OHM Cycles To Give Away The Ultimate Bike Accessory

May 23 2012 | Latest News

VANCOUVER, BC – Electric bike manufacturer OHM Cycles announces a contest that will give its new and existing Facebook fans the chance to win a bike-changing accessory. The prize – one Burley Travoy Trailer – was awarded a EUROBIKE Gold Award in 2010 for its innovative design that turns any bike into a safe, hassle-free way to haul and transport almost anything, from a change of clothes for the office, to a week’s worth of groceries, to up to 60 lb. of cargo.

Launched at the start of Bike to Work Week last week, the contest will run until July 15. It is open to residents of Canada and the United States, ages 19 and up. To enter, people need only “like” the OHM Cycles Facebook page and enter their email address to subscribe to OHM’s online newsletter. After entering, fans who share the contest and get their friends to enter earn two additional entries to win the trailer.

“The Travoy increases the versatility and usefulness of any bike it is attached to, but its potential goes through the roof when it’s hitched to one of our electric commuter models,” says Michael DeVisser, CEO of OHM Cycles. “The electric assist provided by our BionX motor makes heavy loads feel much lighter, so you can ride faster and with less effort than with a normal bike. Many of our customers have replaced their cars with OHMs, and the Travoy is like a car trunk they can add on when necessary to carry heavier loads.

OHM’s hybrid pedal-assist bikes come in two model lines: an electric commuter bike and an all-terrain electric mountain bike. Powered by a powerful BionX motor, it makes all bike rides – whether they involve hilly routes or big loads – easier and more enjoyable, while allowing riders to control the amount of work they put in.

The Burley Travoy Trailer comes with a basic cargo bag (which also stores the folded Travoy), tie-down straps for bulkier cargo, and a hitch assembly. Bags for grocery shopping and other functions and features can also be purchased to customize the Travoy to fit different lifestyles.
