Why we said "Yes" to the Gauswheel Spirit Monowheel (and why you will too...)

We are Seattle E-Bike. How can you tell? There is a sign out front. Also walk inside and see dozens and dozens of E-Bikes from Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, the U.S.A, Taiwan, and yes, for the budget conscious, China.

Sometimes though, something will have wheels, no motor, and it is so beautiful, or so cool, that we can’t resist. (The stunning Cicli Blume handmade Italian Bikes are one).

Today's post is most definitely about something way cool, brilliant even: The Gauswheel, from Hungary.

The thing is brilliantly designed, and far more versatile, practical, fun, and tough than any monowheel on the market.
If you like to ski, you will love the Gauswheel.
If you love to Shred, you will love the Gauswheel.
If you spend your days at the board park, you will love the Gauswheel.
If you want to scoot to the Bus, fold it up in 5 walk on like you have a 20 pound briefcase and skip the bike rack: Gauswheel, perfect for the last mile of your commute.
If you are from the Northwest and nearly cry everytime you think about those brown ski slopes up there, the worst winter in 40 years: THE GAUSWHEEL WILL EASE YOUR PAIN.

Need to see more? Check out the video

There are two great versions for Seattle:

Check out the braked Spirit Stage 3 (right photo above). Gauswheel publishes comprehensive specs, and it is clear that if you like a nice five foot drop onto concrete, this is your machine. If pain and/or fear is part of the pleasure, this beast will hold up to the abuse.

Sane people deserve Gauswheels, too. They can enjoy the Stage 3, but the Spirit Stage 5 (above left) is slightly more gorgeous in PolyCarbonate: More Beauty, less Beast.

Thought the ski season was over, or actually, never happened? Wrong. Gauswheel.

Gauswheel, coming to the only Seattle E-Bike near you. 570 First Avenue South. Seattle 98101

New Polaris eBikes have arrived!

We are delighted with the new product line Polaris has debuted for 2015. They have not only incorporated regenerative braking/coasting, but these rides are FAST! Not mention a big thumbs up on their design! We are always appreciative of batteries being built into the frames without losing the rigidity of the bike and stylish appeal. We find them to really be the superior bike for the coming 2015 year and are thrilled to announce their arrival at last. The Fat Bikes are especially good looking with a rugged but functional ride for everyday use as well. Most importantly, they have really listened and took a major leap in their new product line compared to their last in terms of overall performance, with some of their models reaching speeds of 25+ MPH!  

 

Check out some of their bikes:

 

To top it off, we were able to make a special arrangement which will allow us to offer 5% OFF our first TEN 2015 models sold. Say WHAT?!  Why wait? Come in for a test drive already!

Tri-Iffic! Why we love Ti-Trikes new E-Bike

Space age sleekness? Check

Rehab therapist and engineer approved? Check

Coolest Trike we've seen? Check

Coolest Trike we've rode? Double Check.

Last week, we got in what a lot of us think is the most impressive machine ever: our first recumbent bike. But it is also so much more. Powerful and fast, with a gleaming 100 percent titanium frame, superb brakes, and a phenomenally sophisticated steering system, there is little to not love about this marvel of cycle engineering now in our showroom. Our first one is the T250, but we are shortly getting a T450 power assisted hand powered model for people who have no leg function.

Built in Connecticut by a company run by an occupational therapist and a rehab therapist, Ti-Trikes is the first company in the world to design, develop, and build a power-assisted recumbent tricycle. They did this for one simple reason; to make cycling accessible to a broader range of people. With electric propulsion, riders of all ages, shapes, sizes, and ability levels can now be out on the roads riding along with their friends and family.

The owner’s mother came down with MS when he was 7. He saw this machine primarily as a way for people like her to get out and experience the world at a clip, rather than being stuck in a wheelchair, or on a 3 mph power scooter with no suspension or outside capability. If you can walk 20 feet, you can get in and out of the T250. If you are paraplegic, you can pedal the T450, and with electric help, go 40 miles at 20 mph. That's a pretty amazing breakthrough for those who are used to having limited freedom.

What's more, this "problem solver" has morphed into a bike that any cyclist can enjoy, and will. It's already become a favorite among the staff for test rides. With its powerful steering system, smooth ride, and NASA contoured Memory Foam adjustable seat, what's not to love? (And did we mention that Aerospace grade welded Titanium frame?!?)

Don't come down with a case of sticker shock; at $5599 it may offer more value for the money than anything in the store.

Check out more pictures and specs on our website, come in for a test drive, and see if you don’t agree. And you just may liberate yourself, or someone you love, from a wheelchair.

For more information you can visit Ti-Trikes website here

Seattle E-Bike's Extensive Folding Electric Bike Collection

We are thrilled to now offer three different folding bikes for our customers to choose from: E3 CompactEpik Lite, and Mariner 7All three of these bikes are double folding models, making transporting and storing easier than any other bike out there! 

So why must we carry so many folders?

Folding bikes are rising in popularity among commuters in Seattle and across the country. Many people have come into our shop and had their eyes set on a full size bike and then realize the convenience of our folders and can't take their eyes off of them! Not to mention, all of these bikes are fairly inexpensive, especially when compared to the non-folding models we carry. They usually come with a smaller motor, but a small motor goes quite a long way in overall torque and battery life on a 20" wheel compared to a larger motor and wheel.

Come in and try one out today! You will be leaving with a smile - we guarantee it!

New Store Hours!

 

That's right folks. As we approach better weather, we are allowing riders to come visit us more on the days they can enjoy the outdoors the most - on the weekend! We will NOW be open on Sunday from NOON until 5:00 PM so if you are interested in swinging by the shop on your way to the market or a lovely ride on the water, we welcome you to stop by our shop while you're at it. 


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!

$1000 OFF ON POLARIS MERIDIAN SPECIAL PURCHASE, NORMALLY $2999!

Polaris has awarded Seattle E-Bike it's highest dealer status -- we are now a Factory Fixture Store!!  

This makes us the flagship Polaris E-Bike store in the Northwest.  To celebrate, Polaris offered us a special buying opportunity on two containers of the 2013 Meridian, the flagship of Polaris’ superb fleet of E-Bikes.  It is Polaris’ purpose to build the ultimate urban commuter.  The tires are half of the width of other Polaris e-bikes, which are specially designed to handle the higher pressure efficiency commuting requires.  However, unlike many commuter bikes, it has a 75 mm SunTour AVX suspension front forks so comfort is maintained, even with the hyper-efficient running gear.  Only the Meridian has fenders and headlight standard, again consistent with its commuter mission.

Regularly $2999, our special buy allows us to offer it for $1999!  It is available in the standard configuration in gunmetal or the easy-to-board ST-1 in white.  The Meridian is limited in production and, therefore, very hard to find so we are excited to have this opportunity to share with you! Come on over to our new location to check out this superb hybrid commuter!
