But since I became pregnant again, that too had to be put on hold as my growing belly (and fatigue) made longer rides increasingly difficult. I needed a new way to ride. And an electric cargo bike seemed like the perfect solution.

Best Overall Family Bike:Yuba Spicy Curry($ 4,500名)

Yuba Spicy Curry Bosch Cargo Bike

Yuba’s mission is to make bikes that can easily haul kids, gear, and groceries, all while putting a big smile on everyone’s face (bystander included). Other than its awesome name, we love the Spicy Curry for its sturdy, tank-like feel. Even when it’s loaded down and our son is waving side to side on the back, we barely notice.

对于一些额外的钱,你可以选择不同的附加组件取决于你的生活方式自行车。我们想使这个车我们主要的一个考虑我们的儿子到幼儿园。所以我们选择让可调单杠($200) as well as aYepp Maxi Easy Fit kid seat($ 220)。

我们的儿子喜欢的座位和单杠的组合。他得到了,骑高,所以他能看到爸爸妈妈,每当他感觉就像是能坚持下去。后来,我们添加了2-Go Cargo Bags($ 199页)和面包篮($ 200)。这增加了一倍以上我们的承载能力。

The frame looked big at first sight. But after adjusting the cockpit and seat to my 5’1″ height, I was pleasantly surprised at how natural and comfortable it felt. It has easily been the neighborhood’s most widely used bike. It’s simple to adjust the size of the bike, and it fits a wide variety of heights.

The components consist of a Shimano Deore 10-speed adjuster and Shimano Disc Brakes. And although I was wary at first of the non-internal hub, I grew to really like how much it felt like all my other bikes. The large front wheel helps smooth out bumps; it’s smooth enough that my son regularly falls asleep on the way home from school.

电机是一个非常强大和流畅博世性能CX中旬驱动用36V电池400Wh。它有四个层次协助:生态,旅游,EMTB,和Turbo。所有这些都是容易点击通过控制面板,这也显示里程,范围和速度上。

Best Compact, Daily Commuter:Tern GSD S00 Folding Bike($ 4,999-5,799)

Tern GSD Electric Cargo Bike

The Tern GSD is simply a remarkable bike all around. Many of the complaints about cargo bikes are that they are big, heavy, impossible to transport, and hard to store. All of that (except weight) gets turned upside down with the Tern GSD, which awesomely stands for “Get Stuff Done.”

Tern Bikes is known for its ingenuity in creating folding bikes. So when the brand came out with a cargo bike that was the length of a regular commuter bike and could fold down to fit easily in most midsize SUVs or minivans, many bike commuters (including us) took notice.

自行车甚至做出在它的后面架垂直站立,这样,保存在里面当它占用最小的空间。对于城市家庭谁住在一座公寓楼,人与有限的车库空间,或任何人谁​​只是不希望处理大经典货运自行车,燕鸥就是答案。

Other specs that set the GSD apart are its carrying capacity of 440 pounds and ability to fit two high-powered Bosch batteries on it. This gives it an impressive range of up to 155 miles. From the Green Guard non-puncture tires to the infinite-adjust internal geared hub, this bike is clearly made to last.

Like the other bikes, you can customize it however you like. We opted to try the会所篮($ 200),该Cargo Hold Panniers($ 175),和拓乐YEPP马克西child’s seat ($220). We were pleased to find out that the Cargo panniers were still usable with the Yepp Maxi seat over top of them. And with the batteries, panniers, and rack all sitting lower than your average bike, the handling and riding experience for both the driver and passenger is very smooth and comfortable.

Like all the other cargo bikes on this list, it fits a range of riders from 5′ to 6’5″. The unique handlebar, seatpost, and stem adjustment make it even quicker and easier to truly find a perfect cockpit for riders of various sizes. We used this bike exclusively for an entire week to see how quickly we would need to charge it. It lasted the entire week. We clocked 90 miles, using a mix of tour and eMTB mods, and it still showed two of five battery bars.

在$ 4,999与单个电池和$ 5,799与双电池,这一个排在包价明智的中间。但它也有我们的是最通用,最持久的,流畅的乘坐了所有的人的一票。

最佳儿童,重型汽车:一堆原生家庭货运自行车($ 2,499)

一堆家庭货运自行车

This crowd-stopping, front-loading trike gets high points for its lower price range (compared to other e-cargo bikes) and ease of assembly. It literally showed up at my house fully assembled via a semi-truck. All we had to do was take off the packaging, adjust the seat, and it was ready to go.

The big cargo box fits up to four kids and comes with comfortable cushions and easy-to-use shoulder straps. In the span of a few weeks, we took it out with all combinations of cargo: a dog and two kids, three kids and a cooler full of snacks, and even a week’s worth of groceries. Our 2-year-old loved it because he was up high and could chat with his friend across from him.

The bike has additional add-ons like a rain cover and a sunshade, which the kiddos and dog all appreciated when the elements became too much. Unlike other cargo bikes where it’s hard to secure your stuff, the cargo box has a lockable under-storage box that can easily fit a purse, computer, and other smaller valuables.

一堆原生家庭货运自行车
The steering of the bike does take some getting used to. At 148 pounds, it’s not your normal ride. But with each ride around the block, I became more and more confident to take it out on the streets.

The components aren’t of the highest quality possible. But the combination of the Shimano Tourney SL- TX50 and the 500W 48V Dapu Hub motor created a smooth shifting and pedaling experience. And the easy-to-charge battery kept us motoring around town for almost 25 miles before we had to charge it up again.

The standover design and easy-to-adjust seat make it fit a wide range of sizes. I’m barely 5’1″, and I can ride it just as well as my 6′ stepdad. The control panel is also very intuitive and easy to turn on your headlight and see speed and battery life.

对于谁想要的东西来取代他们的车短,本地旅游的家庭来说,这自行车是最完美的旅程。然而,这不是谁愿意去他们要去哪里快的人。虽然电机将帮助多达20英里,它带有一个出厂设置最多15英里每小时(这很容易通过设置改变)。

而且因为它是一个三轮车,自行车的处理是在更高的速度有点不稳定,尤其是在弯道,你不能瘦像一个正常的自行车。因此,我们建议你留着,留着15英里每小时限制一段时间,直到你学习的局限性。这种自行车看作更多的是“放轻松,享受景点”自行车。这是一个超级有趣的经验与您的孩子分享。

Weight:148磅。
Length:6'
承载能力:220磅.;四个孩子,一个中等狗和一个孩子,还是两个孩子的一大杂货店买的混合物
范围:20-30 miles depending on load and speed
价钱:$2,499

缺点:重;更难备份和转身较其他车类机型;大,会占用大量的空间,在车库
最适合:Taking multiple kids to the local park, dogs, and big grocery buys

Smoothest Ride for Big Loads:Yuba Electric Supermarché($ 5,500名,$ 3,200)

Yuba Supermarché Cargo Bike

For hauling a big grocery buy, transporting your SUP to the local surf wave, or taking your dog and kiddo to the river for a hike, this bike is the ticket. With a Bosch Performance CX mid-drive motor and PowerPack 500 battery, the riding is fast and smooth.

There is a range of gears and four levels of pedal-based electric assist. Like all the others, it only can get up to only 20 mph, but it feels like you’re going much faster. And at stoplights, it was the easiest of the bikes to start due to the internal hub that allows you to switch gears while stopped.

这需要一些习惯的时间更长,更重的前端。但也有少数的实践运行后,感觉很自然。困难的部分是重新调整你的常规自行车的回合!控制面板是所有接口中的最高档。它可以让用户看到他们是如何大的权力使用,行程,总milage多久,到目前为止,并留下多少英里。再加上始终在充电的LED灯的马古拉MT5接下来液压盘式制动器,保持父母高兴和kiddos安全。

在Supermarché范围持续20和40英里之间的任何地方。对于我们的家庭,我们用它每天三至四次,平均携带200磅7英里长的郊游。我们耗尽电池下降到每一个日间酒吧。幸运的是,它很容易停放在车库,并收取其另一轮。步通过帧和易于调整座舱适合整个邻域从4'9“到6'5”。

$ 5,999元听起来像是一个非常高的价格,但是,当我们比较这对其他品牌溢价longjohn自行车,它实际上是最低的价格。如果你知道你要每天都使用它(和节省一些钱气体),它可能只是值得的成本。该Supermarché也是在$ 2,799无电可用的选项。

什么是您的预算?

New electric cargo bikes can range from as low as $1,800 to as high as $8,000. Cargo boxes, panniers, front boxes, kickstands, and kid seats all cost extra and can add up quick. However, after doing a quick search on my local Craigslist and Facebook online market groups, I have seen some pretty good options out there that are much cheaper than buying them brand new.
