Do it all
Discover the ultimate cargo bicycle, a shape-shifting, do-it-all machine designed to handle whatever you want to haul—and evolve with your needs. Whether you want a fully personalized electric cargo bike or a classic mechanical ride, we made the Edgerunner Classic for you.
The Classic is an all-around hauling machine: kids, cargo, grown-ups, you name it.
The Xtracycle Edgerunner Classic is very much like our Edgerunner Swoop.
It has all the same great Xtracycle innovations …
Compatible with a range of add-on components so you can build up a bike exactly for you
Smaller rear wheel that provides a super stable ride even fully loaded with kids or cargo
Comes in a fully human-powered version or a Bosch-powered electric-assist version
The biggest difference from the Swoop is that the Classic has a more traditional triangle frame.
So while the Swoop has a lower “step-over height” — and is slightly easier to get on and off of, the Classic will be a better fit for taller riders.
But to some degree the choice is aesthetic, and the Classic was also designed with a relatively low step-over height, compared with many other bikes.
Now listen: We understand that a quality cargo bike is an investment.
We ask you to consider everything this bike is capable of — and realize that if you have two cars in the family, you might end up selling one.
Or if you have one car, and that’s getting to be not enough, a cargo bike may well be a better investment than a second car: better for you, better for the planet, better for your kids, and a lot less expensive.
We’ve seen our customers replace a car with a bike, many times.
Please schedule a “meet-up” — a 15-minute phone chat with a member of our expert staff.
Don’t worry. We don’t do the high-pressure sales thing. We simply want to help you make the right choice.

The nitty-gritty features
Rear rack: Comes with a large beefy rear rack and wheelskirts that can accommodate two Cargo Bays, or a SlingSet and more. Carry four bags of groceries. Ginormous diaper bags. Whatever else. You’ll be amazed what people can haul on an Xtracycle.
Junior Copilot system: Set the bike up for your family, just the way you need it with our range of ingenious, genuine Xtracycle accessories and/or the fantastic Yepp seat. Like the bike itself, quality and safety are woven into their design and manufacture.
Safety fork: Our worry free Xtracycle Signature Safety Fork is built from strong, durable 4130 Chromoly steel, and has an ultra-secure thru-axle.
Don’t be invisible: Front and rear Bright-Sight lights are built in on e-bikes, and powered by the e-assist system. No changing batteries. No plugging them in. No forgetting them at home. They’re just always there, crazy bright, whenever you need them.
Stopping power: Reliable, powerful Shimano hydraulic brakes.
E-assist option: Classics can be purchased as purely mechanical bikes, or with Bosch electric-assist. We choose Bosch because they meet our standards for quality and reliability. And it’s ridiculously fun.
20” rear wheel: The Classic has a 20-inch rear wheel, which provides a lower center of gravity for an amazingly stable ride even with kids and cargo.
No tipping: Our super stable Kickback centerstand included with all Swoops.
Assembled by pros: Every Classic we sell direct from the website is built up by our staff mechanics just the way you want it. It goes through a 71-point safety/assembly checklist. No assembly for you. None. No worries you’ve done something wrong. Just peace of mind and confidence.
Big Box of Happiness: Then we ship it right to your door. 100% ready to ride. It’ll get lowered off the truck and with 10 minutes of unboxing, you’ll be out making the world a better place. It’s that easy.
