Pedego Electric Bikes Bring Even More Fun to the Newport Pier!

Father-son Team helps bike owners enjoy more smiles per mile

IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 6, 2014 — A year ago, father and son team Kent and Chasen McNaughton fell in love with Pedego® Electric Bikes. Pedego’s powerful, stylish Comfort Cruisers helped them slice through headwinds at the beach and put them in control of their biking adventures in Newport Beach. They also noticed that while they were having a great time on their electric bikes,  other people were struggling on their standard bikes against the headwinds… and having no fun at all. Another thing the McNaughtons love is the Newport Pier — with its surrounding neighborhood that boasts surf, sand and sunny bike paths.

Chasen McNaughton, who owns a beach equipment rental shop at the pier, quickly recognized the huge potential for Pedego electric bikes at the Newport Pier. “Our location is in the heart of the largest bike ownership and rental market in Orange County,” he said. “Now, even more people will be able to enjoy the fun of biking in Newport.” Kent is proud of his son’s ability to provide excellent customer service, even in a crowded shop. “Everyone rides away with a smile,” he said.

The younger McNaughton discovered Pedego Electric Bikes while he was researching the burgeoning electric bike industry. He found Pedego electric bikes to be the best in quality and price with exceptional customer service. Reading the company’s stated value of, “Delight the customers,” he knew he found something fantastic that would be worth sharing with the community.  Recently opened, Pedego Newport Pier offers rentals and self-guided tours on Pedego electric bicycles as well as sales of these popular bikes. Free test rides are also available.

The store offers a variety of Pedego brand electric bicycles. There’s the colorful selection of Comfort Cruisers known for their style and relaxing ride. City Commuters offer a sleek Dutch street style bike that also benefits from Pedal Assist to accompany the throttle that is basic on all Pedego bikes. The Interceptor is a sporty cruiser boasting 48 powerful volts and Pedal Assist to flatten hills and make headwinds a breeze. Then, there’s the off-road rugged Trail Tracker that carries riders to new adventures, and the amazing Ford Super Cruiser offering power and style combined. The McNaughtons are excited about the variety of choices in Pedego bikes.  “These truly are the best electric bicycles,” says Kent. “And we know they’ll delight our customers.”

The Pedego Newport Pier store is open seven days per week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Factory-trained sales staff is onsite to answer any questions, every day.
