In following other threads, I see various brands that are "similar" to the XB bikes sold by X-Treme. Apparently, "X-Treme" is an American brand name for a bike that is manufactured in China and is also sold in the U.S. under various other brand names, possibly with some slight variations. Is there a comprehensive list or directory somewhere of these different bikes, their different brand names, including the names of American or Canadian companies that import them, sell them, and also provide parts and service? Surely, there must be more than a handful of businesses that import, sell and fully support these types of bikes, rather than the majority who just act as drop shippers for X-Treme. Specifically, I'm looking for a dealer and service center located somewhere in New England.

There are dozens of manufactures of e-bikes. Some are OME others are just assemblers buying bodies, frames and components from other manufacturers. The best listing that I know of is the Alibaba site. This is the main site that connects to a lot of the importers.

Re: Importers, Parts and Service

Thanks for the information. That gave me enough names to "Google" and find some area dealers and service centers.
