For 2015 Xtracycle has joined forces with Bosch to bring their Edgerunner to market with the Bosch Performance Line mid drive system. The new 10E will feature the Bosch 350 watt mid drive system with a 36V 11ah lithium battery and that will enable riders to do more with their bike. Xtracycle’s message is “Ride bikes. Carry Stuff” and the new 10E definitely embodies that! In addition to being utilitarian, the folks at Xtracycle also know how to have fun. At Interbike they had The Bean Machine, a coffee shop set up on a 10E and for the end of the day they had the beer bike with a keg of New Belgium beer on a traditional Edgerunner.

Right now the Pedalist is still in the prototype stage but Virtue Bike is planning to make it a reality soon with a Kickstarter campaign.

Out for a New Year’s Eve ride with the whole family on the bike in Portland, Oregon, we had a rear wheel puncture about eight miles from the house we were staying at.
