E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
Electric cargo bikes are more than just a fun ride. They are a reliable form of transportation for cargo like groceries, bags, or a kid or two. So, which electric e-bike offers the most for 2023? Here are six we think are well worth the money.
The critical accessory you want the cargo bike to have is someplace to hold things. The style will vary based on the model bike, but for most, that means someplace to put another person, like a bench or seat. That allows the family to ride one bike.
Another feature you want to see on a cargo bike is stability. It should have a strong frame with a design that makes it more stable and easy to ride.
Here are some cargo bikes check on the boxes.
If you prefer your cargo bike with two wheels instead of three, then the Radwagon 4 is a practical choice. It comes at a lower price than the EVRYjourney but doesn’t have that cool passenger seat. Instead, what you’ll get with the Radwagon is more like a small rear rack. It is what bike enthusiasts call a long tail style. You tie something down on it like a basket or let someone hop on while you drive them around. It may also hold small bike seats for toddlers.
Other features on the Radwagon include a mid-step frame. That means you can pedal while standing, but it won’t be as easy to mount and dismount. The telescoping seat post allows you to pick the height that works best for you. It also has a low center of gravity, making it stable. The tires are 3-inch with a custom tread pattern that works well on uneven surfaces.
The Spicy Curry from Yuba has a long-tail design similar to the Radwagon but will cost you more. The extra cost goes into giving you one of the top motors available – a mid-drive BOSCH 250w motor and a PowerPack 500 battery.
Other features on the Spicy Curry include Schwalbe Super Moto 2.4-inch tires and Magura MT32 hydraulic brakes. The Spicy Curry also has a unique design with a rear wheel smaller than the front. This is supposed to add stability to the frame by providing a low center of gravity.
Another electric cargo bike featuring a long-tail design is the Flyer L885. It is priced a bit lower, but it can also haul a little more weight. This cargo e-bike features an ergonomic frame design and an integrated rear rack.
The tires are 3-inch and puncture resistant, and the bike comes with a Tektr lever brake system for excellent braking on demand.
The Cero One flips the switch on the long-tail design by putting the cargo area in the front of the bike and the back for a little extra leverage. The combination can hold three detachable baskets if you want to carry cargo, not kids. In addition, the manufacturer offers detachable baskets to allow you to customize your cargo space.
Also, the Cero One comes with a Shimano E611 motor system that promises you 105 miles per charge. Like the EVRYjourney, this e-bike has a low step-through frame for easy mounts and dismounts. The pricing is mid-range comparable to the EVRYjourney, as well.
A second bike from Yuba makes the list because of its unique styling. Yuba calls the Mundo EP8 a two-wheel SUV. In other words, it’s a little longer than the average cargo e-bike. The length is closer to a tandem bike, but it doesn’t have a second set of pedals. That extra length allows it to carry more weight, too. It is the only e-bike on the list able to carry 550 lbs. You pay for the privilege, though. It is more expensive than most cargo bikes, too.
This model bike from Yuba gets its name from the Shimano EP8 mid-drive motor it carries. Some additional features include an all-terrain design, 2.15-inch tires, and a 10-speed cassette.
The key to finding the cargo e-bike right for you is to figure out what you need. If you need a bike that carries more weight than the Mundo makes sense if you can afford it. If you just want something that can haul kids or some bags, the EVRYjourney is affordable and has fun features. From cheap to pricey, you’ll find at least one cargo ebike on this list that will improve your life.
