Electric cargo bikes can come with a chassis design featuring two, three or four wheels.
Two-wheeled cargo e-bikes are very popular because they feel just like a regular bike to ride. They can feature a front-load bucket for your cargo or they could have a long tail with your load mounted behind you. A Tern GSD demonstrates this approach.
Three-wheeled cargo e-bikes provide extra stability when riding with heavy loads and can help to ease the task of loading or unloading thanks to the extra width that a three-wheel arrangement creates. A Babboe Curve-E is one example of this design in action.
Four-wheeled cargo e-bikes are relatively new and are usually designed for commercial use (e.g. logistics and heavy freight businesses). This extremely stable layout provides the most stability and load carrying capacity, but these models are very large and arguably the least manoeuvrable.
The best way to work out which is best for you is to try them out, so we recommend dropping into one of our nationwide stores and asking the in-store experts to arrange a test ride of their available cargo bikes. Alternatively, get in touch before your visit to ensure that we have suitable models available.
