Bike Friday have announced a new compact cargo model the Ever-E-Day, shorter than BF's long-tail Haul-a-day model, sort of Bike Friday's equivalent to Tern's HSD vs GSD cargo models. Publicity shots show Bike Friday employees riding on the back to illustrate its load carrying capacity. In the comments on the announcement page Bike Friday confirmed the bike is fitted with the TSDZ2 motor they also use for their other mid-drive conversions. The battery pack weight is given as 3lb, BF claim a range of 30 miles, although they also offer a larger 60 mile pack or Grin Tech's airline compliant modular LiGo battery packs. The frame has a telescoping downtube to adjust fit for different height riders, and it can fully break apart to pack down into a suitcase. It is seriously lightweight for a mid-tail cargo ebike starting at 36lb - adding racks would push that up.

Telescoping downtube seems odd. That lightweight but strong TDZ motor is showing up on more and more factory made ebikes. Interestingly on folders. This and the Dahon. Its been one of my go to mid drives for conversions of trikes and Recumbents for several years now. The torque sensing and throttle combination are unique for a mid drive. Usually you either get torque sensing or throttle but not both on the other brands.

It might be making virtue of a necessity, the comments below the BF webpage for this model have the designers describe how it disassembles: "The Ever-E-Day has binder bolts in the middle of the frame. When you loosen them completely you can pull the bike apart into two halves." This is to enable the bike to pack into a travel case, I expect being able to change the length of the tube might help with bike fit.
