Tern HSD: Recommended Accessories for Your New Electric Bike

Are you looking at the new Tern HSD electric bike? First off you, you can read my detailed Tern HSD review here. Next, I wanted to talk about accessories, what I would recommend and why.

Core Tern HSD Accessories

Cargo Hold 37 Bags $185

These bags were designed around the HSD, have a nice magnetic buckle and hold 74 L per pair. I have a set of these in the shop for review that I'll post soon. These will be arriving late December 2019

Kryptonite New York Noose Lock $110

One of my goto locks for expensive electric bikes. Easy to use and originally designed for the streets of New York.

Car Replacement HSD Accessories

Front Transporteur Rack - $160

Tern Go-To Bag $150

This bag slips on to the front of the Tern HSD or GSD and can lock on. I actually really like this as an everyday work bag as laptops, cameras, and all my stuff fit really well. This requires an adapter for your bike called a Luggage Truss CMT which is $55 and allows you to use many other bags/accessories with the bike and lock them on.

Kid Hauling HSD Accessories

Sometime in the spring of 2020 a new passenger kit and double kickstand will be available for this bike. I don't know many details beyond that. For now, here's what I would recommend to get you started. I'll update this article once I have a full write-up of the pros and cons for all options. 

Yepp Nexxt Maxi $230

Yepp Maxi Easy Fit $220

Yepp Junior $180 (We have these coming from Europe)
Kid hauling: yepp or yepp junior or sidekick bars and pad

Tern Side Kick Bars ($65) and Seat Pad ($55)
