The New York Times

Elby partner Velofix recently got the spotlight in the NYT as one of the primary disruptors of the established bike shop model. Around here, we say that Elby’s the way toward’s a brighter, smarter future and we’re proud that our main retail partner is equally as innovative and promising.

Business Insider

Business Insider’s longtime cycling reporter Dan McMahon dragged us all over the five boroughs while he sung the praises of having an Elby in the big ol’ apple. He did a deep dive on the Elby’s features from the perspective of a lifelong urban bike commuter and lover of all things two-wheeled.

Outside magazine dropped by at Interbike to see what it was all about back in the early days of Elby. They didn’t even get a chance to ride it, but Outside was stoked based on looks alone!

Los Angeles Times

For us, an ebike is a obvious part of our daily lives. Sometimes we forget that the rest of the US isn’t quite as aware of how personal mobility is charging forward. Armed with an Elby, the LA Times got a taste of what the future looks like when we put aside our cars in favor of the best transportation technology can provide.

Peter Flax is no e-bike newbie. Having ridden plenty of our competitors, Flax had always felt the way most cyclists view electric bikes: Enjoyable but not for them. However, after putting in the time and miles on an Elby, it seems he may have changed his tune. Flax used his Elby to get to work, shedding 15 minutes from his commute. He also loved our throttle, enabling him to quickly get back to top speed crossing intersections. To get the full story, head over to Cyclingtips.com for Flax’s review.
