California Scooter Company's Steve Seidner got fed up trying to find a pedal-assist bike and decided the best way to get what he wanted was to build his own. The result is the FT750-26 and FT750-20, two e-bikes with up to 40 miles of range and legit hardware for trouble-free operation. Slight frame differences and tire size — 26 and 20 inches — separate the two models, but both share major components: Front and rear Shimano hydraulic brakes, Shimano 7-speed Freewheel gear set and a Tourney derailleur. A hydraulic telescoping fork has nearly four inches of travel and eight adjustable damping settings, and fat Kenda tires help soak up the worst bumps on your daily ride. A 13.6-Ah battery powers a 750-watt Bafang hub motor, making the FT750 capable of 20 MPH with the thumb throttle only. An LED display on the handlebars gives battery status, pedal assist level, and trip info. The FT750 is available for order now, with delivery beginning in February 2020.
