Al with Island City eBikes in the SF Bay Area, CA is super knowledgeable and experienced. I have dealt with a lot of “fly-by-night” electric bike motor kit vendors, and Island City is a company you can trust. And they are right here in the USA, so you don’t have to wait for answers and your parts will be delivered in a timely manner. As a custom bicycle builder, Island City eBikes is my first choice for Bafang mid-drive motors, electric bike motor kits & electric bicycle parts.
Working with Al at Island City eBikes was great! I know nothing about electric Bikes and Al helped me pick out a great mountain bike and then add a complete electric bike motor kit using a Bafang Mid-Drive motor. He was fast and reliable and I would definitely work with him again!
Having decided to move from a standard bike to an electric bike motor ebike, I was a bit overwhelmed by all the information. Local bike shops in Oakland were not at all prepared to help me figure out what might work. I found Al through an internet search because I wanted a local source who would be knowledgeable and would let me find the right bike for me. While he does business over the internet, I was glad to be able to visit his garage and talk to him in person and try out a couple of bikes to find the right one. He was friendly and helpful and his prices can’t be beat. When I broke off a small piece of the bike unloading it from my car, he offered to mail a new one to me! (I took the bike back and he fixed it, since I’m clumsy with my hands). It’s a pleasure to do business with Al and I highly recommend contacting him if you are in the market for a great and reasonably priced e-bike!
Thanks for the quick shipment! Great 48v ebike battery, Lekkie chainring and Bafang electric bike motor kit. Great customer service.
Al added a Bafang eBike kit to my mountain bike. It is amazingly fast. I love it. Thanks Island City eBikes! Great San Francisco Bay Area location.
