EZ Green Bikes, located at 34193 Golden Lantern, opened in 2009.
With gas prices rising from 2008 to 2009, owner Robbie Villanueva felt it was time to introduce electric bicycles to the south Orange County area. At the time, there were no local suppliers of reasonably priced, electric bicycles in the area and Villanueva wanted to promote cycling and encourage every person to live a green lifestyle for the greater good.
EZ Green Bikes provides their customers with the latest technology including the use of lithium-ion batteries and offers bikes sales and rentals. The store stocks a number of bike models including beach cruisers, commuter bikes, scooters, tricycles and sport bikes. Customers are also allowed and encouraged to test ride bikes before they rent or purchase, to make sure they are selecting the perfect ride.
In addition to selling bikes manufactured by other companies, EZ Green Bikes builds its own line of bicycles, which feature options that are often not found on other models, including disc brakes, LCD displays, peddle and throttle assist, front suspension, Kevlar lined puncture resistant tires and large, lightweight lithium-ion batteries.
EZ Green Bikes also offers service and maintenance and sells electric-conversion kits. The shop also sells accessories including helmets, locks, rear carrier racks, bags, tires, lights and more.
As a commuter cyclist himself, Villanueva prides himself on offering quality products, customer service and knowledge. He brings this firsthand knowledge to his customers and into the development of his bikes. This customer service and knowledge allows customers to feel welcome and know that they are getting the exact bike that is right for them.
