In 1980, a group of engineers started discussions in Barcelona about the role of technology in society, focusing on ecology, renewable energy, the environment and transportation. Among these issues was the first proposal of a bicycle lane in Barcelona.
In 1981, 8 engineers from different specialties founded Ecotècnia S. Coop. in Barcelona. This is how a team of people came to be, a pioneer on a global level with a company that continues to develop technology in renewable energies in Barcelona, with more than 400 people.
Currently, environmental, social practical and technological factors are once again putting in crisis the use of urban space which is becoming more and more polluted and overpopulated. The evolution in batteries, electronics and control have made it possible to use the electric bicycle as a means of urban transport, with a fundamental role in the design of cities and the habits of their inhabitants. More bicycles are needed.
Oh!bike brings together a passion for cycling with a long career in other industrial sectors and especially in renewable energies.
The team of professionals has grown with the aim of designing and manufacturing unique and differentiated electric bicycles in the sector, promoting local industrial capacity and proximity. We are currently preparing the premises in Barcelona where all the pieces will be assembled.
We have been working for more than 3 years looking for a light, easy bike, with an attractive design personally taking care of even the smallest details. We have tested the first bikes and have obtained very good results and very favorable opinions.
It's time to make it happen and we want to launch the manufacture of the first 100 bikes. For this we will need to order the materials, the preparation of the premises in Barcelona where we will assemble the bikes as well as the expansion of our team and the development of e-commerce.
