Our Story


Mike started Mike's E-Bikes in his 'garage' in 2015 out of the motivating belief that electric bikes would help change people's commuting, and recreational fitness lives for the better.  Mike had been closely following the development of electric assist bikes since the late 1990's, when Lee Iococca (former Chrysler Chairman) first began introducing electric bikes ("E-Bikes") into the US.  The business has grown slowly but steadily, and as of August 2017, Mike is operating the business out of his shop in the Plainfield Small Business Park, on US-30.  We are intentionally not in the 'high-rent' district of a Naperville, or Hinsdale, so it allows us to keep our overhead costs to a minimum, and keep our prices low to you the consumer. 


As you may have learned by already reading elsewhere on the internet, electric assist on bikes makes it so much easier for all ages and all physical abilities (or physical "limitations") to get back into biking. The assist can be gradual, as much you want and when you want it. It won't over-power you, and won't decrease your ability for getting low impact exercise.  How is that ?  Studies and regular ebike riders have demonstrated that ebike riders go out for longer rides, and ride much more frequently, since riders do not worry about getting up hills, being away from home so far, and not getting back.  Every moment becomes so much more enjoyable when having that electric assist when you need it, and having no worries about innate physical ability or stamina.   

Mike's passion for electric technology and biking for fitness and healthy commuting, keeps him focused on the latest ebike trends and lots of research , as he also does a number of electric conversions himself to improve upon consumer choices that the market may not be meeting, and with his mechanical engineering background, plus over 30 years in the energy technology space,  is ready and able to help you get the best quality, most reliable e-Bike for your budget.  He recognizes you are going to enjoy your electric bike for many years, and Mike has developed first hand experience knowing what goes into making quality batteries, motors, and what makes for overall solid bike components.   Here at Mike's E-Bike's you find one of the best buying experiences ever, with Mike's super friendly and patient approach, enjoyably sharing his knowledge and allowing every customer to take as much time as they need.  

Thank you for visiting our web-site, and feel free to call Mike anytime, 7 days a week at 331-213-5910. You can schedule a specific appointment to come try any e-bike out for yourself to learn how these e-bikes are great fun, easily 'flattening those hills', and making longer rides an absolute joy.  

Our Vision


Our vision at Mike's E-Bikes is to see more regular people on e-bikes, that have sort of gotten away from riding their regular bikes no matter what reason that may be. We are accomplishing that by making it really easy to test ride and compare various models and brands of electric assist bikes.  We also feel its very important to provide more affordably priced e-bikes for adults and families, thus many of our models are priced below $2000.  

We are somewhat unique in the ebike market, as there are many more models being produced and sold for prices above $3000.  With the e-bike market still emerging here in the US, these higher priced ebikes are more common due to the lower volumes.  We find the proliferation of higher priced ebikes often confuses people, and may even lead them to believe they may not be getting a good quality ebike if they spend less - we know that is not true.   

So here at Mike's, we chose to counter that industry trend so many more people can get into an e-bike, and the e-bikes we carry will fit into more family's budgets.  Our primary brands including Schwinn, Magnum, Surface 604, and Blix are all very good to excellent quality ebikes at price points you are more likely to find fit in your budget. Buying here at Mike's,  you don't have to risk buying on-line and not knowing what you are really getting in terms of quality or ride characteristics, nor risk being really not sure what your after market support will be like if there are issues with the ebike. 

We also are bucking the industry trend of being on-line, and are set up as a local in-store purchase ebike shop, meaning we prefer to sell our e-bikes in person where you can see them first hand, and ask us lot's of important questions, actually ride them. E-Bikes, even more so than non-powered regular bikes, really ought to be test ridden for proper fit and safety due to the added power assist, and must be properly assembled including things like tensioned spokes, properly adjusted brakes, inspected electronics and batteries, and other quality checks that must be done post delivery. 

You are welcome to come by Mike's E-Bikes during open hours, or better yet, set up an appointment at a time that works best for you.
