    But Aran, how does it perform on some sweet singletrack or an enduro line, because you’ve tried it yeah?

    Couldn’t have done our Hebtroco deliveries this week without Aran and his pedal powered assistance. Cheers!

    They never lose their charm. I’ve been on the highest roads in the valley, during sideways hail, and been giggling at how content I am plodding along on a cargo bike. Great write-up, Aran!

    There MIGHT be one around a certain North Wales power station called the Pashley Loadstar Stores Grand Prix, but it’s not exactly publicly accessible so the KoM will never get taken off me the current holder.

    I already have a serious hankering for a Tern GSD and this isn’t helping.

    I’ve had one a few years now. Absolutely brilliant for karting me and the kids around. Use it on a daily basis at least once.

    Nice one Aran.
    Looks fun. Could I get an 8×4 sheet of ply on one? 🤔 😅

    Great article Aran! We (Cargodale) will have ecargobikes to try on Todmorden market from 2pm if anyone wants a go. Pop in and say hi 🙂

    I’m seriously considering an Ecargo bike when I retire.
    It’ll replace the car, and i can go as far as i like with doggo in it. Or camping.
    Shopping.
    Exercise, getting a 50kg bike out the shed will be a workout in its own right.

    Nicely done, Aran. It’d be good to see more bikes and fewer vans round here, too.

    @Matthew Hornby I haven’t tried it on anything gnarlier than a bridleway track, in fear of damaging it, but I did find that it gripped quite well today in the wet thanks I guess to it being so heavy.
