On Balance Outdoor, a concept by Commute Connect, LLC, features a unique collection of inspired commuter transit solutions that are exciting to ride, good for the environment, and portable. We call them Rides, which includes a variety of human and electric powered personal transit devices. These cutting edge, US-designed products are gaining traction world-wide for the last few years, particularly on the West Coast and in Asian and European cities, and they are now cropping up all over the US. On Balance Outdoor offers a carefully chosen variety of devices you will not find anywhere else, and we have tested and commuted on everything we sell. Put our experience to work to weigh your options and to find the right Ride for your needs. Take a lesson and/or test drive one today! Our new location allows us to carry a larger variety of products, so please stay tuned on new product announcements. We welcome your feedback.
No more stolen bikes!
Make your commute to work or to the coffee shop fun and efficient. No more parking and no more worrying about a stolen bike. Just pick it up and walk it indoors. You now have a commuter companion, which as a conversation starter is “better than a puppy”! Taxi and parking fees not required!
While our folding bikes are great for the commute, they are also popular to take on vacation. We packed our electric powered products as carry-on luggage in airplanes. This gives “vacation” a whole set of new experiences as taxis may not be required.
Stay in shape!
Some may say that they would rather walk for their health than ride one of these unique products. We fully encourage all sorts of exercise. However, these products require core strength to ride and a blend of mind and body to balance and regulate. While it’s not the same sort of exercise, it’s core exercise and adds the thrill of the ride.
Stop in our store to see magical hand-painted helmets, by Belle Helmets, and a variety of handmade leather-and-wood bike accessories (such as a six-pack carrier and U-lock holder) by Walnut Studiolo.
Consultative sales and Service!
Our customers receive consultation in selecting their style of transportation and receive prompt service when required. We make it our business to know our products and the technology inside-out. We believe that our business is first about happy customers enjoying life, and secondly to deliver the best possible, green product.
Come See OnBalance Outdoor! It is an experience you won’t forget!
