Welcome e-bike and Juiced Bikes fans!
Coming to you from beautiful Salt Spring Island, British Columbia Canada...
I know it's hard to believe, but the picture below was taken in early December, here on SSI.
I have been an e-bike builder and rider for 10 years, and after moving to hilly Salt Spring five years ago, I opened a small shop on our property doing conversions (Hill Eater E-Bikes Ltd is a home based business, that's why our address is not listed on-line)
I came across Juiced Riders while surfing online, and was interested enough by the huge battery capacity of the U500 to inquire about becoming a dealer. I brought in some bikes, and they are impressive: These are really well made bikes! Juiced Riders has been too busy building and selling bikes in the USA to develop the Canadian market, which is where I come in. Hill Eater is now the exclusive Canadian distributor for Juiced Bikes.
Why aren't you pulling this trailer with a Juiced Bike, you ask? Well, I built this this rig before I got into Juiced. Stay tuned for updates on rigging the U500 for towing, it is certainly capable. In case you hadn't noticed, this
is powered by two direct drive hub motors and its own battery. The towing bike must have a throttle and e-brake connection to the trailer but it does not have to be an e-bike. The trailer pushes the bike, and also has regenerative braking.
Around here we do as much as we can without the use of a car, so local deliveries are made by bike when possible. The trip to Victoria includes a ferry trip, which is expensive by car but cheap by e-bike, even when the bike is 16 feet long!
At Hill Eater we are e-bike believers! We live with them every day, and we know how they can change your life for the better. We know how important your bike is to you, and we make every effort to get you on the road affordably, and keep you going if you need help or advice.
We have a dealer program, and sell to bike shops across Canada. We also sell on-line direct to customers. If you have a bike shop, please inquire about becoming a dealer for these great bikes!
