If you need to pin point the shop check with the guys at Aurora Suzuki. I'm sure they have the name of the shop, good luck.
Okay, it looks like there are two different electric bike company's in my neck of the woods (I live in Greenwood).
There's Electric Bikes Northwest in Ballard proper (4810 17th Ave NW):
and there is also: Seattle Electric Bike (the one I was thinking of) at 8310 8th Ave NW
I think I was confusing them with JRA Bike shop, which has a location next door to Seattle Electric Bike and another location in downtown Seattle. JRA's Greenwood location used to be in Ballard, and their downtown location used to be the "Bikestation Seattle" and is inside the Bike Port Seattle.
I can't speak to either of the electric bike companys, I don't have an electric bike and so haven't patronized either, but the folks at the JRA in my neighborhood have always been friendly and helpful, and were quite gracious with an exchange when I got the wrong sized part.
