About Us

NYCeWheels specializes in alternative transportation. That means folding bikes, electric bikes, and kick scooters. You may enjoy gliding from point A to B in new ways, using means that are environmentally friendly, healthy, efficient, and affordable. Electric and folding bikes, motorized and kick scooters can expand your mobility and save time and money. Where storage space, portability, steep inclines and distance were once discouraging factors, our innovative and proven products open up new possibilities for getting around.

Try a folding bike, electric bike, or kick scooter for yourself!

We invite you to transform the way you move around and perhaps in the process also your life, others and your communities.

NYCeWheels is a retail shop in the Yorkville section of Manhattan's Upper East Side, founded by Bert Cebular in October of 2001.

Over the years NYCeWheels has become as a leader in alternative transportation specializing in portable, healthy and fun products. We began with just electric scooters and now have expanded our stock to a large selection of unique electric and human powered bikes, folding bikes and kick scooters.

We only carry a selection of the best products available

We carry high quality products, which have been thoroughly tested and carefully selected by the NYCeWheels staff. We strive to continuously learn what is reliable, practical, and effective for commuters and recreational riders alike. Whether you'll be traveling through bustling city streets, sprawling suburbs or rural areas, we may have the product for you.

NYCeWheels' customers have found that folding bikes, kick scooters, electric scooters and electric bicycles are viable forms of transportation.

Get involved with us at

NYCeWheels exhibits in green and mainstream transportation festivals throughout the Northeast and is an active member of Transportation Alternatives and The National Bike Dealers Association. We participate in many local and regional rides and events, and ride what we sell.

We envision a bright future through alternative transportation, particularly in dense urban centers. Improved air quality, reduced traffic, easier parking and improved personal health and enjoyment will be some of numerous benefits.

Meet the staff!

Bert Cebular, Founder

Bert is the founder and fearless leader at NYCeWheels. He seems to know everything about electric bikes, scooters, folding bikes and life in general - without ever referring to a book or manual (at least in front of us.)

Mr Bailey

Mr. Bailey is the head of security at NYCeWheels. He is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, and an enthusiastic chaser of squirrels. When not keeping a watchful eye on the ongoing affairs at NYCeWheels, he enjoys following Bert on his Brompton, begging to go to his favorite corner bar (Bailey's Corner pub) and reading The Economist.

Ishmael (Izzy)

Izzy is the service manager at NYCeWheels. He oversees the repair and assembly of everything we sell. Izzy has been working with Bert since 1996 and he can replace a battery pack blindfolded. We've only seen Izzy take a break once, and it was for roughly ten seconds. His work ethic is both inspiring and intimidating. When his cousins Rey and Omar are in the shop to help they form an unstoppable tag team of repair glory.

Ishmael (Izzy)

Better known on the internet at "Peter from NYCeWheels," Peter has been with us since May of 2010 and is in charge of the social media, internet marketing, event organization, and video production (aside from answering phone calls and emails and occasionally selling bikes on the floor). You are more likely to see Peter on the website or on Youtube than in the shop, but if you're persistent you may catch a glimpse of him working away in front of his 2 computer screens in the back or on one of our many group rides and special events. He's always ready to talk Brompton folding bikes and more than happy to help you find the perfect bike for your needs.
