All Prodecotech bikes are assembled in the U.S. at the company’s factory in Fort
Lauderdale, Florida. The company always hits a good price point, and earlier models
were all throttle only, but for 2016 there will be some interesting options, including
mid-drives. The Phantom S9 mid-drive we rode briefly has impressive performance
and a clean look. Prodecotech wants to refine the riding position for full production.
Tempo has a unique line of e-bikes that are high on ease of
use. Each uses a Gates belt and an MPF mid-drive assist unit.
The bikes are designed to be low-maintenance, low-stress
machines that make it easy to park your car and ride.
For 2016, Tempo is upgrading to a frame-mount battery to
centralize and lower the center of gravity and centralize the
weight. At the same time, the looks are cleaned up.
