Pedego Electric Bikes Store Rolls Into Triangle, North Carolina
Pedego Triangle brings three kinds of fun: hills, headwinds and distances
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Jan. 24, 2018 — A new Pedego® Electric Bikes store is now open in the Triangle area of North Carolina. Owned by Don Tuttle, Pedego Triangle offers sales of Pedego electric bikes as well as rentals, tours and service. Pedego Triangle is the first and only store in North Carolina and is the 115th Pedego store worldwide.
A former healthcare executive, Tuttle is enthusiastic about the health benefits of electric cycling, which include getting fit and losing weight, boosting immunity, lowering stress and, most of all, enhancing the rider’s mood. Electric bikes are also ideal for people with health challenges, such as bad knees or backs, enabling them to gain the health and fitness benefits plus the joy of riding again.
“With electric bikes, riders can go longer, farther and faster than on traditional bicycles, giving them all of the benefits of traditional cycling with the bonus of being able to power up hills and charge through headwinds,” Don Tuttle said.
Tuttle discovered the power of Pedego bikes while living and working in California. When he moved home to North Carolina, he decided to share the joys of Pedego with his community in his second career as a Pedego store owner.
Pedego Triangle is near numerous scenic trails that feature a country setting with wildlife, wetlands and nature trails. Pedego riders may also choose tour routes that wind through the campuses of three major universities.
The store sells all 12 models of Pedego’s popular electric bikes. Pedego bikes have 500-watt hub motors that help riders cruise distances of 20 to 60 miles without getting tired and sweaty. The twist-and-go throttle gives riders instant manual control over their speeds while Pedal Assist can automatically add power to their pedaling.
Riders love Pedego’s California-style cruisers, including the Pedego Platinum Interceptor, a fully loaded cruiser bike with a 48-volt battery that propels riders with extra power; the Pedego Interceptor, which boasts the same powerful 48-volt battery; and Pedego’s Comfort Cruiser, which is powered by a 36-volt battery for gentle help with hills.
Pedego’s new City Commuter Mid-Drive edition, City Commuter Black Edition and standard City Commuter provide additional choices for more riding styles. Also available are the sturdy Stretch cargo bike; the Trail Tracker fat-tire bike for riding on sand, gravel and snow; the Ridge Rider electric mountain bike; and the Latch, an ingenious folding bike, designed for portability and convenience. Other models include the electric tandem bike for two and the accessible Pedego Boomerang with an ultra-low step-thru frame. Pedego also offers the Airstream model for camping devotees. Free test rides are available at the store.
“Pedego Triangle store owner Don Tuttle loves helping people discover the fun of electric bikes,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “Pedego Triangle is bringing excitement to the entire region. They’re ready to roll!”
