Electric Bike Demo Day

Reno Bike Project is now proud to offer electric bicycles from the Toronto-based bicycle company, Opus, for demo and sale. We envision a future where more motorists leave their cars at home and ride bikes instead, and we think embracing e-bikes moves us in that direction.

We know e-bikes are as new to many in our community as the are to us, so we invite you to form your own impressions with a free e-bike demo on August 12, from 10a to 1p at UNR’s Fleischmann Planetarium. Come take a ride on the newest e-bike technology, and experience the future of bicycle travel. We will also be offering a Demo Day discount of 10% ($280) off e-bike sales that day. RSVP on Facebook!

The models we currently offer for demo and sale are the Opus WKND flat-bar road bike design and the CONNECT city bike design with a step-through frame, euro style.
