Lauderdale Cyclery, a Fort Lauderdale bike shop, now offers Trek's latest electric bikes.
Online PR News – 14-November-2016 – Fort Lauderdale, FL – Lauderdale Cyclery, a Fort Lauderdale (Broward County, South Florida) bicycle retailer, now stocks Trek's electric bikes. Trek's latest e-bikes have won praises from owners and the trade press for their durability, ease of use, and safety.
These Trek e-bikes operate and ride like ordinary bicycles, except that the cyclist can choose from three levels of boost or no boost at all. The electric motor works only when the cyclist is pedaling. The effect is that the cyclist seems to be stronger than he or she would normally be. There is no throttle; the cyclist simply chooses how much boost is desired, and pedals normally. The bike does the rest. The feeling is magical: suddenly you feel stronger, hills are less exhausting, and every ride becomes fun.
Many cyclists use the electric assist only when climbing hills or pedaling into headwinds. Others use the assist to keep up with a stronger cycling friend. Some Trek e-bike cyclists purposely extend their rides, just because they enjoy riding so much.
"We allow shoppers to try our e-bikes", explains Gary Ordelheide, owner of Lauderdale Cyclery. "One test ride makes them believers. An electric bike turns difficult bike rides into pleasant adventures. People of all ages love them -- especially our older customers."
"Some cyclists commute to work on their e-bikes", Ordelheide continues. "They use lots of assist on their way in to work, which means less sweating. They arrive at work fresh as a daisy. Then at day's end they can either use electric assist or turn it off for a good workout on their way home. An electric bike gives you flexibility."
