About Our Shop
Our shop was started in 1997, just as electric bikes started off on their journey to popularity in the United States. Originally made in India, we took one look at these pedal-assisting machines and thought that this was the future of biking. When these products hit the shelves, we just couldn’t keep them stocked! Now, we offer our services Monday through Saturday, with biking events offered on select Sundays! Additionally, since we know that bikers are often commuters, we also extend our shop times on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays until 8pm – because we know that getting to and from work is important! For all other days, our shop is open from 8am to 6:00pm.
Part of our enthusiasm for electronic bikes comes in our mission to convert existing bikes to pedal-assisted ones. We want you to know that your bike can be an electronic bike! Offering conversion kits as well as extensive service, Durham Electric Bikez will keep your current bike in-tune and will help you convert it, should you choose. Our team is trained and experienced with both bike maintenance and electronic bike conversion.
Additionally, our shop offers co-op membership, meaning that as a member of our co-op you have access to our shop and tools to customize your bike in any way possible. Premium members get 20 hours shop time per month, and access to our network of mechanics and volunteers who are there to help in any way possible. Volunteers are dedicated customers and mechanics with a passion for biking and bike maintenance and conversion. All volunteers get as much shop time as they put in to volunteering, so if you spend 20 hours helping others convert their bikes, you get 20 hours in the shop to convert your own bike! This does not include parts, but we hope that doesn’t sway you.
Finally, all dedicated customers do get perks. Every 5 visits to the shop earns you 1 co-op hour, and every 15 visits earns you 5 hours. Our shop contains everything your bike could possibly need – from conversion kits to wheels. If we don’t have it, we will order out for it, making sure that our customers come first.
Sound too good to be true? We promise it’s not. Please contact us to learn more or to schedule an appointment to convert your bike to an electronic bike. You won’t be disappointed.
