Our Story

Greetings, fellow e-bikers.

My name is Francis Lee.  I am the Founder and Owner of SV Bikes.
The impetus for SV Bikes  was my lifelong passion for extreme sports -- including, for example, an early love affair with skateboarding. 
A second driver was my desire to develop expertise in battery management as well as electronic component design, engineering, prototyping, troubleshooting, and manufacturing. 

Besides building electric bikes, I was fortunate enough to serve on engineering teams at a variety of high-tech companies to build circuit boards, power supplies, batteries, and controllers.  This hands-on experience, combined with the expert mentoring I received, was a priceless addition to my university training.
I began building e-bikes mostly for the fun of it.  I wanted to create a thrilling e-bike experience rivaling that of a dirt bike.  From an engineering standpoint, this presented a formidable challenge. Fortunately, I was up to the task.

Soon enough, friends and family began asking me to build bikes for them. After analyzing the competition, I concluded that other e-bikes on the market were lacking in key areas such as safety, range, torque, speed, handling, and ergonomics -- both on and off road.
With these parameters in mind, I set about to create a better e-bike. After multiple iterations, I succeeded.

Through word-of-mouth, I started selling my e-bikes.  Word spread.  Simultaneously, I bootstrapped my own e-bike company.
As maker and owner, I know my e-bike inside-out. After all, it's my brain child.  It's also the result of tens of thousands of hours in tinkering and fine-tuning.  I know precisely what it takes to service it.
It's one reason among many why my customers trust that I'll stand behind my work.

So if you're in the market for a best-in-class electric bike, please contact us to schedule a test ride.  We have two models to choose from, each at an affordable price.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards,
