New Electric Bike Shop in Waldo

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate-Kansas City Homes

I am SO glad to be back writing a blog about a new business in the Brookside/Waldo area!   There is another bike shop option in our neighborhood--offering electric bikes!

 

Pedego Kansas City opened in mid March, in the space of the former Family Bicycles at 7335 Broadway.  This is the second dealership for local Brookside resident Dan Cain, who has another store in Columbia MO along the Katy Trail.   Pedego is the number one brand of electric bikes in America, according to Navigant Research.

 

 

 

When I stopped by the store recently, Dan explained that each bike is ordered, assembled and delivered to specifically fit its owner.  There are several designs:  cruisers, commuters, folding latch, fat tire, mountain and tandem--each style built to perform on a specific terrain. The shop also carries a full line of helmets, baskets/bags, and Pedego branded wear.    The bikes are powered by a line of lithium-ion batteries, with ranges of 20-70 miles per charge depending on the specific battery.  The bikes operate with pedal assist, throttle, or as a regular bike.   Each comes with a five year warranty.

 

Curious about riding an electric bike?  Give it a try—Pedego Kansas City offers rentals as well, starting at just $10 per hour.  There are group discounts and weekly rates.  You can also stop by the store and take a test drive in the large parking lot in front of the shop.  Dan noted that due to COVID-19, just two patrons are allowed in the shop at this time, and he regularly disinfects everything with a hospital grade disinfectant.

I also wanted to mention that long time bike repair expert Bruce Homstead is back at the shop, working on Pedego and regular bikes for repair—so feel free to bring your manually powered bike in when it needs a tune up or repairs.

 

Pedego Kansas City is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10am-6pm; Saturday 9-4 and Sunday 12-4. Stop in and try a new bike adventure!

Hi Mary... what an interesting business to spotlight. Now I have to go and see if we have something similar in the Charlotte area.

Mary,

We have a Pedego store here in Santa Barbara.  And one of the neighbors has one that he rides, when he is in town.  A

Ironically, I just saw someone using an electric bike in an ad online.  It got me curious.  Now I know, Mary Hutchison, SRES, ABR!  Hope this new shop is very successful ... you're a great "cheerleader" for them ...
