bionx has filed for bankruptcy
BionX International, maker of popular ebike conversion kits and motor systems for many ebikes, went into Receivership on February 27-28, 2018. It pains us to see a fellow business in the ebike industry go under. We're not sure of the reasons for this but it emphasizes the importance of choosing an electric bike manufacturer and motor system from a company with strong support and a successful history.
We occasionally receive criticism for only selling premium ebikes and not offering lower-priced imports. This BionX situation exemplifies one of the primary reasons why we choose to do this. Companies like Bosch, Shimano, Royal Dutch Gazelle, and Kalkhoff have a century of experience. These are companies that we can rely on to build great products and to be around to support their products for years to come.
There are many electric bikes on the market today with exciting new products being introduced all the time. We understand it can be difficult to navigate the deluge of ebike information and opinions. We're here to help.
While it is impossible to know for sure what will happen in the future, we can make some wise decisions by learning from the past. Electric bikes are a big investment and we want to make sure you are getting an ebike that will be worth your investment.
