e-Bikes, get em while they’re hot!

SOLD…

Last December, we bought two premium electric bikes with the idea that we’d use them to slowly get back into biking since you can pedal with various levels of electric motor assist, or use the twist throttle when you’re tired of pedaling and just need to get home. 🙂
