Prominent electric bike company builds substantial Eastern-US following.

IRVINE, Calif., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For five years, the Pedego Electric Bikes Company has built a solid following in the Western United States, particularly on the West Coast near their hometown of Irvine, California. Growth in the national - and indeed, international - marketplace has been steady. In recent months, however, the Eastern US has seen their momentum of dealership openings reach a flash point. New Pedego dealerships are springing up in several states, and their owners are eager to share the love they have found with these electric bikes.

For example, Timothy Seitz of Philadelphia fell in love with Pedego when he purchased a bike for his sister Kathleen, a lifelong cyclist who is battling MS and needed assistance to enjoy a bike path near her home. Now Timothy owns Pedego Philadelphia. As a result of repeated stories like this, the Pedego Electric Bike Company is on a roll...heading east big time. Here are a few of the recent additions to the Pedego family:

  • Pedego Barrington, Rhode Island. (401) 675-2000.
  • Pedego Hilton Head, South Carolina. (843) 438-4277.
  • Pedego Cincinnati. (513) 206-8891.
  • Pedego Philadelphia. (267) 969-7917.
  • Pedego Pittsburgh. (412) 287-7810.

Each Pedego dealership is equipped to offer a full line of Pedego electric bikes that help riders conquer hills and sail through headwinds with ease. The Comfort Cruiser, Pedego's original colorful, throttle-controlled electric bike, is available in classic or step-thru design and a selection of 36-volt or 48-volt batteries. The City Commuter model offers sleek styling with additional amenities such as Pedal Assist plus throttle. Trail Trackers take Pedego electric bikes where they haven't gone before - off the paved road and on to adventure. The Interceptor's speedy 48 volts and Pedal Assist function make it the cruiser-style bike of choice for those who like some extra power. And the latest addition, the Ford Super Cruiser, is a result of Pedego partnering with Ford Motor Co. to offer an extraordinary bike with maximum power, marshmallow ride and hot styling by famed bike designer Tony Ellsworth. "We take great pride in offering such a terrific assortment of quality electric bikes," says Pedego CEO Don DiCostanzo. "It's gratifying to know how much these bikes are loved from coast to coast."

Guests at any of the Pedego dealerships may take test rides, go on rental rides and even enjoy a guided electric bike tour. Be advised, many renters fall in love and eventually purchase their dream electric bike. And apparently, a lot of them fall so deeply in love with these bikes that they open Pedego dealerships as well.
