2019 BUYING GUIDES

Best Cargo Bike (and My Fave)

Tern GSD

The Tern GSD S10 (9/10, WIRED Recommends) is my favorite cargo bike (of those I’ve tested), and the one I would buy if I had the ca-ching. Tern used a number of creative design tweaks to make the bike easy to ride—for example, small 20-inch fat motorcross tires help keep the bike’s length equal to an average road bike. The rear rack is also lower for better stability, and the battery and motor are under the rack, rather than mounted on the downtube.

You can also store it standing up on its end. That’s in addition to a customizable Bosch motor, which you can upgrade to a double-battery system. My local bike shops have trouble keeping it in stock.
