One of the cool new trends in electric bikes is the electric cargo or utility bike.
These are neat because they allow you to run errands and pick up things while you are out and about.
The electric motor gives you a quiet assist with these heavier loads. Combining the electric assist with the ability to easily carry significant cargo makes these bikes a nice alternative to driving a car.
This bike in particular is a new electric cargo bike from TREK called the Transport +.
Here are some brief specs.
- Aluminum frame
- 350 watt motor
- Battery is housed in rear rack (see picture)
- Cargo bags
- Rear rack (folds up when not in use)
- Front rack
- Front and rear lights
- Wide stance kickstand
- Front disc brake
- Looks like a good component package
