New electric bike can haul 100 pounds of cargo

By Heather Kelly, CNN

There's only so much you can fit inside one of those cute woven baskets found on the common bicycle: a small bag of groceries, fresh-cut flowers and a baguette, maybe a puppy.

But the new 2X4 cargo bike from NTS Works is built to haul up to 100 pounds of goods and, with the help of its electrical-assist engine, go as fast as 20 miles an hour.

The bike, a cross between a bicycle, motorcycle and beast of burden, is the brainchild of California bike designer Neal Saiki. He hopes the $4,800 2X4 will catch on with regular people running errands, as well as companies that deliver packages, fruit boxes, pizzas and other goods in urban areas.

Enterprising riders around the world have used the humble bicycle to haul freight for more than 100 years. They creatively balance large loads or small families on two wheels, often modifying a bike's design to accommodate specific hefty cargo.

These "cargo" or "freight" bikes are still in use in many places where cars and gas remain too expensive, or where the roads are so small or congested that a bike is a more efficient way to get around. They're especially popular in Europe, where some manufacturers have added electrical engines to boost the bikes' hauling power and assist riders up hills.

Though these bikes get the job done and are popular with postal services and small businesses that rely on local deliveries, Saiki sees room for improvement.

"The cargo bikes on the market are just horrible to ride, with terrible handling," said Saiki. "I had to come up with a new way to steer a cargo bicycle."

NTS Works claim the bike's belt drive doesn’t need lubrication, reducing maintenance.

Saiki, a former aeronautical engineer, has been working with bikes for more than 20 years. In 2005, he started the electric motorcycle company Zero Motorcycles. For his newest startup, NTS Works, he decided to focus on improving traditional bicycle technology.

He spent the past three years designing the 67-pound aluminum electric cargo bike so that it rides like a regular bicycle. Using computer simulations, his team determined early on that the best place to put cargo is above the front wheel. Unfortunately, that makes handling tricky, so they designed the 2X4 so the rider steers the front wheel through the axle.

Though it's electric, the 2X4 bike is not for the lazy. There is no throttle. A sensor detects when you are pedaling, and only then will it kick in with one of three power levels, going up to 20 miles an hour - an impressive speed for cargo bikes, but not unheard of for traditional road bikes.

"It requires you to put some power into it and it's the perfect workout, but you're not exhausted," said Saiki. "I figure if you really don't want to pedal, you should just buy an electric motorcycle."

The biggest advantage of an electric-assist bicycle over a car or motorcycle is cost, says Saiki. At $4,800, the  2X4 is not cheap, but for $30 in electricity you can ride the bike up to 10,000 miles. A full charge will take the bike about 30 miles, so Saiki recommends plugging it in nightly. The battery is unique in that mechanics can go in and repair and refurbish the individual cells instead of having to replace it entirely.

There are other costs and labor savings for companies. A car, even a motorcycle or scooter, requires insurance, registration and drivers with licenses. Most people already know how to ride a bike, and the liability for a bicycle is much lower than fully motorized transportation.

"When you add up all of those costs compared to a gas vehicle, there definitely is a significant cost savings," said Saiki.

Saiki hopes to put 25% of his company's profits into bikes for charitable organizations and disaster-relief organizations, distributing cargo bikes to developing countries where they can have an impact on people's day-to-day lives.

NTS Works will launch a Kickstarter campaign for the bike in the coming weeks and Saiki hopes to begin selling it in the U.S. and Europe early next year.

    A cargo electric bike is great. At $4800, it's too expensive to be of use to most people. If you want something affordable, better start learning how to build it yourself with a $250 motor kit off ebay. Will still cost $1000 in the end. There IS room for something between a motorcycle and a 20lb bicycle. When's the last time you saw a motorcycle carrying more than a few panniers or grocery bag size storage? I've hauled 4×8 foot sheets of plywood with my ebike and trailer. Didn't need to spend $50 on renting a truck.

    oh yea? well my cargo bicycle can haul 1000 pounds, and whole sheets of plywood. It only costs $1300, is made in USA, tops out at 25mph on the level, and never needs recharging. If you don't believe that, take a ride on me.

    This looks like an excellent proof-of-concept. If they manage to cut the weight in half and cut the price to about a third, they might have a good product.

      Check out Eevcusa.com, prices are affordable and it is an excellent product. I live in Hawaii, gas is expensive, traffic is terrible, people care about our planet and it's possible to get a surf board attachment!

    An ugly looking overpriced bike isn't really news worthy,but at least it wasn't an article about the Kardashians.

    This guy needs to go to China to see how they do cargo bike there. I think there are probably more bikes in China than the rest of the world.. This has been done before many times. Adding the electric drive.. they do that also.. You guys need to get out of the country more!

      California 'bike designer' Neal Saiki can charge $4800 and make them in China for a couple hundred.
      Kind of like California 'car designer' Elon Musk making $100,000 cars.

    Just a bit over-engineered, eh? $30 for 10,000 miles? The bike won't last 10,000 miles but we get the idea that it's cheap to operate. Almost as cheap as a real bike. It weighs much too much for most applications and every bicyclist knows you don't need 67 lb. of bicycle to support a rider plus another 100 lb. On the other hand, with a full load at 20 mph perhaps you do need an over-engineered bike; or a 2003 Corolla (same purchase price). As a delivery vehicle this thing exposes the load to weather and theft. It looks like a solution seeking a problem.

    I'm really glad to see American companies getting into the electric bicycle business. The only thing is, they don't seem to be getting the idea that you can't charge an arm and a leg for something that is targeting a group of people that are trying to save money and resources. I know that they're aware of the Chinese and Indian producers. Why don't they take a look at that market and find out why it's so hugely successful? We are so proud (and have a right to be) but we should never be so proud that we don't look at this from many different angles. This is working in Asia. The people are buying these things up in the millions. Maybe it just boils down to the fact that Americans don't want to change anything, really. They just want to sucker the rest and maximize their profit before they admit that they were charging too much to begin with and file for bankruptcy.

      I was thinking the same thing while reading, thinking that thy could afford 25% of profits to give away if they are charging so much. Everyone is a sucker in the states (so they think!)

    100 lbs of cargo? That's barely enough for one American rider.

    • whoisit

      Yeah, I was thinking the same thing - I imagine the "100 lbs" depends on weight of the rider, especially since it also seems to place the cargo weight over the front wheel. So on the one hand if the rider is too heavy themselves then the electric motor may not be sufficient, but if the rider is too small it may not counter-balance the load weight and be unsafe. I'd like to understand a bit more about how big / small the rider can be versus cargo (and versus performance).

    Almost everyone in the big Chinese cities are riding electric bikes right now. I live in Shanghai and just purchased the biggest, nicest looking electric bike with upgraded battery for the equivalent of $550. Most Chinese city dwellers are riding $150 bikes with all kinds of cargo-carrying contraptions and batteries that can go all day.

      Sounds great, but most of the USA isn't like China. Unless, you live in a big urban city. Where I live, the road a block away is a 55 mile an hour speed limit, with only ditches on the side and 2 miles away is the interstate with the speed limit of 70 MPH. There's no place to cycle around, especially if it's under 45 MPH. It's also illegal. Much too slow. This isn't a typical Chinese city with millions of people living on top of each other. Besides, it rains almost every day!

    If you're trying to put 100 pounds on a two-wheel bicycle you had better hope you have good balance ... I'd rather have the Harley

      When I grew up in Shanghai, China, where bikes were as popular as cars in U.S., many bike commuters, myself included, were able to carry a person on bike's rear rack.

      It is not that much weight. Almost anyone doing touring will carry close enough to 100 pounds. I frequently go to the grocery store with my daughter in a carrier (combined weight 40 pounds) and will bring home 30 pounds of stuff on certain trips, 70 pounds might not be 100, but it is close. Point is that I do not really feel it, as long as the bike is built for it (like a touring bike or decent hybrid) it's not a big deal.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA! Guy makes unimpressive, totally non-innovative motorized bike, sets price tag at $5K, and CNN runs it as an article!

    Any $350 bike with a folding, removable $150 trailer can carry 100 pounds of cargo. It's not any kind of accomplishment.

    As for steering, who cares? Cargo bikes aren't "horrible." You just have to get used to them, which takes a couple of hours. And you can put a motor on one, if you want.

    This thing's just marketing. As is the "article."

      I probably overstated...a little...but I can't edit my comment. Good luck to the designer, and more bikes = good, but $4800 isn't exactly a populist price point.

      Plus when bikes start to pass $1,000 I feel like it leaves a lot of people scared of buying them. Not because they can not afford it, but because they are scared of the bicycle getting stolen. Even in a nice quiet town I think you would think twice about leaving a $5,000 bicycle outside while you go shopping, even if you are using a $100 lock... Even the best locks are easy to break.

    I believe there is a design flaw.
    Putting load in front makes it much more unstable than in back.
    I wonder how can a person working with bike for 20 year made such a design.

    For less then $4800 you can buy a small motorcycle that has an actual suspension so you don't kill your back, real lights brakes and turn signals, will haul more weight, and you can get insurance on. You'd have to be an idiot to buy this bike.

      What's with all the haters on this forum? The reasons for buying this bicycle are stated in the article. Essentially zero cost of ownership. There's even a lifetime warranty on the battery pack. It can be ridden and parked where cars and motorcycles can't go. I've traveled around the world and have seen a lot of cargo bikes in use- there is definitely a cargo bike market on a world scale and even in the US if we ever choose to be more sustainable. The price tag is high – but with economy of scale, it could probably be reduced to around $1500. (I know this because I built my own e-Bike once)

      Certainly true. But you'll be hard pressed to find an electric motorcycle in that category and price range.

      You must not have visited China before. If you have, you will realize that they are leap years ahead of the rest of the world in the use of electric vehicles, which includes electric bikes, trikes, and even mini-trucks that can carry more than the average American 1/2 ton gas guzzling pickup. And over there, electric vehicles aren't just for geeks and limousine liberals– they are actually used by the common person for everyday transportation.

    Though there are a bunch of existing products that do the same thing (several made in the USA) this one does make some interesting changed to the steering. Looks a bit like a bikefets but with a much shorter wheelbase. Given how large it is 100lbs seems like a low cargo capacity. I think they should include a back rack too, just incase you need a bit more cargo.

    Yeah, it's cool... but not that newsworthy. I'm glad NTS Works is getting some free advertising. But human / electric hybrids are not a new thing at all. Cargo bikes aren't either. Hey here's a w/ electric assist for less than $3k – like 40% savings:

    http://www.trekbikes.com/us/en/bikes/town/urban_utility/transport/transport_plus/#

    Yuba's elMundo BionX includes the BionX, which is also sold as a kit that can be retrofit to almost all bikes. Installed on the elMundo it's just under $3k. Their slightly smaller elBodaBoda is a couple hundred cheaper:

    This is so green I may have a greengasm. Unfortunately, unless I missed the part about 95% federal subsidies, the only way the poor will be able to participate in this particular greening of the planet will be to steal one of these $4,800 devices. On the plus side, they will be able to abscond with another 100 lbs. of boost simultaneously. Totally efficient and green as all-get-out. Love it!

        Not sure about this one with disc brakes though my Yuba plus 300lbs not under electric assist stops with rim brakes in 10' or less, and I can lock the wheels up if needed. I would imagine this is similar since mechanicalbrakes are virtually the same unless this one has a hydrolic brake system. Very safe.

    I ride a Mundo from Yuba Bikes in Ca. It hauls upto 450lbs of cargo, my uses are hauling my kids to and from school yes two of them and weekend light trail and recreational paths, I opted out but there was an electric assist option with 30mile range 2 years ago. I appreciate the attention given to alternative transportation, CNN please reference the options available, this $$$ option will deter not encourage riders. Especially when there are valid Ebikes out there and caro bikes for less than 50% of this one and they are available and proven already. I with the designer well and hope to see them at Interbike this month, but do not discount the others in the industry in order to fluff up a new manufacturer. The bicycle is a simple and efficient machine and many manufacturers are making great bikes for all purposes. Get Out and Ride!

      Seems the real innovation is in the front axle assemble, and steering mechanism. Shame there are no crops or tight images of it to differentiate the design in this article. Or even a concise description of the mechanism, flats are common and ripping apart a complicated front assembly might leave a delivery guy with cold pizzas.

      Our commute is a little over 7 miles each way with roughly 120lbs of kid and 165 daddy, plus water and book bags I would guess we come in at almost 300lbs of cargo on a 70lb bike. The only time it gets sketchy is on soft pack trails, or when I have an additional bike strapped on on return trips from longer weekend rides and extra kids on board.

    You are making a big mistake not having a throttle control. Pedlelecs are an odd idea that has been imposed on Europe by the strictly cycling organizations that lobbied the European Parliament that somehow throttle control was un-bicycle like and dangerous, the idea can stay there.

      The weight limit is recommended. I carry more than 100lbs on my commute using the 2×4. Your weight and the bike's weight do not factor into the cargo load limit.

        Why not use a regular bike (or ebike) and buy a walmart kiddie trailer for under $100? Total cost: under $300 (or $600 for ebike) It'll carry 100lb and have seats for kids.

        I can vouch for the efficiency of a cargo bike, having hauled trailers with kids the rolling and wind resistance as well as length of the bike and trailer make for one of the least efficient methods of hauling a family. That being said the use of a trail-a-bike setup is also horrible for handling. I tried most conventional methods of hauling 2 kids around town and the cargo bike is certainly the best I have tried thus far, and that is under just my own power no assist motor. This design is spot on when it comes to the weight over the wheels, and even eliminating the weight on the bars when steering since the related flop side to side is unsafe, but again the only deterrence to this articles purpose is the presentation of this bike exclusively at such a high price point, there are options available for less. Maybe not equal or maybe they are but there are options.

    I guess any article encouraging alternative transportation is a positive, but this article is extremely deficient when it comes to enlightening about cargo bikes. Cargo bikes that have carrying capacities in excess of 200-300 pounds have been around forever, and for for much less money than this NTS Works bike. $4800 is absurdly high for this bike that only holds 100 lbs. There are far more substantial bikes out there for half the price that have a greater hauling capacity: the Yuba Mundo (can carry 450 lbs.) or the Yuba Boda Boda, XtraCycle (the first legitimate American cargo bike, or just do a Google search for Holland or Dutch bikes and you'll see hundreds of variations of cargo bikes both from Europe and the States. Most all can have an e-assist motors added to them nowadays and many come with them.

    Electric bikes have been around in Europe for ages. Maybe not like the one above. When I lived in Germany and Belgium, they were all over the place. I don't think they did 20-30 miles an hour but they could hall light stuff and if the motor didn't work, you could always pedal!

    I'm a big fan of alternative transportation ideas. There's no need for one guy to drive around in a tank of a truck when he's running to the store for a few items. That said, I prefer the Jetson Bikes I just purchased for a third the cost. Mine go farther, look better, and have a removable Li-Ion battery. Great idea, just too pricey.

      The Jetson bike is a scam. It cannot be pedaled any distance and is merely an electric moped. The Jetson bike should not be mentioned in the same breath as a realy cargo bicycle.
