E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
Hey guys, Dustin here, CEO of Sixthreezero. Today, we're going to be talking about electric bikes made in the USA. Stick around.
Okay. So today, we're going to be talking about electric bikes that are made in the USA, but before we do that, click that Subscribe button below, and stay in tune with all the content we're putting out everything that's happening at Sixthreezero, and the weekly giveaways that we're doing on our social media. Subscribe below so you can hear about it. We're giving away bikes, accessories, a whole lot of things.
Now, let's jump into electric that are made in the USA. I see a lot of conversation and a lot of questions around bikes that are made in the USA, products that are made in the USA, in particular, electric bikes that are made in the USA. Now, I can tell you I don't know every single brand and every single bike company that exists out there. I'm just giving you my knowledge and what I know about the bike industry, and from what I see in the electric bike industry right now, there are very few, if any, electric bikes that are currently made in the USA.
Now, I do see a few companies out there and a few factories that are making strides in bringing electric bike production to the US, but I will say there's a difference between the word "made in the USA," and the word "assembled in the USA." There are two different connotations to that. "Made in the USA," you have to actually make a certain percentage of the bike in the US, to get the label Made in the USA.
"Assembled in the USA" is simply importing the components and assembling them in the USA. So when something is assembled in the USA, most times, you're not going to get a product that much different than if that bike was actually assembled in another country, and imported to the US. Made in the USA is truly 60% or more of that product was made in the USA, and you can actually have the label Made in the USA. So that's one thing I will just say, if you do find an e-bike and it says "Something in the USA," be careful to look for "Made in the USA," versus "Assembled in the USA," if you're truly, truly looking for something, again, made in the USA.
Now, as I've said, I can see that there's a trend towards this becoming more of a thing in the US. There are several companies out there looking to set up factories. We ourselves are interested in being a part of that onshoring, it's called, meaning bringing the production back to the US. It hasn't been something that's been big in the standard bicycle world, just because of the price points, and the labor required, the cost of labor, but for e-bikes, it seems like there is a market and an opportunity to bring it back to the US, because of the price, and the consumers, and what consumers are willing to pay for an electric bike versus a regular bike
Now, in terms of made in the USA electric bikes, as of now, I do not know of any electric bikes that have the label Made in the USA. Forgive me if they exist. If they do, please comment below, tell me about them. But from what I know, I do not know of any that are currently made in the USA. Most electric bikes, still to this day, and I say "most," are still coming from overseas. Now, this is definitely changing and everybody's looking to source parts from other places, however, a lot of the bikes that even have a label of Assembled in the USA for e-bikes, are still importing parts from overseas. You're going to see a lot of the same motors, a lot of the same brakes, componentry, things of that nature, and that's really the challenge in bringing electric bikes back to be made in the USA. It's not the actual assembly, it's the manufacturing of all the components. It's the motors, the batteries, even the bike frames, everything.
So that's really why the transition of bringing bike production from overseas back to the US is not necessarily complicated, it's just going to take a long time, as the US has not had infrastructure for that sort of production in many years. And so, this whole kind of notion of onshoring and bringing back production to the US is definitely new within the last five to 10 years, and I think we're going to see it develop more and more.
So again, if you out there know of e-bike companies made in the USA, please comment below, let me know. The other thing I'll say real quick about Sixthreezero is we do import our bikes. We do all the design here in California, our own proprietary designs, specs, everything is proprietary to our company. But again, we are also importing components, and using a lot of the same components of all the other competitors out there, with our future goals of bringing certain models to the US, so we can also have a made in the USA product. And our goal, like I said, is not to have assembled in the USA, but to have made in the USA.
So I hope that helps. I hope that answers some questions. If you do know of some bikes that have the label of Made in the USA, electric bike companies, please comment below. I would love to hear.
