He isn't listed as a EM distributor or dealer. No mention of them on his site either. Cyclemax in Gaithersburg is a dealer but I don't think he has any in stock.
I don't think he had them listed on his site last year either but he brought the trials model and the low front fender trail model (which I don't see on their site any more, maybe the escape replaced it). One of the participants in the school brought his own e-trek (high front fender trail model) that he let us ride too.

A freeride, while not loud, isn't nearly silent. I'd like to have one of the electric bikes so I could do things like set up a course in the back yard without pissing off neighbors.

Lack of noise is the best thing about electric bikes by far.

precisely. Although I've spoken with the neighbors at my new lot and they have no issue with bikes, no reason to antagonize them.

MSRP of $4200 is a lot easier to swallow too. I didn't realize they were that cheap.

Where did you see that MSRP?
I heard it would be a little higher in the $5K range, but that's the first actual number I've seen.
