The New World eBikes Story

       from Europe to the New World...       

New World eBikes got its start on a ski trip to British Columbia.  Two skiers, who also happen to be tandem bicycle riders had a tough time with the slushy conditions that day, which reminded them of the snow so often found back home on Mt Hood.  They persevered and had a great day, despite one of them falling four times and injuring a knee.  


The injured knee led to concerns about a tandem ride coming up in a few months.  The concerns led to investigations into how to electrify their tandem.  The investigations came up with nothing on how to mount a motor to the tandem, since the frame and fork dropouts on a tandem are a different size from single bikes.

Further research led to finding the Gepida Thoris electric tandem, and one was ordered from a bike retailer in Europe.  The Thoris proved to be outstanding in every regard, providing a very satisfying riding experience.  The additional power of the Bosch drive adds amazing flexibility, and can be tailored to the need of the riders and the condition of the terrain.

The features, quality and riding experience were so impressive that these two intrepid adventurers wanted to bring this outstanding product, in tandem and single bicycle form to the US, and New World eBikes began.  We now offer the Gepida ebike in all its various forms - mountain, city, trekking, cargo and tandem.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!
