For those who select rather by tech specs than by similar color:Looks like the Pedego Conveyor
Hi Bluecat,I know you like Stromer bikes and represent/defend them in this forum.For those who select rather by tech specs than by similar color:
Have a closer look on the MTB Cycletech "Code"! The small Swiss factory has also a gearless hub drive with belt transmission finished. Instead of the Sturmey Archer like Stromer it uses, they placed the Pinion at the crank. They planned with the Go SwissDrive, but changed to Alber's (Germany) Neodrive.
Please find more details on their website:
Sourced said, MTB Cycletech applied to become a "Vehicle Manufacturers" in the EU. This would open a bigger market, but also brings new restrictions through the Brussel bureaucracy. I don't expect, they will enter the US market, but the project remains interesting. As they are only at the beginning with the 45km/h series, the gap to a Stromer is huge: Poor lighting, unsuitable suspension fork, horrible battery mechanism, complete lack modern anti theft and no connectivity... but pricing close to an ST3.

On the other hand, the Neodrive is already a 48V system - and the color palette offers a broad variety.
My last ordinary bicycle before I bought a Stromer was a MTB Cycletech. It was a commuter bike like the Stromer – and also like Stromer, MTB Cycletech was renowned to build elegant and functional bikes in one. Meanwhile, Butch Gaudy has left the company, but I was convinced, they learned from him how to design bikes which bring functionality and elegance together. Today I know I was wrong.I believe that your "on the other hand" comment is unfair.
