Room for the Whole Family (or Class!)

The roomiest of our cargo bikes, the long benches extend over each wheel, giving lots of internal space. A one-of-a-kind way for families with 4-6 kids to get around town!  

 

For outdoor preschools and daycares, a fleet of 2 or 3 Preschool cargo bikes will transport the whole class. Kids will have a blast riding with their friends, and learning about alternative transportation and living an active lifestyle... while going on field trips!

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

Our new state-of-the-art 48v 13.6Ah battery features genuine Samsung 35E cells, the best and most reliable cells available in the e-bike market today. Get up to 35 miles per charge and enjoy years of use on your bike.

 

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!

Technical Specifications

Electronics

500w Electric cargo bike motor

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.

 

Samsung e-cargo bike battery in rack

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.

 

e-bike throttle on Preschool cargo bike handlebars

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 electric cargo bike headlight

Integrated Headlight

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

 

Spanninga Lineo tail light on rear of cargo bike

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.

 

electric cargo trike display unit on handlebars

Control Panel Display

Features an odometer, speedometer, pedal assist level, and battery life indicator.

 

Electric torque sensor for cargo bike

Pedal Assist

Sensitive 12-magnet speed sensor automatically outputs electric motor power based on the rate you're pedaling.

 

48v charger for electric family bike

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.

 

Waterproof connectors for cargo bike electric system

Waterproof Quick-Connectors

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!

 

The Cargo Box

Interior of The Preschool cargo bike bucket

Long Benches with 6 Seats

Plenty of seating space and leg room to hold up to 6 children. 6 over-the-shoulder seat belts are included.

 

Closeup of wood panels on The Preschool

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.

 

3 point seat belts on The Preschool

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!

 

Rubber edge liner on The Preschool cargo 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.

 

Open child door on front of The Preschool daycare bike

Swing Open Front Door

Save your back.... no need to lift all of your children into the bike by hand. The front door is the easy and fun way for kids to let themselves in. The heavy-duty dual latches on front keep it secure so that there's no chance of it coming open while riding.

Great Community Builder

We have enjoyed our custom Bunch Preschool so much! It has made a great impact on the community and allowed us to have even more participants on our group rides. Looking forward to sharing it with more families in the future.

Thanks so much Gina!

I'm happy to see your Bunch Bike being used as a rolling billboard for bike advocacy in Cleveland and that it is getting others able to participate in your rides!

An absolute blast

We’re approaching 400 miles in just 4 weeks. We’ve hardly used the cars and take the bike everywhere. The PreSchool has been awesome as we pick up kids from the neighborhood for camp. Worth every penny and happy to be helping promote Bunch here in Western New York!

Hey Neil,

That's what I'm talking about, way to go! You guys are power users and I'm glad to see you're getting money's worth!

Bunch Bikes Review

As a busy mama on nine, we absolutely love this bike! It’s so easy to use and operate. It makes family outings for a walk or to the park much easier. I love that I can get a full workout or rely fully on the electric part of it. We are obsessed!

Hey Lena,

Look at that fully loaded Pre-k, you're awesome! Glad it's easy to handle and that it's made your daily life with kids easier.

Thanks for the pics, you've got a full load of fun!

Glad the kids are having a blast!

This thing is AWESOME!

For the price, my expectations were pretty high for the school bus, and my expectations have been exceeded so far. After three longer rides of a few miles (in below freezing temperatures), the bike has performed incredibly well. The electric assist is plenty powerful, the seatbelts/harnesses fit my 9 year old, 7 year old, and 4 year old daughters well. We now ride the bike to school whenever the Illinois weather allows, and they love it. We now have time to just ride and talk and I am hopeful that this investment in our transportation will provide plenty of opportunities to connect and stories to share for their lifetimes and mine. Thank you for building such a great product for our family!

Your kids will never forget the memories! Glad you guys are loving the bike! - Aaron @ Bunch

I love it!

I love this bike, and so do all the kids! It's so much fun, and easy to get around. I had a very minor problem with the door when the bike arrived, but the people at Bunch were awesome, providing an easy solution really quickly. The bolts holding the hinge just needed a minor adjustment, it only took a minute to fix.

Love our bunch bike!

We have four children under the age of 9 and this has been a game changer. The bike shipped quickly and was easy to complete the final installation- we purchased it assembled. I’m so excited that we purchased this bike :)

This bike puts the joy in Joyful Tots!

Being an urban nature-based childcare can be a challenge. Packing up all of our gear to walk 45 minutes with the strollers became such a chore even when heading to the places we love to explore. Now we load up the kids and our gear only to be deep in the woods or at our sit spot by the river in minutes. It’s rides beautiful and I don’t ever feel unsteady even with it loaded up with 6 kids. The electric assist means I can still walk and run with the kids after our two mile ride. It is beyond amazing! ❤️ Customer service was also so helpful and very respectful.

Love it!

This bike is a life changer for any parents who love biking but find that it's no easy task now that they are loaded down with a hefty number of tiny people. If you love biking long distances and your children outnumber the seatbelts in a bike trailer, this is the bike for you!
