If you’re looking to buy a cargo bicycle, it can become overwhelming. There are many different options out there. The average consumer doesn’t know all the ins and outs of cargo bikes. Luckily, we are here to help. Below let’s go over the most popular cargo bikes around.
Cargo Tricycles (AKA Cycle Rickshaws) - These types of bikes are widely used in Asia and Africa and are gaining popularity in North America. They feature a box or seat between the two wheels.
Electric Cargo Bikes - There has been a recent boom in e-bikes. Electric cargo bikes feature pedal-assist electric motors. While these cargo bikes are pricier than their counterparts, they’re an excellent investment for those traveling long distances.
Utility Bikes - These cargo bikes have a traditional body but offer reinforced frames. The frames allow riders to carry heavier loads than conventional bikes while still being agile and easy to ride. Often they come with front baskets or back racks, with some utility bikes featuring both.
Longtails - These types of cargo bikes feature an extra-long wheelbase at the back with a built-in deck. The added deck is ideal for carrying additional cargo or children. Longtails offer many added features, including but not limited to, hooks for webbing and open-top panniers.
