Bike Friday Haul-a-Day


This is the Haul-a-Day from Bike Friday, built with chromoly steel in Eugene, OR and crafted into an electric assist bike here in Seattle. The bike itself is very innovative – it’s lightweight, has a low step-over height, and keeps the cargo weight low for a balanced and easy-to-handle ride. But twin side bags, a rear rack capable of carrying 2 kids or one adult passenger, a stable double kickstand, strong frame material and design, and powerful Avid BB7 disc brakes make this a serious cargo bike.

The bike is paired with a high-quality electric assist customized to your needs. The basic build includes a front hub motor that gives a substantial boost and a 30+ mile range; additional upgrades are listed below. All electric assist systems use the highest quality ebike batteries available: the lockable Samsung frame battery, at either 440 or 600 watt-hours of capacity. This battery will last at least 2, and up to 5 years when properly cared for.

Price for front hub motor build: $2,395 (+9.5% Seattle sales tax)

Bike upgrades include:

  • Frame-mounted Front Basket ($120)
  • Whoopee-Deux Child Rail ($120)
  • Footrest Rails ($50)

Electric assist upgrades include:

  • Rear hub motor w/ twice the power ($100)
  • 600 watt-hour battery, 40+ mile range ($100)
  • Cycle Analyst V3 ebike computer ($200)

Madsen kg271

The Madsen is a phenomenal cargo bike – it has a 400+ lb weight capacity, a big bucket with bench seats and seat belts for up to 4 child passengers or 1-2 adult passengers, a kickstand with a nice wide stance, and a well-designed frame that fits folks 5′ to 6’6″ and gives the bike a smooth, stable ride. Read more about the bike at Madsen’s website.

I’ve now built up and electrified a few Madsen bucket bikes, including the now-famous “Pride” bike that you can check out here.

All of the electric assist systems that I offer – the front, mid, and rear drive systems – complement this bike well. And I’ll discount the electric assist system 10% if you purchase both through me.

As with all of my complete bikes, electric-assist installations, and XtraCycle conversions, I include a 3-month mobile service period with this bike. That means that I’ll come to you to fix the bike if anything goes wrong with it (mobile service limited to Seattle residents. Folks living outside the city’s limits will need to bring the bike to my workshop for service).

Price for a 2015 Madsen kg271: $1,875

Electric assist options fit for a bike of this size begin at $750!
