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.

Next Stop: DUNEFEST

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!

All-Season Fat Bikes are IN at Seattle E-Bike

ALL-season bikes are IN. Pick one up from us TODAY! We stock all kinds of fat tire bikes from electric to non-electric...

Here are a couple of links to recent news coverage of how much fun people are having on fat bikes in the Methow Valley this winter:

http://seattletimes.com/html/outdoors/2020250680_snowbikesmethowxml.html

These bikes work amazingly well in any snowy area as a great alternative to cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Come try them out today at Seattle E-Bike. We have electric and non-electric fat bikes in many colors both for sale and for rent. 

Our fat bikes are guaranteed to put a big smile on your face!

The electric fat bikes we have are _super_ fun in the snow--you can get assistance with pedaling when you want it without any smelly gasoline or loud motor noise that you get with snowmobiles. Electric bikes are virtually silent and just help you enjoy the peace and quiet of being out in the snow.

Here's a pic of our mechanic Tim having a blast on our Seattle E-Bike trip to the snow in December:
