Cargo bikes are designed for practical transportation. Family Bicycles picked models that can transport people as well as stuff–you can’t just leave the kids at home!
It is just not possible for us to have every color and size of every model in stock. We can order anything from both companies with delivery generally in 5-7 days. We will make every effort to have at least one of the following models on the floor.
The different price levels and component offerings can be confusing–we’ve tried to narrow the choices for you. Please come on in and ask us all of your questions–we are here to help you find YOUR perfect bike!
Yuba: The most popular cargo bike for 5 years running! Available in 2 models (both are also available in electric!). The best bike for ditching the car for families with kids. Lots of options and accessories available.
Surly Big Dummy: Big Dummy is one of those cargo bikes that seem to be getting so much attention lately. Actually, the Big Dummy has been around for quite a while now. It’s built around the Longtail standard design platform, which means that Xtracycle or Surly accessories can be added depending on what you want to carry, or you can build your own to meet whatever hauling needs you have. However, being a dedicated single-piece frame instead of an add-on to an existing bike, it’s more stout and resistant to torsional flex, and this makes it ride better and last longer than longbike add-ons.
