Your Ride Report

 

 

Hey Jordan,

Thank you for taking our Ride Guide! The RFA Utility is a bike that combines capacity for cargo, space for up to two children on the rear deck and yet a more compact frame than our eSwoop. However, if both children are too young to sit independently on the deck, you may want to have one in a Yepp mini in front of you and the other in a Yepp Nexxt on the rear deck. The deck is a little bit shorter than the deck on the eStoker and it would be a tight fit to have two Yepp seats on the deck of the RFA. 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.

The eStoker is one of our long-tail bikes and has the same capacity for cargo as our eSwoop, but like the RFA it is built on two 24in wheels making it a better choice for off-road riding. However, it has a very high step-over height so it will be difficult to mount and dismount for riders with shorter legs.

The Performance motor might give you the support you need; however, if your every day routes are quite hilly or you are often carrying a heavy load, you might prefer the CX motor which will give you more torque in the highest level of assist.

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.

Frame Style: Classic

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 classic double triangle frame is ideal for you. This style of frame, found on the Classic and Stoker, is a good fit for taller riders and has a more rigid frame built for hauling heavy loads and riding off-road.

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 CX motor.

Here are the relative benefits of the 2 different drivetrains we offer: Performance and CX.

PERFORMANCE

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:

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.
