2013 Price Alert: Prodeco Bike Prices Rise

Prodeco bikes will be raising many prices starting at the beginning of the 2013 model year.  Prices on the Mariner 7, the Stride 500, the entire Phantom line, the Genesis 250, the Stride 250, the Stride 300, and the Storm 300 will increase by $100.  These are primarily “catch up” price increases on bikes that were underpriced all along.  The most major difference will be a slightly modified rack, which we have arranged to make available to purchasers of our 2012 models.

What we have been telling our customers since day one was that Prodeco was essentially selling their bikes at cost so they could build market share. Now they have decided to give themselves a better deal.  The overwhelming demand for their products gives them that opportunity in 2013.

Still, Prodeco continues to offer far more value than any electric bike manufacturer by many, many hundreds of dollars. 

One other change will be to the Stride 500 line.  As it stands, the black Stride 500 with a 9 amp battery is set at a very reasonable price for $1,299 and that will continue to remain the same.  For $1,499, you will be able to buy a pearlescent white Stride 500 with a 12 amp power battery and improved shock absorbers. This addition to the Stride line speaks right to our customers, who have made the Stride our second best selling model. We have had many customers wanting more range and a brighter color, and this new Stride delivers. We can’t wait to get our hands on them!

Aside from the existing product lines, Prodeco is releasing the highly-anticipated Outlaw electric bicycle.  This machine will have a 750 watt motor, allowing the bike to reach speeds of 28 mph without pedaling, or be set to the street legal speed of 20 mph, and is accompanied with a 48 volt LiFePO4 battery.  The Outlaw includes truly enormous shock absorbers and has many high-end components which, combined with the 33% increase in power, make its price of $2,199 a bargain as well.


The 2013 price increases primarily represent price catch-ups, as well as financing of Prodeco’s new large factory, which will eliminate 2012’s supply bottlenecks for good.

Prodeco is still the best bargain out there, both price and warranty.  Each bike comes with a two-year warranty on all of the electronics accompanied by a life-time warranty on the frame. hey stand behind their products.

You can find more information about the new 2013 product manual HERE. Not only will these bikes be a great addition to a new, eco-friendly lifestyle, but it can also be that thoughtful gift to give during the Holiday season. We are fortunate to have stocked up on most of the 2012 models, at 2012 prices, because we anticipated these price increases.  So, come in while these bargains are still here!!

Black Friday Seattle E-Bike Parade!


Many of you have been dreading this time of the year. When thinking about the best gift to give to your friends and family, you find that it can be quite daunting and tiresome. You end up giving your loved ones another version of last years gift; a different colored winter coat, another nice watch, a funky tie that they will never wear, a work-out machine that will stay in the garage for many years of collected dust, and so on. And then you look at your life. You find yourself hiding away in winters' hibernation at home and at your work desk in a long, drawn-out cycle for many months with no excitement or energy to do anything else. Well, how about trying something a little different, something that is the latest in today's technology, something that screams excitement and applying that to you or your loved one's daily life. The electric bike is the ultimate gift for the 2012 holiday season and here is what we would like to present to YOU...

Layer on your winter gear, grab your wallets, and come join us for a first-time ever event happening right here in downtown Seattle on the busiest shopping day of the year, Black Friday. 

Starting in the wee hours of the morning on November 23rd, people will be swarming around in the heart of Seattle scouting the best deals from their favorite stores. To break up their day and make it more fun and exciting, we are having our very own PARADE!! We will be dazzling you with about a dozen of our favorite bikes and demonstrating our passion for e-biking,  just after Macy’s does their annual event.

In the spirit of Black Friday, we will be offering outstanding deals in celebration of the holidays, as well as the bike riders who are considering the merits of our fabulous electric bikes, our electric or human powered Fat bikes, the amazing Ridekick e-trailer  that will electrify your own bike in 5 minutes for under $700, or even the Worlds finest e-bike, the amazing Stealth Bomber, priced at $12,000 before holiday discounts, and when you see it you will know it is worth it all. We also will show you some nifty electric trikes, including one that will carry objects as big as a refrigerator.

As you experience whatever weather November 23 brings us, remember that one great thing about an electric bike is it lets you dress warm and dry, and it keeps your pedaling intensity below the perspiration level, even going up steep hills.  (Unless you have a refrigerator on board.)

Here are the details for Black Friday:

When: November 23rd

Time: 9:30 am – 12 pm (roughly)

Where:  Starting at Occidental park in Pioneer Square, right in back of our store. Then, we make our way into the Retail Core via 1st. Then, through the Market if we can make it, then up Pike to 6th, then to Pine St, Pine to 4th, 4th to University to 5th back to Pine, down to Westlake, and home on 4th!

Who: The Seattle E-Bike staff, some of our dedicated customers and you! (dogs welcome…  Elephants even better!)

We will graciously be handing out fliers in offering our Black Friday Discounts for our Black Friday civilized door busters (at 2 p.m., not 4 a.m.), as well as our holiday season specials.

Check out or Facebook for an advanced copy of our sales brochure! Only our facebook likers can take advantage of the discounts in advance!

We welcome any and all to come and participate in the festivities and encourage you to hop on an electric bike and really understand how useful they are here in our hilly, dense city.

You really, really don't want to miss out on this fabulous event. For more information or if you would like to be involved, please email us at info@electricbikeseattle.com or call us at (206) 344-8000!
