Bicycle Retailer writes:
Currie Technologies will be stocking Best Buy with six different Izip models, ranging in price from $499-$2,000. The Southern California-based company will also provide Best Buy with two electric scooters at $299 and $599, according to Currie president Larry Pizzi.
Mr. Pizzi adds that his electric bikes will be sold in 20 stores at first, but that a "larger roll out" was possible for the holiday season.
No word yet on which specific Ultra Motor models will be sold, except that they will be part of the A2B line.
