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.
Below, we highlight, categorize, and review the five best bikes we tested. They were all standouts in their own unique way. But before we dive in, check out the lingo below explaining the different styles of bikes.
Best Cargo Bike Styles
Front-load trike: These have two wheels and the cargo box in front. This stable style can fit as many as four kids in the box and sometimes an extra kid or panniers on the back.
Best Overall Family Bike:Yuba Spicy Curry（$ 4,500名）
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.
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.
Weight:60 lbs. (without any of the add-ons)
范围：25-55 miles depending on mode and capacity
缺点：Can be hard to store, on the pricey side
最适合：在城里差事,孩子皮卡和跳伞,狗s, big grocery or hardware store buys
Best Compact, Daily Commuter:Tern GSD S00 Folding Bike（$ 4,999-5,799）
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.
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。
Weight:70 lbs. (with one battery)
范围：Up to 200 km
缺点：20″ wheels can be a little harsh on bumpy ground
最适用于：Ultimate one-size-fits-all family utility bike
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.
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.
范围：20-30 miles depending on load and speed
优点：Comes fully assembled, has a secure lockbox; thick, durable, flat-proof tires; can fit up to five kids (with one on the back)
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）
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.
$ 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。
范围：20-55 miles depending on load and power-assist mode
价钱：$5,500 on sale (does not include the box)
优点：Large capacity, can fit anything from a large keg to two kids in the front
What Kind of Family/Rider Are You?
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.
