Amego Review

Amego is a Canadian manufacturer of low-cost, high-efficiency electric bicycles founded in 2010 by businesswoman Virginia Block as a “clean and green” transportation solution. Her desire for a green transportation option that is highly efficient and yet remains affordable led to the development of Amego’s now extensive product line. 

Amego has enjoyed steady growth and increased acceptance in and beyond Canada in the few years following its establishment. Currently, Amego is one of Canada’s largest electric bicycle stores. They have developed strong and successful partnerships with other top electric bicycle manufacturers worldwide, such as Stromer, Gazelle, Rose & Muller, and so on. Although Amego serves as a retail sales and repair center for these brands, they also have their own extensive product line of quality electric bicycles.

The reason for Amego’s rapid growth and acceptance, however, goes beyond the production and distribution of high-quality electrical bicycles. The other aspect to this growth is that they have committed and expert shipping teams and customer relations teams that ensure customers’ needs are swiftly and thoroughly addressed, even if it means working overtime.

Amego’s Canada store is 533 Richmond St W #203, Toronto, ON M5V 3Y1, Canada. The store is open every day of the week so customers can get whatever they need. They also have a warehouse store located at 87 Wingold Ave. Unit 4, Toronto, ON, M6B 1P8, Canada. Amego provides free shipping to any location in Canada on all product orders above $1900
