Bunch of E-fun, practicality and a good video review of how this unique e-bike operates and carries a sizeable load! Check the pros and con's in the story.
And credit to Griffin Hales at Electric Bike Report for the summary:
The Original can lug a lot of cargo with ease. Whether you’re making grocery runs or taking your kids to the park, The Original is ready.
There’s a wide array of accessory offerings from Bunch that allow you to customize The Original to your lifestyle.
There is a fun factor when riding The Original. We turned a lot of heads when riding it around.
Bunch has created a well refined suburban cargo e-bike.
The Original is a great alternative to a car for any commute or errand below 10 miles.
Bunch’s Original comes with auto-lean technology that keeps the bike balanced even with lots of cargo.
Price is under $5k US.
The cable routing feels like it could be a little more tidy from the cockpit.
The cushioned seats are great for little riders. We’d hope those came standard with the bike even if it raises the price a bit, but for now you can add them on at checkout.
