Dr. Don Gerhardt (in the middle)


Don is our e-bike industry & value engineering advisor. He functions as an outside advisor to the company, and brings us everything from industry new, to customer referrals, the latest from Eurobike, personal connections in the industry, and much more. We wouldn't be here without Don's help; he has been helping us out from behind the scenes since the beginning. At one point, Don was one of the top most recognized value engineers in the world; he has had an extensive career in the automotive, engineering, corporate management, even bio-engineering fields, having worked for Pontiac, Ford, GM, and Ingersoll Rand. Besides value engineering, Don is also quite skilled in product planning, profitability, voice of the customer, and more, and never hesitates to lend a little advice or tools when necessary. Don developed the LEVA E-Bike Technician Certification Course, and is author of the course's text, the Electric Bike Maintenance Manual.


Dr. Jack Martin


Meet Dr. Jack Martin, electric vehicle evangelist and educator. He is our communications & community engagement advisor. Among other things, Jack is the founder of the Triad Electric Vehicle Association (TEVA), and a Hypermiling Grand Champion, able to squeeze 124.6 mpg out of a single gallon of gas. Jack teaches the sustainable transportation course at Appalachian that so appropriately ignited our passion for e-bikes as well as others now in the e-bike industry. Known as 'Sustainable' Jack when on air, he also co-hosts a local radio show in Burlington, NC called the Home Power Hour. Dr. Martin dreams of one day becoming a solar bike nomad, of traveling the whole world on nothing but solar power and pedaling. To this end, he has agreed to help us develop the next generation of solar powered vehicles. Jack drove the support van during the Sun Trip California 2022, and has agreed to support the trip again in 2023.
