My name is Nancy Smith. I teach at a Round Rock school, but I live in South Austin. I spent all summer dreading the soul-crushing, nerve-shattering ride to and from Round Rock. I mean it. Insane traffic is a quality of life issue. So I explored Metrorail, which got me close, but not all the way to work. Then I tried the route from the nearest train station (Howard and Lakeline) on my regular bike, and it was a no go - too much time and I was worn out when I got there. I found out that Round Rock is a round rock, and there are some killer hills.
Then I started looking at electric bikes. What an elegant solution to a problem!
So, I bought a Pedego City Commuter 48 volt bike just like the one John rides when he takes tours out. I know when I'm being given a sales pitch, but when John said, "You will never regret getting this bike," I knew he absolutely meant it and it was true.
I could have bought this bike online - free shipping and all that. But when I first went in to Rocket Electrics and was telling Nicole and John about my experiments with trying to get to Round Rock by 8:15 every morning, and John volunteered to explore the best route by riding my test runs with me, I decided right then that I would become a loyal customer. He also offered a rental if my commuter ever needed service, since I would be using my bike as a bona fide transportation vehicle. Plus we shared alma maters.
I trust Nicole and John to be in Austin as e-bike experts for a long time. And let me tell you - riding an electric bike is more fun than I can adequately explain. Here was my first thought when I took off on a Pedego: "Oh my god, I wish I could experience doing this for the first time over and over." I love riding horses, and for some reason, this put me in mind of the joy of riding horses. It really, really, really is fun.
If you buy an electric bike, get it here. Let's support local business. Nicole and John will do you right.
