NIK® was launched after years of installing and selling electric bike systems on or for every bike imaginable at EBO®. Never able to find that perfect e-bike, so we designed it ourselves and started NIK® e-bikes.
NIK® and EBO® were born out of curiosity and a never-ending love of the bicycle. Sitting in traffic in my car on the way to work was simply killing me. While bicycling to work was an option on some days, it wasn’t something I could do every morning because of the length of my commute and the things I often had to transport. My wife and I had also recently had a child and taking him and all of his stuff on long weekend bike rides was getting harder and harder as he got older. Also, having a reduced lung capacity from chemotherapy treatments scarring my lungs was not helping the situation. Finally, when my parents would come visit, they were limited on the distances they could ride a bike while touring the city with us.
All of these challenges around cycling sparked my interest in reading articles about the benefits of electric bikes. When I decided to outfit an old mountain bike I had sitting in the garage with an electric kit, I struggled to find good information that would help me select the right model for my needs. There didn’t seem to be anyone available to consult or shed light on my situation. I knew there was a better way.
With nineteen years experience as a Design and Manufacturing Engineer, I began evaluating and testing a multitude of electric bike systems, pushing them to their limits. After a rigorous, years-long process of testing and selecting the absolute best electric system available, Electric Bike Outfitters was born.
NIK® was launch after more than 10 years of installing and selling electric bike systems on or for every bike imaginable at EBO®. Never able to find that perfect e-bike, so we designed it ourselves and started NIK® e-bikes.
Today EBO has expanded into a larger warehouse and now started NIK e-bikes with what we have learned.

What our customers are saying
I am now into my third year on a EBO system, As a volunteer bike patrolman for the City of Lakewood Parks Department, I have put over 10,000 miles on the bike with very few problems. I had Jason do the install, And he did a beautiful job. I watched several. YouTube videos on battery maintenance, and I hope to get another year out of this one. I highly recommend electric bike Outfitters to everyone I meet.
We've sold a bunch of EBO electric bike systems over the years (and we only sell EBO now), and they have performed perfect for our customers. Easy install and an easy setup. The mileage has been wonderful and the batteries have held up to what EBO has said, and more!
The EBO team did an incredible job. Recommended the correct kit. Great job with installation. Rolled out a hundred miles over the last few days. Rock solid. Great engineering. Could not be happier.
Jason is awesome - very knowledgeable and helpful. If you are looking to upgrade your bike to an e-bike, Electric Bike Outfitters is the place!
EBO installed their EBO Burly Electric Bike Kit on my 2008 HP Velotechnik Scorpion on January 16,2019. Two months and 1000 miles later in some extreme weather conditions, I would like to say I have been extremely happy with this kits performance. I had purchased this system so that I would have a backup trike with ES to my other trike - HP Velotechnik Scorpion fs 26 S-Pedelec with Go SwissDrive system. Have been having issues with my Go SwissDrive system and if not resolved soon, will plan to convert this 26” Trike with a EBO system – considering the EBO Front Range 2.0 with a slightly more powerful motor since this other trike has the 26” wheel instead of a 20” wheel.
NIK e-bikes with the EBO system are amazing with amazing support , because NIK/EBO was a motor company first!
