Summary

  • The Conveyor takes smoothness to another level by using a Brose S mid-drive motor with internal Gates Carbon belts driving it, and external mechanical belt drivetrain, and a Shimano internally geared shifting hub, really this is top-shelf if you are looking for the most smooth bike out there
  • Features 2.4” wide high volume efficient tires, fenders with mud-flaps, comfortable pedals with grip tape, a relaxed seating position coupled with swept back handlebars, battery integrated lights, bottle cage bosses, locking grips, and comes in three cool colors
  • The smoothness is matched by quality brand name components the Brose motor, Shimano drivetrain, and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes, I think the 36v 13ah battery and minimal display work well here and I love you can shift at a stand still with the internal shifting hub
  • The bike is not exactly a cruiser with the active saddle, no throttle, and high step over, the price is at a premium even though it lacks features like a rear rack, throttle, puncture protection, or a reflective sidewall stripe, it has a focused purpose which may not be for everyone

Written Review

To run the forums, host the website, and travel, I charge a universal service fee for my reviews. This in-depth review was sponsored by Pedego Electric Bikes. My goal is to be transparent and unbiased with you, this video and writeup are not meant to be an endorsement of Pedego products. I welcome your corrections, additions, and feedback in the comments below and the Pedego electric bike forums.

Pros:

  • Pedego is known for their relaxed yet powerful cruising ebikes, the Conveyor takes it to another level with heavily focused emphasis on smoothness due to a belt-drive mid motor combined with a belt mechanical drivetrain
  • This is a smooth mid-drive take, but still has a cruiser feel since the stem sits higher than the seat post, the seat post is also angled back so you get a reclined seating position and the handle bars are swept so they come out to meet you
  • The Conveyor we tested today is a classic red, Pedego is known for its quality paint jobs, this bike also comes in a vibrant blue color as well as black
  • I love the tires here, they are a set of Super Moto X’s that measure 27.5” x 2.4”, these are high volume and that 2.4” width makes gives it a super comfortable feel which matches the rest of the bike well, these use a street tread which is more efficient on the road and of course, smooth
  • I love the nice included fenders here with these rubberized mud flaps, not only do these add an additional element to keep you clean, but it can help alleviate toe-strikes, an occurrence where your toes hit the fender if you are making a tight turn
  • The pedals are somewhat unique, usually you see thick generic pedals on a bike, but this has these wide and thinner plastic pedals with grip tape on the bottom, these are comfortable and grippy without the use of sharp plastic or metal teeth, so you could even ride this barefoot and feet just fine
  • Unlike hub-drive Pedgo models, this uses a Brose S mid-drive motor, this offers pedal assist and is a Class 1 ebike so you can legally take it on more trails, as mentioned before the internal belt drive makes it very smooth as well as the external mechanical belt, named the “Conveyor” since it is double smooth!
  • The motor is not only smooth but very quiet, it is a 250 watt motor, but it has 90nm of torque, so in reality, it feels and performs much more like a 500 watt motor, but with more comfort
  • Mounted underneath the downtube is the frame integrated lithium ion battery pack, Pedego uses a 36v 13ah battery which is smaller than their other bikes, but works perfectly great here since the mid-drive pedal assist system here is so much more efficient than the other cruisers they have, also the weight is mounted center along with that motor, so you have much greater weight distribution for the rider
  • Uses a more unique and streamlined display compared to some of the other models, it is back lit and very compact, it has an up and down button for pedal assist, power button, and light button, there is also a joy-stick knob that allows you to adjust settings and readouts, it tells you quit a bit like residual range and current human pedal power, I love that it is minimal so you still have plenty of room for accessories
  • I love the battery integrated lights here, they have them both in the front and the rear. Safety has always been a priority for myself and other cyclists, so it’s nice to see that more and more companies are including these on ebikes.
  • Just incase you wanted even more smoothness, it comes with an 8 speed Shimano internally geared shifting hub, made specifically for this belt setup, this allows you change gears while even at a stand still since there is not chain to slip or jump, as you shift it works just as smooth as the motor
  • A big win here are the 180mm rotor hydraulic disc brakes in both the front as well as the rear wheel, this stops the bike perfectly and is actuated in the front via a set of 3 finger brake levers
  • This is kind of a premium bike, really a top-shelf offering when it comes to smooth ebikes, I love that despite its sturdy build it only weighs 55lbs or so
  • Here at Electric Bike Review, we are big fans of bottle cage bosses, I am happy to say that they are here on this bike and that is a great addition for a lot of reasons, you can fit a number of accessories on them, not just water bottles, there are aftermarket add-ons like a GPS tracker, a folding lock, mounting points for racks, and many others that can get your bike setup just the way you want
  • This bike has a 30.9mm seat post, so if you were looking to add more comfort to the ride setup, you could get an aftermarket suspension seat post like a Kinekt or SR SunTour NCX seat post to give the ride more cushion for longer more sustained rides

Cons:

  • Although it has cruiser aspects, and Pedego is known for their cruiser bicycles, it is not exactly a traditional cruiser, most of this is due to the high-step top tube which may not be approachable for everyone, also there is no throttle, it is pedal assist only which makes it a little more active
  • In addition to it not being a real cruiser, the saddle is also a more active saddle, this is not comfortable for long durations of sitting, however, it does work good for pedaling as it doesn’t rub your thighs, so that is probably why they chose it for a more pedal-centric ebike
  • The center mounted kickstand can produce ‘pedal lock’; pedal lock is an annoying occurrence that happens when you reverse a bike with the kickstand down, the crank rotates back and strikes the kickstand, causing the bike to lock up until you push it forward a bit and stow the kickstand back up, not the end of the world, but pretty annoying when maneuvering the bike around a garage
  • A lot of tires on modern ebikes these days have included puncture protection or a reflective sidewall stripe, both are great for safety and convenience and I really appreciate them, however, this bike has neither and is kind of a missed opportunity, especially given the higher price tag
  • I thin it is great that this has fenders, but something I think that would make this bike more complete for commuting would be a rear rack, sadly, there is none here like there is on a lot of their other bikes like the Interceptor or City Commuter, again kind of a bummer because of the higher price tag
  • Speaking of that price tag, we have to mention that $4,995 price point, this not the lowest cost bike out there by any means, like I sad, it is top of the line for smoothness, but you do have to weigh the tradeoffs at the price, like the fact there is no rear rack, no throttle, uses a basic display, and has no suspension
