We moved to the R&M Load 75 for a few reasons:
- It is power-assisted – this was the main reason as I use it to commute / carry my 10yr old 10km to school.
- It has dual suspension – a must for the comfort of a larger child / load.
- Ans it’s pretty much the coolest cargo bike out there right now – clearly very important!
So how has it been? Well, for someone as bike obsessed as me, to say it is my favourite bike is saying something! Like all cargo bikes, it turns heads. But more than that, R&M have refined this thing VERY well. It is like riding a Rolls Royce. Everything works and has been well-thought out. The power-assist is cargo-specific, the Enviolo hub is excellent, and compliments the drive train perfectly. I am a huge fan of the no-maintenance aspect of the gates belt drive and coupling this with full suspension is a dream. I would highly recommend the locking canopy and the disc brakes are as reliable as they should be. It all just works.
So, as a cargo-bike convert I can firmly recommend the Load 75.
Oh, and my sons (and the dog) still love riding in it. I can actually push them up hills now, thanks to the power assist.
If you’re pre-contemplation, I would highly recommend chatting to the team at Dutch Cargo Bikes. It’s the best transport decision our family has ever made. Safe riding everyone and see you out there!
