In this episode, we interview Thad Oviatts and Mark Oviatts, the Son and Father team behind #ParkentCycles. According to PRwirenews.com, "The global electric bikes market size was valued at $16.34 billion in 2017, and is expected to reach $23.83 billion by 2025, registering a CAGR of 4.9% from 2018 to 2025."
Parkent Cycles produces electric bike charging stations that also secure your expensive asset. Owners of electric bikes do not get to fully enjoy their bikes because of "range anxiety," the fear that your bike will lose its charge before you reach your destination. E-Bike owners also have another form of anxiety, "Theft Anxiety." According to Electricbikereview.com, "The average cost of an electric bike is $4,750, ranging from roughly $1,900 to $8,000." Unfortunately, most bike locks are easily broken. Parkent Cycles solves the e-Bike theft problem. The company's 200lb charging station has metal arms that secure the bike while it charges.
