Pedego began as a brand in 2009,
and over the years they have continued to produce bikes that qualify as
both good-looking and -performing.
The company has a variety of assisted
models, including a tandem. Pedego’s
new cargo/delivery bike continues the
brand’s trend in producing bikes that
serve a real purpose. In the past the
bikes were throttle only, but new models
have pedal assist as well.
MPF doesn’t make e-bikes, but it
makes e-bikes possible, supplying a
torque-sensing mid-drive, control units,
batteries and sensors. To showcase
their system, MPF Drive relied on a
selection of exotic carbon bikes to
showcase the drive. Look at the frame
design around the motor and those
shapely carbon fat bike rims. Tempo

the first company who contacted us
about testing a bike powered by MPF.
