Tern GSD
$4,000.00 - $4,800.00
Enormously Useful. Surprisingly Small. The GSD is designed to carry two kids, a week’s worth of groceries, or 180 kg of cargo, but it’s only 180 cm long—the same length as a standard bike. With Tern’s best-in-class folding technology, it packs down small enough to fit in a VW Touran or an urban apartment. Plus, it adjusts to fit riders from 4'10" up to 6'6"—so mom, dad and the kids can all share it. A Utility Bike Designed to Fit Your Life. Despite everything it can haul, the GSD is actually the same length as a regular bike, so it fits anywhere a standard bike can. But there are lots of places a standard bike doesn’t fit. That’s why we designed it to pack down to 1/3rd its volume in only 10 seconds. That means you can store your utility bike in your urban apartment, fit it in the elevator, or stash it in a train for weekend getaways. Carries the Family With room for up to two Thule Yepp Maxi child seats, plus grocery space to spare, the GSD lets you ditch the minivan. The low step-thru frame makes getting on and off much safer, and with an extra-low center of gravity, the GSD is stable and steady. Carry More Despite its city-bike footprint, the GSD boasts cargo-bike capacity, with a maximum gross vehicle weight of 200 kg (440 lb). Build it up with Cargo Hold Panniers and the Shortbed and Transporteur racks, to carry industrial strength Eurocrates, a week of groceries or a family picnic plus the kitchen sink. Bosch Motor and Battery Riding with kids on the back, uphill? No problem. There’s a reason Bosch is the global leader in e-bike systems—and it’s not just their outstanding performance. We work with Bosch because they offer the best service network, remarkable testing, and next-level quality control. Cargo Hold Panniers Think of the Cargo Hold panniers as a trunk for your bike. Keep your lock, rain jacket, and tool kit inside so they’re always ready. And then load them up with a week’s worth of groceries, or a tent, balance bike, cooler and toys for a weekend trip to the park. Use the lid when it’s raining or roll it up and out of the way when you’ve got extra large stuff to carry. Yepp, It'll Fit Two Thule Yepp Maxi child seats are the best in the business. The GSD is designed to fit two, with plenty of foot clearance for the rider. No special adapters needed. Note: The GSD fits two Thule Yepp Maxi seats, or one Thule Yepp Nexxt Maxi seat. Elevator Friendly Cargo bikes are most useful in cities (high density of things to see, do and move), but they’re also harder to manage and store (small apartments and bike theft). Most people don’t have space for a cargo bike. We designed the GSD to fit small elevators, so you can keep it indoors. We even designed the rack to let the bike stand vertically, for compact and stable storage. All Day Battery The Tern GSD is one of the few bikes equipped with Bosch’s latest Dual-Battery technology. You can connect up to two batteries for a range of over 250km. Tour from dusk to dawn, or commute for weeks on a single charge. Friends Get Benefits The GSD brings new meaning to “riding with a friend.” Our suite of ‘Sidekick’ accessories, including a KLICKfix seat cushion, retractable foot pegs, and an underseat handle, let two adults ride together in comfort. With Bosch power and an ultra-low center of gravity, you might not even notice your passenger. See-and-Be-Seen Geometry The GSD features a relaxed geometry that puts the rider in an upright, comfortable position. Swept back handlebars and ergonomic grips take a lot of stress off the neck, shoulders, and wrists. You’re also able to see (and be seen) over the tops of most cars, which is a great benefit in traffic. With Bosch power, comfort and performance can coexist. Boosted Components We use burly and dependable, cutting edge mountain bike technology to make the GSD superlatively strong. Magura 4 piston disc brakes, custom 62 mm Schwalbe Super Moto-X tires, Boost thru-axle hubs, and custom 36 mm wide double-joined rims, provide the rock-solid foundation for a bike spec’d to carry 180 kg. Low and Steady The GSD is engineered from the ground up for maximum stability, loaded and unloaded. We designed it with a 125 cm wheelbase—25% longer than standard ebikes—for confident and balanced handling. Thanks to small wheels, a low frame, and centrally mounted motor, the bike boasts an extremely low center of gravity. Altogether, the ride is a revelation. Safety First (Second and Third) Cycling is safer when you move at the speed of city traffic. Fast acceleration is a given with a Bosch Performance motor combined with smaller wheels. We’ve developed custom, virtually flat-proof, Schwalbe tires to give sure-footed stability on even the nastiest roads. Add super-bright LED lights, reflective decals, and a see-and-be-seen riding position, and you have a bike optimized for safety. Stable Standing Parents know that loading kids on and off a bike is
Brompton H6L-12

2019 H6L -12 Various Colors Bike Type: Standard Frame Material: Steel Handlebar: H Type Gears: 6 Speed Gear Ratio: -12 speed std ratio Mudguards/Rack Version: L - inc. mudguards no rack Main Frame: Various Extremities Color: Various Saddle Height: Standard Lighting: Reflectors only Saddle Brompton: Wide Tyre Schwalbe Marathon Racer Front Luggage: Front Carrier Block Only Rear Luggage: None Transporting: None Saddle bag: None Toolkit: None --Modifications of rear rack, seatpost, and front dyno lighting system available. Please call Jeff Palter, Owner, 617-230-0131, for an immediate response regarding this bicycle. The Brompton is a bike which rides superbly, is safe, agile and fast, yet folds easily and quickly into a highly-compact and portable package. The result is a vehicle that increases your sense of freedom and independence. Finely-engineered and elegant, the Brompton has a full-sized frame, made mainly of steel for strength and stiffness. It is designed to be practical and light enough to be genuinely portable; actual weight depends on model and configuration, but ranges from 9 – 12½ kg (20 – 28lbs). Brompton weights are true weights; unlike most bike manufacturers, we include the weight of mudguards, pedals, etc. in our figures – if it’s on the bike, we weigh it. The combination of a rigid frame and accurate alignment makes for efficient transmission of your energy and a lively, first-rate ride; countless owners use them on long journeys and for touring and many prefer the ride of a Brompton to that of conventional bikes. The Fold of a Brompton Bicycle: A key feature of the Brompton is the compactness and practicality of its fold. With a little practice, this is achieved without any difficulty in 10 - 20 seconds. The dimensions of the folded bike are: 585mm high x 545mm long x 270mm wide (23" x 21.5" x 10.6"). When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package little larger than its wheels. The folded package may be picked up without any risk that the bike will unfold - reassuring when running for a train or handing it to a cloakroom attendant! There are no projections or loose parts with the folded package and, using the frame or saddle as a handle, it carries like a small suitcase, lightweight and easy to manage. The fold is designed to keep vulnerable parts, like lights and cable-runs, out of harm's way and, by folding them in, to keep the greasy chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. Small rollers allow the bike to be pushed into inaccessible corners. **Folding: Full instructions for folding and unfolding, with diagrams, are given in the Owner Manual but these are the basic steps: All Bromptons have rear suspension, which also allows instant "parking" of the bike in the "kickstand" position. Park the bike by swinging the rear wheel under the main frame - the Brompton will stand on its own, leaving both hands free Unclamp and fold back the front wheel - the right hand pedal should be moved out of the way if necessary - and hook onto the rear frame Unclamp and lower the handlebars and saddle, and stow the folding pedal; these items can be dealt with in any order after the second step **Unfolding: Raise and clamp the saddle and handlebar, and unfold the folding pedal; these items can be dealt with in any order, but they must be unfolded before moving on to step 2 Unfold and clamp front wheel; the bike is now parked in the "kickstand" position. Lift up the rear end of the bike - a little flick is usually the most effective method - to swing the rear wheel out; the bike is ready to ride The key to understanding the fold of the Brompton is the seat pillar: it is the seat pillar which locks the folded package together by projecting down from the main frame, so preventing the rear frame from rotating, which in turn prevents the front wheel from swinging free. If the seat pillar is visible below the main frame, do not try to park or unpark the Brompton, and do not try to hook or unhook the front wheel from the rear frame. Similarly, if the seat pillar is not fully down, the folded package may fall open when the bike is picked up.
