That is latched and locked as well. And then the bike was sitting on the seatpost there. We're gonna raise that seatpost up so it could be used by an adult. Gonna put there for now you're basically done pedals as well. Gonna stretch them out like that and like this and we're good to ride. That's pretty simple. So let's take a look at the details of this bike that make it a standout, both as an electric bike and as a fold up bike and frankly just as a bike in general. So if you're gonna make a great fold up bike, forgetting about electrifying it, you have to have smaller wheels. And these wheels are decently smaller. They're about 20 inches or so and yeah, 20 inches by two inches wide. So they give you good width for a little bit of shock absorption. They have fenders built in and this e-bike has a front motor.
We're gonna talk about that in a second. You've also got, when you electrify a bike, you've got some cable routing issues you need to worry about. First of all, all these quick disconnects are there. So if you ever have problems with this bike, you can replace pieces and parts. And of course pedago has a lineup of dealers that is really extensive and a lot of these are just sort of plug and play parts. You've also got all your cable routing done here together, which means you don't have to worry about cables getting stuck on things when you fold this up and throw it into a compartment or a closet or wherever you're gonna use it. So that's really well done as well. We're gonna talk a little bit more about the belt drive here and how that works with your gearing back here in a second.
But overall, the frame size, you can see this easily fits in adult, it's up to my hips. You can sort of, you know, gentle step over height there a lot of strength here. This clasp is really easy. Sometimes these clasps can be difficult on fold up bikes. You wanna wanna make sure that they are both secure but also easy to use. And that's what this is down here. The pedals nice and simple. They do fold up so they give you a little bit less width when it's folded. The seed is very comfortable and of course you can always upgrade that with pedago. And then the battery pack, you really wanna protect a battery pack in an e-bike, especially a folding E-bike. And it's built into the frame here, nice and protected. There's two different battery sizes you can get so you can choose which model you want to give you a little bit extra range, uh, equal power as far as output, but one's gonna have more range.
So let's talk about a few of the things that talk about the e-bike side of this and how this works really, really well. So every e-bike needs a good controller. And this is frankly where a lot of e-bikes go wrong. They put in a controller and it's complicated and hard to use. So this one is simple. It's currently set to miles per hour in Canada here we would send it to kilometers per hour, but you can sort of see what you've got down here is your total mileage and that one's a trip meter right now. But we can change that to other things. This is your battery. So this is how much uh, life is in your battery there, so no issues there. And your miles per hour over here, there's a bar graph, you can see one bar right now. But that bar graph will build to show you how much electric power you're using so you get a sense of your efficiency and overall you know how much power you're using there.
And then this is your key piece right here. Pedal assist. P A s is pedal assist uh, systems. So what you have to start is you can start with level zero, level zero, you can bike this like a regular bicycle. There's no extra power, no nothing. As soon as you go to level one, you now have a two-wheel drive bicycle on this, which makes a ton of sense. We'll talk about that in a second. As you pedal and pedal assist one, this is the lowest level of assist. So again, you're gonna be spinning your pedals and it will sense that you're spinning and when it does, it's gonna start giving you a low level of power, which spins the front wheel in this case. So it's assisting you, the front wheel is assisting you while you're pedaling the rear wheel. Level two, level three, level four, and level five are all the exact same thing with just more power.
So you've got more and more and more and more power, which is really helpful. If you go to level six, you're still pedaling the bike as if it's level zero. So there's no pedal assist at all, but pedal assist or sorry level six allows you to use the throttle, which we're gonna talk about in a second, why you would use that, how you would use that. Uh, but this allows no pedal assistance. So you can certainly exercise all you want, but you can still use the throttle over hills or over other things where you may want a little extra assistance just short term. So lots of options there and really easy to use at a quick glance you can tell what's going on. And then this bike has three speeds for gears, it's a grip shift. Over here you've got level one, level two, and uh, level three, three gears. That's all you need. Simple, simple stuff. Let's show you that throttle, we'll talk about how that works. So your throttle is on your right hand side and it's just like a motorcycle, but it's not the complete throttle. So this here does not move. This sort of pedago labeled uh, area doesn't move. You can just keep your hand there no problem. It's just the inside
So as you're folding the bike up, if your pant leg touches that or if whatever else touches that, you don't have to worry about getting grease on there. And again, there's no maintenance there which is really, really smart. Now they step up the smart again because this is a two-wheel drive bicycle. So if you think about an electric motor, electric motors have a lot of torque and if you're on a slippery area, this wheel can spin when you give it too much torque. But what's nice about this is you're balancing the torque between two wheels. So instead of like a sports car where you put a lot of torque on the rear wheel and you can spin out a little bit on a low traction surface, you're putting some torque to this wheel with your pedals and you're putting the rest of the torque to the front wheel with your throttle or with a pedal assist.
And that means you have a two-wheel drive bicycle that helps you with traction in certain situations. So really smart design here to have internal gearing, the uh, maintenance free and grease free belt drive and then moving that electric motor to the front wheel, which still senses the pedalling the same way of rear motor would, but it allows you to have that two-wheel drive bicycle, which is kind of ingenious for this type of bike. So finishing off of the drive drivetrain, we're looking at the front wheel now and this is your motor just looks like an extra large hub. It's all powered and connected here with these cables. Again, they're routed very well and if it seems like it would be sort of a disconnected, disjointed, uh, thing when you have pedals there and pedal assist here, I've gotta tell tell you that pedago nails the calibration between these.
So you are actually keeping the rear brake protected so it's not gonna face any uh, area. So when it folds down, the rest of the bike is here and that protects that brake disc. So you've always got solid brakes, you never have to worry about sort of bending those brakes when you fold this up and throw it in your RV compartment or throw it in some other place, uh, where you're gonna be storing this bike. It's all well protected and you've got quality brakes. So if we're gonna talk about safety, we also have to talk about things like lighting. And this bike has excellent lighting which you can turn on right from that computer that we use to control our pedal assist. As you can see, it's very, very bright, which helps light your way and it also helps give you good visibility so others can see you.
And that of course is powered off the main battery. There's also a taillight on this and there's an ingenious little bell. So you have a bell built into this bike that you don't have to worry about damaging when you fold the bike up. Let me show you that right now. So we're looking at the left side handlebar right now. This is your controller right over here. You've got your grip shift here. So this is where you're gonna control your speed and you've got a bell built into the brake lever right here. A little uh, grab with a finger. Should hear it fairly clearly. It's uh, I'm not micd up, it's uh, only Mikey me, but it is a very loud bell, which is easy to use and it dings on both the pull and the release. So you have a double ding every time you pull it right by your brake lever.
I love the way the cable routing is taken care of by running through the frame and bun bunched together. So you don't have to worry about catching those on things if you're pulling it in and out of a tight compartment. The pedal assist system and the computer system here on the pedago e-bikes is very, very good. It's easy to use, it works well. And the entire bike was designed not only to be ridden by tall people, short people, but also to be stored. And I think that really matters. The idea of front and rear wheel drive, putting that electric motor in the front also gives you some traction benefits, especially in lower traction areas and work seamlessly as is. It's a really unique bike in the entry. And I think one thing you'll find as well is when you ride different e-bikes, Pedego bikes ride very well.
