SERVING SAN FRANCISCO COMMUTERS

We believe in bicycles and the power they hold to transform San Francisco into a model for 21st century transportation. We work with the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and the California Bicycle Coalition along with industry leaders to lobby our political leaders in Sacramento to pave the way for bicycles and electric bicycles in California.


The New Wheel is a sponsor of the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition.

RENTALS AVAILABLE

There is no better way to experience the incredible climate, scenery, or bike infrastructure of San Francisco than by bike. If you're thinking about becoming an electric bike owner, you may wish to rent an electric bike for a day to try your commute. Up to two days of rental expense can count as a discount against your final purchase, should the experience move you.



WHAT IS AN ELECTRIC BICYCLE?


ELECTRIC BIKES IN SAN FRANCISCO

The electric bicycle is the most common electric vehicle in places with serious congestion - major Chinese cities, Manhattan, and almost every large European metropolis. Electric bikes just makes sense when you want to stay active while living an active, connected life that's low on traffic.


The truth is, a car is simply not always the best tool for the job. In fact, present day electric bikes have a range better than the Chevy Volt, while paying for themselves in 7 to 9 months in places like the San Francisco.

ABOUT OUR FOUNDERS

Both of us have roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. Brett was born and raised atop a hill in San Francisco. Karen was born in Copenhagen, but moved when she was young to Sausalito, where her family has lived since the 1940's.


We met at UC Berkeley in Robert Reich’s public policy class and we've been together ever since. We’re pretty sure that our compatibility can be chalked up to shared ambition, a desire to go beyond the status quo, and a mutual contrarian streak.


Our passion for electric bikes can be attributed to many things, but the combination of growing up among San Francisco's legendary hills and a lasting desire to do good work for our community top the list.
