Minot,, ND (PressExposure) August 18, 2008 -- ElectraPed LLC today announced that the company has established retail dealers for the Wentz Family of E-Bikes in 20 states in the first two months of business, surpassing initial projections for the period by over 125%.
Of course, we still have 30 states to go, plus the Canadian provinces, but weâre very happy with the rapid pace of dealer sign-ons, so far, noted ElectraPed President, Brian Walz.
There are nine different models in the Wentz Family of E-Bikes, including bikes in the mountain, street, touring, three-wheeler and foldable categories. The foldable version fits easily into a car trunk, and the three-wheeler has proven to be especially popular with seniors. Several models feature a European step-through style, and all of the Wentz E-Bikes offer a smooth ride, silent motor operation, and an impressive range.
Duane Brekke, founder of ElectraPed, says he is particularly proud of the craftsmanship of the bikes.
They are built just like a John Deere tractor.
The sturdy construction of the E-Bike, the growing market, and a wholesale price that allows bike retailers to price all of the Wentz models under the $1,000 mark has spurred the early acceptance by resellers, added Brekke.
The Wentz E-Bikes have a small hub motor to assist pedalingâallowing riders to go farther, faster, and up hills with greater ease. Bike riders can also choose to just sit and let the motor do all of the work or turn off the motor and use the Wentz like a regular bicycle.

About the E-Bike Market According to the International Herald Tribune, the global edition of the New York Times; consumers in the United States are migrating in greater numbers to e-bikes, drawn in part by lighter and more powerful batteries, high fuel prices and practical aids like bike lanes and lockers. E-bike sales are forecast to double in the U.S. by 2009 to 200,000 from 100,000 in 2005.
