we purchased 2 bikes one for on the pavement the other for dirt trails.. these are awesome bikes. we even had an out of town friend test drive ours and she was sold. I love the fact that I can ride a bike even with asthma and I can keep up with other people riding. Ken was great at showing the different styles and prices. I recommend these for anyone with limited health issues who want to enjoy riding a bike, or just enjoy riding a bike.

We first met Ken two years ago. Great guy and stands behind his product. We initially purchased both a mountain and a fat tire. After a few months, and a couple of thousand miles, we added duplicate bikes for our family and friends to enjoy. Brake performance is terrific! We have more than 50% pad life left on our first two bikes at the 2000 mile mark (used mainly in the steep north Reno hills). We took two bikes to Yellowstone during the smoky California fires, and enjoyed miles of priceless trail rides in the woods. Zero problems…zero. I have since swapped the chain ring for a 32 tooth w/11×42 cassette (very low gearing) on my bike for very steep off road torque. Ken has been there whenever a question comes to mind. Great service is so rare these days…and he’s a zero sales pressure guy, you can trust him! Michelle was initially very apprehensive about the bikes, with concerns of balance, confidence and safety that comes with approaching her 60’s, while I’m looking at 65 LOL. She has since stated these bikes were the single best decision for exercise, exploration adventures and simply spending a lot more quality time together. She’s now found all over the the Reno hills, visiting the horses at S. Meadows, and venturing from the McQueen HS area over to the Skyline Tavern, or to Verdi for a snack. Our average rides cover 20 to 35 miles as a norm. As a career machinist/welder/manufacturer, I can vouch for the quality build Ken has created. Like so many of the reviews, after researching various eBikes in our area, doing business with Ken was the obvious choice for both the bikes, and consistent service after the sale. The gearing advantages of a mid drive outperform hub drives resulting in lower battery demands on steep inclines. I recently re-geared our spare fat tire Mid Drive and loaned it to a good friend for hunting/scouting use. It performed flawlessly carrying over 60 pounds of gear and a 185 pound rider off road for 80+ miles over 5 days. A spare battery was carried, but never needed.

Purchased an MDF-500 Mid Drive Electric bike 1 year ago (March 2021) from Mid Drive Electric Bikes and very glad I did. The bike has performed beyond expectations. I am riding single track trails , coastal trails, handles rocky trails and sandy trails as well as paved trails. Ken and his assistant Ian put service first and are always prompt and efficient to help with questions and adjustments sometimes needed.

Purchased a new bike from Ken. He assembled it and delivered it to my house. After riding it for a while I realized it was to tall for me. Called Ken and told him I was uncomfortable with it. He told me to bring it back for a smaller frame no questions asked. Kens a straight up dude who will wants to make his customers happy and will go the extra mile to do so. I am very happy with my ebike and highly recommended Midrive. By the way Kens dad reminds me of the old man on Pawn Stars. They make a great team.😎

Ken is the best! Very knowledgeable and definitely not a high pressure salesman. We hit all the ebike stores in town, then returned to Ken the next day for the best bikes at a great price. We bought 2 of the folding variety. Love them! Had an issue with one (manufacturing defect), and Ken happily replaced it with a brand new bike within hours.

We purchased 2 bikes and are enjoying them immensely! Quick charging, smooth riding ,and powerful. Mountain bike and City bike. We’re so happy to find bikes that met all the specifics we wanted , were available immediately and at the right price. Reassuring to know service would be available and close by should we need it. Oh and we did not have to put the bikes together and Ken delivered them next day!!

The Mid Drive e-bike is a great value. The integrated components are top of the line. When you put them together, you get a bike that is powerful, attractive, well balanced that is a pleasure to ride.

Purchased two bikes (sport bikes, with the fat tires) several months ago (wife and I) and could not be happier. Excellent product, best in class performance and absolutely the coolest looking bikes out there. Every time we ride the bikes people come to tell us how much they love them. Still surprised by how fast they can go (ours do about 30 mph in the top gear) and at least 40+ miles to a charge. Owner Kenny really knows his products and is easy to work with. Strongly recommend for anyone, you won’t be sorry.

Nice guy. Good price. This is my 3rd ebike and the best si far. Everyday ride. Long battery life, strong motor.
Mid-Drive electric bicycles that have been modified to place a motor in between the bike pedals. These motors are installed right above the bottom bracket of the bike, a place that ensures a low center of gravity, providing you with optimal balance. Electronic bicycles have become extremely popular as a result of the emphasis that many people have regarding the conservation of fuel. Finding alternative ways to power vehicles, in the absence of combustion engines, is why people are developing these e-bikes all over the world.
Mid-drive motors are capable of enabling the riders to reach the peaks of their performances, each gear reciprocates the pedaling. As a result of the improved torque of the mid-drive motor, it conserves the battery from being drained. This Maximizes further riding distances on one charge.
On the other Hub-Drive Bikes do not have the capability to change gear modes within the hub. While hub motorbikes are similar in design, they cannot match the torque and high-performance levels that the mid-motor bikes can achieve. Thus, making the motor work much harder and offering less battery life. This Minimizes riding distance on one charge.
Most would agree that the benefits of Mid-Drive outweigh those of their Hub-Drive counterparts.
First, if you are a cyclist that enjoys riding around on your bike, you will absolutely love these electronic bikes that have so much to offer. The mid-drive motor will give you an exceptional amount of power, allowing you to relax as it moves you forward toward your next destination. In fact, our bikes are some of the absolute best manufactured today and are also extremely affordable.
One of the reasons that our mid-drive bikes are so popular is that they can enhance your performance levels. Even if you are extremely athletic, the ability to continue moving forward, even on inclines, will not be impaired due to the angle. These are also made for easy maintenance. They can be serviced rapidly, allowing you to feel confident that each day it will function at optimal levels. We also have many different bikes in stock, in many different colors, operating at different levels of wattage. We only use the latest technology for our bikes and they come with an extended 50-mile range. You can access this from a single charge, plus take advantage of high speeds, extra comfort, and unbelievable torque that you simply can’t find on other mid-drive electric bikes on the market.
