No idea. You'll have to ask seven.

Awesome Work

Great look and design, that bike is ready to go to work.

I clicked on your link form your site about Bosch. It's kinda neat, you can change parameters (weight, cadence, average speed and riding mode) to tabulate range.

Speaking of Ti watches... I have an older Festina Ti watch I don't wear any more if anyone's interested.

Amazing commuter ebike! Why did you spec a dropper post on a commuter? Is it so a range of riders can use it?

I have found a dropper to be a great accessory for an urban bike. There its an awful lot of stopping and waiting at lights and it is super convenient to just drop the post and stay in the saddle with your feet touching the ground while you wait, then pop it up when the light turns green. Also, because of the overall higher speeds, it is really nice to lower your center of gravity in the turns. Coming from an MTB background myself, a dropper had become integral to the way I ride. Once you get in the habit of using a dropper on an MTB it translates very easily to road riding.

I’ll do it soon.

Actually from a few months ago it got a little shorter.

So I had a opportunity to take Jamie's e-commuter for a spin the last time I was Firefly HQ...it's a super interesting bike, and here are a just a few of my many thoughts:

Every commuter bike needs a dropper...I get it now.
The Bosch motor is a shockingly powerful smile-machine.
A sturdy commuter bike packed with utility (big rack, lights, metal fenders, upright posture, etc) can now be fun to ride, and probably that would make dedicated bike commuting a realistic option (for me, as opposed to just fair-weather no-errands bike commuting).
