Why do we specialize in IZIP? As an IZIP specialist we can carry more models and be more informed on the complete line-up of this brand. In fact if you are looking for an IZIP model, we stock every currently available 2016 model as well as most 2015 models at close-out pricing. Also, as new models and accessories become available we are usually one of the first to have them. You will find that most IBD’s (independent bicycle stores) carry only a few eBikes if any at all and although some eIBD’s (independent electric bicycle stores) carry more eBikes, they may carry as many as 20 brands and will not have the assortment of IZIP models that we carry.
Why IZIP? We have found that this line has some of the most advanced eBikes on the market. IZIP has eBikes with onboard diagnostics, cruise control, ambient light sensors and in the case of new 2016 IZIP Protour and Vibe+ models they even have CAN bus technology that allows for computer diagnostics and software upgradeability. Besides being technically advanced, IZIP eBikes have an unparalleled support system for their dealers and customers. Things like on-line TSB’s (technical service bulletins), illustrated repair and installation procedures, owner’s manuals, operation guides, specification and care guides. Try to find all this in another brand!

See what our customers say about us on Yelp:
“Best place in the bay area to buy an e-bike. First impression is that it does not look like any bike store, but boy am I happy I stopped by. The owner Steve is very passionate and he has tried out every bike that he sells. Jim is also a great, knowledgeable and helpful person. I tested most of the bikes and got to do a longer trial with one of the bikes. It took me a while and I like to get educated before making a bigger purchase. I got emailed lots of information and links to independent product reviews. I know for a fact that without the excellent service I would have purchased the wrong bike. I'm so pleasantly surprised that there are people that still believe in that good service will bring them more business and an educated customer is a returning customer. If you ever get tiered of selling e-bikes and parts you can always start educating other businesses how to treat customers and keep loving what you do!”
Teach Kids These Basic Skills - In order to ride safely, children must be able to balance, steer and stop. So, teach them these skills by practicing with them in a safe location such as an empty parking lot or park. Make sure that they're comfortable getting on and off the bike. Have them ride along a straight line and in circles. Get them to brake hard enough to skid the tire. And be sure to talk to them and explain the importance of riding a straight line, obeying traffic rules and being extremely careful and alert whenever they're riding.
