Looking for a stable bike to cruise around NE Denver with all of your kids?
We are now a Bunch Bikes dealer and have the electric and non-electric Original trike cargo bikes for demo rides! This is a nice way to replace car trips around the neighborhood while keeping up to 4 kids nice and protected from the weather with the optional rain cover.
In the future, I'll write up a comparison between a front loading trike like this one that does not articulate compared to my beloved Urban Arrow or Bullitt style front box bike. In summary, this is a great bike to replace car trips around the neighborhood, provide a nanny or an aupair that you don't want to go very quickly. This bike is not fast and doesn't handle turns at speed very well. That being said, it is steady, reliably built, and can fit 4 kids under that weather cover!
A trike is nice and steady. I once helped import Christiania trikes to the US. They were wonderful bikes but expensive to ship, a long wait time, and very frustrating if you needed a replacement part or accessory. Bunch Bikes is based in Austin and make affordable but not TOO cheap of a bike. This is a great segway for someone with multiple children, wanting something easy to hop in and out of, or a different option other than a car for their children's care providers. Personally, our Aupair has been demoing the non-electric version and has really enjoyed it.
The Original Trike Cargo Bike
Starting at $2500 for none electric, $3500 for electric
Includes 2 benches with locking storage, 1x8 shifting, front disc brakes. Fits rider heights 5’2” to 6’5”
These are available for demo. Set up an appointment to try one!
The Swift Cargo Bike
Starting at $2000 for non-electric and $3000 for electric. This is a two-wheel cargo bike good for 1-2 kids. Faster, more nimble, but not as steady as the Original trike cargo bike.
We do not have one of these in yet but I hope to try one out soon.
The Preschool Cargo Bike
Starting at $4000, only available in electric and it holds 6 children!!
The biggest of the bunch.. the Preschool Cargo Bike is a game-changer for your preschool, in-home daycare… or a really big family! The kids will have the time of their life, riding with their friends to the park or library. And you won’t even break a sweat, as the 500w electric motor powers your highly visible school-bus-yellow bike around town. All at a fraction of the cost of buying a transport van for your center!
We don't have one of these but please someone give me a reason to order it!
If you are interested in the Bunch Original Cargo Bike I have an article and video that you can watch over on the overview of the Bunch original cargo bike.

I talk about pedals a lot at the bike shop and while building up a customer's new cargo bike I was reminded about how much a good pedal can change the ride of a bike completely. Here are my musings for pedals on electric and cargo bikes but can probably be applied to any everyday style bike.
