WE SPECIALIZE IN ALL THINGS CARGO

We’ve been working with electric cargo bikes since we first opened in 2011. Designed to transport heavy loads, the cargo bikes we sell are of the highest quality. We have visited many of the manufacturers’ headquarters overseas, from the Urban Arrow factory in Amsterdam to Riese & Müller’s homebase in Germany, and seen first hand the dedication to detail by the brands we carry.

IS A CARGO BIKE RIGHT FOR ME?

If you’re aiming to get outside more often with family, or take fewer trips by car, an electric cargo bike is certainly worth considering. With a cargo bike you still have the ability to carry all your stuff—from groceries to your most precious cargo.

Cargo bikes are also great for businesses, especially those doing deliveries in dense urban areas. It’s often quicker and more efficient to zip around by bike as opposed to a van.

Certain cargo bikes can also help you on outdoorsy adventures, whether you’re carrying camping gear on a long-distance trip, or simply riding some easy trails.

Families

For a parent bringing kids to and from multiple locations, an electric-assist cargo bike can offer greater flexibility and speed than either a car or public transit. Bonus: you can park right in front.

Businesses

For a small business owner, an electric-assist cargo bike can enable more efficient deliveries or service calls. With electric-assist, you won’t get tired, and parking tickets are a thing of the past.

Adventurers

For someone who wants a comfortable adventure, an electric-assist cargo bike lets you go to the beach, ride on trails, camp, or even just picnic–with all your stuff and maybe the dog, too.

CARGO BIKE STYLES FOR EVERY RIDER

Whatever type of cargo you plan on transporting, whether it’s kids, pets, groceries, deliveries and more, there are different types of cargo bikes that are uniquely qualified to handle different types of jobs. The three main styles of cargo bikes are rear loading or longtail cargo bikes, front loading cargo bikes (also known as “bakfiets” or “Long Johns”) and mid tail cargo bikes.

Rear-loading cargo bikes (also called “longtails”) such as the Tern GSD or Benno Boost, are one of the more popular types partly because they look and feel more like a traditional bike. The cargo—often children!—goes on a built-in rack located behind the rider. Longtail cargo bikes are typically a little lighter and more maneuverable than front-loading cargo bikes.

Front-loading cargo bikes, such as the Urban Arrow Family or Riese & Muller Load, are electric-assist versions of the traditional Dutch bakfiets. The front of the frame is extended, and there is typically some sort of cargo area between the rider and the smaller front wheel. They are heavier than rear-loaders, and some of the cargo areas even come with built-in seats and seatbelts, a great feature if you plan to transport kids.

WHAT MAKES A BENNO A BENNO?

Benno Baenziger designs as much for himself as he does his customers, by designing bikes he would want to ride. With the understanding that the only person he truly knows and understands is himself, it’s just one of the ways he comes out with an honest product: “There’s honesty in that design process,” Baenziger says.

The Boost E10 D SPEED is the only Benno that is dual battery compatible (a second mount can be installed by a Benno dealer on the SPEED only). For models that are not dual battery compatible, or for those who don’t want to commit to having another mount installed, there is always the option of purchasing an extra battery to keep in your backpack or pannier to swap out for some extra miles.

All models come with either a 400wh or 500wh Bosch PowerPack (depending on the model), providing an average range of 45-60 miles. Want to know more about range? Check out this post.

All Benno models can be ridden on smooth, maintained dirt roads, but are not built for rough trails or any serious off-road riding. While Benno Bikes certainly have a Southern California aesthetic, they’re not meant to be ridden through sand either.

Benno frames carry a five year warranty for the original owner, the components have a one-year warranty (excluding tires, tubes and cables), and Benno branded accessories are warrantied for one year, provided they’ve been properly installed by an authorized Benno dealer.
