Many cargo bikes sit on the higher end of the size and weight spectrum, catering to those riders who wish to haul large loads across town. The Tern Short Haul bucks the trend. Compact and lightweight yet durable and practical, it is just as capable on the weekly grocery run as it is when dropping your kid off at school. With a 50kg-rated rear rack that can comfortably accomodate a variety of child seat configurations, a huge host of compatible accessories, and an ever-reliable Shimano drivetrain, this is a great urban cargo bike for those who value portability as much as practicality.
