Ebikes that Go Beep, Whir and Buzz

Modes of Transportation

Bikes that go Beep, Whir and Buzz


Perhaps you've seen the funny Tesla video of the mechanic taking the Tesla out for a little "joy demo ride" after servicing the car. The old-school mechanic's never played with an electric car before and he exclaims that "it's like a freaking computer". It's transportation 2.0 and it's very much like a computer. The same paradigm shifts are happening in the bike world. The bikes we sell in our store and online have buttons the go beep, that make buzzing sounds and that propel you up hills with ease instead of with a grimace. They are bikes that delete the sweat from your arm pits and upgrade you to super-human climber status - able to climb hills as if you were going down them. We turn them on and we download software that is then uploaded to the on-board computer, to the controller, to the motor.

One of the great examples of this is the new Yuba Spicy Curry electric cargo bike. it's an electric cargo bike- a bike you can put stuff or people on and carry them around. This one has a motor in connected at the crank. It efficiently interacts with your own pedal strokes to double or triple your power output and lets you ride with cargo quicker and further.

We're offering demo rides on this amazing mode of transportation in our stores in Redwood City or San Francisco.

In the next few months a whole collection of ebikes are coming down the pipe that will feature electronic shifting as well as electronic power management. You'll just get on and pedal. The bike will do the rest. You still pedal. You still get your heart pumping, but you do it without the pain.

We have 2 stores presently that offer sales, service and test rides for ebikes. Redwood City and San Francisco locations are stocked with the best ebikes in the world.

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
