"This latest version of the original Boost, which made its debut in 2016 and impressed us with its immense utility and bold design, improves on that model without changing ride quality. It goes faster, too—the Bosch Performance Speed Cargo motor gets you up to 28 mph in turbo mode. You can haul up to 130 pounds on the rear rack and 45 on the front, and the Boost is compatible with a ton of useful accessories, including a variety of front trays, Yepp baby seats (for two), and different rail systems for your little ones to hold onto. A Bosch PowerPack 500Wh battery sits cleanly on the frame and will provide up to about 75 miles of riding—a range you can double with a second battery. The whole package rolls on 2.6-inch tires wrapped around 24-inch wheels." - Bicycling.com
I’m very pleased with the bike overall. The components are great and not some proprietary jazz that you can’t work on. It’s well designed for cargo. The shorter footprint is easier to maneuver off-bike, and parking at a diagonal bank of staples doesn’t leave the tail hanging out into the lane.
The motor is quiet and responsive. I like being able to adjust on the fly the amount of assist it will give. It charges fast and I get more miles out of it than listed.
A couple of small issues. The saddle is terrible and you will want to replace it. And you won’t miss the incorporated handle because you will likely move the rear around by lifting on the rack. The handlebars don’t have a cross bar so you will need to come up with some clever way of attaching any accessories like a phone mount, bell, bag or additional lights. The cargo rack is beefy aluminum so the small rod that you would normally use to mount panniers is located too close under it so mounting and removing bags is a two handed operation. It’s worth noting that the dual kickstand is not a standard feature. Seems to me that should come with all cargo bikes. As well as a steering stabilizer.
It’s totally worth the money even though I will be making some additional purchases to dial in the fit and usefulness.
