Austin, TX, December 24, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Venturing out on his ride, Bradley found himself having a blast! There were bike riders ranging from your average bicycle rider to the ones some refer to as the ‘Lance Armstrong want to be’s’. According to his gauges, the bike averaged 18-20 mph with little or no peddling. With a little more effort he was reaching speeds close to 30 mph."
Showing a sense of humor with his entrepreneurial nature, Bradley said, "What got my wheels turning to get into business (pun intended), was when I caught up with, and then started passing some fairly serious and seasoned road bikers, several with obviously expensive hi-tech bikes." As he made his way around them and started passing, a few of them did not like the idea of an overweight guy like himself on a comfort bike, passing their group. The Sprint was on.” Bradley told us, “Believe me, when the traffic light was in view, it was a welcome sight. I finished about fifth or sixth, and the others caught up moments later." He said he was huffing and puffing but then, so were they.”
Being not only accepted but finding these seasoned riders were intrigued, he concluded, "The exciting thing was a couple of the riders asked where they could get one and how much. One stating it would be perfect for his wife and the kids, as they could never keep up with him on his rides. The fact that no snide remarks were made was a positive indication to me that these bikes may be well received by the public. And he has found that was an understatement.
"People are hungry for an alternative solution to high transportation costs, and reducing their Carbon Footprint on the world. The Electric bikes address both issues." Bradley focuses on keeping all prices down in the name of doing his part. His overhead is low with a small showroom for new and used electric bikes, and even more savings at the website with drop shipping to your door, and bonuses for multiple purchases. There is even a Rebate on New Bikes in the store, with layaway available.
