3.2 Do you carry electric bikes?
Yes we have a huge selection of electric bikes! We stock Specialized, Norco, and Marin e-bikes and have a wide range of models from comfort and commuters to road and full suspension e-bikes. All of the e-bikes we stock have centre mount motors and integrated batteries. This allows the bikes to have a longer range, it reduces wear on parts, makes it easier to change tubes and tires, it helps keep your centre of gravity low, and allows your e-bike to ride like a bike even if the battery dies but with that extra assist.
All of the electric bikes we stock are compliant with BC and Canadian laws
