Some Great Commuter Ebikes Under $3000



For most people, the idea of spending $3,000 or $2,000 or even $1,000 for a bicycle is little more than an impossibility. But, if you've put yourself in the market for an electric bike, you know that anything under $1000 is not worth your time and that all the highest quality bikes start at around $4,000. 

But this does not mean you have to settle for POS ebike that you can't ride around with a sound mind on, knowing it won't break down on you and knowing you can you can expect lots of miles on it in the future. 

Some shops will flat out tell you that you need to buy the "highest quality" or most "high end" bike you can get or not buy anything at all. We disagree and we're not bike snobs and that's one of the many reasons customers come to our store vs other stores around the Bay Area- we offer a wide selection of bikes in various price points and quality ranges all over the spectrum. 

For new riders of an electric bike, a price point ebike may be the right bike to get to start with. Also, if the bike is going to be ridden and parked in a high-theft area, you'd only be doing the thief a great favor by parking your "high quality" bike on the street only for it to get stolen. 

We think, a price-point bike can be some thing worth your money and time if you just don't need a high performance ebike to do the job. For this, there's a long list of price oriented ebikes that pack a lot of punch. Here's some of our favorites:

A2B KUO+ Electric Folding Bike - this little folding ebike packs a lot of punch for just $1699.00. A true Swiss Army knife of the ebike world. It folds. It climbs. It goes. It saves you time and money. 

A2B Ferber Ebike - this standard town commuter is priced at $2299, features a 350W motor and scoots around town or paths reliably and efficiently. 

iZIP PEAK - The latest iZIP Peak is a competent on and off road ebike with a mid-drive motor and a long lasting LI battery for just $3,000.

iZIP ZUMA - Rear hub motor and cruiser comfort for just $2550. 500Watts of power with both a throttle and pedal assist mode. 

BLIX KOMFORT - this 3 speed town cruiser is designed in Sweden and looks sweet. It's priced great too at $1990. 

Magnum Ui5 - a step thru model bike with big battery and lots of features for just $1800. 

These are just some of price point ebikes we sell here at Motostrano. Our stores are stocked to the ceiling with the largest variety of ebikes in California. Come see for your self.

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
