According to Santa Cruz Tech Beat, Current eBikes Opens in Downtown Santa Cruz,
Locally owned retail bike shop offering primarily electric bicycles—sales, service, rentals—opens SaturdayTomorrow, September 3, 2016, Current eBikes, Inc., the first retail bike shop in Santa Cruz County to specialize in electric bicycles will open at 9am. Owner, Mike Ahern, chose the site at 131 Front Street (across from Kaiser Arena) for its close proximity to the future RAIL TRAIL head, downtown, the Boardwalk and the scenic West Cliff Drive. Unlike most traditional bike shops that carry just a few electric bikes (if any), Current eBikes will carry the latest and one of the largest (perhaps the largest) inventory of leading electric bike brands in the County for purchase and rental. The Current eBikes service department is state of the art and staffed by experienced bike repair technicians.
I’ll have visit them soon to see what they are offering, even though I’m not currently in the market for an electric bicycle (I need the exercise of pedaling).
