How To Get A Custom E-Bike Made In The USA
In recent years there has been increased calls for bringing manufacturing back to the USA, and that includes the production of e-bikes. American-made products have a long history of being top quality, while also supporting American workers.
In this era of globalization, practically all products are made using parts that came from multiple countries. That means most USA companies can only say their products are “assembled in the USA,” instead of made in the USA.
It’s one thing to find a company where most of the bike is assembled and made in the USA, but what about getting that bike customized? One e-bike producer – the Electric Bike Company – found a way to assemble all their bikes in the USA, using many USA-made parts, while also offering some of the most extensive customization available in the market.
For many riders, their e-bike is an extension of themselves. This is especially true with cruiser e-bike owners. Some opt to give it a unique look that aligns with their identity. But most new e-bikes are sold without the option to change much, unless you’re a do-it-yourselfer. The Electric Bike Company understands and offers one of the most extensive bike customization options in the industry.
Giving customers a broad array of paint options, the Electric Bike Company takes customization to the next level. Specializing in unique color schemes, EBC shoppers can utilize the customization service when picking out their e-bike on the EBC website. Customers can really experiment with their eccentric side, with the ability to customize up to 10 different parts of their bike, either choosing one of the 38 stock paint colors listed on their site. If none of the stock colors suits your fancy, EBC will work with you in selecting a custom color, with near-limiteless color options available.
“People can get pretty out there with their colors and design options,” said CEO Sean Lipton-Smith. “Unlike most car dealers, we are able to say “yes,” to most of our customers’ wishes when it comes to customizing their new Electric Bike Company bike.”
Buyers pay an additional fee for the paint customization, based on how extensive their choices are. Using high quality paint, EBC guarantees their paint work. But be sure to ask for the touch up paint kit, in case you get a scratch or chip during one of your adventures. The kit even comes with a “How To” guide making it easy for anyone to do touch up work.
But the customization isn’t limited to paint choices, as EBC customers have as many as 14 different components they can also choose from for their new e-bike.
Riders who want to be able to ride further on a single charge have a choice between four different battery configurations (on certain models) that can take them well beyond 100 miles on a single charge. Other customization options include changing the drivetrain, upgrading the suspension, switching grips, wheels and tires, as well as safety features like lights, and security features to prevent theft. Also available – and something we are big fans of – is EBC can swap out the cadence sensor with a torque sensor, so your pedaling experience is more robust and engaging.
Considering the range of options available for customizing your new Electric Bike Company e-bike, it would be difficult to find another company that can give you the same kind of customization service – or at least we don’t know of anyone else who can. And this is one of the reasons why EBC has such a loyal customer base.
“Most of our customers have us do some kind of customizing when they buy their new e-bike.” said EBC Manager Dandan Long. Long added that many of their paint requests are very unique and that no two bikes ever look the same. “Our bikes are as unique as our customers, and we want to help them get a bike that really represents that.” Long concluded.
