Be wary of too good to be true deals on crowd funded projects as we have seen many of these companies go out of business quickly and the customer is left with a bike they cannot source parts for after the first year.
If you're considering a larger internet direct purchase (such as Juiced, Rad, Blix, or Ariel), consider giving us a chance to source a comparable bike for you. Many bikes will boast powerful motors and great deals, but have lower quality components on things that matter in the long run.
Many of these companies designs are just re-branded from Chinese factories, and we can source similar (if not downright identical) bikes at very similar prices.
Some Harsh Realities of buying from an Internet Direct Company
Most of these companies will charge you 20% of the purchase price to cancel your order, even if it hasn't shipped!
IF you dare try and return a bike that you've literally just opened and are not happy with, good luck. minimum 20% stocking fee plus $175 shipping, and they will not accept any bike that is not in it's original, sealed packaging.
Customer pays to ship both ways for warranty exchanges. So if you get a bike with a problem covered under warranty, they will still charge you around $350 to fix that issue..
What happens at our store? Try the bike before you make this decision, make sure you're happy with it, and enjoy 3 months of free labor for anything that could go wrong (besides Evel Knievel style stunting, no one warranties that!).
We have spent countless hours researching, riding, testing, and working on bikes from each brand we carry, so if we have it on our sales floor, you can be pretty darn sure we're proud to carry it.
