Are you in the market for a cool and reliable longtail bike with an electric motor that doesn't break the bank? Look no further than the Bicicapace JustLong Electric. This delightful electric longtail bicycle, priced at just €4,450, offers exceptional value and versatility.

Design and Build Quality

The Bicicapace JustLong stands out with its quirky charm. It is a bit of a classic beauty, with its 20-inch wheels and upright seating position give it a nostalgic feel reminiscent of a 1970s folding bike. Its solid steel frame is robust, weighing in at around 28 kilos, which speaks to its durability and strength.

One of the unique features of the Bicicapace JustLong is its extended luggage rack, which is 80cm long. This versatile cargo area can be personalised with various accessories, from optional bags and child seats to custom-made seat cushions. The extended rack makes this bike a fantastic choice for families, allowing you to carry multiple passengers or substantial loads with ease.

Performance and Handling

The Bicicapace JustLong falls into the category of cargo bikes, but unlike most Dutch or Danish models that transport kids in a front box, this bike places the cargo or passengers at the back. This design, paired with small wheels, makes the bike highly manoeuvrable while still maintaining a stable ride. Whether you are navigating city streets or tackling tighter turns, the JustLong handles beautifully.

For those concerned about the effort required to pedal a fully loaded bike, the electric motor is a game-changer. It significantly eases the strain, especially during commutes or uphill rides. The bike comes with a Shimano Steps mid-engine, providing reliable and smooth electric assistance that makes longer journeys and heavier loads manageable.

Practicality and Versatility

The Bicicapace JustLong is more than just a mode of transport; it's a practical alternative to a car for many urban families. The bike can carry a total load of up to 190 kilos, making it perfect for transporting groceries, kids, or even bulky items. The 80-liter cargo area at the front, combined with the generous rear rack, offers ample storage space.

Riders and passengers alike will appreciate the thoughtful design elements, such as foldable footrests for easy mounting and dismounting and a sturdy kickstand for stable parking.
