The Original Bunch Bike offers two options for the front panel: 

 

The Front Bench option maximizes seating. Passengers can use the front or rear bench, for a total of four seats and four seatbelts. However, the front bench is not compatible with the front door. Passengers can use the steps on the side panel to climb into the cargo area or can be lifted over the side. 

 

The Front Door option allows easier access to the cargo area for large dogs and passengers with limited mobility. Passengers can use the rear bench only, for a total of two seats and two seatbelts. However, the front door is not compatible with the front bench. 

 

It is possible to switch between the front panel options. Switching from Front Door to Front Bench or vice versa takes approximately 5 minutes. If desired, you can order an additional front panel here.

Room for the Whole Family

One of the best parts of the #cargobikelife is figuring out how many things you can do with your new bike. 4 kids to the library? Check. 2 Labradoodles to the dog park? Double check. 1 party on wheels blasting the Disney Hits playlist? Yeah, you get the picture.

 

The benches and seat belts easily remove in seconds, with no tools required, so it's simple to quickly customize your bike to match whatever you have to haul today!

Unbelievable Stopping Power

With an electric cargo bike, it's crucial to have brakes that can handle a heavy bike traveling at fast speeds. This year, we took things up a notch and added ultra-powerful front and rear hydraulic disc brakes. A small squeeze on the levers will bring you to a stop almost instantly. and you can rest assured that your precious cargo will be super secure.

 

One unique challenge with cargo bikes, is that the front two brakes must be perfectly balanced at all times in order to be safe to ride. With mechanical brakes, this means you'd have to find the time for frequent service and inconvenient tune-ups. Hydraulic brakes overcome this, by requiring much less on-going maintenance. So you can spend less time in the shop, and more time out riding with the fam!

Your Cargo Bike Can GO

Integrated Headlight

60 lux output from 2 high-power LEDs. Integrated into the electric system so you can turn on from the handlebars.

 

Built-In Spanninga Lineo Tail Light

2 bright and distinctive LED "Light Lines" provide extremely high performance, with rear and side visibility up to nearly 2000 feet. The light is built into the battery pack, and can be turned on from the handlebars, just like the headlight.

3-point seat belts in cargo bike with shoulder clip

No-Slip Shoulder Clips

One of our biggest frustrations with other cargo bike seat belts, is how they tend to slip off the shoulders while riding, especially on taller children. Our adjustable no-slip clips, go behind the shoulders, and prevent any slippage, keeping your children secure for the whole ride!

 

Wood cargo box with seat belts

Easy-Remove 3-Point Seat Belts

Each bike includes four 3-point seat belts to keep your kids (and their friends, who will definitely be wanting rides!) safe and secure.

cargo box with rubber edge

Protective Rubber Liner

After years of selling cargo bikes, we've learned that 90% of cargo box wear-and-tear occurs along the top edge. In our case, from hanging kids' bikes over the top! The protective rubber liner will prevent all top-edge damage, and prevent rain and moisture from penetrating the wood, giving you years of use, while providing a nice aesthetic trim.

Incredible customer service

I have to say that I had the best experience asking questions and ultimately buying my bike from Bunch. Impeccable customer service. I had an absurd number of questions and they were kind, patient and informative. Double thumbs up.

Hey Matthew,

A bike like this is a big investment and it's not for everyone. It can take a lot of questions about your personal situation and use case to figure out if it's going to be the bike you need. So no, it wasn't an absurd number of questions! Whatever it takes to feel comfortable, we're happy to help customers out!

I'm glad to hear you had a great experience!

Amazing!

I got it to ride with my toddler who loves outside time and hates the car. I use it more without her! I commute to work as a music teacher and can load all my instruments and gear with one of the benches removed. It feels so stable and is FUN to ride. I am amazed at how helpful the pedal assist is for going up hills. The throttle helps get going from a standstill at red lights or stop signs. I can't wait to ride with my daughter, but in the meantime am loving commuting three days a week cargo bike style. I LOVE my bunch bike.

Hey Jamie,

Fun fact, in the distant past I was a school music teacher, and if I had had a Bunch Bike back then, I would've been a sight to see riding around town with my double bass. Good on you for getting your commutes done car-free!

Your daughter will love it more and more as she grows. Sounds like you guys have years of fun family memories to come!

Best purchase of my life!

Moved to a new home right next to bike bath. HATE DRIVING A CAR! Beyond thrilled to safely take my two kiddos on daily rides. I felt 100 times safer in this than all of the other E -Cargo Bikes I text drove. I am a buncherr for life!

Hey Laina,

I hate driving my car too :)

Welcome to the Bunch life... the stability of 3 wheels is a game changer for practicality riding with kids... and handles better than 2 wheels in the winter weather (as I'm sure you've noticed!)

Fun bike-riding for the entire family!

The Bunch is a really enjoyable and practical way of transporting multiple kiddos. Before this bike, and while we only had a single child, I would ride my solo e-bike while baby-wearing our daughter. However, at 3-years-old, she was starting to get a little heavy and too tall to continue this for much longer; and once we had two kids and our youngest could be apart from his mother long enough, I needed to up my game. I wanted to keep having the kids in front where I can see them and interact with them rather than put them in a bike trailer, so I searched around and found Bunch as the perfect solution. The Bunch has been great for that -- a ton of fun for me to ride, and with both the 3-year-old and the 10-month-old (in a toddler seat) enjoying it as well. We've taken in on several rides already, both during daytime and night-time -- and both rain and shine -- and it's been a blast in each of those conditions!

The bike handles pretty well on a gravel road, and up a pretty steep (~18% grade) gravel hill -- though of course it feels smoother to ride once we get to pavement or a well-packed gravel road.

The bike isn't perfect, but I think it's the best that exists on the market today. There are a few improvements I would love to see Bunch make, and I've given feedback on some of those items already. Most notably, the thumb throttle being impacted by the passive-assist setting is a poor design choice (i.e., you can't be on level 0 and still use the throttle, you need to bump up the PAS level first; however, I hear that it's on their radar to improve eventually, decoupling the throttle from the pedal-assist level). The motor isn't silent, which is a bummer (by contrast, it's silent on my solo e-bike from Rad Power Bikes), but it's also not too loud -- and on the flat I just put the bike into assist level 0 and get some excercise, whereas once I need the extra help I don't care how loudly the motor whines. Other small things: the headlights could be brighter (but it's easy to just attach a standalone bike light); and the toddler seat faces forward rather than backwards by default and doesn't have shock-absorption (but I did a DIY modification to have it face towards me, and sit atop the cushion for some shock-absorption on the bumpy gravel road).

Overall it's a great family bike, by a company that's got fantastic customer service and a really positive and helpful Facebook group (search for "Bunch Bikes Club: Owners & Friends"). I'm glad I got the bike, have already recommended it to friends, and look forward to riding it with the family for many years to come!

Hey Michael,

As always, we really appreciate your feedback and I'm glad you've shared it here.

All things you mentioned are on are radar and things we're working on improving behind the scenes, thanks for sharing the honest pros and cons!

I'm glad you guys are getting a lot of use out of the bike!

Great all round experience

From ordering the bike to delivery and after I’m very happy with Bunch Bike.
Customer rep and the communication was truly great! Editing the phrase on the bike along with a couple other items went smooth and felt the communication response time was better than I have experienced with anything else lately. Very surprised if that…. Now the bike it came very well packaged and fully assembled another great thing! The brakes, pedals and quality of everything seems very well built. Very glad I trusted Bunch Bike and quality matches the price as purchasing a quality electric assisted bike isn’t a small purchase.
If I had one question or suggestion I would encourage Bunch bike to do is to take a look at the seat and consider making ledge for seat slightly taller and a bit deeper. Hoping my daughter will be able to be utilize the box seating for many years and I feel the. Offer she gets the less comfortable that seat will be. Possibly design a box front area for older children or adults with disabilities that can safely ride in the box area?
Thank you again for the quality service and Bike greatly appreciate quality communication.

Hi Greg,

That's feedback that we've gotten a lot... that customer's experience with us is better than most other companies they've done business with. That's been the case for years, and going above and beyond in all situations is something we really pride ourselves on.

And thanks for the suggestions on the seat height. The bike is most optimized for younger children, as the majority of our customers have children in this age bracket. Having the ability to customize seating to be more comfortable for older children / adults is definitely something that would be of value to some families.

Enjoy the bike!

Perfect Purchase

I have had my Bunch Bike for only one month and in that time it has completely transformed the way my family and I get around. We put over 100 miles on it already. We use the bike to get to school, shop for groceries, go to the recycling center, visit the playground, go out to dinner and just about anything else you can imagine inside of 10 miles from our home. My kids, aged 7, 3, and 3 all love the bike and they are so happy when we go anywhere on it. Nearly everywhere we go we get compliments. All of the girl's friends want to ride the bike when they come over to our house. I am so thankful we made this purchase for our family. It has gotten us out of the house more often and is keeping my spouse and I in shape as we bike the kids around the neighborhood. This bike is a full car replacement and it costs less than just the options would on a new car.

Hey Justin,

If there was a quintessential way to describe the magical experience of owning a Bunch Bike, then you've just captured it in this review.

So happy the bike has changed your life in a very positive way.

Togetherness and fresh air

We love our new bike. The learning curve isn’t bad. I can even manage a rather treacherous steep turn of the bike path.

My girls love our new ride to school, the fresh air and the exercise. We put our scooters in so they ride alongside sometimes.

Hi Audrey,

Thanks for sharing your experience!

There is definitely a learning curve to the bike, but like you said, it's not bad, and anyone can learn to do it!

Glad your kids are getting to experience the independence of scooting themselves, with the added benefit of being able to hop in when their tired or worn out... that's a great way to keep them smiling!

Our new favorite thing!

We absolutely love our bunch bike! I thought we would stop using it as in the fall like we did with all our other e-bikes but we have gotten so much fall and even winter use here in Utah because of the rain cover and trike style. It’s easier to ride in snow and my kiddo stays warmer and doesn’t deal with wind chill. It’s amazing and such a worthy investment.

Hi Annie,

I'm glad to hear that your bike is getting continued use in the Utah winter!

The weight of the bike and the 3 wheels certainly makes it way better for stability and handling in snow and ice conditions than a normal bicycle.

Our bikes can truly be a car replacement year round!

My new minivan!

I love the Bunch Bike! I have two children. During covid I managed to drop them off at daycare/school with walking and using a bike trailer. Drop offs require navigating a very busy intersections, so I'm not comfortable with them riding themselves. We bought a long-tail cargo bike from another company. My spouse loves it, but I do not feel stable on it. I've tipped over a few times. Queue the Bunch Bike (Trike).

I've had it for two weeks now, and not looking back! This will be my new vehicle. It's so zippy if you need it, but also able to cruise without pedal assist.

I have theft- deterrents. The Cafe lock alone should deter theft, as it would require clipping every spoke to be able to take it, but I also have the heavy-duty Kryptonite chain and U-lock, and feel comfortable taking it anywhere.

If you are looking into a stable, zippy, crazy- awesome cargo bike, this is the winner.

Hi Mikhail,

Thank you for sharing your experience and your journey through the world of family biking. The stability of 3 wheels is the biggest reason so many people end up loving our bike and making it a central part of their daily life.

As far as security goes, you should also check and see if your homeowner's insurance policy will allow you to cover the bike... many do!

FreeDom!

I've not had a chance to ride/train on the bike yet. By the time I get off work its dark and on the weekends, I have errands and things to do around the apartment. And I've lost a lot of weight and now my prosthetic leg doesn't fit so I have to (again) go back for refitting and PT. So I just go and sit on the bike with the manual and practice that way. So when I can ride I'll know all there is about it. I also rewatch the video too. I did put the cargo nets on and filled up the storage box. I'm getting some latern lights to hand on the back by the door so I can be seen a little better. But, I am So IN MAJOR LOVE WITH MY BUNCH BIKE. I cannot wait to do a Bunch of stuff and go to a bunch of places around town that I couldn't otherwise get to on public transportation. HEY, I get it, hence the name Bunce Bike, huh!?

Oh. I will be ordering another charger for when I'm out and about. I have a strong feeling I'm going to need it. I will be sending photos as soon as I can. Best investment I've ever made!

Hey Adrienne,

We did a survey a while back about our customer's meaningful experiences with the bike, and the word 'freedom' was one that came up over and over again for various reasons. Freedom to explore the city, freedom to get out of the house and be active with all of the kids in tow, freedom for those who cannot drive for one reason or another.

And yes, I had a BUNCH of ideas for brand names and there's a BUNCH of reasons I chose BUNCH: you've got the whole BUNCH on a bike (like the brady BUNCH), you can carry a BUNCH of stuff, and also the possibility for a BUNCH of puns and jokes that will never get old (probably?).

It also costs a Bunch of money, but that's because it's an investment in a quality bike that changes your lifestyle. For those replacing car trips (my family of 4 has never owned a 2nd car), it more than pays for itself on gas/insurance/maintenance alone, without adding in all the additional benefits (better physical and mental health, quality time and memories with my children, feeling more connected to our city and neighborhood).

Like you, many others have told us this was the best purchase/investment that they've ever made. It's a product that changes lives.

Thanks for taking the time to leave your review and share your experience.
