Wild, young, America is losing interest in the automobile. Once a symbol of speed and freedom, the car now signifies a nagging monthly payment, another thing to maintain, another mouth to feed, with gallons of expensive earth-polluting fuel each week. Traffic jams. Circling city blocks looking for parking or spot-hunting in giant soul-less parking lots and so on and so forth.
The AAA says that it costs about $9000 per year just to operate/own a car in the United States. Young Americans don't want to be a slave to their cars, or the auto industry. They want effective, cheap transportation that's good for them, is low-impact and low-maintenance.
Many wild, young Americans are looking at the cargo bike as a viable car replacement and the new Urban Arrow Cargo e-bike is one the most advanced example of its kind on the market.
Imported direct from Amsterdam - the capital of bicycle transportation - the Urban Arrow is a joy to ride and to utilize.
Considering that a car costs $9000 per year just to operate, using the UA as a car replacement pays for itself in just 6 months.
Suburbanbikes / Motostrano is the California importer for these great bikes.
Our first deliveries have been well received.
The Urban Arrow cargo bike uses the famed BOSCH pedal assist mid-drive motor system to offer a smooth and powerful ride that takes the weight off starting the bike and climbing hills.
This is a cargo bike of the highest order, well thought out and engineered as a real transportation and carrying solution, not a novelty. This is bike you can safely carry 3 small children to school with on a daily basis in good or bad weather.
The Urban Arrow cargo bike takes a lot of the sting out of pushing a cargo bike around by pedal power. The electric assist makes it a little easier to get started and to climb hills. It also can extend the range of your cargo bike by getting you further, faster. In a place like San Francisco, for instance, you can easily get around the entire city with an Urban Arrow and never need a car.
Mom's really like the idea of an electric cargo bike. You get exercise and fresh air. You get a safe vehicle to transport kids and go to the store. You get money savings and you get to park just about anywhere. Which makes the Urban Arrow a solution for progressive moms who want to do things a different way than lining up at the pre-school in a minivan. The Urban Arrow makes getting out an adventure and an exercise in exercising, as it were.
The Urban Arrow cruises at speed around 16 MPH but we recommend keeping the speed down. Get there safely and calmly. As a bike, it's equipped with a front and rear light to keep you visible at night.
There's a sturdy center stand meant to keep the bike upright whenever parked.
The seat is a comfortable gel touring seat and it's a standard bike seat you can also swap it out with an even more comfortable. There are many accessories available for the bike.
The Urban Arrow is in high demand. Right now there is a lead time of 5-10 weeks to get an order shipped. To find out more, contact our sales people.
