Colorado is home to several up and coming electric bike manufacturers. One is based in our hometown of Eagle, Colorado. QuietKat electric bikes have actually been around for a few years. They first became popular with hunters. Now anyone with extra disposable income rides them around town. They are the top of the line brand. And, one of the best electric bikes for off road adventures.
But there are plenty of other great electric bike manufacturers even more reasonably priced. In fact, a bill has been introduced to offer a tax rebate of 30% of the bike’s price back. No telling if and when that will pass. But it is possible that soon these electric bikes may become mainstream.
If you don’t want to invest in one without having ridden it, you may want to find a local tour company. There are a few spread throughout the state of Colorado. Just like horseback riding, this is a great way to see the impressive mountains from a different perspective.
