Late last month I had a great phone conversation with Civilized Cycles founder Zach Schieffelin about his startup company and first ebike coming to market: the motor scooter-inspired Model 1. Luckily, Schieffelin happened to be passing through town a couple weeks later and stopped in at Cycle Volta to run us through the Model 1 in person—including a demonstration of how the bike’s self-leveling rear suspension works.
