In 2007 Robert Provost and Daniel Del Aguila were running a successful company manufacturing electronics for consumers and businesses in South Florida. Their products ranged from closed circuit TV systems to personal electronics for individuals. Additionally, they also owned and operated a flourishing 12,000 sf motor sports store. They quickly grew frustrated with the low quality of the electric bikes they were importing from overseas.
As they kept removing parts from the pre-fab bikes and replacing them with better components they shopped for themselves, they began to wonder: Why can’t someone just get this process right the first time? Soon, along with James Aversa, their head mechanic at the time, they were asking themselves another question: Why not us?
What followed was a multi year quest to gather as much information as possible about the electric bike business. Why, for instance, were these eBikes doing so well in Europe and Asia but not in North America? Robert, Daniel and James – who was elevated to business partner in 2009 – spent four years traveling to dozens of national bike shows, setting up a booth and asking dealers and consumers alike: What do you want in an eBike? What features would make you take the plunge?
The result of all that careful research showed that Americans wanted a product that was designed, engineered and assembled in the USA with emphasis on the following elements: HIGH QUALITY • LOW MAINTENANCE • PORTABILITY • LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURE • AFFORDABILITY • MODERN STYLE

I was wondering what kind of spoke the Phantom X2 500 Folding Electric Bike uses? If they start to break (which spokes sometimes do), I need to know whether I can replace them and with what kind/type/make/model? Is there a specific brand and/or generic brand/type that would work as a replacement? Any info along this line will be appreciated.

Hello. I can't seem to find the folded dimensions of the Prodeco V5 Phantom X2. Also, I am new to the electric bike world. When it says the bike gets 25-35 miles per charge is that using the battery 100% or is that with a combination of pedaling and not pedaling?1 answer
Folded dimensions for the Phantom X2 are about 37" Length - 40" Height - 15" Width. The 25-35 miles per charge rating is measured for distance covered by using the motor only, no pedaling. Distances can vary depending on terrain, rider weight and wind resistance.
