Area 13 - Electric Bikes that are out of this world.

The Fit Freedom Ebike - Jim Turner with OptiBike

Posted by on

Hey Everybody! Welcome back to another episode of the Bolton Ebikes Podcast. We've had more guests lately, which is something I'm excited about is meeting other people in the bike industry, talking to people. A lot of times it seems like I'm talking to somebody new. That's just starting something.

You know, whether it's a website or a blog or a YouTube channel. But occasionally we come across somebody who's actually been in the e-bike space much longer than we have. So today is one of those days. I've got Jim Turner, the president and founder of OptiBike with us. Once again, you're listening to the Bolton Ebikes Podcast.

In today’s episode you’ll learn more about:

  • How Jim’s journey started in 1996 with ebikes, when you were comparing 24 volt systems, lead acid batteries, brushed motors. And how his background as an engineer fueled his passion for figuring things out with ebikes. 
  • The health benefits Jim has found that ebikes bring to everyone and why he is so passionate about ebikes. 
  • How he came up with OptiBike and why it is different. 
  • How Jim’s work has helped so many people get back in shape and have fun doing it. 
  • How his education and experience helped fuel a series of redesigns before he got the result he was looking for. 
  • And so much more! 

Thank you to everybody listening to this podcast and being here with Jim, from OptiBike.

  • Finally, a podcast that speaks to me on my level. I am an old overweight disabled veteran, the e-bike is my exercise, weight loss, pain-relieving champion! Thanks, Kyle for this great informative podcast!
