Motostrano's SF Store @ 1452 Bush St

The build-out on our SF store is in the works! We started moving in last week and the store is filling up with bikes and product. We are sometimes open too, so please text us or call us at 650-918-6259 to schedule an appointment.

Just 30 miles north of our Redwood City store, our largest customer base has always been from the City. It's been a long-time dream to open a store in San Francisco to cater to these customers with a cool showroom of urban bikes and gear for the San Francisco rider and beyond. Further, customers in the North Bay and East Bay now have an easier trek to get to the Motostrano products and service. Hop on Bart or just get on the GG Bridge and you're there.

While our Redwood City location will remain our larger warehouse/showroom and shipping center. Our San Francisco store will focus on a sub-set of the motostrano catalog, featuring Vanmoof bicycles, electric bicycles, Felt Bikes, Leader Bikes and soon some of our moto and supermoto goods. Expect to see some supermoto wheels, Rizoma goods and Roland Sands clothing soon.

As you can see from the photos above, the shop is already looking good, with nice modern lighting and a concrete floor. At 1452 Bush St, getting to the shop is easy from all directions and there's always parking right in front of the shop. If not, there's a private garage next door and if you buy a bike, we'll pay you're parking.

With a focus on urban transportation, our SF store is about bicycle design, technology and sport. Bicycling makes transportation fun and healthy and there's there's always a certain fetish with the bicycle as a designed object that appeals to us and makes us want to own it.

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.   

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and
