About Us

Voltaire Cycles is a subsidiary of the Electric Spokes Company, a specialty retailer for electric bicycles, scooters, and accessories. Voltaire Cycles franchise owners are independent businesses which provide the very best in electric mobility sales and service in their communities. This is an exciting time to be thinking about joining one of the biggest growth industries of the next decade and we are excited that you are here!

The established success of Voltaire Cycles franchises is based upon something that no one else currently has in this rapidly expanding industry- our shops are not limited to a single brand or technology. We consistently introduce exciting new brands and retire older ones, sometimes even with a tinge of sadness.


This is what makes our franchise opportunity more attractive than any other e-bike retail sales model. Our franchise system provides for a broad range of manufacturers, products, and accessories, enabling any new business owner the flexibility to carefully tailor their inventory and secure the products most attractive to their demographics. Why lock in with a brand specific business strategy that only permits you to sell their models and at their prices?

Wouldn’t it be better to have the flexibility to sell most all of the major brands and to stock your store with the best selling models for your area? A sole-proprietorship can have low initial investments, but how would you put something like this all together? And how much would that really cost? Likewise, a dealership or consignment contract may be very appealing because of the relatively low costs of “getting-in” but how much choice do you have as an operator/dealer if things go soft? If the ship goes down, do you go with it? Durability can be a key to success.

This is why our franchise system is so attractive. We have designed the soup-to-nuts business for opening your first e-bike franchise, choosing the right inventory, setting up your service area, hiring the right technicians, setting up your e-commerce website, and training you to be the very best in your region.

We should know, we’ve already built one ourselves: The Electric Spokes Company!
