Your Ride Report



Hey Jake,

Thank you for taking our Ride Guide! The RFA 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. With two 24in wheels and wide tires, the RFA is a good choice for riding off-road. The RFA can be converted from Utility to Sport, or vice versa, down the road by simply changing the positioning of the rear wheel and installing the corresponding rear rack.

Our 2021 Shimano bikes will arrive later this Fall but they are now available for pre-order on our website. The deposit to reserve a bike is $500. Once you have pre-ordered your bike, we will be holding your place in the queue and bikes will be built in the order in which they came in. You may add accessories to your order now, if you like, but you will also have an opportunity to add them before we finalize your order once the bikes are in stock.

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.




It’s a compact utility bike you can ride every day that fits your life right where it’s at.

Frame Style: Low Step-Over

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.

Electric Assist

On our 2021 eBikes, we’re offering the top-of-the-line Shimano Shimano STEPS EP8 Drive system and battery. Here are the details on the Drive System, Battery, and Computer for your Xtracycle ebike.

Shimano EP8 Drive Unit

The Shimano STEPS EP8 e-bike motor has a top pedal-assist speed of 20 mph and up-to 85 nM of torque for hilly terrain or heavier loads. up to 400% e-assist and 85Nm of torque, you’ll cruise up hills with your bike loaded or unloaded.

Shimano 630Wh Battery

With 630Wh, you’ll be able to ride further without having to stop and recharge. A single 630 watt-hour battery provides between 30 to 60 miles per charge, depending on conditions, and fully charges in 4 hours.

Shimano E5003 Computer

The E5003 cycling computer gives you easy handlebar access to control your ebike system. With large display and easy to use button layout, you’ll take less time thinking about your electric assist and more time enjoying your adventure.
