Business Review: NorthTowne Cycling and Fitness + Kalkhoff Impulse 8

Review of an Iowa Bike Shop

Cedar Rapids, IA

NorthTowne Cycling and Fitness

My Rating: 5 Stars 5 Stars

I found NorthTowne from Google Maps of all places. Des Moines electric bike selections are pathetic, so I made my search a little wider. Nearly had to order a bike from San Francisco. Shipping a bike that you can't test first is crazy, so I was extremely excited to speak to the folks at NorthTowne. I sent them an email with everything I was looking for and they gave me valuable feedback that helped narrow down my options. I then read reviews and watched videos on Electric Bike Review to follow up.

Derek, the owner, followed up with me in a very timely manner and went out of his way to look into the Kalkhoff line I'm interested in. He's even considering bringing in the entire line! I couldn't be any more excited or grateful to find this shop. I'm disappointed they are not located in Des Moines, but he says the drive is only about 2 hours and right off the interstate. If you can fly, they are about 5 minutes away from the local municipal airport. So in about a week, I'll be headed to checkout the bike I've been mooning over and hopefully have my new ride in less than two weeks.

Oh they also participate in a no-interest for 1 year financing program, if you're interested in that, it seems to be kind of hidden on their site. Derek, told me how to get to it or I never would have known. It's the photo in the top right of the site.

I highly recommend this place. Everything has gone really well so far. I'll let you know what I think of the location after my visit and maybe even write about it on my blog.
