The Yuba Kombi is a Family Cargo Bike capable of the carrying three kids on the school run for less than a thousand pounds. Need we say more?
Oh, it’s also available in both yellow and blue and yes, it is compatable with Yuba’s extensive range of accessories so you can tweak it every whichway!
The Kona Rove comes with high praise! From flat out on the road, to gravel tracks and compliance with the Cycle to Work Scheme, it is right up there amongst our favourites!
It can tackle all combinations of round trips, floating over the most brutal of British potholes with panniers full of whatever you need to get… everywhere?
Populo S8 eScooter
Looking for a simple, lightweight solution for zipping around? The Aventon Group bring you their Populo S8 Series, alongside their single speed and fixie bikes.
The S8 includes a 250W motor and 24Kph top speed, with a 270Wh battery and a total weight of just 12Kg.
“We want to try to preserve this cleaner air, so today I’m also fast-tracking trials of eScooters. Bringing this programme (already underway) from next year, forward, to next month. And extending those trials [to four] from four local authorities, to every region, in the country, that wants them, in a bid to get eScooters‘ rental schemes up an running in cities, as fast as possible.”
Transport Secretary Grant Shapps, 09/05/20.
As recommended in the Telegraph on 22/05/20, Kona’s SUV has won countless awards over the years and offers a fabulous option for families – with the glossy slime colour scheme and Bosch’s top of the line CX motor and 500Wh battery combo!
Are you ready for Summer?
Cycle Satiator: Programmable Universal Battery Charger
Offering a fully customisable interface, Grin Technologies’ Cycle Satiator is the perfect blend of rapid charger, overnight charger and mobile multi-battery manager all rolled in to one. It can deliver a tidy 5A at 72V too!
Create up to 20 different profiles to suit your needs. Optimising your overnight charge cycle to 80% of capacity at less than the normal 2A can extend the lifespan of your eBike batteries significantly, keeping them working safely and reliably for years to come.
Arise Sur-Ron: a new breed of Motocross
Riding at over 45Mph offroad with litle more than the sound of the terrain and the wind to gauge your speed and traction levels, is both an exhilarating and multi-sensory experience. You won’t have much time to read the display when you unleash the full 6,000 Watts of peak power!
What makes the Sur-Ron LBX series particularly interesting, is that you can also ride them on the road: we offer a fully street-legal model with a standard British number plate. This is classified as ‘L1E’, exempt from both VED and London’s Congestion Charge (with a regular bike license). The new LBX RS Edition is also available for offroad, featuring RockShox Boxxer forks upfront.
6KU Fixie/Single Speed
Looking for a simple urban bike to cross the flatter parts of London each day? 6KU’s F/SS Series could provide you with independent transport for the less than 1/4 of the price of the annual Zone 1-2 Oystercard.
The 44:16 ‘flip-flop’ hub can be switched between single and fixed gear riding (by flipping around the rear wheel) and you can install alternative gear ratios with ease. Great colours too!
i300: Zapp Scooter
Accelerating beyond 30Mph in well under 2.5 seconds is just the first of the i300’s defining characteristics. It is also a very tidy commuter scooter, which just happens to put out a staggering 587Nm of torque: more than a top end Audi A6!
The i300 is eligible for the Plug-in Motorcycle Grant (PiMG), exempt from VED and you can eject each 5Kg/5cm wide battery pack to charge them indoors from a regular 3-pin socket (providing 0-100% in 4 hours). With ABS as standard and 4-piston floating calipers, it also has the safety features to assure handling is within your grasp.
Kona’s Remote Ctrl eMTB
This is the Remote Control we’ve all been waiting for: see how a battery and a few buttons can change your view of the world with the wind rushing through your hair.
It combines 30 years of Kona’s magic along with the best technology available, in one spanking new model designed expressly for having as much fun as can be. There really is nothing stopping you now, except for a full set of SRAM’s.
Those of us who have been riding eMTB’s for a while recognise the line Graham Agassiz is taking too: the fast one. The photo is from perhaps the most refreshing video to show what an electric bike is capable of too… it’s all about how much fun he’s having. Full-on riding, without compromise.
Introducing Yuba’s Supercargo Bosch
Taking the already extraordinary Supercargo to new heights was always going to be a tall order for Yuba, yet the inclusion of the top of the line Bosch Performance Line CX motor does just that. This is every bit as good as we hoped it could be.
It retains the format from the Supercargo Classic model, whilst reworking the undercarriage to strengthen it to support the increased capabilities of the electric drivetrain. With room for four from the get-go, it is great for both families and shifting gear around town.
What we particularly like is that it can be adapted to suit a variety of different needs as time goes on. This is down to the frame itself being designed to accommodate everything from kids to kegs, which means you can pop an adult with a picnic up front and then scoot about too.
The photo shows the Bamboo Box (base and surround). There is also an ‘Open Loader’ which is a durable nylon surround with lightweight aluminium rails. It even looks fast!
Kona Shield: Urban Classic
Looking for compact and sturdy bike to manage the school run, daily commute and share with another rider? The Shield is Kona’s Micro Cargo Bike, initially developed with the Californian Police and now available to Parents in the UK.
This is a real contender for the best ‘do it all’ hardtail bike for the UK too, as it can conquer pretty much all. It is also available on the Cycle to Work Scheme too.
Get Electrified: eBike Conversion Kit
Thinking about going electric and already have a great bike? One option is to upgrade the one you have. The advantages include the obvious: you already have a bike!
With 100Nm of torque and a 630Wh battery, the ETM’s specifications leave most of the electric bikes in production in 2019 a long way behind. More information is available here.
Babboe: Family Cargo Bikes with a twist
With over a decade supporting families from the Netherlands and beyond, Babboe’s new Carve series combine a tilting chassis with augmented cycling, to deliver a wholly capable package to suit all comers. They’re as easy as riding a bike, even with two kids, a dog and groceries on the way to/from work. Wonderful!
Aventon: Mataro Track in Midnight Blue
Looking for a track bike to get your heart pumping? The Mataro is set to get pulses racing… available in midnight blue and street-legal with brakes too.
eCargo Bike Grant Fund
The Department for Transport has made £2 million funding available for the acquisition of ecargo bikes, to support green last mile deliveries. This funding is available to limited companies, sole traders, partnerships, charities and not-for-profit organisations.

Yuba: Cargo Bikes With Gusto!
Cargo bikes require a magical blend of ability and fluidity, which can transform a utility vehicle into a lifestyle. Yuba’s 200kg approved weight limit takes on all comers, with or without the top of the line Bosch CX motor you can choose to go with it.
Four key models share the same values, with each one tailored to suit a slightly different riding style, with variations fine-tuned for all environments. At least three out of four will probably cater for everything you can think of. Have a look, they come highly recommended.
Kids, kegs and cargo on the front and/or the rear, up high, down low, long, short, there’s something for every rider between 145-200cm tall (4’7″-6’5″), including your family?
With our best electric vehicles fully charged and raring to go, it is really exciting to see that our fellow Londoners are as keen as we are to embrace our digital bikes as much as we do.
Our focus is on families who wish to commute by bicycle. Smart clothes and even smarter technology without a slither of lycra in sight.
Just like any regular commute and school run, without the faff of trying to park a ton of tin and rubber along the way.

Ducati Bicycles: which one is your n+1?
Ducati has long been synonymous with fun! Yes, the magic ingredient in all bikes is the sheer pleasure of riding one. With a motor, without a motor, it’s often the the very freedom of the open road/trail/both which we seek.
With a variety of motor and battery combinations, the throttle is your feet: the more effort you put in, the more you get out of it. It’s like riding a bike, because it is a bike and you are riding it (with improved acceleration and scope as standard).

CatEye SYNC & Kinect: smart lights for savvy commuters
Presents For Cyclists & FREE Delivery!
Few things divide opinion faster than bicycle safety gear. For many the rear light is the least important of bike lights, in part because it’s the one thing which doesn’t seem to contribute directly to your ride
Yet our lights are normally the first thing other road users will see. So what stops people investing in a decent set?
CatEye Volt 800: twice as bright as a 50W halogen spotlight
If the last time you bought a rear light was 2001, they’ve come a long way since then: with USB rechargeable Li-ion batteries and 180′ visibility, several are as bright as the lights on scooters
They make great gifts too! Especially for people who’d never buy them for themselves
Give the gift of light!
Hiplok Series: the last locks you’ll ever need to buy?
Locks are another of the things which most of us ignore… right up until someone nicks our pride and joy. If it’s happened to you, you’re probably still seething about it years later.
If someone in your family is about to get a new bicycle as a present, they may not have thought about how the lucky recipient will go about securing it.
The lighter the bike, the heavier the lock. Unofficially: 12kg combined
We recommend devoting at least 10% to cycle security. Hard to translate that in to a surprise gift or birthday/Christmas present, so maybe a caring sibling could gift it instead?
It’s tough to get excited about a good lock: hopefully, you’ll never need to know how good it is
