1997 Eastern Woods Research E-Motion

This bike is not for sale. The bikes and parts we currently have for sale can be found on the MOMBAT for sale page.

Eastern Woods Research was founded by Jay DeJesus, Kenn Rymdeko and Jason McLean in Eastern Pennsylvania.  Starting in 1991, they built a few  frames in a local barn but soon farmed production out to Bill Grove at Grove Innovations.  The EWR bikes were built for the tight technical PA trails and had a nod to Jay's roots in trials riding.  The Original Woods Bike was the more technical oriented model while the E -Motion was more cross country oriented. This E-Motion still features the dropped top tube design and 12.5" high bottom bracket.  Approximately 75 E-Motion bikes were built.  This particular bike was the last Grove-built EWR and was a special order for a small woman racer and was built but never delivered.  Rody, of Groovy Cycle Works, got the bike from Bill Grove and let his kids ride it and, when they outgrew the bike, donated it to the MOMBAT.
