Electric Bike Technologies HQ Tour: Pennsylvania-Based Ebikes, Etrikes, and Conversion Kits



hey guys what's going on so I am here at the epicenter of electric bike technologies I'm here with Jason Kraft so here at electric bike technologies I actually have quite a few different brands that you may have heard of before Jason can you tell me a little bit about the history sure we started in 2008 with the e bike kit and that's the electric bike conversion system and since then we've added a couple of brands so not only do we have a bike kit but we have the Liberty trike which is an alternative to a mobility scooter we have electric trike comm so we do completely assembled custom electric trikes direct-to-consumer and pretty soon we have electric bike store comm where we're going to be introducing a new line of 2020 lineup we're calling it electric bikes that are all mid-drive in frame battery and all that stuff so cool so that's it's quite a lot to take in but once you come inside and see the facilities you'll see that it's kind of segmented a little better kind of you know understand it because it took a little bit for me to get the hang up but yeah they have different parts of it let's let's just go ahead and jump in so these are our offices right away you see people riding electric bikes in here and this is a Franken bike obviously converted with an e-bike kit so inside of our offices we have someone for operations we have main office over here we have an office with some cubicles here we have service and sales I'm thinking in the back this is an 18,000 square foot facility and assume we have plans to increase that as well we started off pretty small and 300 square feet and over the years we've kind of doubled each time we move and I would plan on a move for next year as well so far we're in the lunch room with the cartoons on and we'll come in here and this is the warehouse and as you can see above we have different signs up there to tell you what's going on wheel building is what this one says and this is the ebike in this is all hub motors that we use for the bike kit we actually use them for a lot of our electric trikes as well wheel building here you can see we have four or five stands there we have a couple of lacing machines that one from Holland mechanics we're pretty proud of and I think that we probably build more hub motor wheels than anybody in the country you can see a lot of the wheels hanging for electric trike over here this is electric trike comm so this is where all of the electric trikes get assembled you can see we have some fat ties from J and B here we have some other trikes we have some traditionals and these trikes are built custom fitted for the customer and they go direct from here we'll see the shipping in the back they go direct from here to the customer all available online or electric trike calm so that's pretty cool so yeah this is one thing that I got to see firsthand is that the guys over here actually get the measurements for the trike that's going out to the customer custom-fit for the length the length of their leg for the height of the of the person and then it ships out fully assembled in a big box correct to them so that's a kind of a kind of a experience you can get from getting something here in America Pennsylvania yeah the guys put a lot of work into it and delivering a custom trike is no no easy feat so we do ask for X seen so that when the trike is delivered the customer just cuts the Box pulls it out and is ready to I mean they can go within 10 minutes of this being delivered to them so it's a pretty unique delivery great you know before we do that I want to turn around real quick we're just getting into the middle to the middle of this and really just starting on electric bike store calm and that is in this area you can see a couple of the bikes that are just assembled and will be will be doing a big promotion in a couple of weeks and introducing this whole new 2020 lineup from electric bike technologies of two-wheeled ebikes latest technology color displays in frame batteries Dabu and beef on mid drive motors so a lot more to come on that so you here at a really exciting time as we here in the summer of 2019 here so we'll go to the back this is also one of our new ones just a real quick sneak peek and I know you're gonna have a review of this but this is a mid drive tricycle with a limited-slip rear giant basket back here you got the Fat Tire 4-inch tires you got the color display this is a Buffone ultra system on here so this is a pretty wicked tricycle been around a long time you like your bike business that I haven't seen too many like this this is really a latest high-end tricycle and middle motor tricycle so that's pretty cool it's gonna be a lot more to come on that over here you can see all these guys working hard Liberty trike is one of our most popular brands livery tank again is an alternative to a mobility scooter and folding tricycle which actually completely separates so it's super portable very durable up to 400 pound payload on these and they will pull 300 pound rider up a wheelchair ramp no problem so true 750 watt front hub motor front disc brake foldable collapsible just like a mini mighty super tricycle it's for mobility so we're really proud of that and as you can see it comes in 10 different colors and this is a symbol all here all in our Bucks County warehouse this is 52 parts 10 different colors powder-coated we do all this stuff here and put these strikes together and they ship direct to consumer out of the box 30 minutes by hand no tools pretty cool stuff so very proud of that we're gonna walk in the back it's a little crazy today we constantly have shipments come in so we'll walk back here again 18,000 square feet so back here is about 3,000 square feet this is dedicated to housing stock and then also shipping and three tricycles over here so excuse the noise it's always pretty busy back here you can see some of this stuff in action you can see one of our most popular trikes the phat trike here this is a front 750 watts of fog but this is going out to some lucky customer will block their information but you can see behind me we have done he's packing up some of our trikes and you can see there's five here's number six but these tricycles are fully assembled so each one of these is going to a loving home somewhere here in the contiguous United States it's on a custom palette custom giant box and in there it's sized for the customer know will cut that side out they'll pull it out the game will be ride with ten minutes after delivery which is pretty cool so this is the back this is where we store everything here's an interesting note like just if you want to turn around this door so this is our lot was where everything ships from and right over there is our powder coater so a strategic move here for where our warehouse is to be able to deliver the Liberty trike in all of its ten colors and we have plans for a traditional 24-inch step through mid drive that's coming soon and that will also be offered in the colors to take advantage of our powder coating ability right well what about this is it's quite impressive to see everybody out here working it's it's common to see a lot of electric bike companies it's very common to see them have a handful of employees that do a lot of shipping but not really the assembly you know the assembly that packing the customization is definitely a unique thing that's that's pretty good you know keeping jobs here in America oh absolutely or people I mean we're growing the electric bike industry itself is growing the market is growing and you're right we don't just bring things in and slap labels on them and reship them you can't do that you have to really do quality control you have to assemble and then package if you want something to go out perfect in my opinion so so putting things together here doing more here creating jobs here it just feels awesome so it is just awesome well we're just so happy that we've experienced the growth that we've had so let's go ahead um yeah II bike it II Boyd Cooter's over here and yeah the oldest brandy bike kit we have over 500 dealers now in the u.s. you know conversion is still a thing as you saw before we hand build all the wheels that going to be bike it so every single wheel is hand-built here in our warehouse so over here kind of a smaller area but very complicated the ebike kid has been around for so many years we have several different models right we have all the way back to 2010 2012 and 2015 and so down to our latest model but these guys here are packing all this with you all hazmat shipping we do custom boxes these boxes are made by a company locally over in Trenton New Jersey just across the bridge very proud of that all of our packaging we've designed and we do that here in Trenton New Jersey so you can see the the crosses are designed also you can see the hazmat stuff so a lot of complicated shipping goes into this also in the electric bike business with the hazmat shipping you have to be very careful can you tell me a little bit about that mechanism over there I I noticed this big big packing mechanism it looks like it dumps a bunch of material into the box so yeah that bag is the cause of all the dust in the warehouse and it's filled with something called vermiculite which you could actually use in gardening but it's used in hazardous material shipping and it's to soak up any kind of hazardous material spills that's what it's for so you have to do it it's the law so we dump that into every battery box so it gets there safely and legally and and and that's it you know that's the kind thing that you just have to you have to do in the ebike business it's a way to do it you got to do it on the up-and-up so no great yeah so that is that is our warehouse over here you can see there's a bunch of batteries and stuff also we have a lot of different batteries depending on the brand and the product ebike kit has a couple of different battery options Liberty trike has its own right in front of us I know you're gonna see reviews of this too we're just so excited about it this is the folding bike that's coming out this is part of the 2020 lineup with the colored screens and the Adamu made drive motor this actually right now is my favorite bike in the warehouse when you get to ride one of these it's just really also we're super psyched about that you know we've been around a long time and we've been kind of mastering the things that you know like the conversion systems we're mastering the Liberty trike and we stayed within the three wheel space for a long time but now as we get into 2020 with this new lineup it's time to get into the two-wheeled space and we're super excited about what's about to happen with that so I think it's gonna be really successful we've got the people we've got the experience and now we have the bikes with the latest technology and you know everything is just looking on the up and up for us and for the electric bike industry as we head in 2020 great yeah I'm I'm really excited that I got to come here and check them all out and like Jason said you're going to be seeing reviews on the site electricbikereview.com for all sorts of different trikes and two wheelers as well including the Liberty trike not so much you might get it didn't get time for that one yeah but yeah you're gonna see a lot of that stuff coming up so thanks for watching guys it's been quite an eye-opening experience to come here and see all the many different facets of the operation so yeah thanks a lot Jason for showing us around you're welcome and Mikey's been here for a week and it's been a real pleasure we're grateful that electric bike review in we missed you court but we're grateful for you coming in it's been a real it's been a real fun week man thank you for coming thanks for watching guys feel

    It's great to hear somebody call out the carrying capacity of the etrikes. One thing I've found is it's very tempting to just load the rear baskets up with over a hundred pounds. But most of the entry level adult trike's rear axle warps as that heavy a load gets bounced around on pot holes and the like.

    Yeah I know I am full of questions. This time is simple, since I have seen the conversion kits often are better and cheaper than a full bike. However most of the ones I have seen don’t come with a battery. So my question is I want 48v and 500 , who do you suggest that will sell with two batteries as I am shooting for at least 100 miles a day
