Extremely clever in design and build. I have not seen a more useful and practical application with a bike and I have previously owned and ridden other ebikes and cargo bikes. I use it for commuting to work, daily outings with my toddler and when my wife wants to ride-along. The bike is made of very high quality and innovative components (heavy duty basket, full kickstand with chain guide, single key system, Schwable tires, Satori stem, larger capacity Shimano battery, etc.). I have been using this bike daily for 6 months with over 3K miles and still as excited and fun to ride as when it arrived at my door for assembly.– T.S. in Huntington Beach, CA
I was really amazed at how it helps when riding on an incline, and generally takes the edge off of biking altogether. The bike is well-constructed and comes with everything you need to get biking. A lot of bikes come with cheap “starter” parts that quickly need to be replaced, which is not the case with the CERO. The bike also comes with a built in rear wheel lock and an optional chain which plugs into the rear wheel lock – genius! I opted for the small front basket, the chain lock, and will be purchasing the rear child seat once my son is old enough to ride along. In the mean time, you can catch me riding around with my dogs in the front basket.It may sound hyperbolic, but this bike has really changed the way I look at Los Angeles. Suddenly my 30-45 minute, 3 mile commute from Santa Monica to Marina Del Rey became a 15-20 minute cruise. I use the bike a lot on weekends, too. I find myself zipping around town to run errands or meet up with friends. Your city becomes much more accessible when traffic doesn’t matter and you don’t need to search for parking.This is a great product created by great people. Thanks for showing me a new side of LA!– B.D. in Los Angeles, CA
We LOVE our CERO bikes! We live in Sequim, WA and ride the hilly Olympic Discovery Trail often. These bikes make the ride easy and enjoyable for us retired older women. Last week we took them on the ferry to Victoria Canada and rode the Lochside Trail up to Sydney and back. Our bikes easily carried our overnight gear as well as whatever we needed to enjoy the ride….with bike energy to spare. And the bikes fit perfectly in our 6′ truck bed.– R.S. in Sequim, WA
I bought a CERO straight from the company in Santa Monica. The people are super nice. They are a family owned business and that comes through in the interactions that I’ve had with them. They’re honest and forthright.
I’ve had a few other ebikes (Stromer, Elby, FOCUS) and the CERO is my favorite by far. It’s light and agile, but it also carries a ton of cargo. I opted to put the large basket on the front and I can use it to carry two bags of groceries home from the store.
My girlfriend and I have been toying with the idea of selling one of our cars and I think the CERO is the bike that is going to make it possible.
If you’re thinking about it, go for it. You’ll be stoked.– B.C. in Sausalito, CA
I used a CERO e-bike for a video shoot in Los Angeles. Using CERO Platform racks on the front and back and a handful of bungees, we secured the camera case and lenses case, as well as backup batteries, mics and more. All in all, about 50 lbs of equipment. The bike handled the weight no problem. It’s a sturdy cargo companion. And the pedal-assist made riding — even up one steep, 10% grade hill — a breeze. I loved the versatility of changing out the cargo components (for around town, I’d use a Big Basket, not the Platform), and I also loved the battery life. I’ve geeked on e-bikes for the past half-decade, and the battery power today is more than you’ll need for a day of riding or commuting. We rode it — with stop and starts — from sunrise to sunset and the battery ended the day with 60%+ life still left. The display is also convenient and visible, even in direct sunlight, and the controls are simple to use. The one thing I wish it had is a quick release seat post clamp, because we had riders of different sizes riding it throughout the day, and you have to adjust the current clamp with a bike tool. But, the current clamp is super secure, and it is a quick adjustment with a hex key. Overall, I had an awesome experience, and this is a super-sturdy, well-built bike. And it’s fun to ride!– M.A. in Santa Monica, CA
