We're carrying e-bikes again!!!
Benno electric 'e-tility' bikes are in the building at Old Spokes Home. We picked Benno e-bikes for their quality, durability, user-friendliness, and reputation. Both of the models that we are carrying, the eJoy and the eScout, are rated for up to 400 pounds of rider and cargo, making them perfect choices for your daily commute, getting groceries, bringing your kid to school, and beyond.
There are some great incentives available to make e-bikes more affordable and accessible that we are happy to have available at Old Spokes Home, including instant rebates for Burlington Electric and Green Mountain Power customers, State of Vermont vouchers, and 0% financing from Opportunities Credit Union. Scroll down to learn more about those incentives!
eJoy and eScout specs:
- 400 Watt-hour batteries
- Up to 95-mile range
- Bosch Performance Line mid-drive motor
- Integrated rear rack and built-in front rack mount
- Integrated ABUS frame lock
- Shimano hydraulic disc brakes
- Shimano Deore 10-speed drivetrain
We fully support the e-bikes that we sell. We work on Bosch motor systems, and all of the bikes' mechanical and hydraulic systems.
