Arrives fully built and ready to ride
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!
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 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!

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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 your kids and stuff out of the elements with our new and improved rain cover design. Made of premium weather-resistant materials, the side flaps unzip and roll up for easy loading, or to provide airflow once the weather passes. Sewn in corner elastics make it quick and easy to install the cover nice and tight.
Pictured is the cover for The Original bike. The Pre-School rain cover is similar, but pictures won't be available until June.

Customize your Preschool to fit your family's needs!
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.
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!
Getting children outside everyday into nature is an integral part of my programming for my daycare. Before my preschool bike came along we could only go so far with a stroller.
Now our options are endless....the bike brings us joy every single day and so many new places to explore.
When we pass people they can’t help but smile.....
The bike is quality and feels well made. Ride is smooth and effortless.
Customer service feels like your chatting to family. Nothing is too much trouble and I’m so happy to be part of the Bunch family.
We love our Bunch Bike! I own an inhome child care and this has given us the freedom to roll all over town. The older kiddos can ride their balance bikes while I take the littles in the Bunch bike. Yhe battery typically lasts at least two outings so I also love that I dont have to charge it every day.
That’s the question I get asked every day and I love it! We love to get outside, I love the exercise and I love to talk to my kids and see the world together from our new cargo bike. Thanks Bunch Bikes for your great customer service and product!❤️
So much better than I even imagined- amazing bike 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
The Preschool Bike is an excellent tool for hauling around 6 kids in town. It fits on a sidewalk, which is a big bonus. The door latch was not quite closing but I fixed it with a shim. The electric assist is working very well and it's plenty fast! I bought a rain cover and a zipper broke when I put it on. It seems like it's a bit tight. We appreciated the hand written note thanking us for our purchase. We get lots of comments when we are riding around.
Thanks for the review!
That's strange about the door. We check them all here before shipping, maybe something happened in transit, or it possibly slipped through the cracks. I'm glad you found a solution that works for you though.
We're actually re-designing the preschool rain covers right now and hope to have them in a couple of months. We've had a few people have a similar issue. We'll offer free replacements once we get those in.
-Aaron from Bunch
We love our Bunch Bike! The preschool model seats 6 children and the customer service is great.
The kids beg us to take the Bunch Bike everywhere! It is such a fun way for the family to spend time together, even when doing basic daily tasks such as running errands!
As a licensed in-home daycare provider, getting "out and about" was often challenging, even with a 6 seater stroller. When I came across the preschool bunch bike, I instantly knew this was the way to take my kiddos day from ordinary to extraordinary. Needless to say, the preschool bunch bike did not disappoint. Our first ride consisted of 10 easy miles with 7 children strapped in and nothing but smiles. They begged me to go again on their next day of care. We are looking forward to many years of adventures through our bunch bike. Thank you for providing fun for the children I care for, the opportunity for adventure, and the countless memories!
