Suburbanbikes is the Peninsula's go-to source for ebikes for San Mateo, Burlingame and beyond. Our ebikes are the best on the market and we've tested them for the long haul. Each bike is selected for their reliability, over all weight and rideability, comfort and power.
If you are in the market for an electric bicycle, we believe, the very first piece of advice you should heed is to avoid the cheap Chinese re-branded products you can find on ebay and amazon that are sold without a local distribution network and without a solid warranty. Time and again we have had to try to rescue owners of these poorly made designed-to-break products that lure customers to them with their low prices only to find that not only must they invest hundreds more into trying to fix the bike, but even after that, the bike is not fixable for any price and must be thrown away.
You work hard for your money and we believe your electric bike should be as reliable as your shaver or your vacuum cleaner. It should turn on and go when you need it to and operate trouble free.
This is the primary factor used to decide what we sell or don't sell in our store. As a company that prides itself on our reputation, as well as our good prices, we want our customers coming back to us for more products, not unhappy faces with broken products.
Our Ebikes are available for test ride in our Redwood City or San Francisco stores, where you can do all the "research" you want.
Bikes & Bike Stuff are among the top things you can gift to any one on your list. Think of it- even if they are not currently a cyclist, getting some one back into cycling could be the greatest gift they could receive this Christmas.
Biking is all around good for every one. It's healthy. It's good for your city, town or village.
First up on a gift ideas list for a cyclist should be, of course, a new bike!
Getting a new bike for Christmas brings us back to the days when we were a kid. What a great feeling to get new transportation via a shiny new bicycle.
We have bicycles for all ages and all riding abilities. Bikes for the whole family, for friends and parents or a boss.
Dig a little deeper:
For a youth, Fixed gear track bikes are still very popular with young kids. Bright colors. Simple mechanics. Light weight and easy to customize. Fixed gear bikes are a favorite mode of transportation for kids. We sell Leader, FUJI, Fyxation and Felt fixed gear bikes and these are very solid affordable bike options.
For a wife or mom. Depending on her level of fitness, a common bike for a wife or mom could be a hybrid bike like a Felt Path, or a Marin dual sport bike, or something similar from Fuji. These are easy to ride, versatile bikes for all riding abilities. For less aggressive riding, you may want to get her a beach cruiser. We sell Felt and 3G beach cruisers.
For a dad or husband. Men like road bikes and mountain bikes, as well as cruisers. Know your guy's tastes and know your size and we can find a good bike.
If your friend is an avid rider, we've got high end bikes too like the higher end road bikes, triathlon, cyclocross and mountain bikes we sell.
For Grandpa and Grandma. We sell electric bikes, which older folks tend to enjoy. We also sell vintage styled cruisers and so forth.
If your cyclist already has the bike of their dreams, they would love accessories. Things like a new helmet, or new grips or grip tape, or a new seat are great gifts. New riding clothing like a new jersey, shorts or socks.
Suburbanbikes also stocks the full range of ABUS bike locks from Germany. We don't sell our ABUS locks online because, we feel, we'd be just another site selling ABUS locks online. But, you can find the full range of ABUS lock products in either our Redwood City or San Franisco stores.
For the hard core rider, why not grab them new tires? Tires are a wonderful gift for any one who rides a lot and likes a fresh set of rubber on their bike.

BIONX makes some excellent e-bike conversion kits and our mechanic staff is well versed in all aspects of set-up and tuning of said set-ups.
The BIONX system is affordable and well made. These are pedalec systems that let you pedal along with the assist of the rear wheel to keep you moving up nasty hills or through a headwind or just to be beat time.
As an authorized BIONX dealer and bicycle dealer, we are able to combine a brand new bike and e-bike kit into one great little package. Like our Felt E-Mountain Bike based on the SIX 80 MTB. It features a light weight frame and it's ready for the trail. Or, if you are a commuter, we offer a great light weight commute bike option too with the FUJI Absolute hybrid bike.
Besides being a great e-bike option for any one, the BIONX kits are ideal for any one who may consider e-biking an shorter term option. Many of our e-bike customers come to us with the intent of getting back into riding, for a number of reasons. Many are ditching their cars and aren't yet in shape enough to get out their and commute on a standard bike, so an e-bike is in their sites. Or, other times, customers are recouping from an accident or surgery and want to get on a bike as therapy but don't yet have the muscle strength needed to keep the bike to speed.
If you just want one bike, rather than owning an e-bike and a regular bike, the BIONX kits are excellent choices. Ride your bike to work with your assist motor and as you get in better shape and used to commuting you can covert back to your normal bike if you want to.
Another advantage of boing with the BIONX kit is that it allows you to mount your system to any bike you want, allowing you to make a very light weight bike, that in the end will be more pedalable than a heavier frame. Generally, the lighter the frame, the more expensive it is and many e-bike manufacturers try to keep the cost of the bikes down by including a heavier frame.
The BIONX kits allow any one interested in building out a custom "performance e-bike" to really dial in the bets frame, the best components and so forth, just as they would a standard bike.
Some of our recent builds:
For our SFBike membership we donated a Vanmoof bicycle for auction at their Winterfest event which is where SFBike raises a lot of its money for the rest of the year.
We were stoked to find out that the winner of our Vanmoof bike at the auction was a guy who worked for Tesla, a company we admire for helping to make EV cars mainstream and cool.
Here is posing with his new Vanmoof 5.1 bike. The 5.1 is a single speed cruiser with a built in Abus chain lock and built in Phillips lights, front and rear.
This bike will be great for bombing around the Tesla factory and office complex.
If you ride a bike and live in San Bruno, Millbrae or South City, we'd like to be your bike shop. Your choices for a bike shop are next to nil. And, as underserved as your area is, there are plenty of bike riders who need a bike shop to rely on. We can help.
We offer great prices on bikes and parts and our service department is one of the best on the Peninsula. We serve all of San Mateo county and the greater Bay Area and customers visit our store from all over the bay.

Suburbanbikes / Motostrano is now an official sponsor of SFBIKE.ORG and to kick of our sponsorship partnership we donated a VANMOOF for auction at the SFBIKE Winterfest event last night. Fun times. It's always a pleasant site to watch people interact with the incredible, the amazing Vanmoof bicycle. Unlike any other bicycle any of the other shops brought to the event, we were proud to offer a bike of unique style and features.
The Vanmoof bike caught many eyes and produced many oohs and aaahs and question marks and ideas. The Vanmoof is, after all, more than just a bicycle.
These are bikes that call to mind a spirit of creativity that is ideal for San Francisco riding in every way.
This is part of the reason why the Vanmoof is so intriguing. This was a fun event and we look forward to helping many many San Francisco Bicycle Coalition members in the years to come. We also hope that the bike auction raised plenty of cash for the group
Reason 1. We like ebikes! We specialize in Ebikes and it's one of our core focuses. A lot of bike shops work on bikes. A lot of ebike shops say they work on ebikes. Most traditional bike shops don't have a lot experience with ebikes. Most ebike shops don't have a lot of experience with ebikes. Our mechanics and staff have a lot of experience with both ebikes and standard bikes. This translates directly to our work on your ebike.
Reason 2. We're ebike dealers and we're regular bike dealers too. A bike shop that focuses sole on one or the other is limited in terms of the parts they have access to and the bikes they have worked on. We are authorized dealers of the top brands of ebike and we're able to get parts for most brands of ebike and regular bike.
Reason 3. We do bikes with and without motors. Over 20 years combined experience in bicycles, motorcycles and other modes of 2-wheel transport. There's a lot of enthusiast business interest in ebikes and with that comes a lot of inexperience. We're experienced.
Reason 4. We're friendly and want to help. Our staff is friendly and helpful. A lot of bike shops are staffed by grumpy bike people or bike snobs. We're not that.
Reason 5. We have 2 locations in the Bay Area to serve you and just may open another one soon! Convenience. If you live in San Francisco or the North Bay you can visit our SF store. If you live on the Peninsula or the South Bay you can visit our Redwood City location
Reason 6. We can pick up and drop off your bike if needed! We have a truck! A small fee may apply for pick up and delivery.
Reason 7. We can get the job done. If we can't we'll be upfront about it. We can't fix everything and many ebikes just can't be fixed, either because parts are no longer available, or, the bike isn't made to be repaired, as is often the case with inexpensive Chinese-made ebikes that come to the US market via Ebay and other exclusively online channels.
Reason 8. We are reliable. We say what we do, mean and so forth.
Reason 9. We are trust worthy. We are honest and charge you for the work we do and if we can offer a better deal we will.
Reason 10. We are serious about ebikes like you. We ride ebikes. We commute on them and we recreate on them. We also ride regular bikes!
There's more reasons, but we'll let you find out.
We fix and service all brands and models. We are dealers for A2B, BH EasyMotion, Stromer, Currie, Eflow, Izip, Juiced, Stealth and a bunch of others!
