Meet the Seattle E-Bike Mascots (WOOF!)

This may seem silly to some of you, but to us we find much joy during our busy days with these furry co-workers of ours and we found it appropriate to introduce them to you:

 

MEET THORSSEN: 

Our Chief Canine is THORSSEN, Senior Mascot of Seattle E-Bike. Thorssen is a Norwegian Elkhound.  "Elk" is actually "Elg" in Norwegian and that means moose.  Like Bullwinkle, but without the personality and not a cartoon. Thorssen ancestors used to help the Vikings hunt Moose. However, this is the 21st Century, and so he works at an E-Bike store. Thorssen weighs 38 pounds, is 2.5 years old, and believes the key to his success as a mascot is making sure he sleeps at the store at least 3 hours a day. He finds that the ultimate customer service experience is greeting every customer that comes into the store, though sometimes he is just too tuckered out after long meetings with his assistant that you might find him blended in with the cement walls in the shop snoozing. His favorite bike is the Focus Thron. We think it is because he likes the name.  He actually has difficulty riding, since without oppose-able thumbs, he can't shift or brake.  

 

MEET PAOLO:

PAOLO is the newest addition to the Seattle E-Bike squad as the new Assistant Mascot to THORSSEN. He was rescued from Southern California after his mother shortly gave birth to him and his brothers and sisters. He has a slightly floppy right ear, curly long tail with brindle paws. Though Paolo is indeed a mystery as to what breeds he has, he definitely has a little Chow, Australian Kelpie and Shepard. He is one humble dog! He'll let you play with his toys, take his treats, and even pick him up. In fact, he still tends to consider himself a lap dog and will pleasantly sit on your lap if you allow him to. Don't let his mellow phys-ad fool you, he has plenty of character when it comes to play time! He loves to wrestle other dogs when they are willing but shies away when barked at. He especially loves playing with his older colleague Thorsson as they tend to find themselves intensely collaborating with intertwined wrestling matches. Even though Paolo is 5 months young, he is a quick learner and a great asset to the team! 

We welcome animals in our shop since we are all lovers of them (as long as they pass the inspection of our fellow furry employees of course) and encourage folks to bring in their pet while checking out e-bikes! 

“Dogs don't rationalize. They don't hold anything against a person. They don't see the outside of a human but the inside of a human.”

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!

Our extensive Fat Bike Line-Up

Fat e-Bikes, is there anything they can't do? Anywhere they can't go?

Well, yes:

1. The Moon (although they would work great once they got there)

2. Certain other obscure locations in the Galaxy

BUT, that being said, when it comes to tackling sand dunes on the beach, shredding in snow up to 10" deep, or traversing cross country ski trails (fat e-bikes are legal there); handling swamps, mud, cobblestone streets, crossing railroad tracks and curbs at any angle, or climbing 35 degree slopes, the Fat E-Bike is up to the challenge, and for the true adventurer, your go-anywhere machine.

Seattle E-Bike brought the first Fat Bikes to the area, quickly followed by the first E-Fats ( E-Monster). Then we worked with Polaris on their Fat E-bike (the Sabre). Now we manufacture our own (Kulshan), selecting top of the line motors installed in shop and available as both hub motors and center drives. And for the cycle purist we also make a Carbon Fat: at 29 lbs (we can get to 27) which lets you pedal unassisted and fly through the air on single trails and downhills.

As more and more people experience the joy of riding a Fat E-bike, snow is fast becoming one of the greatest places to ride.

Come in for a test ride on any of our Fat Tire bikes, & for the month of February we are offering 40% off on all our Fat Sand brand bikes, including the E-monster.

There is obviously a major event happening tomorrow that many of us are losing sleep, biting our finger nails, and finding it hard to focus on. We at Seattle E-Bike sure are! On this note, we decided to have some fun by the Century Link Field today that has boosted the spirit of what many like the call "The Glory Days of the Seahawks."

Take a look at how we like to prepare for the game on the newest e-trike ride that has many people jealous already....

Oh, and GO HAWKS!!!!!

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.

ATTN Seattle Boat Show Attendees: The Smallest Folding, Compact E-Bike has arrived!

If you weren't in the SODO area of Seattle this past weekend enjoying one of the biggest comebacks of ALL TIME (THANK YOU SEAHAWKS!!!) you might have noticed the array of boats gearing up for the annual Seattle Boat Show, the largest Boat Show on the west coast. One of the reasons why we carry so many compact, foldable e-bike lines, is due to the popularity of boat owners using them as they travel from port-to-port. Well now we just added more to our collection and we are excited to share with our e-bike fans!

One problem people have, even with our current compact bikes we carry, is that they may not get as small or as light as they were hoping them to be. Well, we have come across the lightest weight (30 lbs!) and smallest-folding e-bike on the market with it's 16" wheels. With the configuration of a 24V battery and 200 watt motor, this e-bike will get you cruisin' at a max speed of 15 MPH as you enjoy your ride and save your energy checking out new towns you discover! This bike can easily be folded up to bring on a bus, stow away on a boat or RV, or you can fit several in the trunk! Check them out!

If you didn't think this was the most convenient e-bike on the market, would $899 get your attention?! If not, how about this: if you are considering one for you and one for a friend or significant other, we will offer 10% OFF YOUR ENTIRE PURCHASE! This e-bike couldn't be more of a steal! Check them out at our location today while you're in the area!

Focus & Kalkhoff E-Bikes: Our newest bike line!

We got Chills and they’re Electrifying!!

Yes it’s true. It’s not the cold weather causing them, but rather our excitement after our first test ride on a Thron Impulse by Focus, a masterpiece of German bicycle engineering, and new addition to the Seattle E-bike family. Just shipped in last week, our mechanic Ben attested to his satisfaction of the bike after taking it for a test ride with an ear-to-ear grin. A couple more test rides later and our staff was demonstrating excitement on par with kids on Christmas morning.

Well Santa, I’m saying it now: all I want for Christmas is a Focus Thron Impulse

 

Almost since our inception, we have been the northwest go-to hot spot for E-bikes, especially European-made, from slick SEV Velicks to elegant cruisers by Johnny Loco and Lampociclo. It’s safe to say that we were thrilled and honored to be approached by Derby Cycles, the largest manufacturer of Bicycles in Germany (a country surpassed by almost none in regards to vehicle engineering) to represent their E-bike lines: Focus and Kalkhoff. Their superb bikes are configured for all tastes, including Commuter, Euro-style Cruisers, Hard Tail Mountain Bikes, and most especially (!!!) that beautiful specimen of German bike engineering: the Thron, one of our only full-suspension Mountain E-Bikes, and probably the most capable E-Bike we've ever carried…

  

And here’s why:

Made in Cloppenburg, Germany, all Focus and Kalkhoff E-bikes are finished and assembled in the factory (a unique practice in today’s bicycle industry) and are equipped with their proprietary mid-drive Impulse Motor System, designed and engineered in-house. They are also the only E-Bike manufacturers we know of who make their own motors. Very high in initial torque, and with proprietary sensors, these are the smoothest shifting mid-drive E-Bikes we've ever tried. Nominally rated at 250 and 350 watts, they out-perform other bikes rated at twice that wattage, and the larger battery versions have range ratings from 50-127 miles!

It’s not a stretch to say this motor system has a huge part to do with why we are so in love with their bikes.

And did we mention Torque?? The Thron we tried out lacks the usual delay of one full rotation (or more) of the wheel/pedal before the power assist kicks in typical of most E-Bikes. Instead, it has an almost instantaneous assist, giving us our “go” right when we ask for it, a result more in-line with a car or motorcycle; thus giving us a more controlled and effective riding experience. Nothing is better than knowing you can get out of the way of a naughty driver right when you need to or conquer a steep incline right away.

We won’t even get into the way the bike looks, or the multitude of top-of-the-line components by well-reputable brands that combine to create this mastery of bicycle engineering. You need to see it to believe it. You need to ride it to get it. Come visit us to take a test ride…It’s still not too late to tell Santa about the Thron.

NO TAX on electric motorcycles again?!

 

Great news for our Brammo customers!!

This week, the House and Senate passed, and the President signed, the The Tax Increase Prevention Act. Check out the latest press release from CNBC Here.

Last year, the tax incentive ended on December 31st, not allowing those that purchased an electric motorcycle any tax break. Well, they have finally passed the bill to extend that tax incentive ONLY UNTIL DECEMBER 31st, 2014 to allow money back into e-moto purchasers pocket! YAHOOO!! So if you were deliberating on purchasing an electric motorcycle, now could be the most perfect time to do so before the year is out.

In regards to our fellow customers as of this last year, if you bought a Brammo or Stealth Bomber from us in 2014, you are able to get a tax credit up to 10% of what you paid, less state tax. All you simply have to do is file your 8834 form, even though the form has not been finalized, and you will get a refund equal to 10% of the purchase price or else application of it towards any tax due. You will simply have to wait until the form is ready so don't file your taxes early!

Want to buy one? You only have until the end of the 2014 to get it at the best possible price that the Brammo models will EVER be sold at, as well as getting a tax break. This is fast-acting 12 day legislation.
