Availability: In stock (2)

Enormously Useful Cargo Bicycle. Surprisingly Smaller.

"The HSD is mighty but mini: It's easy to handle, easy to share, extremely comfortable to ride, carries a whole lot of cargo—and all of this in a compact design that's shorter than a standard bicycle." (ternbicycles.com/us)

Well-said Tern! Cargo bikes do not need to be big or heavy. The Tern HSD, like its bigger cousin the GSD, redefines the cargo bike. In fact, we call them 'cargo-ready' bikes, because unlike their huge competitors by other manufacturers, these bikes are actually as small or smaller than a standard bicycle, hence welcome on busses, trains, and Lyft.

Watch this 3-1/2 minute video to see how the HSD can fit into your life.

All Tern bicycles must be picked up in the store; We cannot ship them. But we will build, check and road test for you!

The HSD is powered by Bosch, the gold standard in electric motorized bicycle propulsion. The low step-through frame, and the adaptive stem and seat post angles, serve to accommodate a wide range of riders, from soccer moms and dads to lanky pizza delivery people. The front shock softens the responsive ride, and the Schwalbe tires provide safe rolling. Add lighting systems, fenders, and a sophisticated cargo rack system, and you have a vehicle that can certainly replace a family car for around town chores.

I maintain a selection of HSD in my Santa Rosa shop. So take a look at the tern product overview, then schedule a bicycle consultation with me for a test ride in the shop soon!
