Your Ride Report

 

 

Hey Adam,

Here are your recommended bikes: the RFA Utility is more compact but can still carry two children and cargo; the eSwoop has a bit more room on the deck and in the cargo bags. Both of the bikes recommended come with the CX motor which is ideal for hills.

I would be very happy to talk to you about these bikes and our accessories to help you decide on the one that will best suit your needs.

Motor

PowerPack 500

PowerPack 400

We believe the PowerPack 500 will meet your needs best. It will give you roughly 25 – 50 miles of range. The Bosch PowerPack 500 is the same size as and only slightly heavier than the PowerPack 400 but extends the range. With the included compact charger, it charges to 50% in 3.5 hours and 100% in 7.5 hours. Battery type: Lithium-ion. Please note that battery range depends on a variety of conditions including hills, road conditions, weight on the bike, etc.

According to your Ride Guide answers, we believe you would benefit from an electric assist. Having an electric assist bike can offer more flexibility in the way you ride your bike. You can ride further, faster, for longer, and up more hills. Based on your needs, we are recommending the CX motor. Here are the relative benefits of the 3 different drivetrains we offer: Performance, CX and Speed. This can help illustrate

Frame Shape

Low Step-Over Frame

Xtracycle offers two different frame shapes: a low step-over frame and a classic double triangle frame. Based off of your Ride Guide response, it appears a low step-over frame is ideal for you. This style of frame, found on the Swoop and RFA, makes getting on and off a fully loaded bike easier. This can be helpful for shorter riders, families where one rider is shorter, or riders who intend to carry cargo or kiddos on board.
