Local Shops :  ****************************************************

Electric Bicycle Center This is by far the best place to buy an electric bicycle or electric scooter. Located in Fullerton CA, 2 miles down the street (east) from Myrons Mopeds, they are also known as Myrons Extreme Machines (MXM). Sam has sold and serviced over 10,000 2-wheelers, from mopeds and motorcycles in the 1980’s to go-peds and stand-up gas scooters in the 1990’s to electric bicycles and scooters in the 2000’s. Legendary Sam worked for Myron himself in the 1980’s. See more in Showcase/Shop Tour. They sell E-Moto, E-Zip, EG, Hebb and I-Zip electric bicycles, Go-Ped and E-Zip electric scooters, and Go-Ped push scooters. Rated A+ by BBB, and 5-star by Yelp. 

Note that Myrons Mopeds and Myrons Extreme Machines, both have the same first name, are on the same street, are in the same city, and have the same phone number except for the last digit. Despite all that in common, they are separate businesses, and often confused with one another. Believe it or not!

J and J Motorsports Inc Located in El Monte CA, they sell Lazer 4-stroke mopeds, scooters, and small motorcycles, all made in China. There are many merits to a four stroke, including: able to idle like a heart beat for long periods, better fuel economy, no surging (yang yang yang) when decelerating, they sound more pleasant and less chaotic, and they are able to meet emission standards with less catalyst in the exhaust than a two stroke would need. On the other hand, two strokes make way more power, weigh less, cost less, and are easier to service.
