  1. Question

    Dave

    Can the RFA utility carry two young kids on the back—two Yepp Next Maxi seats, or 2 other similar seats?

      Hey there, Dave! My co-worker Marie-Claire shared with me that the RFA Utility is not ideal for two rear seats. While the seats can fit, it would be tight for your passengers. She is going to send a picture to your email showing two Yepps on an RFA Utility. She will also be able to help you answer any additional questions. Hope that helps!

    Xtracycle is hands down the best cargo bike money can buy. I bought an RFA and it rides like a dream. The Bosch electric assist motor is quiet and the 4 different assist modes are perfect for any type of terrain you encounter, even with carrying groceries, dog and a passenger. The customer support is above 5 stars.

    Not just for people with children! The RFA is a great workhorse for any cargo. And for those of us who use city trails to fill the gap of bike lanes, it’s easy to transition from one surface to another…which means more fun time on the bike. Topping it off: that pedal assist is fantastic on my hill climb home.

  4. Question

    Diane

    There are two different step over heights listed for the RFA Utility. In the Geometry Section it is 23.375″ and in the Geometry Comparison it is 22.375″. Please confirm which it is. Thank you.

      Hey there, Diane! Apologies for having different numbers in each place. The actual step over is 22.375″. I’ll be sure to update this geometry chart!

  5. Question

    Dave

    Can you add an extra battery to the X1+ if you later decide it is needed?

      Hey there, Dave! Great question. It is always possible to purchase a second battery that you can use to replace a drained battery while out on a ride. When not in use, the second battery would just need to be stored in a bag when not in use. Modifying a bike built with one battery cradle to have TWO battery cradles after the initial build is more complicated. Two battery cradles would mean both batteries would be installed on the bike simultaneously and the motor would be pulling charge from both batteries at once. While charging, the bike would be charging both batteries at once. It can be done but will be most costly since you will need to have it done through a licensed Bosch dealer and they will have to open up the motor to rewire the system. If two batteries is something you think you might eventually want, it would be most cost effective and efficient to have at minimum a second cradle installed during the build and you can invest in the actual battery later.

      Hope that helps! If you have any follow up questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I myself am a rider who uses two batteries without a second cradle and wish I could go back in time and have that second cradle installed for ease and convenience. I’d be happy to share my thoughts and my experience if that would be useful. You can reach us at support@xtracycle.com!
