Your Ride Report

 

 

Hey Emily,

Thank you for taking our Ride Guide! The eSwoop is ideal for carrying passengers and cargo as it benefits from a low center of gravity that comes from the 20in rear wheel; it is also particularly easy to mount and dismount, even when fully loaded, thanks to the low step-over height of the frame geometry. You will be able to fit two Yepp seats on the rear deck. However, to fit a third child on the rear deck, you might want to have your youngest child in a Yepp mini between you and the handlebar.

The RFA Utility is a bike that combines a high capacity for cargo, space for up to two children on the rear deck and yet a more compact frame than our eSwoop. There won’t be room for two Yepp seats on the rear deck but one in the rear, with the older child on the deck, in addition to one in front of you, might would well.  

The Performance motor will likely give you the support you need. I would be happy to chat with you about our bike and accessory options to make sure you find the right combination to suit your needs.

Schedule a Ride Review

Go over your Ride Report results and have any questions answered about your recommended bikes by scheduling a Ride Review with our resident bike expert, Marie-Claire. We’ll make sure that the bike you end up with is exactly what you were looking for.

Which drive unit works for me?

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 Performance motor.

Here are the relative benefits of the 3 different drivetrains we offer: Performance, CX, and Speed.

PERFORMANCE

CX

SPEED

How much battery power do I need?

Distance between charges and price both go up as Watt-hour numbers – 500wh vs. 1000wh – increase. Go for the 500wh for regular use or 1000wh batteries if you:

More battery info can be found here. And you can check out Bosch’s fancy multi-factor range calculator here.

PowerPack 400

Your battery: PowerPack 500

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.
