TrendMakers Show with host Ron Dresner talks with Bloomfield Bicycle & Repair Shop owner Mike Wolf about the growing popularity of electric bicycles.  Bloomfield Bike, located in Bloomfield, Connecticut, offers the region's largest selection of electric bicycles including ebikes from Prodeco, EZ Pedaler & Legacy. With skyrocketing gasonline prices, Bloomfield Bike has become New England's favorite destination to checkout these new hi-tech electric bicycles.  Electric Bikes can travel upto a distance of 40 miles and at speeds of upto 20 miles per hour. Mike Wolf from Bloomfield Bike talks about the details and ease of use with electric bikes.
“Purchasing a bicycle is one of the ways Americans have been reacting to increasing fuel prices. During these days of $4 to $5 a gallon for gasoline, the pennies it takes to charge a bike are saving our customers hundreds of dollars each month,” explained Mike Wolf, co-owner, Bloomfield Bicycle & Repair Shop. “With the emergence of newer technology, these new eBikes are becoming very popular. Electric bikes are inexpensive to operate, friendly for our environment, need no gasoline, easy to park and can go around or through traffic jams. There are about 119 million eBikes in service today worldwide. We have people from all points in Connecticut, New York and New England visiting our shop to preview our eBikes.”
An electric hybrid bicycle combines the rider’s pedaling with a battery-powered motor. It lets the rider get their work out and yet when faced with riding up a steep strenuous hill, it’s what helps the rider move faster and more easily than a regular bike. They also can reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour and do not require any legal registration, license or insurance.
