What Customers Are Saying
But when our customers say it – it’s proof!
MY KNEE Problems are gone.....
I am 55 years old and thought I would never ride a bike again. I have been told I need a knee replacement and I have been told I have Arthritis but no Doctor told me to get an electric bike and ride it everyday which is what I did and the only time my knee gives me problems anymore is when I go on vacation and don’t get to ride. As soon as I got home and started riding the pain and the clicking in my knee went away. I learned that when we don’t exercise our knees then we lose the muscles that support them. What is upsetting is that Doctors tell people they need knee replacements when really all they need is to have fun again on a Pedego! It does not matter which one you get because you will love anyone you get!
What a Difference
Twenty years ago my wife and I bought the first generation (not Pedago) electic bikes. They were ok but not great in regards to charge or reliability.
Last year at the ages of 70 and 65 we bought two Pedago Bikes from the McDowell Mountain store. I can say the knowlegable staff and the bikes themselves are a perfect 10 as far as reliabilty,handling and the amazing distances we can go on a charge. Shortly after our purchase I had a minor problem and called the store for advice and again we were blown away…within two hours they came to our home and made the adjustment on the spot…amazing! After purchase service has been first class, the bikes are incredible and would recommend the Bike and Pedago McDowell Mountain to all that are considering a wonderfull way to spend your time enjoying Arizona with the wind in your face.
The bike is high end quality all the way, everything works extra nice, the battery pack lasts an incredible long time before needing a charge, we have the 15 amp 48 volt, worth the extra money, as I have two other Ebike kits I put together and the battery packs run out much quicker, we have had it a couple years and zero problems.
BEST Customer Service/Support I have ever experienced, bar none!!
I Love my Interceptor and wanted to find some folks to ride with and discover new places to ride. I signed up for a cancer charity ride and three days before the event my twist shifter broke. I really wanted to make this ride as I had gotten sponsors to donate money as I was riding in honor of a friend who had lost their battle with cancer. I called Pedego and they overnited the parts to Pedego Blue Ridge in Georgia. Since the bike could not be fixed in time the good folks at Pedego Blue Ridge put me on a 24″ Interceptor just like mine for the upcoming ride. All went great on “The Silver Comet Trail” ride put on by Cycliad. I met some of the pro riders, raised alot of money and handed out tons of pedego info and cards as everyone wanted to try out my bike.
My 2nd Pedego Interceptor
I just purchased my 2nd Pedego. Bought a 26″ Interceptor in 2012. It has always been too big for me. Back in the day Pedego didn’t make a 24″ Interceptor. Decided to sell old bike and Purchased 24″ Interceptor and just love it. The new technology alone was worth the change. Love the pedal assist and the size is perfect for me. Thank you Pedego for all the fun.
Over 20,000 miles on my Pedego
As a long time cycling enthusiast from Wisconsin, I transplanted to sunny Tucson, Arizona.
I still tried to enjoy cycling, but with old injuries of broken bones, arthritis and at the age of 50, it became more like work.
I began a search for alternative powered bicycles and in July of 2012, I owned my first Pedego Interceptor.
Whether I’m using it for my 30 mile round trip commute or a lazy Saturday afternoon ride to the local watering hole, my Pedego has been there as a great alternative.
As an owner now for over four years and nearly 20,000 miles, I’ve found the bike not only enjoyable to ride with the variable pedal assist levels, but easy to maintain, much like a standard bicycle I was most familiar with.
Pedego has been there every step of the way with great technical support, customer satisfaction or with my “Do it yourself” part replacement requests.
A New Life!
I am 74 years old and since I got my PEDEGO 4 years ago it has re-invigorated my life. I have lost weight, taken away my knee pain and provided me with multiple new adventures. I have done the RAGBRAI ride across Iowa, ridden fron Saint Paul to Canada and in total I have ridden over 9000 miles. It has clearly given me new life!
Outstanding bike - I recommend it without reservation!
I bought a Pedego Step-Thru Interceptor Model which I’ve had for about 2 months now. It is truly outstanding and I’d like to list some specifics that I’ve found:
1. Weight and bulk – this bike is more or less equivalent to driving a GMC Yukon. It lacks the agility of a light mountain bike, but is quite stable and comfortable to ride. There is a learning curve re controlling it but in a week, the owner will master it and be quite confident and proficient.
2. Comments on the electric motor assist (I find this to be invaluable for the following reasons):
a. Stamina enhancer – I am 73 and, although I’m in pretty good shape physically, I don’t have the sheer stamina that I used to; it is very nice when I’ve gone a long distance, i.e., 15-20 miles without assist, to know that I have the electric assist in reserve for the return trip, especially the twist throttle that allows me to ride without pedaling.
b. Acceleration: due to the bike’s weight and bulk, it is sometimes difficult to get going from a stop, especially on an incline – in these situations, I find that the motor will give a much appreciated boost to get me up to speed when it would be very difficult without the assist.
c. Motor can keep you out of trouble in “bunch-up” situations: I do most of my riding on a bike path on Cape Cod – in the summer, it is very congested and people have a habit of riding in packs, occupying most of width of the bike path, which can be very harrowing if you encounter them. In these situations, I simply engage the motor, sound the bell and glide past most of them in less than a minute, accompanied by looks of amazement and envy on their part.
d. Ease of top speed adjustment: I found that my insurance carrier would not issue me liability insurance for the e-bike unless its top speed was 15 mph. As shipped from the factory, it has a nominal top speed of 20 mph. I found, when I called the factory, that the folks there were extremely helpful and told me how to access a potentiometer in the rear of the bike (extremely easy to do) and adjust its speed by turning a screw on the potentiometer.
This was extremely important to me because I felt that the danger of liability if I happened to injure someone was imply too great to act as a self-insurer! This alone makes the e-bike the one of choice as far as I’m concerned.
e. Battery charge longevity: I’ve never driven 30 miles on battery alone, but after 3-5 miles of assist, I’ve found that the charge still registers “full.” I think the Lithium ion battery is superb and am extremely happy with its capacity (I have the 48 ampere battery, which is standard with the Interceptor).
As far as I’m concerned, the Pedigo is the best on the market and fairly priced. Their dealer network is expanding and I am confident that once the public “catches on” that we will see many more of them.
Love our Pedego's
We purchased our Interceptor’s among ago. We looked and test rode all models of e-bikes for over a month before test riding a pedego. We rode the Pedego’s and knew in the first 10 minutes these were the bikes we would buy. We have already ridden over 300 miles and are now planning trips where we can take our new bikes. We have been to San Barbara, San Diego, Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Huntington Beach, Carlsbad and Oceanside with our bikes. We love the staff at Pedego in Huntington Beach and Carlsbad. Always willing to help beyond the sale. HIGHLY RECOMMEND YOU CONSIDER A PEDEGO.
She loves her orange Interceptor.
My wife’s new Interceptor was delivered last Wednesday and I went right to work getting it ready to ride, which amounted mostly to carefully unpacking the hardware. I was amazed at how well the bike was packaged and protected. And, the assembly was as basic as it could possibly be. So far,….everything was “Cruzin” along just fine.
And it gets better.
Today, Sunday, August 17, 2014, we loaded our bikes onto the rack and headed for the Lake Country bike trail, located in Waukesha County, WI. This is the trail that my wife has not done in over a year because she no longer wants to deal with the long steep hills. Today she passed me up like a dirty shirt on those dreaded hills! And, she was smiling all the way to the top.
This made my day, and hers.
The Pedego Interceptor is the perfect choice for her. Plenty of power, quiet, sturdy, amazingly comfortable, easy to operate and loads of fun.
Next week we’ll be in Peninsula State Park (WI) where there are even more hills and lots of great trails.
I cringe to think I almost bought a different, inferior product, from a competing manufacturer. I rode the other product, so I can say with absolute certainty that she would never have been satisfied with their bike. But she loves her orange Interceptor.
One of the first Carmel, Indiana buyers
I have been biking for years and I want to encourage people in Indiana to visit Pedego Electric Bikes in Carmel. The owner, Josh, is terrific to work with, he has excellent products and he goes out of his way to be sure you are satisfied. We weren’t even in the market for electric bikes but we stopped in to check out the products. My wife and I were blown away with the fun and ended up buying two interceptors on the same day. We spent the next day on the Monon trail and had a fantastic day of biking. By the way, we are not being compensated for this review…it was just that good an experience.
We just purchased two bikes, a step thru and an Interceptor, that are much more than advertised. Much better then the site implies. We are very very pleased.
Only problem is the weather.
If you are considering one and are a man or just heavy get the Interceptor. The extra voltage makes a difference on long hills. I can use my wife’s just fine but I can accelerate more up a steep hill with the Interceptor.
Great so far
Just got my Interceptor on Friday. I’ve taken it for two 20 miles rides so far. The bike works great just like the reviews. I did extensive research before purchasing. I like that it mostly looks like a regular bike. I was able to make both 20 mile rides with moderate hills without draining the battery. I pedaled quite a bit but the boost was great help on hills. I could easily stay with the road bikes when I wanted to.
We bought two of the Interceptors about 6 months ago and could not be happier
We bought two of the Interceptors about 6 months ago and could not be happier. The wife loves the step through. A good example is the new trail out of Moab Utah. Goes up from Moab past Arches park to Canyonlands park. Many people were dropping bikes off in Canyonlands and riding down hill…not us…started in Moab and went up hill, then coasted back down. Beautiful bike only bridge across river. You see so much more from a bike.. Don’t wait get yours today!
You Won't Believe This--But It's True
My wife and I got two of the Interceptor Bikes and at 58 YOA I want to let you know they are a great investment in your health and the best bikes on the market. I’m 6’2″ 280 lbs and my Interceptor makes me feel like I’m 16 again. I had a problem with my feet and after a week of pedaling the problem was gone. I have been in law enforcement for 27 years and think it would be a great tool for our officers who need to get into tight spaces and chase people who break the law. A tiered Cop can’t catch anyone!! Thanks Pedego your not a five your a TEN!!!
Great bikes and customer service.
I purchased 2 Pedago ebikes in a two week period. Was so impressed with the Classic Cruiser, I came back and bought an Interceptor.
First, the bikes: Very well designed and made. High Quality, great detail, 5 minute final assembly. Very good performance (I’m used to 1000 Watt ebikes and was anticipating less performance, however I was pleasantly surprised). Great value- these are by far the best value
for the price in the ebike world.
Customer service-Great. Received a phone call from owner Terry within hours of placing my online order to set up delivery to my front door in 2 days. I called back to order the Interceptor and spoke with co-owner Don, who answered a couple of tech questions I had. Got the same quick and easy delivery.
I am very impressed with both the product and the company and would highly recommend both. (Note: I also own several other competing ebikes from EMS E+,Wavecrest Tidalforce, etc. so I am comparing the Pedago to some other fine products.)
Ruby and Julie at Pedego Bikes, Qualicum Beach, BC have been excellent in sales and service. I’ve only had my bike (Interceptor) for two weeks and have done over 300 kms. The small town where I live is hilly and not ‘traditional bike’ friendly. I am now out most days discovering my community. The local stores are about 8 kms. away – most trips I now make by bike – with a basket on front and panniers on the back, I can carry quite a bit. I get just as much exercise because I’m always pedalling but I certainly notice I am saving my knees from the stress and strain that a lot of biking can subject them to. By using both the manual gears and the pedal assist, I’m always in my comfort zone. I’m close to 70 years and the euphoria of the open road on a bike will be with me for a long time, I’m thinking. No regrets with this purchase for sure! Also, another plug for Julie and Ruby – I’m really impressed with your store, your spirit and your ‘happy customer’ philosophy.
Fantastic Bike - I Love It!!
I bought my Pedego Interceptor two months ago and have used it to commute to work every day (a 24 mile round trip) – not to mention riding out for fun or errands on weekends. The bike is fantastic, a sturdy build, lots of power, great looking. People constantly want to stop me and talk about it. Even people in cars driving alongside me. I can’t recommend this bicycle enough!!
Greatest Electric Bike I have had.
I have a Pedego Interceptor. This is my second Electric Bike. The first one brand “X”, I had for about 18 months and I sold it with 400 miles on it. Bought this Pedego 5/26/2011 and today I have recorded 2242.35 Miles on it. The biggest factor for me is they stand 100 behind their product. In fact I have enjoyed it so much, that two friends purchased the same model and we all love them. I’m retire and use it also for trips to the store. Great Bike with Great People standing behind the product.
Great Experience with Pedego
My wife and I, in our late 50’s/early60’s, purchased our bikes a bit over 1 year ago. I have a white Interceptor and my wife a red step-through cruiser. The product is terrific and amazingly fun to ride. I ride every weekend and have taken 20-30 mile cruises without getting close to needing a re-charge. I always pedal but never does my rear-end need to leave the seat. I cannot go anyway without people stopping to ask me questions about my cool looking bike. My one concern immediately upon receiving my bike last year was the kick-stand. Unlike the heavy duty and robust parts of the bike, the kickstand, from the beginning, seemed to be somewhat flimsy. Sure enough it finally broke down a few weeks ago. I wasn’t too upset as it didn’t seem like it would be expensive or difficult to replace. On a lark, I decided to contact Pedego to see if they could recommend a replacement for purchase. On a Sunday, Don quickly e-mailed back that they are sending a replacement at no charge and “sorry for the problems”. Wow! Talk about exceeding expectations! My bikes are out of warranty and they still stand behind the components. Pedego (and Don) were awesome and I would definately recommend their products and company.
We only have 4 pedego's for our personal use that's all.
We are the very proud owners of 4 Pedego’s all 48 volt batteries.
I have 2 interceptors, 1 brand new interceptor with mag wheels, absolutely awesome, amazing bike. My wife has an interceptor and a brand new ridge rider. Almost 4 years ago we bought our first his and her interceptor bikes after doing a lot of research and hands down I was convinced that Pedego was the way to go.
Almost every weekend you will find me or us at a campground up or down the coastline in So. Cal. in my RV, class A diesel pusher with a custom built carrier, rear hitch mounted for our Pedego’s. Weather it’s exercise, going to the market, going to the fairgrounds, riding the bike trails, one thing for sure is our bikes always get us wherever we want to go and parking is never a problem imagine that!!
Pedego’s customer service and my dealership experiences have always been awesome.
Thank you Pedego for being such a great company and proving happy fun to us and many others. I always brag how life is not complete unless you own a Pedego.
Ferrari of Electric Bikes
I have been on two wheels for some 60 years either a bicycle or motorcycle. When I first got my Pedego Interceptor I was thrilled.
While I was in Europe I tried some European bikes that were nice but nothing like my new Interceptor.
You can ride it like a regular bike because it is lighter and more responsive also lower. This Pedego bike is easy to pedal with gears and no motor. You can also ride it with no hands because it is so responsive. I call my new interceptor a Ferrari of electric bikes.
Just want to let you know how much I love the bike, thanks.
Its one of the best purchases I've ever made!
I bought the Interceptor, and this bike is amazing! I ride it everywhere. For the most part I can ride it all day long all around Huntington and Newport Beach and still have battery left for more.
When looking at an Electric Bike there are all kinds of reasons to get one. I’ve used it for work so it’s become a complete tax write off for my business. I’ve used it for pleasure and I’ve used to for advertisement and marketing so it helped generate leads and revenue for my business how cool is that?
Its one of the best purchases I’ve ever made!
If your in the market for an electric bike, before you do anything at all, swing by and see the guys at the HB Pedego Location and I’m sure you will be more then pleased with their awesome customer service, education and performance. Plus, these guys are two of the best Pedego mechanics they have in the entire organization.
Be sure to call them and ask for a fun free test ride, that’s all it will take to get you hooked on the Pedego Electric Bike.
Fun, Fast and Reliable
I have been riding my black Pedego interceptor for the past three years. I have over 10,000 miles and have had the best experience with it. I commute to work, take the bike on joy rides and tow my surfboard to the beach. I love my bike so much, that I decided it was time for an uograde. So I just got a new fire engine red Pedego Interceptor at Electric Bikes LA in El Segundo. The bike has the bigger battery, the streamlined motor, pedal assist wirh an active throttle and rides great! I can’t wait to start my next 10000 miles.!
Thanks so much to the Pedego team for making my life better! Hello fun . . .
Great biking experience!
I just got my interceptor a week ago. I’ve been riding in some cool temperatures but I’m still having fun. I’ve just got 160 km on it (100 miles). I’m surprized at the quality of the bike and am impressed by the battery. I have been pulling a kid cart some of the time. Works great. It’s also a treat to hit the headwinds and the hills.
I had a knee injury last year. This bike is really helping to supplement my physiotherapy. It’s also a treat to have a cruiser as I no longer want to put too much pressure on my shoulders
I can’t say enough good things about it. I’m particularly pleased by Bike Universe who supplied the bike. Thanks Ted, Neil, Chelsey and Teale. Thanks for steering me away from motor add one to this great bike.
P.S. I went back and bought one for my daughter too.
I see lots and lots of bike rides in my future!
My first ride on the Interceptor!
We are so happy with the Interceptors. Rode about 16 miles this afternoon up and down the hills here in north Georgia. It is everything I dreamed of! I want to still “ride the bike” for exercise and yet not kill myself on the hills. We pretty much peddled for the most part using pedal assist when needed! I literally laughed out loud as I climbed some of the hills I’ve struggled on this past few years!!!
I was cautious coming down a couple of the bigger hills at first, not knowing how it would handle, but was very pleasantly surprised on some other hills. On one I hit over 32 mph and it was just as smooth and straight as could be!
The best part was the return back home. We have about 3/4 mile of uphill curvy road on loose gravel. I’ve had to push many a bike up this road, but no problems with the Interceptor! I see lots and lots of bike rides in my future!
Hello Fun (smile emoticon)
Best Purchase in a long time!!!!!
I spent the last few “years” researching electric bikes. Spent a lot of time on the web, Amazon and other sites reading reviews and doing my research. Finally when I came across the Pedego brand I knew I found my bike. I purchased a Brushed Aluminum 26″ Interceptor with the 48V 15A battery. My bike arrived in about 7 business days. It was very simple to assemble. Handle bars and peddles were installed within 15 minutes. The battery was fully charged and the “how to use manual” was quick and simple to read.
The bike changed the way I think about riding. I am in good shape and enjoy riding a regular bike but the Pedego changes everything. Hills are not even thought of anymore. The bike is super comfortable and well made. Riding in “throttle only mode” gives you the feel of riding a scooter or motor bike. The range with my 48V 15A battery has not been pushed to the limits but I love the power and expected range.
I have to say that I am truly satisfied with my purchase and I am considering a City Commuter so that my son, wife or daughter can ride with me.
Riding a Pedego is just plain fun!
Excellent customer service - Awesome Product
My husband and I purchased two Interceptors 3 ½ years ago. We could not be happier with these bikes. We live in the foothills of Southern California and these PEDEGO bikes instantaneously makes everything flat. No more “huffing and puffing” up those hills. We are able to take them on our bike rack which gives us the flexibility and adventures we were looking for, whether it is the beach, the wine country or city sightseeing. I’d like to give a “shout out” to Nick at their Irvine Facility. We needed a few adjustments to both bikes and he provided us with OUTSTANDING service. PEDEGO a company who stand behind their products, they have ‘live’ technical support and a commitment to excellence. You can buy with confidence, something that is hard to find in today’s market. Thanks again to PEDEGO for a fantastic product.
Even Webster, our dachshund, loves his pedego bike. So much fun!
My husband and I both of pedego bikes. We love them and don’t think we have had a good ride unless we go about 60 Kms. All we have to say to our dog is, do you want to go for a bike ride and he runs to the garage to get put into his carrier. If we bike without him, he howls the whole time we are gone!
just do it now!
I waited for three years saving and dreaming for this bike. I never buy anything on credit but I wish I had bought this bike on credit so that I could have enjoyed it years earlier. Go ahead and buy it. You can test drive the models on a vacation and have it shipped right to yourself. I am not mechanically inclined but the assembly was easy. JUST DO IT. You won’t regret it.
Happily Ever After
My Pedago is perfect for use in my neighborhood. As a retired educator, I was always trying to keep up with others who rode faster and longer. Now I can.
I have ridden over 500 miles and am looking forward to many more.
Pedago is a first class operation. Our salesman was knowledgeable, helpful and ready to assist with every aspect. I am looking forward to biking season to put on many more miles.
Absolutely love my bike
I love to ride my bike, for one I can now join my friends who go longer distance so I am able to feel included and not be left out. Plus the exercise and feeling I get when I am finished riding gives me such a high. I feel incredible after a ride. I highly recommend these bikes, they are not cheater bikes and once you give one a try you will realize just how awesome they are.
About 5 years ago I had back surgery which did not go as well as I had hoped for. I have trouble getting on and riding a bicycle. I recently bought a 24 inch pedego interceptor. I now can ride my bike for a long time with no problems. I recently rode 23 miles with out any problems. These bikes are amazing and lots of fun. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a great form of exercise that is actually fun
Uphill? No Problem!
Yep, going uphill doesn’t phase me anymore. Also longer distances are easily obtainable. Since Pete (his Pedego is the Commuter) and I have gotten our Pedegos we now plan our vacation trailer trips with biking trails in mind. Gives us something to look for in our retirement wanderings. We will soon be moving into a retirement community and I’m even considering getting the Pedego trike instead of a golf cart! So nice to be over 70 and still able to keep up and enjoy the outdoors. This something I’ve been wanting for a long time and so glad it is now available! Thank You Pedego!
My wife and I both bought Pedego’s and have enjoyed hundreds of worry free miles. We have an RV and take them with us everywhere. We use them for exercise, sightseeing, and the pure enjoyment of just getting outside and ride. We’ve been to several states and have ridden some great trails. We tell everyone that stops and asks us about how awesome they are. It’s the best purchase decision we’ve made just for us. Hello Fun
Best Ride EVER
I have owned an risen my Pedego Interceptor for 1-1/2 years now with over 1400 miles. I became interested in an e bike after using public transportation for some time and noticing college students zipping by on just regular pedal bikes. I saw an ad from a Pedego dealer one was soon zipping the six miles to work in twenty minutes effortlessly! My normal commute was a very roundabout 1-1/2 hours each way vs the leasurely sight filled route where I always park in front! I am a 63 year old non-rider who would now not take my Pedego anywhere.
I'm more active with my Pedego!
With my Pedego Interceptor I am not afraid to try longer and more hilly trips. It has opened up a whole new range of rides for me! My husband and I now do biking vacations, soemthign we never would have considered before. I LOVE MY PEDEGO!
Also, we have the BEST Pedego support from Sue & Kenny at Pedego, Redondo Beach, CA!! They’re the best!
As a 60-something woman who has been riding bikes for 15 years, I can say that my new Pedego Interceptor is a game-changer! I no longer have to worry about keeping up with my husband on the crazy rides he plans for us…I can go ANYWHERE! I can chose to ride with no motor assist on comfortable trails, or add the pedal assist when I’m tired, riding up a long hill, or riding into the wind. And the throttle allows me to power through a dangerous intersection or up a very steep path. I am loving being empowered!!!
Together with my Family
As an active mother of 4 who always enjoyed biking with my family, it was devastating when failed ACL knee surgery left me unable to ride a bike. Everything changed when my husband found Pedego and surprised me for my birthday. I can now rejoin my family on the biking outings I love so much. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate what Pededo has meant to me.
Great to easily Ride Again
The Pedal Assist and Step Through has made it able for me to ride again after my Stroke suffered two years ago. I still can’t control most of my left side due to nerve issues, but being out and active has helped me not just physically, but my mental health being out enjoying the fresh air and outdoors.
We first rented pedego’s when our niece and nephew came to visit. We knew there was no way we could keep up with them peddling around Lake Michigan which’s is a gorgeous ride! We were hooked immediately! They were really working to keep us with us, which made us feel a lot younger than our retired selves . My husband has a bad lungs and I have arthritis. It made me feel like I had my freedom back! It’s like the first time you drive by yourself . Anyways, we have an rv, and use them instead of Towing a huge car behind us. It’s really great. My nephew,w
Hi lives in San Francisco would like to get one because of the hills there! We love our Pedego’s!!
Now I can ride with my husband
My husband and I retired recently. He is an avid road bike rider. He rides several hours each day when weather permits. I am not nearly as fit or dedicated as he is so I had missed out on the bike rides. Now my Pedego electric bike allows me to comfortably ride with him and be a part of his cycling routine. Living happily ever after with my Pedego!
My Daughter Made Me Do It

My daughter bought one first. She raved about it so I went with her to pick hers up after adding some mods. While waiting I was looking at all the different bikes and talking to the shop’s owner. He offered to rent me 1 and if I decided to buy, would use the rental fee as partial payment. We agreed and I had it with my daughter for just over an hour. I didn’t get it that day but we went back the next weekend and I rented another 1. We had such a good time, I went home with my own. Took the bike back the next week to have to pre agreed additions installed. After completion the shop even delivered the bike to my house free. I ride it often, peddle most of the time with the assist set on 3. The bike could use a little more torque but its still so fun, even for me (my other bike is a Harley). Bought mine for a great price at the Corona Del Mar store. Good people there.
Best purchase ever !
Some people have a misconception that the Pedego is a lazy way to ride a bike. Just the opposite. It had helped me be more active. When camping, I go places that I would not even try to go. Instead of driving we ride our bikes EVERYWHERE. I am 60 yrs old now and my Pedego gives me the freedom to go wherever I want. You are in control from needing no help peddling to major climbs with assistance. With anything new it takes practice getting to know how your bike works. The adventure is endless. Go to a dealer and try them out. They will assist in finding the right size and model for you. Pedego is the best do not waste your time buying an off brand. They have fantastic customer service which means a lot.
Fun to Life Change
I wanted an electric bike to commute to work about 4 miles away. Test riding Pedego was so much fun I did it twice once to think about it and the second time just because. Since purchasing my bike, I have lost about 20 pounds, sold my car, and have used the bike exclusively as my means of local transportation. It’s changed me, my day to day, and my carbon footprint!
When we go, we Pedego
When we travel to Minnesota or around our home state of North Dakota, we always take our Pedego E bikes with us.
I had my Pedego Interceptor for only 90 days before my wife wanted one of her own. She got the City Commuter which fits her perfectly. So now when we travel anywhere we take the bikes with us because we love the classiness power of Pedego bikes.
They are the Rolls-Royce of E bikes!
At 79 this bike has extended why Horizons at the time when they were beginning to shrink. I use it primarily doing field research on back roads dirt roads and trails. It has an amazing capability combination of smooth running, comfort, and the capability of a mountain bike. It is very well-made and beautiful in its dark metallic green. I love being outdoors again three to four times per week.
I have had many traditional bikes in the past that I would use on a sporadic basis when the weather was a perfect 10.I started to consider a bike that would offer a little assistance when the wind was blowing against me and the pedaling was twice as hard.I looked at many styles available online and in stores,which is how I ended up with Pedigo.I realized that they are not all the same.Body parts are heavier and welded nicely together.The brakes and shifter are smooth.The biggest difference I like was the integration of the battery to the bike.You can hardly tell there is a battery when you add a rear bag,plus the 48-15 battery power is amazing considering my 6ft 4 inch frame compared to what is available on less expensive bikes.I did not only shop price but I shopped quality which equals VALUE.It has changed my exercise ritual.Thank you Pedigo.
Improves Quality of Life
I have owned my Pedego Interceptor since 2014.
I ride two days per week with my biker buddies from home to the beach,breakfast and back. I live in North County coastal San Diego. Steep hills are a challenge and prior to purchasing the Pedego, I would have to walk my “”conventional”” bike up steep hills.
The Pedego allows a 70 year old to ride those steep hills, physically pedaling up the lesser hills and trail 90% of the time.
I currently have 5,350 miles on my Pedego Interceptor.
One of the most important reasons I chose Pedego is the local service nearby.
My dog loves our new bike!
I was first introduced to the Pedego Electric bikes by my Son and Daughter in law. We rented Pedegos from St. Petersburg Florida store for the day and I was hooked within the first mile. We had our two dogs with us, so Rick, the store manager, rigged two of our bikes with pull behind trailers for our dogs. The dogs adapted to the ride immediately.
As soon as I returned home,I researched electric bikes and decided that the Pedego was definitely the right bike for me. I purchased my bike the next month and have not regretted my decision. My dog Maggie and I ride practically every day and sometime ride for hours. I have yet to use more than half of my battery power and we take some pretty long rides. Since that day we rented the bikes, my Son and Daughter in law have both purchased bikes.They decided on the City Commuter Classic for him and the City Commuter step Thru for her. These bikes are Awesome!
Fun, Functional, and a good bike!
I use my Pedego to commute to work and I love it. It’s about 8.5 miles each way and it turns a slog through traffic into a fun ride through bike lanes and side roads that’s actually only an extra 5-7 mins compared to driving. Add in that it costs maybe a dollar every couple weeks to recharge and it’s a real win-win (one less car on the road, less pollution, more fun!). I’ve had the bike for about 7 months now and already put 1500 miles on it, and I’ve had no issues with it (other than running over a nail, but that’s not the bike’s fault!).
I customized the bike by replacing the seat and adding some side mirrors (for commuting safety). Both were standard parts and super easy to do. The ability to use either the pedals or the hand throttle is a great feature I didn’t appreciate at first.
All in all, it’s a great bike and I’d definitely recommend it to friends and family.
After my husband passed away my heart was filled with heavy sadness that was like an anchor to my soul. Then a couple of retired teachers posted a youtube video of riding their rented Pedego bikes. (I wish I could buy those two teachers each a Pedego because they continue to teach by posting their Pedego video for others to learn about Pedego bikes.) I didn’t think I could ride one until watching their live video. I thought it would be difficult to learn the handlebar controls, but after watching them it was easy-peasy riding the Demo. The Pedego Interceptor renewed the joy in my life and continues to bring joy-filled-smiles and changed my life for the better.
Thank you Pedego!
WHAT A WONDERFUL BIKE !!!
I can’t say enough about my PEDEGO. I’ve been at PEDEGO Interceptor guy for over eight years now. Can’t say enough about the wonderful features and solid construction this bike has. It’s all up to you as to how much exercise you want to do on it. The new computer system lets you get a great work with just a little help from the engine or if you’re feeling lazy that day it almost rides itself.
Also it’s extremely comfortable with its fat tires and very comfortabe leather seat. Love it.
Besides offering a exhilarating ride experience with great power, PEDEGO offers unsurpassed service. They are always available for questions, advice and service issues. I would recommended this bike to anyone who loves being outside and who wants to have fun. Would not own any other bike. !!!!
Our Pedego Interceptors
My wife and I have owned our (2) Pedego Interceptors bikes for 2 1/2 years. Quite frankly, we love our electric bikes and have ridden them over 1300 miles since we bought them. We never rode this many miles collectively in our lives prior to buying our Pedego’s. We have traveled with our bikes to many spots in California. We have also rented Pedego’s during our vacations in Europe. You must try one and we highly recommend buying one for yourself and loved one or friend. I researched the electric bike market for 6 months before buying our Pedego’s. Pedego is the #1 electric bike and been in business for many years. They stand behind their product and the local Pedego retailers are all amazing.
I treated myself when my husband got his bike. I have suffered with chronic neck pain and had given up riding my old bike because of it. Walking or running was out since I had foot surgery. I can’t imagine life with out it. We ride together and with friends. We take with us when we travel in rv. We also love the great service we get at Huntington Beach Pedego.
Gotta get a Pedego
this was a gift and I thought… I don’t need this, I have a bicycle. Well was I wrong. I can go more places, take longer rides and really enjoy life on my Pedego. My first ride was 10 miles!!!! I now run errand to Post office, grocery store etc as well as take leisurely rides to the beach and restaurants.
A absolutely LOVE my Pedego.
Freedom for adventure
I am in my late 50s and I have a few aches and pains from not knowing my limitations but enough about me. My ebike has got me off my chair and out on the road. I love the new scenery that the extra distance and easy ride back home gives me. My wife and I look forward to each morning when we make an excuse to ride by the ice cream store for some exercise on our new bikes. We went from riding the Harley to the Pedego and we love it. Hope for miles and miles of fun with our new toy.
When my wife and I decided to purchase electric bicycles we did a tremendous amount of research We knew when we bought Pedego’s we were buying a quality brand. After purchasing them however we were in for a bigger surprise. What we hadn’t realized was the family like culture that surrounded Pedigo. My wife and I have been to multiple Pedigo sponsored bike rides. Don, the CEO has been at everyone one we have attended and even recognized us. In today’s world that type of culture is very rare and it is nice to know that when you buy a Pedego you are not just buying a bicycle but are joining a family where you are valued.
We live in an area of Vancouver Island with a lot of really steep hills. There would be no way we could get outside and enjoy our spectacular scenery with a normal bicycle. Hence the Pedego. We love to go for jaunts to the local coffee shop near the ocean, and breathe the fresh sea air. It’s freedom to go where you want with minimal effort!
Love my electric bike
We take our eBikes camping with us and ride all over the parks. Hills are no problem, we see more of the area this way. One park we stayed at had a bicycle path that lead to the little tourist town. It was a lot fun taking the eBikes there. People are always asking us about them. I know we have helped sell these bikes from our adentures.
Love my electric bike
My husband and I each have an Interceptor. We bought ours to use while we are camping. They are a joy to ride. We are loving the bike trails and we get to see so much more now that we have them. Did I mention I am 64 and my husband is 63? We haven’t rode bikes since we were kids! Now we get to feel like kids again on our electric bikes! In just a few camping trips we rode over a hundred miles. Looking forward to many more trips and adventures on our Pedegos!
“I LOVE this bike! I had a regular bike but after 30 min I was done! My husband and I both have one and we go on all day bike trips. We get exercise that we weren’t
getting before. I take my bike out a few hrs at a time by myself almost everyday when weather permits It is a wonderful comfortable bike we even got my in laws to buy them “
Best Physical Therapy EVER!!!
I severely injured my leg in April 2017. When I was finally able to begin physical therapy on my leg I purchased a Pedego electric bike. I have been able to ride the bike as directed by my physician and therapist. It has helped immensely in my rehabilitation. It is a real joy to ride. I actually look forward to riding !
Fun as a senior
We bought our pedigo last summer. We had regular bikes but realized that some of the hills in our neighborhood were limiting where we could ride. In our 70’s, but not ready to hang up our bikes, we decided to go to electric bikes. Now we can handle all the hills and everyone in the neighborhood enjoys seeing us on our bikes and we are encouraging others that this is the way to go. Age is only a number. Keep pedaling!
We can ride again!
My wife and I are in our late 50’s and live in an area that is very hilly, so we had not ridden our bikes in years. I took a chance about two years ago and bought two Interceptors for my wife and I… And it’s the best purchase I have ever made! Many times we have commented that having these bikes is like being a kid again.
Not only do we go on regular rides in our neighborhood, we take these bikes everywhere! Some of our favorite trips:
1. Mammoth Lakes. There are bike paths everywhere. We pack a lunch and go all day without running out of battery power. Just beautiful up there, and there is NO WAY we would make it up the hill from town on regular bikes.
2. The Grand Canyon. SO much better than the bus! We went to the end of the road and stopped wherever we wanted.
3. Anza Borrego Desert. On several trips we have toured the giant sculptures, desert flowers and shopped in town. Traffic can be really bad when flowers are in bloom, so it is amazing to zip by everyone and never have to worry about finding a place to stop!
4. Lake Tahoe. Rode our bikes to Octoberfest where they had free valet bike parking, and avoided the two-hour traffic jam to drive there. We also rode for many miles on bike paths.
Having these bikes has opened up a whole new world of activities for us, not to mention they are FUN.
Oh, and we have never managed to use up the batteries in a day!
The Gold Standard
Two years ago I was told I would need knee replacements but I decided what I needed instead was some exercise to loosen up my 65 year-old-knees. After much research I decided the Pedego Interceptor was the bike for me. I am thrilled with my Pedego Interceptor and I ride just about every day except in the winter if there is ice. My knees have greatly improved and the thought of knee surgery does not even enter my mind. I have made many friends both human and canine during my rides. My bike is awesome to look at and even more awesome to ride. I could not be any happier with my bike!
Wow, and Then Some
I was a skeptic. Even with the endorsement of my sister and brother-in-law. Until, the test ride. Wow, and then some! Before I left Lenny’s e-Bikes in Madison, Wisconsin-we bought two Interceptors and a car bike rake.
We’ve taken trips all over the state and put up to 60 miles on our sweet rides. Quick area rides to dinner after work, and rides with relatives and friends. What a machine! Makes these 60+ year olds into 17 year olds again. Exercise and fun. Good combo. And we’re convinced, Pedogo is the way To Go! We’ve even rented them on a vacation in Arizona. We are Pedego Apostles!
Perfect for my age
I’m a 71 year old male. I’m unable to jog anymore so to keep up my cardio workout I bought a stationary bike. It was fine for about a year but I started to get so bored that I quit using it. I live in a very beautiful but hilly area so I’m not able to climb the steep streets near my home with any traditionally geared bike. Then, I read an article in the Wall Street Journal about a guy who bought the Pedego Mountain bike model so he could ride with his sons. I thought that would be the perfect solution for me. My main concern was that I wouldn’t get a good cardio workout with an electric bike. I went to the Pedego store in Sedona, Arizona and rented the bikes for 2 hours. The store let me try the four available models for 1/2 hour each. I’m tall and plan on doing mostly street riding. The Interceptor model was the most comfortable for me. Because I’m 6’4″ I would actually like a slightly larger frame but the largest frame works fine. Well, I was wrong about not getting enough of a cardio workout. After you ride the bike a few times you get proficient with the power and gear combinations you can make the workout as easy or as difficult as you like. I challenged myself early and over did it and my leg muscles were sore for a couple of days. I go on 14 mile rides three days a week and I have a lot fun and get a good workout at the same time. The only caveat that I would make to a new rider is that because the bike is quite heavy it doesn’t perform quite like a traditional bike so until you get used to it be cautious on sharp turns and wet pavement with sand or gravel. I would also recommend renting or trying out all the models to see which one suits you for comfort and handling. I highly recommend the Pedego bike for fun, relaxation and a good workout.
When I retired, I wanted an e-bike which was well made,durable,comfortable,easy to use, maintenance-free, and fun to ride. It was difficult to find one that met these criteria until I found the Pedego line of e-bikes. I have been riding it now for 7 years with pride and complete satisfaction.
Try One And You Will Be Hooked
A couple of years ago, a friend and I were riding down the beachfront path along Huntington Beach and Newport Beach. He on his Pedego and I on my some-other-brand. On the way back to Huntington Beach my friend stopped on the path and insisted that I ride his Pedego back to Huntington Beach. At first I said “no, I am happy with that I am riding”, even though my butt was sore from my seat, and my back was killing me from bending over to grip the handle bar. In retrospect, I am delighted that he would not take no for an answer. I finally did agree to ride his bike back to the Huntington Beach pier. By the time that we got there, I was feeling great, and his butt and back were killing him from riding my some-other-brand (also and electric bike).
When I told my wife of my experience that night, much to my delight she said “”if you like it that much, go out and get yourself a Pedego. Well, that was all that I needed to hear. Within a week, I had a new Pedego. Within a couple of month after riding my new Pedego, I put her some-other-brand electric bike up for sale and bought her a brand new 24″” Interceptor, with a basket and finders. She, like me was delighted with her new bike and would never go back to that some-other-brand. .
Within the past couple of months, we were fortunate enough to buy a second house. This house is in Long Beach, CA, which has many bike trails. To make a long story a short story, I just had to have a bike at our Long Beach house, and I am now the proud owner of a second Interceptor for that house.
The moral of my story is “If you try one, you will buy one”. I guarantee that you will be delighted with your Pedego and will probably ride it twice as much as any other bike that you have previously owned.
I'm now a cyclist!!
I married into a family of cyclists, but the sport never grabbed me. I bought a cruiser bike to rehab after ACL surgery, and probably put about 100 miles on it in 10 years.
My Pedego has changed all that! I’ve ridden almost 1000 miles so far, and loved every minute of it. I even did a 60-mile ride for my birthday this year. (Stopped for breakfast at mile 40 and topped off the battery.)
Never would have imagined I’d enjoy biking so much!
So much fun!
Riding the strand has never been more fun than it is with my Pedego Interceptor! I know I can ride further than ever before and make it back home with ease! Being able to use pedal assist and the occasional throttle to power me up steep hills on the way home have taken the fear out of the dreaded walk of shame up the hill while pushing my old powerless bike! We love our Pedego Bikes!
I am 60 years old and have Arthritis in my knees and feet. Excercise was painful. I tried traditional bikes but the pain was unbearable. I got my Pedego two years ago and have not looked back. I am able to work as hard or easy as I please. I ride every weekend and my joints feel much better. I am able to ride longer with pedal assist to help when I get tired. I have also purchased a City Commuter for my wife and we both enjoy the benefits of Pedego bike riding. Ride on!
I Love my Pedego
I am a heart,Stoke and COPD Patient. Pedego gave me a new life with my friends.
I was scared to ryde a bike because I can become out of breath and dont want to hold anyone up or be left behind.
With my Pedego,I’m out and about with my friends and even joined a bike riding club.
Never scared to ride anymore with my battery backup. When I get tired of peddling I have the power to assist me. Great exercise and a lot of fun.
My Pedego gave bike rallies back to me! When riding rallies on my road bike became drudgery, I decide it was time to make biking fun again. Now, I ride like the wind and have a blast. Everyone comments €œI like your bike”” and are very supportive. Fun times on longer rides are back!
I do have a bit of battery anxiety as I try to eek out as much from the battery as I can between charges. But so far, it hasn’t let me down!
It had been years since I’d ridden and I wasn’t even sure I could anymore but my husband talked me into trying and I’m glad he did. I wasn’t really strong enough to pedal far on my own, but by using the motor to help I was able to keep up and have fun. It didn’t take long for me to start getting stronger and I can work as much or as little as I want! It’s great! I only wish I had more time to ride!
