    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.
