E-Bike Financing Now Available at Motostrano - Electric Bike Buying Made Easy

We know an e-bike purchase is a big thing for a lot of people, which is why we worked hard over the past year to put together a consumer financing option that we felt would be something we could offer to our customers with a good feeling and help people get the bike they want sooner rather than later. With electric bikes costing upwards of $2000, $4000 and even $8000, we wanted to offer a financing option to our customers that worked.  After a lot of shopping around, we selected Synchrony bank (formerly GE Capital) as our go-to people for our consumer financing and so far the results have been very positive. Particularly around the holidays, it's helpful to have the option of paying for something later. With GE, we are able to offer a variety of programs, plus an easy, hassle-free application process that is just like signing up for a store card at a department store. The process is simple. Use our web site to figure out what e-bikes might work best for you. Then cal

E-Bikes Are Life Changing For Dutch in Marin County

Dutch is in his 80's. He surfs and rides mountain bikes all over Marin county on his Haibike AMT XDURO Electric Mountain bike. He's part of a group of 3 or 4 other riders, also in Marin, old timers of the trails up there who are having a blast and "second wind" using their electric mountain bikes to help them up the trails. Dutch brought his baby in for a little fine tuning today and Kenny is going over it with a microscope. Kenny is our master bicycle mechanic here at Motostrano and brings years of technical and customer experience to our organization. He's a Navy vet, has been wrenching on bicycles for ever and when he's not pedaling on two wheels, he's blasting around on his KTM motorcycle off-road. Dutch's baby is in good hands, in other words. Dutch and his gang use their bikes 3 or 4 times a week, both together and on their own and it's changed the way they live. Don't feel too bad if they pass you going up hill on a Black Dia

WOW- the Prodeco Tech Outlaw Is A Monster Ebike

We sell many kinds of ebikes. the Prodeco Tech Outlaw SS is unlike any other. It's beefy with huge front suspension ready for downhill jaunts. It's wide, with fat Continental downhill tires. It's tall with tons of clearance and wide handlebars. This bike is a blast to ride and does best off-road. It could be used as a commuter too, but it's most fun when used as an up hill lift chair. Use the motor to get you up. Use gravity to get you down. Repeat. If it had a fat KTM sticker on the side of the frame you wouldn't know the difference. But, at just $2199 for this kind of non-stop fun, with no fill-ups and no oil changes, you can ride for ever and pay just pennies. It's a blast. We are the Prodeco Tech dealer for San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Visit us to test ride the Outlaw and you'll buy one.

Bosch Electric Bike Motors for 2014

Since BOSCH announced its plans to enter the US market with a strong presence and a great support program, Motostrano customers have shown a great interest in this ebike platform. Motostrano is in the fortunate position of being able to offer multiple brands of ebikes that will utilize the Bosch ebike motor and battery system. With our main focus as a bike shop centered around the Felt brand- our goal is to be the premier spot for you to try and buy the Felt line of ebikes . For 2014 Felt has said we'll get 2 different models of e-bikes , though we are not yet sure which ones they'll be. We hope we get the Fat bike ebike and a commuter hybrid, to start. In the meantime, there's a long list of Haibike off-road ebikes that are scheduled to come to the United States and many of those can already be pre-ordered on our web site. When asked, or not- we've explained to ebike makers that their ebikes need to be as reliable and dependable as an electric shaver. We sho
