JUNTO Electric Bikes will be bringing their super cool, easy to ride, family of bikes for you to test ride at the Faire! In this week’s spotlight, Alec Powell, Director of Operations and Customer Service, took some time out of his busy schedule to answer our questions.
We make custom designed Pedal Assisted Electric Bicycles; both a commuter bike and a utility/cargo bike
We make our bikes for everyone! But specifically we are making them for urbanites who are looking for a viable replacement for — or alternative to — their car. We believe ebikes are the next wave in urban transportation and we are poised to help facilitate that Movement!
We are located right here in Philadelphia. We have an office in Fishtown/Kensignton on 2nd st.
We are inspired by the prospect of increasing people’s mobility and making our planet’s future a little brighter. By providing a fun, relatively affordable and appealing alternative to driving, our bikes make it easier for people to get outside and feel more connected to the world around them. As our cities continue to grow in population, traffic, pollution and stress are becoming increasingly severe. Our bikes help to reduce each of these things by getting people out of their cars, reducing their carbon footprints and putting a smile on their face because they’re so fun to ride!
We also feel a great sense of duty to our generation to aid in the fight against climate change. As a recent college graduate, I am looking down the road at a future that can seem grim at times. We know climate change is already happening and for the life of me I can’t seem to understand why no one is doing anything about it. If we can help offset our carbon footprint by even just a little bit while providing riders with a sense of confidence, connection and infinite possibilities our bikes provide, I think we’ve done something amazing. The promise of change is what drives us. The promise of a brighter future for all of us is what keeps us working.
Our favorite thing about the Faire is that people come together to celebrate making things. We feel that too many people simply consume and forget how much time and effort goes into creating the things they love. It is about coming together as a community of artisans and creatives to celebrate the beauty of the work they make. This is a place where ideas can be exchanged and people can connect and enjoy each other’s creations.
