I went for an afternoon bike ride on my Tidalforce iO Step-through and happened upon an electric bike shop in the neighborhood. The shop is called hybridpedals.com in Arlington Virginia. They have a shop window and in it are a Ford Electric Bike made by Pedego and also a Optibike! The Ford bike is based on an Ellsworth frame and it is spectacular looking. I need to go back and take it for a test ride and compare it against my Tidalforce iO-X bike.
