Testimonial 60 – Kirk R.
Since we founded EVELO in 2011, thousands of people now have an electric bike they’ll enjoy for years to come.
I try to enjoy my new EVELO every day. I ordered the handlebar vertical extension to keep my back straight. Four major surgeries and seven procedures have made it virtually impossible for me to use a regular bike, but Minnesota has great bike trails – and the EVELO is the perfect answer to my problem. It helps me cope with the wind and the cold, taking the stress off these older bones, and keeping me up and moving.
Is it expensive? Yes, but it is pure quality, and if it helps me keep my weight and blood sugar down, it is priceless! As my grandfather told me, "you get what you pay for."
WOW, what a difference pedal-assist makes! This is the only way to ride a bike any distance at my age. I love riding my bike on all the great trails here in Henderson, NV, but some of the hills were getting too difficult, so I had to walk my bike. Not now – I put that pedal-assist on, and away we go. What fun!
I have the Evelo Aurora with the extended battery, and Todd has the Aries with the extended battery. I got mine for my 60th birthday in March this year, and I loved my bike so much, I would not ride again until Todd got one so we could enjoy together. Now our honeymoon will be wherever we can take our bikes – coast or mountains? Not sure yet. They are fun bikes, and we love ours!
So far I absolutely adore my Aurora. I live in Alaska. I was born with a heart condition called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy that made biking no longer possible – pedaling up-hill put too much of a load on my heart. Well, after 15 years of no biking, I am back to it thanks to EVELO. I use pedal-assist the entire time I am on inclines, which is a lot in our beautiful valley. I will update after I have the bike for a while to let you know how long the battery will last in our very hilly area. So far I've not had issues at all and am having a blast. Thank you EVELO. Without you I would have been grieving through another Alaska spring and summer and fall with no biking. Now, no excuses – I can RIDE!
I purchased my EVELO OmniWheel about a year ago to help me surmount the rather intimidating hills surrounding the small hamlet of Wales Hollow, where I live. I set the wheel up to be activated by the thumb throttle rather than the automatic response to pedaling speed. I can now ride to the nearest village to shop or just head out to enjoy the area. I have found that I now ride more often and get more exercise than I used to. Well done EVELO. Good product and good service.
Purchased an EVELO bicycle for my wife. I had LOTS of questions prior to purchasing. John O'Donnell was very patient and answered all of my questions very quickly, sometimes even responding late in the evening.
My wife was overjoyed with her bicycle. She said it has been the best birthday present she ever got. Then she insisted I get myself one.
The second time around EVELO shipped the wrong bike, but they made everything right fairly quickly. They sent FedEx to my house to pick up the mis-shipped bike, and gave me $100 credit to their accessories store.
When I had some technical questions, Bill Cummings was very helpful in answering my questions, sending detailed pictures showing how it all worked.
The whole EVELO team has been delightful to work with, and the bicycles are better than we could have imagined. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company.
My experience with EVELO has been superior from sales to service. Besides the very well-manufactured electric bike, the extremely knowledgeable and professional staff are the keystones to EVELO's unsurpassed customer service.
I have worked with both David Dye and Bill Cummings, whose support and follow through are exceptional and indicative of what you can expect from EVELO's customer care.
I have even had the opportunity to talk personally to Boris Mordkovich, the CEO and co-founder of EVELO by phone. How many CEOs follow up on your purchase with a personal phone call?
The care and passion exhibited by the entire staff for their customers is extraordinary.
I love my bike -- it has given me the opportunity to exercise, get back into shape, and be outdoors.
Just got my Luna 500 watt with the NuVinci Harmony system and was blessed with a couple of nice days. After syncing the NuVinci (requires 3 hands, or 2 hands plus a way to raise the rear wheel), I am on the road.
Now to put it all out there: I am 76, grew up on a bike, tried to get back into riding at retirement but was discouraged because of sore leg muscles and shortness of breath. This bike is amazing. Both old problems disappear when the PAS and/or throttle take the edge off. I am still in the learning mode, and I have no need to worry about training to get into condition.
I said this bike is amazing, but it is also a "hoot" with the amount of fun you can have on the bike!
The EVELO sales consultant (wish I remembered his name) helped me narrow down the best bike for me, which instilled confidence in the company. All-in-all, I expect this bike to meet my needs exactly. Thank you, EVELO.
Total experience with EVELO has been great. Love the bike, and it's good with older riders with not-so-young knees.
Had a small issue with a broken kickstand. Emailed Alex Stegemann about the problem, and he called back within three hours and discussed it with me. This was on a Thursday, and I had a new part on Saturday.
Everywhere I go, people admire the bike. I recommend this company to any interested in electric bikes.
I have had my EVELO Aurora since the summer of 2015. It is a great e-bike backed an excellent company and caring, skilled employees. I have ridden my bike well over 2,000 miles since I got it.
The 500-watt motor is powerful enough to help get me up the big Seattle-area hills I ride on, and the deluxe battery has taken me on trips of over 45 miles before recharging. This is even more impressive considering I weigh over 250 pounds!
I received an excellent pre-sale consultation from Bill, and Bill and Alex were great with initial support when my bike arrived. Since then, David an Eric have done well taking care of technical support when I have needed it.
If you are considering purchasing an electric bike, getting a quality bike that is powerful enough for your usage and weight is important. Equally important is buying it from a company whose employees are tasked with cheerfully providing the skilled support necessary for the bike. I have gotten all of this with my EVELO Aurora, so I strongly recommend EVELO and its bikes.
I absolutely love my Aurora. Since giving up my automobile, I rely on it as my primary form of transportation to and from work, to the pharmacy, train station, etc. I love the freedom that my EVELO gives me along with the the economy of not maintaining a car, not to mention the exercise I get with an electric-assist (I'm not as young as I used to be). Plus, it's just plain fun to ride!
Did I mention the support from EVELO? They're great. They respond rapidly and show that they really care for their customers. Try one. You'll love it.
