Karen Wiener explains the benefits of electric bikes in San Francisco, and highlights our new car & bike trade in program
The New Wheel in the News
Karen Wiener speaks with Bay Sunday's Kenny Choi to talk about the latest in high-tech cycling.
"Given the raucous level of enthusiastic conversation that breaks out every time a new two-wheeled “test driver” returns from a trip along Sir Francis Drake Boulevard, or across the new pedestrian-bike bridge and beyond, one begins to wonder if The New Wheel is perhaps just one shiny spoke in some newfangled, fast-spinning, alternative transportation revolution."
"Coining themselves 'the optimistic bike shop,' Thurber, Wiener, and the team at The New Wheel are dedicated to their vision where an e-bike is an appealing choice for city living. For them, this means setting an example of how best to use this innovative technology and working collaboratively with customers to help bring their sustainable aspirations to life."
"I've never been excited for a hill on a bike before. But last week I tooled around on an electric bicycle with Karen and Brett Thurber, the husband-wife owners of Bernal Heights' sweet-swanky new shop The New Wheel."
Cnet's Molly Wood takes an electric bike from The New Wheel up one of the steepest hills in San Francisco.
