7 years strong

I purchased my Haul-a-Day nearly 7 years ago when my kids were 1 and 4 to replace an unwieldy child seat and trailer combo. I loved the bike then and - to my surprise - long after the kids began riding on their own, it is still the bike I want. It started out as the daily family vehicle. Once the kids started to ride their own bikes, it became the Plan B option. If they got tired, I'd strap their bikes to the HaD and they'd climb in. (That was easy with one kids bike. A little more awkward with two.) Even now the kids will sometimes get a ride if we'll be on busy roads or if it is - for whatever reason - more convenient. But for the most part, it is now just my daily bike for commuting and shopping. So I thought maybe it is time for me to finally graduate from the HaD back to a "normal" bike. I shopped around, tried some out, and ... I'm sticking with my Haul-a-Day. For city commuting, the difference in riding experience just isn't that big a deal. But the convenience of being able to get groceries without planning ahead and connecting a trailer is huge. Every now and then I curse a little when I try to maneuver it onto public transit, but that's a small gripe. And at least that is possible with the HaD when it isn't with other larger cargo bikes. I'm a huge fan and it continues to be useful as my family needs evolve.

Love my Haul-a-Day

Words cannot describe how much I love my Haul-a-Day. I just passed 500 miles on this bike and everyone of them has been so much fun. I have the e-assist, which allowed me to bike up big hills while pregnant, with my 3yo on back, groceries in the side-bags, and her little bike strapped on to the cargo rack. When I don't need it, I just turn the assist off. I've even used this bike to cart around large objects that wouldn't fit in my car. Totally love this bike!

My mini van

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.
