Interbike 2014: Motiv Electric Bikes

We’ve been friends with Motiv Electric Bikes for the past few years and we’ve seen them grow from day one. So it brings us pleasure to see them grow their model line. Check out the latest offering from Motiv.

This is called the Sherpa. Appropriately named for it’s ability to carry all sorts of stuff. That front rack/basket is mounted directly to the frame. Which means more stable riding and none of that front wheel flopping around when from your heavy basket.

Check out this ginormous basket! It’s HUGE!

Again…a nice rack! The Motiv Sherpa can become your next cargo bike…minus that extra long bike length.

Next up is the Motiv Stout. This is their entry into the Fat Electric Bike segment.

If you’ve never ridden a fat tired bike, you’ll be quite surprised how well they roll. They’re actually very smooth and you really don’t feel the weight of those big tires. I can’t even begin to imagine how fun an electric fat tire bike would be!

Interbike 2014: Papillionaire

We met the super cool folks of Papillionaire. They were showcasing their fancy city bikes.

I’m a HUGE fan of mixte bikes. This one is reallllly PRETTY! Comes with fenders, rear rack and even leather wrapped grips. Looks like something our readers would consider a real “commuter bike.”

Interbike 2014: ODI Grips

We noticed that bright florescent colors were quite popular this year. Even the grips that ODI offered were pretty bright!

But if that’s too bright for you, they have some “commuter” friendly grips. Forgot the model name but these offered more comfort than their standard grips.

They also have some grips that resemble the soles of Vans shoes.

Interbike 2014: UPON Bike Tent

Saw this cool bike tent that uses your bicycle as an anchor point. Comes with an air mattress! I figured we have some readers who are big into bike touring/ camping and would probably use something like this. The other selling point of this tent is that if your bike moves while you’re in the tent, you’ll feel it right away. Which means you can prevent a bike theft of scare away a grizzly.
