I set up testing on a local level
Encinitas, CA (PRWEB) December 19, 2008
The concept of "going green" is something that's been highly touted in recent years, yet the idea of the electric bike (or e-bike) has been around since the late 1800s, but has seen its popularity grow in highly populated areas like Japan and Europe. Now as bicycles are becoming more prevalent in American cities, the e-bike is also hitting big stateside.
Enter Paul Rosenbaum and his website http://www.ElectricBikesScooters.com.
Rosenbaum purchased an electric bike seven years ago and has often fielded questions about what he was riding and where one could be found. Finally, he decided to build his business around it.
"These bikes are great for exercise and they're easier to ride," said Rosenbaum. "Why get in an SUV to drive to the grocery store that could be five blocks away? Just ride a bike."
Rosenbaum launched his site in March 2008 and it has since become one of the most popular online destinations for people who are seeking their own electric bikes and scooters. For people who are in the San Diego-area, Rosenbaum also goes the extra mile, or at least he lets them go the extra mile by his "Test Ride" program.
"I set up testing on a local level," he explained. "I also ship around the United States and Canada, so someone in Burlington, Ontario can order a bike from me and receive it in a timely fashion."
As the end of the calendar year looms, Rosenbaum is looking forward to the new line of 2009 bikes and scooters he will be carrying. "There are quite a few improvements on some of the bike which includes a lithium battery and an increased speed," Rosenbaum said.
Having just added the 2009 line, Rosenbaum also looks to the new informational blog he's set up with http://www.ElectricBicycleBlog.com.
The blog offers up some of the e-bikes and scooters' environmentally friendly facts, as well as some other helpful tips about maintenance and general information.
Though e-bikes may not fully replace the automobile (that's what hybrids are for), they are sound investments for people who want to go on a nice ride without overexerting themselves or to be a little bit nicer to the planet.
