This is my third year with my haul-a-day. I love this bike. My kids are now 5 & 7 years old and we've gone everywhere in NYC on this bike for 3 years. Love how relatively small and light the bike is for getting up and down stairs and into my basement bike room. Love how the bike handles with smaller wheels = lower center of gravity. I never feel like the bike is going to tip even with two kids. OK, except for when they are jumping on and off! But that's not the bike's fault. And even with two kids, the cargo capacity is amazing. I have the younger rider add-on with a back bar rest that i strap an Ortlieb panier onto for water-proof storage for backpacks, lunch, papers. In the haul-a-day bags I can stick the kids scooters, hockey sticks, beach toys, whatever. This bike takes a beating and my local bike shop always admire the craftmanship of this bike when they're making adjustments.
I have the 24 speed, not the e-assist. Trying to stay in shape. Hahah. Just ordered the safety flag. Considering the under rack bag too for extra storage.
My Haul-a-Day is primary transportation and it has been great for many years . It is hard to beat the load capacity of the Haul-a-Day. It regularly carries a full-sized Stratocaster electric guitar, several bags of groceries, and sometimes even groceries and my svelte sister-in-law up challenging hills! Having recently moved farther out of town, except for furniture, my Haul-a-Day even carried most of my belongings for the several weeks I took to relocate.
Hi, I've had my haul-a-day for around 2.5 years now so I guess this is a long term review. I equipped mine with 2 Yepp child seats. I'm very happy to say my kids and I had a whale of a time with this unit. I would like to suggest 2 tweaks to the design. These are pertaining to the rack. The 1st is to design the rack to fit Yepp child carrier without any adapter. This helps to lower a bit of weight but more importantly the height of the seat by around 3 inches which helps with the stability. The second is to have some more sturdy and robust protection when one stands the bike on the rack.
