Tern GSD R14 Electric Cargo Bike
Building on the ever so popular first version of the GSD wasn't going to be easy, but Tern went back to the drawing board and have come out with this, the generation two GSD - a bike that could, without being too dramatic, change the way you live and travel. GSD, stands for Get Stuff Done in case you didn't know!
What's so great about the new model? Firstly Tern has redesigned the bike's frame to make it more comfortable to ride. The updated frame geometry means that every GSD should be comfortable to ride for anyone ranging from 150cm to 195cm. The frame is also now capable of lugging 200kg of rider, passenger and luggage - that's a lot!
Secondly, Tern has teamed up with e-bike system experts Bosch to fit the new bike with the more powerful version of the Cargo Line motor - an update that will make riding when fully loaded or riding up hills easier.
Third, Tern has refined other on-bike features. Upfront there's a custom suspension fork to make riding rough city routes more comfortable. Out back, Tern has enclosed the bike's rear wheel to make it safer for passengers and there's also an uprated kickstand to make parking the bike safer than before.
With this being the top of the range model, Tern have splashed out on a Rohloff internal hub gear system. Known the world over for their reliability and long-lasting design, its far to say many happy, maintenance-free miles lie ahead. Same goes for the bike's Gates CDX belt drive, rather than a standard bike chain.
The list of other on bike accessories is quite something. Pannier rack, mudguards, lights, lock, bell, that kickstand and on this model the R14, the second battery! There's also a suspension seatpost to make every journey a buttery smooth experience.
