Matt and Jodie here from Oregon E-bikes and we are here live with our new rental fleet of Gazelle Ultimate T10 electric bikes.
We actually got to put them to the test last night. We took a team ride out to the Mosier Twin Tunnels Trail. That's a beautiful, 5-mile stretch of car-free riding up on the plateau overlooking the Columbia River.
It's about a five minute ride from here, so that's where 99% of our renters choose to go because it's just that much of a crowd pleaser and we love it too.
Matt: I think it's one of the
top five e bike rides in the country. It got rated.
Jodie: So come out and try the trail, and you'll be especially stoked to try it on the Gazelle Ultimate T10.
Matt: Sure will. We tested many rental bikes trying to see which bike we want to choose for this year's rental bike and we chose the Gazelle Ultimate T10 for a couple reasons.
One, the most comfortable ride at this price range. A big part of it is the way Gazelle integrated the battery motor and this step-through frame. You know it's still a very strong stiff frame so you get a really steady smooth ride dampened by this front shock here integrated into it.
Ergon Comfort Grips - super comfy. Easy on and off for customers with that step through frame. And just a really comfortable sitting position that you can adjust really easily.
And everyone last night - they just kept raving about how, wow, they were
really impressed. This, for a rental bike, it's amazing, and for a bike if you're
thinking of purchasing - great value for the money, especially with this new
Jodie: Yeah one of the notable pieces of feedback from last night was how smooth, and also powerful, this Gen 3 Bosch Performance Line Motor is. That, equipped with the battery that you mentioned here, it's got a hefty range 30 to 80 miles - somewhere in that realm.
So whether it's our renters that are going for the day or any of you riders out there that are looking for something to commute on or recreate on, it will have a really nice combination that also gives plenty of power up the steep hills.
Matt: For sure. And I think the value for the money - you've got Shimano XT Deore derailer and shifters, so really nice shifting. Integrated front and rear lights. One of the nicest
rear racks in the industry that you can easily strap things on top or on the side.
Integrated fenders, front and rear, and it comes with a cafe lock so if you're just stopping in for a quick coffee or something and want to just have it locked out front.
That's integrated with it.
So value for the money - incredible comfort amazing one of the best e bikes we have going this year.
Jodie: You can tell that we like it but don't take our word for it. Come and try them. Give us a call and we'll help you out on the Gazelle Ultimate T10.
Gasoline powered vehicles will disappear just like the dinosaurs. It will probably take decades, but it’s gonna happen. Yes, electric cars are becoming more and more popular, and that’s great! But we are an ebike dealership - hint, hint, nudge, nudge - so, with that said…

Our Service Manager and Wheelie Extraordinaire, Evan (Instagram @_skid_more_), puts his e-bikes through the paces. Between commuting to the shop year-round, hunting down the most stunning street art in Portland, and sharing his love for two wheels with his kiddo, he had a lot of boxes to tick when it came to choosing his next ride...
These decks are built very well, but the installation is pretty time consuming / painful. For the screw on the front side, you'll need a 13mm socket with a long extension bar to reach the inside of the nut - not the 13mm open wrench listed in the manual. Another downside is that the slots on the deck have sharp edges - I wish they could round them off a little.
Purchased a new cargo e-bike and was very pleased with the process from start to finish. I needed to arrange pick-up or delivery and Brendan was super helpful sharing options and getting me all of the information I needed. Great deal, great and friendly service, what's not to like??
