Your Ride Report

Hey Mary,

Thank you for taking our Ride Guide! The RFA Utility is a bike that combines a high capacity for cargo on the rear deck and yet a more compact frame than our eSwoop and eStoker. It will fit on most bus racks.

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. If you need a shorter bike, the RFA Sport is the same length as a regular ebike; it will not have the same cargo capacity as when it is built in Utility mode but you can still carry quite a bit with panniers as well as on top of the deck.

For every day routes that are quite hilly or for carrying a heavy load, you will 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.
