hours”, often abbreviated to “V” and “Ah”. Volts are the amount of stored 'oomph' the battery can hold, or a measurement of potential energy. Amps are a measure of current, best thought of here as how quickly the battery can discharge the volts of potential energy into watts of usable power.
Because an e-bike has a complete system, the amps are measured in hour time frames and marked as “Amp-hours”. This allows you to do the range math: potential power (Volts) multiplied by how fast the battery can discharge that energy (Amp-hours) gives you “Watt-hours”, often abbreviated “Wh”. You can then divide the battery's watt-hours by the wattage of the motor, telling you how many hours the battery can power the motor at the motor's top speed. Multiply that by the top speed in miles per hour, and you have the estimated range in miles!
In the real world, this is much more complicated. A 500 watt motor will often consume up to 750 watts during hard acceleration or trying to maintain top speed up a hill. Often you will be pedaling your e-bike, taking some or all of the load away from the motor, and sometimes you'll be coasting. These things can all shift an e-bike's range to a significant degree from what is listed. Pedal-assist bicycles often have more ranges that are easier to replicate in daily riding because they encourage the rider to pedal, while throttle-based systems can be used at maximum with no immediate consequences.
This explanation is meant to give you a better idea of what the terms and numbers associated with e-bikes mean. The explanations have been simplified significantly so they can be understood more easily and the calculations are rules of thumb rather than rigorous scientific equations. Nevertheless, you can use them for “back-of-the-napkin” math problems and as a way to understand the pros and cons of different e-bikes and their motor systems."
Now that we all know how the terminology that makes up an electric bike semi-works, imagine yourself riding an e-bike without having to sweat and conquering that hill at around 4 cents per charge! Equate that into miles per gallon, with the gas price at $4 a gallon at 20 miles a gallon and 20 miles per charge on an electric bike, that would be 2,000 miles per gallon monetarily speaking for the electric bike! This efficient, eco-friendly way of transportation simply puts the cash back in your pocket while giving you an exhilarating and efficient bike ride to wherever you need to go, whenever.
Have more thoughts or questions about having an electric bike in your life? Call our shop at (206) 344-8000 Tuesday-Saturday 11-6:30 and we'd be happy to assist you through it!
Happy (Safe) Riding folks!
Hello fellow bike riders,
So far, this past summer has been a fantastic year for our business, thanks partly to our beautiful Seattle summer weather. For those that have supported us, we can't thank you enough and hope you are enjoying your summer rides as much as we are! We've listened to your feedback and we are taking big leaps in the evolution of our company. Please stay tuned for future updates!
On to our most recent event coming up this week: DUNEFEST! This will be our first year participating in this event, located on the Oregon coast, and we are going in with a bang. We are proud to be one of the sponsors of the event so if you are planning on attending please don't hesitate to stop by our booth!
Here are a few reasons why:
- Fat Bikes. Fat Bikes. Fat Bikes. We will have an enormous inventory of fat bikes to choose from, including standard fats, electric fats for regulated roads and high-speed, high-torque off-roading. Don't forget to bring the kids over as well because the newly-released Fat Sand bikes for kids will be debuted at our booth as well! We will also have some of our popularly-sold electric models at the event to broaden e-bike use outside of the dirty, off-road tracks.
-The AMP by Epic Electric Vehicles.
This 4-wheeled beast is your ultimate off-road companion! With 40 kilowatts (that's 54 horse power!!) equipped with the ultra-durable Fox shocks, this all-terrain machine can take you at speeds of 45+ miles per hour and up to 50 miles on a single charge. There really is not any kind of terrain that you can't go on with this rig. We are more than thrilled to be debuting the AMP at a couldn't-be-more-fitting festival and we highly suggest you come by our station to see the hype with your own eyes yourself!
-Our OWN TRACK for free test rides! That is right. You heard it. We will be allowing inquiring folks to take a spin with our bikes. Seriously, what more could you ask for? A little bit of dirt and effortlessly silent acceleration on a beautiful track will be all you need to justify coming out to DuneFest and stopping by to speak with some of the wisest people in the biz.
Need we say more? Come get dirty with us and learn more about our products first-hand and get some more adventure in your life! Tis' the season!
