Your Ride Report

 

 

Hey Patricia,

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. The eSwoop is too long to fit on most bus racks, however. 

You will be able to fit two Yepp seats on the rear deck of the eSwoop. If you have a younger child who also needs to be in a Yepp seat, you might want to consider a Yepp mini in front of you on the bike. 

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. The dual battery would give you the most range, but depending on the total number of miles that you need to cover in one day, you might be ok with a 500wH single battery.

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: 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.

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 3 different drivetrains we offer: Performance, CX, and Speed.

PERFORMANCE

  • 20mph maximum assist level
  • Less torque for hauling heavy loads uphill
  • Entry level e-assist option

CX

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is BoschCX.png
  • More torque for powering up hills with heavy loads
  • 20mph maximum assist level
  • Ideal for most cargo bike riders

SPEED

  • Less torque for hauling heavy loads uphill
  • More speed, allowing riders to keep up with the pace of city traffic
  • 28mph maximum assist

See detailed Bosch component comparison charts here.

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:

  • plan to take long trips more often
  • want to charge your bike less often
  • want to go bike touring

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

Your battery: Dual Battery 1000

It looks like you can benefit from our most powerful battery combo the DualBattery 1000. This will give you roughly 50 – 100 miles of range. The Bosch DualBattery 1000 is achieved using two PowerPack 500 batteries and two battery cradles. With the included standard charger, it charges to 50% in 4 hours and 100% in 9 hours. Battery type: Lithium-ion. Please note that the battery range depends on a variety of conditions including hills, road conditions, weight on the bike, etc.
