    If you guys had. 3.5 to 4k to spend on an ebike that rode well and could carry two kids (currently 3 and 5) what would you buy?

    Probably a Spicy Curry. Kids take longer to grow out of longtails than bakfiets, and I prefer the Curry to the ER.

    Avoid the GSD like the plague.

    My shop sold quite a few of them last year. They're stiffer than steel long-tails which I've been told helps a lot with the "sway" you can experience with kids on the back of something like an ER. Otherwise the two are comparable in terms of capacity and kid-cargo accessory options.

    The kickstand is utter shite though. If you can, invest in a Rolling Jackass for it.

    We sell the Abus one at my shop... I just don't get the appeal.

    In America anyway, almost no one hears a car alarm and thinks "OMG SOMEONE IS STEALING A CAR!" Instead, it's met with a vague resentment toward whoever owns it.

    Customers are also stunningly skilled at setting the bike alarm locks off in the store.

    I want the ClaSSic LookS.

    lugged SS/Fixed with big clearances isn't a classic look... Now 19c tubies. That's classic!
