Family bikes to and from Costco with $700 worth of groceries in tow


Seen here:
https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/2017/0 ... -bike.html

Includes:
Rayside contacted Ronald Onderwater, who has been making triple tandem bikes in Amsterdam for about a decade. Rayside asked him to modify the design, mainly adding an extension to the middle seat so his wife, Stephanie Xie, could ride there.
... and:
The base bike cost about $4,500, but Rayside said it replaces a family car, a 2000 Toyota which he was able to ditch in 2016.

“It costs dramatically less to operate,” he says of the bike. “It costs less to buy, less to park. Everything costs less.”

The Onderwater XL Triple Tandem arrived two years ago, but it required more tinkering for Rayside to achieve his goal.

The rise up and over the Gardiner Expressway on Royal York, insignificant to a single bike, was like a mountain for a cyclist moving about 275 kilograms. The bike itself, made of steel, Rayside says, is “extremely heavy.” He guesses it weighs around 50 kilograms.

“With two children, two adults plus groceries, any little bump is a hill,” he said.

So he worked with bike technicians in Vancouver, Oakville and at Toronto’s Biseagal to develop and install an electric assist on the bike. Rayside used the best parts he could get so that motor, equal to one horsepower, cost about $3,000. With taxes, upgrades on some accessories and a $500 trailer, it was a $10,000 investment in total.

"bike technicians in Vancouver"? Hmmm... Wonder who THAT might be...

Huh. ESB "No suitable matches were found." ... for eBikeaholic??? Hehe... turns out they have a web site ("The authority on electric bike accessories."):
https://www.ebikeaholic.com/

... but first spotted for their vids on YT. Including their latest Electric Bikes; Good for Fitness?


... with YT desc:
There are a lot of people new to electric bikes that are wondering whether or not they are good for fitness exercise. In this video we used a Wahoo tickr heart rate monitor (HRM) and the Strava app to analyze a 5 minute pedal assist (PAS) electric bicycle ride and compare it to the same ride without PAS. Ultimately we found that the Strava hrm and calorie results are similar and point out that the major difference between the two rides are the distance and speed. This means you can still get valuable exercise on an eBike while covering more ground and of course, having more fun!
Additional bike details: 700c tires @ 75 psi
