    Cove Bikes Coming In From Vancouver, B.C.
    Friday, November 20, 2009 @ 1:18 pm
    Posted by Rodney


    Way back in 1981, when off-road rippers were all on single speed cruisers, and gnarl was slick and slippery singletrack, Cove Bike Shop owner Chaz Romalis and his Brothers had a little shop in North Vancouver, BC – a front they used to convince the queens cowboys that they weren’t high on crank, just high on bikes.

    Over the years, as sick North Shore riding kept getting sicker, the trails began witnessing a high volume of busted helmets, battered egos and torn bagskins. Chaz and his faithful hound Gramps soon realized that if they were going to keep riding and reproducing, they had better do some redesigning.

    In 1992, after years of North Shore testing and riding, Cove Bikes emerged to release the world’s first North Shore freeride bike. The riding, testing and torn bagskins didn’t stop.

    Today, Cove Bikes is an integral part of the North Shore scene. We offer our own line of custom designed bikes, which all begin their cherished lives on the North Shore of Vancouver, BC – The Heartland.

    We welcome Cove Bikes down to the City for our 2nd Expo. Stop by and check out these incredible bikes.

    Catch A Sneek Preview Of The Plugz Pedal Assisted Electric Bike!
    Friday, November 20, 2009 @ 1:07 pm
    Posted by Rodney


    Plugz will offer simple,  dependable, comfortable and functional pedal assisted commuter bicycles. The 250W electric motor applies power automatically based on the torque applied to the pedals by the rider or through throttle control at the rider’s option. The bikes weigh slightly more than a standard bicycle, at about 50 Lbs and can be loaded on a bus or the ferry. The Li-Ion batteries provide a range of about 30-35 miles without pedal assist and 35-50 miles with pedal assist.

    The first rental and sales store in the city will open February 2010.  Nonetheless, you can get a first-look at this amazing bike (where, you ask) at the 2009 SF Bike Expo.
