Wow, that’s a lot of pink carpet!  :-)

If you’d like to learn more about the Urban Arrow – target price and availability; further details on the motor, battery, transmission, and brakes; videos showing riders carrying kids and pedaling uphill with and without assistance check out my extended review at http://mycargobike.net/2010/10/13/third-generation-electric-cargo-bike

I compare this bike to electric-assisted cargo bikes from other companies, and note that it’s probably the best choice for carrying kids in relative safety and comfort.  It’s an exciting development in the cargo biking market for a number of reasons.

Did you ride it?

Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to ride it yet. My review is based on correspondence with the company and my observations of front loader bikes when I lived in Copenhagen. I make those caveats clear at the beginning of my review. What I like about this bike is that it was designed from the start with electric assistance in mind. All other electric cargo bikes on the market add an optional motor to an unpowered bike, and you have to make a few compromises to do that.

Right—looks good, likely very heavy, but just a bakfiets with soft lines. See [Bettie](/tag/bettie) and [the Onya](http://links.bikehugger.com/2010/10/green-overdrive-saul-griffiths-onya-cycles-video-cleantech-news.html)
