New Commuter Jackets from Levis!

Category: Bike Trends, Featured Items








I LOVE my new Levis Trucker Commuter Jackets.

That’s right; I bought 2 LEVIS Trucker Jackets !

One is Bad–Ass Black denim & the other is “Cougar” colored. (also available in classic indigo – blue denim)

I get complements every time I wear them; So I wear them a lot. They look sharp & tailored with copper zipper tabs. They’re cut similar to café-racer performance jackets & feel James-Bond”ish” with so many hidden pockets.


Perfect for Vancouver; Comfortable, washable, all–weather protection. When it’s nice outside – it’s vented in the back and has fast-opening snaps instead of buttons. When it’s not so nice – it’s longer in the back and in the arms, with a water-proof hood stashed in the collar.

Black Canvas Rear Hooded

Available now in Indigo Denim, Black Denim and Cougar Canvas for the men, and Indigo Denim for the ladies at our 710 Denman Street and 2607 Main Street locations or online!

The New Electra 2016 Townie Go! Demo w/ Bosch motor is Here and Ready to Test Ride! Pre Order Yours Today!

Category: Bike Trends, Current Events, Featured Items, News








Ah e-Bikes. “The closest you can get to a motorcycle without makin’ yo mamma cry.”

Thanks to Electra, I don’t need one anymore! With a 32 kilometer top out speed I’m moving faster than I normally pedal uphill all without having to break my “don’t go any faster than the speed you’re willing to crash at” rule.

The Townie Go!, much like it’s non-electric counterpart still comes with a lightweight aluminium frame and the same great flat foot technology that has made the regular Townies the best selling bike in North America. Couple that with the new mid-drive motor from Bosch, and you’re so balanced the Dalai Lama is coming to you for advice.

If you got the chance to take last years model for a spin, let me tell you, the new Townie Go for 2016 is a whole new animal. This year Electra has partnered with Bosch to bring you a compact but powerful 250 watt mid drive motor with an Intuvia control center and 4 different modes of assist; Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo. That mid-drive motor also means you get to keep the Shimano 8 speed rear internal hub  and roller brakes for greater cruise control. Clean, compact and low maintenance, we love internal hubs!

The breakdown for the four modes of assist are as follows:

Eco: Effective support at maximum efficiency
Tour: Steady support for long tours
Sport: Immediate, powerful support for athletic riding off-road and in city traffic
Turbo: Direct, powerful support up to maximum cadence for athletic riding

This addresses my only complaint with the 2015 version, having multiple modes and a way to see them makes all the difference. Like the 2015 version it still has the “Get On and Go” throttleless system that adapts assistance based on cadence, but with the Intuvia control system you can also see your speed distance and battery power giving you a greater control over your ride.

And of course all the things that have made the Townie the best selling bike in North America are all still there, as well as integrated front and rear lighting powered by a Dynamo hub, fenders and rack and an Abus frame lock that is keyed alike with your battery for extra convenience.

Exciting, no? These babies are so hot Electra is already sold out until April in the US – the only way you’re going to get to see or try one of these before spring would be if we could get our hands on a demo unit before then…Which of course we did! It’s here now for the next week so DON’T WAIT!

This ride is visiting us for a limited time only so don’t delay! Come on down to our 2607 Main Street location between now and Christmas and give the future a spin!

Townie Go! 2016 models have now started to arrive in store but supplies are limited so don’t miss your chance! You’ll want to make sure you pre-order yours before it’s too late!
