Pete’s is owned and operated by Dean Keyek-Franssen and Chuck Ankeny, both crazy inventors/serial entrepreneurs whose careers collided completely by accident – or so it would seem - in mid-2009. When asked where the name Pete’s comes from, Chuck likes to tell the story that Dean wanted it to be called Dean’s Electric Bikes and Chuck wanted Chuck’s Electric Bikes. So we settled on Pete’s. That seems to make perfect sense to most people. Dean likes to tell it a bit differently. For Dean and brother Mark, a co-founder, it all started with Grampa Pete; a crazy inventor cum environmentalist who always had a better way to do things. However the story gets told, the vision is the same. Pete’s is on a mission to become the premier source for electric bikes, motorcycles, cars, trucks and charging solutions.
At Pete’s we are passionate about electric bikes. We have commuted by bicycle for years and understand the benefits of adding electric assist. We use what we sell. Our goal is to get you out of your car, enjoying fresh air and getting exercise while you accomplish all the running around of daily life. Think of all the trips to the grocery store, the hardware store, the video store… even your daily commute to work. Electric bikes turn errands into joy rides. Electric bikes do not take away from your daily exercise; they add to it. Our customers range from teenagers to grandparents. Riding couples refer to our bikes as the great equalizer, no longer is the stronger rider waiting for the other. Older customers are now enjoying longer rides in more varied terrain. Commuters are cutting their commute time by as much as half and arriving to work fresh and ready to go. Join the growing list of people making the world a cleaner place.
Pete's Electric Bikes is all about electric vehicles. We rent, service and sell electric bikes, motorcycles, cars and trucks as well as products designed to make living with electric vehicles easier. We strive to provide you with the best selection of products that provides the optimal balance of affordability, reliability, and performance. We use what we sell and if we won't use it we won't sell it.
Our stores are located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada; Boulder, Colorado; Wayzata, Minnesota and soon to open in Aspen, Colorado.
