Welcome to the Electric Bicycle Outlet (EBO), one of San Francisco's oldest purely electric bicycle stores. Our name can be a little misleading as we started out as an outlet in a garage in 2002. In 2006 we obtained a retail storefront and since 2008 we only sell premium Brand Name Electric Bicycles from todays best manufactures, such as Hebb, Yuba, Pedego, Ultramotor/Hero, Volton and Stealth just to name a few. We also offer a limited range of Kits from ECO Speed, Biruni Motors and Cyclone, but we do not modify regular bikes with motors and are sold as kits only.
Here is how it works: The shopper can compare various brands and styles of bikes side by side and upon signing a waiver and wearing a helmet, can take the bike on the 2.5 mile test ride course that takes about 10 minutes and has a mixture of flats, small hill and large hills. Then if he/she wants to try another bike over the same course they are welcome to do so, provided they stick to the course and time limits. If he/she wants to buy a bike, then we can order a new bike from the maker (2-7 days if in stock) or they can buy that demo bike or other inventory on hand. If that is still not enough time to evaluate the bike then he/she can rent the bike for 24 hours to try on their home turf or on a specifc hill or commute. If they decide to purchase then 1/2 of the rental fee will be applied to the purchase price. (restrictions apply) Financing provided by UGA. Call for details.
Weekends are the best days to test ride as all the demo bikes are parked on the street and there is less street traffic and congestion. Free street parking on Sundays.
SERVICE DEPARTMENT: We service every bike we sell and in some cases we have been specifically trained by the manufacturer to work on their electric bicycles, batteries, controllers, etc. Shop rates are $80 hour for "supported" brands and $100 hour for non-supported ebikes or custom riggs. Most bikes come with a manufacturer warranty of 1-3 years depending on the maker. The brands we sell have been specifically selected for their outstanding dealer service records and in most cases your bike can be back up and running in no time.
