I think we've eliminated the R&M Packster (the sus fork makes me very suspicious)
We've tried a Babboe City which was quite good but the steering was super twitchy and the electric assist was a bit all or nothing - not quite enough to put us off but may prefer others enough to justify the £££
Going to try an Urban Arrow and Bakiets prob next week and we're trying to find a good day for a trip over the Glasgow to try an eBullitt too.
Any opinions about roller brakes vs discs?
The Shimano e6100 is seamless feeling, with 4 levels of torque based assistance. The torque sensing smoothly matches the motor output to the rider input, and has a very natural feel. The 4 levels set the upper limit of assistance: 0%, 33%, 66%, 100% (I guess) of the available power from the motor. The assistance ramps up very smoothly as your input increases.
Disk brakes are the way to go. I can't imagine why anyone would choose something else. I don't know what's finicky about them. They've been around forever. Just be sure you change the pads because they'll wear out quicker on a cargo bike than usual. Changing pads takes 15 minutes.
