That indeed sounds like they are the same. I think they made some bmx's that were big(over sized) but not quite mountain bikes at one point?I'm not sure when back in the days were (was?), but they are a souther Cal company that made BMXs since the late '70s. Not sure when they started ebikes, but the lbs owner says they are good to deal with, and they did respond to my email quickly. I'm curious to see who will use the EP6.
