Arrives fully built and ready to ride
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!
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 Tektro 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!

Our high-power 500w motor delivers 45 Nm of torque and allows you to conquer hills and grocery runs like a boss. You'll feel like your legs just got an upgrade!
Expand below for a more detailed look at The Original
500W Hub Motor
The 500W DAPU M155 is our tried and true geared hub motor. With 45 Nm of torque, the motor makes riding a bike full of kids easy and FUN, even in hilly areas.
48v 13.6Ah Samsung Battery
Our batteries use only genuine Samsung 35E cells, which lead the e-bike industry in charge capacity and reliability. Has a range of 25-35 miles and takes 4-6 hours to charge from empty. Extremely high quality construction, using internal spray foam to keep battery cells waterproof and immovable, and featuring internal heat sensor cut offs, for years of durable and safe battery use.
Side-pull Comfort Thumb Throttle
Allows for full manual control of the motor, and can be used with, or independently of, pedal assist. The side-pull motion of the throttle fits the natural inward motion of your thumb, for maximum comfort and ease of use.
Spanninga Axendo 60 Headlight
Dutch company Spanninga has been innovating high-performance bicycle lights for nearly 100 years. The 60 lux output from 2 high-power REBEL© LEDs has amazing visibility from both front and lateral sides, lighting your way, and keeping you seen.
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.
Control Panel with USB Charger
Charge your phone while blasting Disney hits from your bluetooth speaker, using the built-in USB charger. Also features an odometer, speedometer, pedal assist level, and battery life indicator.
Torque Sensor Pedal Assist
Unlike magnet sensors, which can feel unnatural and can react slowly to changes in riding conditions, our torque sensor intuitively senses your pressure changes on the pedals, and adjusts the motor output exactly to your needs in real time!
UL Certified Smart Charger
Our Smart Charger automatically stops charging when your battery is full (and lets you know with the red/green LED indicator), protecting the life of your battery. The UL certification means it meets the strictest guidelines for electrical and fire safety, as well as longevity, resistance, and durability.
In the rare event that one of our high-quality electrical components fail, part replacement is a cinch, with waterproof quick-connectors right underneath the handlebars. No need to run wires through the frame or call a mechanic for most repairs!
Removable Locking Storage Benches
One of our customers' favorite features! Keep your helmets, rain cover, and shopping bags locked up and out of sight. Big grocery run and need more space? The benches slide out in under 5 seconds, no tools required!
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!
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. The bolt-less attachment system allows you to quickly remove 2 seat belts and a bench in seconds, without any tools, so you can quickly customize your bike for whoever, or whatever, is riding that day.
Dual EZ-Step System
Parents, give your back a break, as toddlers and big kids alike will be able to say "I did it!" after climbing into the box all by themselves. Two anti-slip textured child steps are located on either side of the box.
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.
Durable Marine-Grade Plywood
Designed for prolonged exposure in humid, wet, and coastal conditions, our coated marine plywood is assembled with waterproof glue and is resistant to delamination. With proper care, you'll enjoy years of outdoor use.
Be seen by on-coming traffic, even in the day time, with a tri-fecta of reflectors (say that 5 times fast!) on the front of the bike. Two shield-shaped reflectors mount onto the wood, and one is located underneath the head light.
Schwalbe Big Apple Tires
These tires are a Dream! Schwalbe's "Balloonbike" air-suspension technology makes a huge difference for the riding comfort of both rider and children.
Bumps and vibrations in the road are absorbed for a smooth, comfortable ride. While at the same time, the double-nylon Raceguard layer provides incredible durability and flat-tire protection... because no parent should have to change a flat on the side of the road while juggling toddlers!
Tektro Front and Rear Hydraulic Brakes
Your precious cargo will be super-safe thanks to the unbelievable stopping power provided by the Tektro Hydraulic Brakes on both front and rear wheels. They also require much less on-going maintenance than mechanical brakes.
Each brake lever is equipped with a parking brake switch, so that the bike stays still while you load up the kids.
8-Speed Shimano Gears
Combined with the motor, the 8-speed Shimano Acera shifter and gears will allow you to easily get started from a stop, as well as conquer any hill in your path.
Anti-Tip Smart Frame Technology
A cargo bike with 3 wheels handles differently than a regular bicycle. Turns have to be taken slower, especially when turning onto an incline. Our anti-tip smart frame technology helps counteract these forces by automatically leaning your weight into the direction of the turn, so that all wheels stay firmly planted.
Extended Handlebars for Upright Seating
Designed to provide comfortable upright posture, like riding a beach cruiser. The handlebars extend back to be within easy reach of riders of all sizes.
The gas-spring steering damper underneath the cargo box is beefier than our last model and minimizes side-to-side steering wobble. And at higher speeds, the bike tracks straighter as is safer to ride than a damper-less trike.
Improved Turning Radius
We adjusted the location of the steering bumpers to improve the turning radius of the bike over previous models. Turning the hassle of 3-point turns into easy 180s!
Easy-Adjust Selle Royal Saddle
The comfortable, Italian-designed Freeway City saddle is made by Selle Royal, the world's leading brand of bicycle saddles. Made for sitting upright, the Slow Fit Foam technology is a slow-moving memory foam that adapts to the body and guarantees uniform weight distribution.
Strong Square Frame with ED Coating
Frame design features durable square tubing, and is ED coated for long-lasting rust protection. The outside is CNC painted, not powder coated, for a beautiful, even finish.
Versatile Rear Rack
Load up your saddle bags or strap down the boogie board and cooler. Our rear rack will support up to 66 pounds of gear. Or add the Yepp child seat to bring along an extra kid!
Wide, Full Coverage Fenders
A must for any cargo bike, the full coverage front and rear fenders prevent water and mud from spraying up on you or the kids.

Keep the kids dry and comfortable
Yes this bike is well built and quality is better than most bikes.
Saw one of these bikes when another Dad was dropping the kids off at school. I thought it was just the coolest. My two kids are young enough to utilize it for a handful of years to come, so it was a no brainer to pop on one.
I had a control module go out on me, but the Support team was all over it. Sent me a new one and two days later I was up and running.
It made for the best halloween rig as well. Outfitted with lights, beverages and we hit every house this side of the Mississippi!
Kids love it, neighbors are jealous.
Hard to put into words how fun the Bunch Bike is. We have taken it on a ride every day since we got it. My 3 year-old daughter loves it, her toddler friends love it, and my neighbors even love it (a few have taken it on test drives themselves!). I've had a few cyclist stop and observe the "workings" of the bike, and they were each impressed at its mechanisms and design. The best addition to our family since we had our daughter! :)
So far so good, family enjoying bike
I don't often leave reviews- I am a very busy mom with 4 kids, one of whom has special needs. Just don't have time for reviews... but this bike deserves 5 stars and songs of praise. I love love LOVE biking around town with my children, including by 11 month old and my 3 year old special needs child. We live in a very hilly city, and the battery assist is amazing. Because it has 3 wheels, balancing isn't an issue and it feels very safe with my children. Only issue we have is with the rain cover's zippers- communication with Bunch's customer service has been stellar up to this point, and I imagine it will continue so as the rectify the issue.
I have two young children and this is such a perfect machine for getting out of the house with the kids. They like it, it's safe, and it's super efficient. When it's nice out I can go whole weekends without a car trip. It's just a great way to get around and I absolutely recommend this bike to anyone with a family.
This bike and the company are both outstanding. We recently bought a Bunch bike and while we were rolling it off of the box that it arrived in, my husband rolled it over a giant staple and popped a tire. I reached out to the company just to get information on how to change it, and they immediately sent me a brand new tire and instructions on how to fix it ourselves. The customer service team was amazingly responsive and very kind. That’s not always easy to find these days. I was impressed. The bike is so much fun to ride. I feel like a kid again, and my children absolutely love it. I have four kids and they all fit in it really easily. There is also room for another child on the back. It drives really smoothly and handles all of the hills by our house with no problem. I cannot recommend this bike enough. It has definitely exceeded all of our expectations!
I got a Bunch bike because I don't drive and I needed a way to get my infant daughter and toddler niece around on trips that are too long for the stroller.
But...while I may have gotten it for utilitarian purposes, the girls like it so much they want to ride around just for fun! We use it to go to daycare, the playground, to haul stuff back and forth between the two houses, and just for joyrides to see the neighborhood! The e-assist is more than enough and kids love to wave to us. One of my favorite parts is that the girls can see the world going by so much better than they can in a car!
We have put over 100 miles on our Bunch Bike so far. The kids really enjoy it and are full of smiles. It handles easier than I had expected. Can’t safely turn at high speeds so we have to be careful. The electric assist works well and makes long rides very pleasant. I appreciate the integrated head and tail lights. My main dislike is how bumpy the bike is when going on rough or irregular surfaces, even with the seat cushions; we have to be mindful of really slowing down over bumps.
We use our bike every day to get to/from preschool, gym class, swimming lessons, the park, the grocery store, restaurants, friends houses - you name it. It's our preferred (and much faster) mode of transportation where we live in the greater Boston (read: lotsss of traffic) area. Our 2 and 4 year olds adore it - they can sing, play, and snack freely while we're moving from place to place. The seat cushions are key as the roads around here aren't super smooth. The removeable bench seats are an awesome feature - we removed the top (part for sitting) of one of the benches and now we have a storage area for backpacks and gear so things don't slide around while in transit. 10/10!
