Right now, the Vado is the only e-bike I've seen that fits my picture of what I'm looking for in an e-bike that is sold and supported by a reputable manufacturer that has an actual dealer network for service issues.
The phone isn't required to be mounted and monitored while riding. It's a setup only.
