Mike believes strongly in being a valuable resource to his customer's, and has answered thousands of E-Bike and Bike Maintenance related questions over the past 5 Years.


Researching On-line can often be frustrating, as there are over 130 different brands of E-Bikes, with seemingly new entrants coming on line every other month. Even the on-line review websites don't necessarily help you compare one e-bike model versus another.



So Mike has put together an E-Bike Comparator Database, with specific ebike models and types, in comparison to other...

More E-Bike Models and Brands Priced under $2k than any dealer in Illinois

HERE AT MIKE'S E-BIKE WE CAREFULLY SELECT MORE HIGH QUALITY E-BIKE MODELS PRICED UNDER $2000 than any one in Illinois, and likely in the entire MIDWEST.




Importantly, here at Mike's E-Bikes, life is too short to engage in 'crazy' price mind games. ('Yes, Virginia,' unfortunately there are some out dated and old style retailers who aren't shy about using some shady business practices)



We are a professional retailer, with honest and ethical business practices. For example, we disclose our prices upfront in real time, show you our sales prices, and also have all new e-bike models on our floor. If an ebike model is a bit older and has been on the floor longer than normal, we will certainly tell ...

Mike's E-Bikes carries The Lowest Priced Mid-drive Ebikes in The Midwest

temp-post-image



Nobody here in Chicago, or for that matter the mid-west, can match our selection of highest quality, best value e-Bikes priced between $1000 and $2000 !



We are adding to that mix now, with high quality mid drive ebikes to also break below that $2000 threshold, which used to be only a couple years ago, $ thousands more. You have to stop in right now before the great weather ends, and see or ride first hand, and experience the natural feel of these mid drive e-bikes, that won't 'break the bank', while giving you all the benefits of ebikes that are much higher priced.



Why pay highway robbery prices at 'snobby' regular bike stores who barely 'dabble in ebikes' and that don't have anywhere...

temp-post-image


Temperatures are cooling down, so if summer has blown by you, and you want to savor the outdoors while you can, this is the BEST time of the year to get out biking. E-Bikes have really caught on, and in our 4th season now, e-bikes sales are better than ever. We've set new records every month this year versus last year ! Thank you to all our great customers !


Our most popular brand by FAR, is the Aventon E-Bike with their Pace 500 and Pace 350. The price points are very affordable, and the quality along with comfort is very high. We've re-stocked up for the end of summer and early fall season, which is a great time to get back into biking, and e-bikes eliminate all the excuses or obs...

In Stock now for Test Ride at Mike's E-Bikes !




The Takeaway: The Pace 350 is a Class 2 e-bike with big wheels, wide tires, and a long enough range (30 miles) to run around town or commute to work—for (finally!) less than a grand.




  • At $999.99, it’s one of the most affordable e-bikes on the market right now.




  • It’s Class 2, meaning its pedal assist tops out at 20 mph—and it has a throttle.

  • Frame integrated Samsung battery, and Disc Brakes.




  • Its also one of the lightest e-bikes on the market, at 39 lbs...

Why we don't service regular bikes

Well just like regular bike shops don't service electric bikes, we choose intentionally not to service regular (non electric) bikes.


Why ?


1. Regular bikes are not our business, and not our preferred area of expertise: ELECTRIC Bikes are our expertise.


2. We don't have time to service your regular bike. That's right. We are too busy selling electric bikes, and taking care of our electric bike customers.


3. Regular bikes today can often be cheaply made, not all are easily serviced. Unless a shop is dedicated to servicing many brands, and carrying those brand specific parts, it can be more costly in terms of overhead to service regular bikes. We choose specifically to service e-bikes that we carry...

Buying an e-bike on the internet ?

Why Buying On-line is not likely a prudent Idea !


temp-post-image


So if you've come this far to check out my website, and considered buying on-line, then here are some things to consider that maybe you weren't aware of that could help your decision making.




  • Every ebike has different ride characteristics, and some differences are more pronounced than others. To get the most enjoyment and best comfort, it really does help to actually test ride the ebike. If the firm is on-line, ask if they have local references who allow ebike test rides, or what they call 'ambassodors'. And be sure to compare the various models that are interesting to you. Motor wattage, and battery amp hour (capacity) and other specs really d...

Considering a Rad Rover or Rad City ? Then you need to watch this video...



Considering the RadRover Ebike? You better watch this first!





RadRover Review and Acceleration Test - How does it stack up? See complete test results in description below.


The test above would be more valuable, had he done it on a hill. Speed is one thing, but what you really want to know is does the Rad have the assist level you'd expect from 750 watts, on hills, for longer distances, and how will it hold up ?


We will have a Rad model for comparison at our shop this spring, so if you are considering a product from Rad, I would encourage you to try it out in person, and compare to other brands and models.
