The Best eBike Accessories

: The Burn 2023 Edition

As we are all getting ready for That Thing in the Desert, we wanted to share some stories from previous Burns to help illustrate why we have selected the eBikes accessories we’re making available to everyone. These are all true stories, though we’ve been asked not to use real names. Maybe if you meet these Burners out there, you can say you read their story. 

If you need any of these accessories, come visit us on your way to the Playa. We will be located in Nixon, NV just off 477 before the Post Office.

Playa eBike Front Basket

In 2015, Scout thought he could carry everything in his camelback. Except that year, 2015, was one of the coldest on record. By 4 pm almost every day, his flannels and faux fur were barely enough to keep him warm. And he couldn’t fit everything into his camelback, as planned. Of course, his fellow Burners came to the rescue and attached a mesh basket to the front of his bike. This proved a lifesaver and he’s never gone to the playa without a front basket.

Premium 3000-10000 MHA Portable Charger

In 2022, Pastie knew they were going to take hundreds of photos each day. They were determined to make a photobook for campmates. Except Pastie’s iPhone ran too low on battery and they missed shooting the Black Rock Symphony at Paradesium. We’ve ensured Patsie will never be without power again.

Strong Anti-Theft Folding Bike Lock

Big Bird came in 2016. He and his wife went out on the playa for an art tour. She told him to bring his bike lock. He said, “This is The Burn. Nobody will steal my bike.” Guess what? The playa provides…and the playa also steals bikes. Nobody will steal his eBike this year with this heavy duty lock.

Playa LED Strip

Do you know what a Darkwad is? Seriously. This is the name for someone who goes out on the playa at night without lighting on their bike (or themselves). Ability-Jane learned the hard way when she rode out her first night without any lights. Now, she will never have to worry about that again. Don’t be a Darkwad! (Or a sparkle pony).

Waterproof USB Rechargeable LED Bike Wheel Lights (7 LED, 9 Colors)

No story. Just insurance. Double measure of lighting wonderment for Ability-Jane and anyone who wants to light up at night.

Leakproof 1 Liter Hydration Pack with Insulated Tube

 In 2016, Sprinkles had a camelbak, but his tube broke. Basically, he was out dancing with his campmates, and they piled their camelbaks into a mountain they danced around. If you’ve been to the Burn, you know these piles. When it came time to leave, people were grabbing and pulling the packs out. Someone broke Sprinkle’s. And he didn’t have an extra pack. He always tells this story because now he never travels without an extra one.

Multifunctional Playa Repair Kit

all things are vulnerable to needing repair out in the Black Rock Desert. Be prepared. That is what the nice folks at a bike repair camp told Sylvia when one of her inner tubes started to leak in 2017. Last year, her girlfriend's inner tube busted. She had this repair kit. So, when she got to a bike repair camp on the 9:00 side, she was able to lend a hand.

Playa Waterproof Handlebar Pouch

his story goes back to 2014. If you were there, you know about the huge rain storm that closed the gates on Monday. Papa Muscle had these cool paper maps he created for a scavenger hunt. He planned it for months before the Burn. They were in his front basket, while the rain poured down. He lost them all. Next year, he returned with a waterproof handlebar pouch. And he even felt safe bringing his digital camera out, as we

Playa Easy Use Cup Holder

this last story is about me. This was a fun gift I received last year just before I started The Naked Pub Crawl. Let me tell you, this was the handiest thing ever to ensure I always had my cup ready. So, I want to make sure everyone else can have one, too.

Our RENTAL program

Yes, we rent our eBikes! Please take a moment to read through this entire page carefully.

Our eBikes are brand new. They are waiting for you in their original packaging. (You can request assembly for a very low $25 fee which covers the cost to dispose of the packing materials in a responsible manner). Many Burners cannot bring their eBikes back to their default life. If you wish to rent the eBike, here are the steps and terms/conditions we request you follow:

  1. Pay the eBike Deposit: Choose “Rent” when selecting your product on the product page. The amount at checkout will be the same.
  2. Schedule your Pickup: after submitting the order, you will receive an email with your receipt and a dedicated link to schedule to eBike pickup time
  3. Schedule your return: you will receive an additional email with a dedicated link to schedule your return. 
  4. Get $150 Refund (for the “Eco” and $200 for the “Premium”): We will refund $150 (for the “Eco”) or $200 (for the “Premium) for any eBike that is in proper working order. The playa is hard on everything, we know. But we cannot accept returns that are broken or missing parts. We request you return it with a charge in the battery so we can test it. Also, please remove all lighting and decorations. We reserve the right not to provide a refund based on our inspection of the eBike. By selecting the “Rental Program,” you agree to allow our on-site team member to be the final decision maker in the assessment.
 
We will keep our ears open to news of how Exodus is going. We understand it can be unpredictable. But if you miss your scheduled day and time, we cannot guarantee we will be there to accept your return. You must keep in touch with us.

All Rentals are non-refundable unless expressed otherwise by Playa eBikes in writing. If you fail to bring your eBike back we will keep the deposit paid.

Our Buy back program

We take pride in offering exclusively brand-new, unused eBikes for sale. Thus, a used bike cannot be resold. Our convenient buyback program ensures you can receive partial and intended for:

1. Burners returning a new eBike that has never been used.
2. Burners that purchased the eBike for the event but do not intend on taking it back with them and need to dispose of it. The program works as follows:

Unopened Box ($250): You have a Playa eBike that remains in its original packaging, and you have not opened the box.

Open Box ($150): You have taken the eBike out of its original packaging but have not used it.

Lightly Used ($100): You have used your Playa eBike, but it appears to be in like-new condition, with no visible cosmetic or physical signs of usage.

Save the environment ($50): You bring in your Playa eBike, which shows clear signs of usage.
