About Shoot the Bull
Cycling is undergoing something of a revolution because of the growth of electric bicycles. Electric bikes or E-bikes are the fastest growing segment of the bicycle industry.
Persistence Market Research finds electric bicycles are the fasted growing segment and it is expected that market will exhibit an even healthier growth in upcoming years. Shoot the Bull is the place in the valley where one can go to try out the most functional and fun electric bikes on the market.
My interest in Electric bicycles goes back to 2006 When I acquired a EV Global e-bike created by product visionary Lee Iacocca. The bike was heavy and the led acid battery was of limited range but it made fast work of hills and riding against the wind. At 56 with by-pass surgery the creation of some power assistance made bicycling for me fun again. For those who might think of an electric bike as cheating, the thing to remember is that an electric-assist bike is, first and foremost, a pedal-powered bicycle with an electric-assist motor for the rider when more power is required. Consider that not everyone has the energy and stamina to ride a pedal only bike in a competitive leanforward riding position. The creation of some power assistance to overcome hills and winds has made it possible for many people who would not likely ride, let alone purchase, another bicycle in their lifetime enjoy the pleasure of riding again.
In 2010 while on vacation in San Diego with our Giant electric bicycles my wife and I had the opportunity to try out a Pedego electric bike. This e-bike had 500 watts of power twice the power of my 250 watt Giant. I was so impressed with the performance of the Pedego I purchased my first Pedego and opened a Pedego dealership in Phoenix in 2011.
Electric bikes are the next step in the evolution of the bicycle. If the electric-assist bicycle boom that is sweeping Europe moves to the U.S., e-bikes will become the newest and most economical mode of power-assisted transportation.
A bicycle is as an efficient mean of transportation but people are often scared off by hills and long distance peddling, electric bicycles solves this problem. If you are interested in riding a Pedego electric bike and are in the Phoenix area stop in for a test ride.
Pedego is one of the world’s most renowned electric bicycles, it has built its reputation by creating the coolest electric bicycles outfitted with the latest in electric bike technology.
