HEY Team Alamedans!
We are so happy to announce that we have a new Sponsor – The Electric Bike Warehouse (formerly “Island City Bikes”), a full-service electric bike retail, service, and repair center founded and run by our very own Alvin Carpenter!
Alvin began Island City Bikes back in 2017 when he recognized the upcoming wave of demand for electric bikes. He first concentrated on converting standard bicycles to electric bikes and, since that time, has converted nearly 3,000 standard bikes to electric. Since founding, Alvin had to move his business twice due to quick growth and the need for ever more space. When moving to San Leandro, at 2551 Williams Street, he changed the name of his company to The Electric Bike Warehouse.
The Electric Bike Warehouse is the Bay Area authorized dealer of Aventon electric bikes, and also have a large selection of other electric bikes such as Eunorau, Snapcycle, Addmotor and Nakto. They also continue to undertake bike conversions using products from the Bafang Corporation, and have a full-service repair shop for helping customers with electric bike repairs, tune-ups and safety checks. And, the company also maintains a wonderful blog on their website where you can read and learn about electric bikes.
Please be sure to visit their website at www.electricbikewarehouse.com and swing by their warehouse to see upwards of 40 different electric bikes from a variety of suppliers!
