Revi Bikes (Civi Bikes) Runabout - 500W Step Through City Cruiser Electric Cargo Bike
The Revi Bikes (formerly Civi Bikes) Runabout is an affordable, small, feature-packed cargo bike. The Runabout features a 500W electric motor, a uniquely designed Step-Through frame, and comes with Fenders, a Front Basket, and a Rear Rack. The 14.5 Ah battery (696H) is advertised as delivering up to 45 miles of travel on a single charge, though, depending on riding conditions, we'd safely say to plan for around 30 or so miles per charge.
Designed for quick and light errands, the Runabout is perfect for a quick trip to the grocery store or farmers market, though it would not be the best bike for transporting large cargo loads.
There are several optional accessories available to help round out the cargo capabilities of this bike. The Front Basket and Rear Rack come standard on the Runabout, and the following additional accessories are available as add-ons:
- Rear Basket
- Bag for Rear Basket - Fits nicely inside the Rear Basket
- Pannier Bag - Fits on the Rear Rack. Cannot be used with Rear Basket.
The Runabout comes in two classic colors:
- Obsidian Black
- Pearl White
Recommended Rider Height: 5'0" - 6'2"
