I took some measurements. The step-over height of the center tunnel is nine inches. The floorboard is 8-12" wide. I didn't get the width of the battery box.

If the battery box was a flat plate 3" thick it seems they could have a flat floor. The 1.x platform is incremental. There shall follow a 2.x platform.

I'm currently bike-less -- broken rear axle. Schwinn Collegiate Unobtainium? I'm thinking the best solution might be the MIT wheel, or some modern equivalent. The MIT wheel had the batteries right in the wheel.
