Handmade in Portland, Oregon

The El-Wood is the engineering prototype of a complete line of e-bikes. This model uses the electronic Shimano 'Steps' drivetrain, 11 speeds selected manually or automatically. The production version will have the battery in the downtube.

Our Thoughts On Commuter/City Bikes

Some folks think commuters should be cheap, disposable bikes. Not us. Why? Because we, and most folks in Portland, commute, shop, explore, tour, and play on bikes. For us, a day-in, day-out commuter should be as reliable, capable, bullet-proof, good-looking and fun to ride as we can make it; and anticipated pleasure every ride. Anyway, we don’t necessarily believe bikes are sacred or anything, but we do believe there can be a close personal relationship between a bike and its owner, especially when the bike is required to be 'ol' reliable' every single day.
