Our Take

It's almost as though Tern, in developing the GSD, created a checklist of improvements over the current crop of cargo bikes, and then systematically went about making them a reality. Hence, the GSD.

Shorter in length and still able to carry a lot...check.

The GSD is the same length as a standard ebike, but can carry up to two passengers, 6 panniers, or a range of cargo.

Powerful motor with a week's worth of range...check.

The Bosch Performance Line motor is suitable to get you up the steepest hills, and the optional dual battery doubles your range to upwards of 100 miles per charge.

Ability to store inside for security...check.

The GSD can be compacted and stood upright on the rear rack, becoming a 6 foot tall tower of useful bicycle, conveniently parked out of the way in your home, garage, workplace or school.

Serious components for longevity, reliability & safety...check.

From motorbike style 4-piston brakes, to thru axle hubs, to super strong 20" wheels with custom oversized tires, to Shimano Deore shifters, this bike is designed to ride great and hold up.

Adjustable to fit riders of all sizes...check.

Come in and try this exciting new addition to our range of useful cargo and family bikes.
