With an electric bike as useful as the GSD S10 - or any of the GSD variants for that matter - you will want to get comfortable as you'll be using it more than you first imagine. Thankfully, the S10 LX has a Cane Creek Thudbuster suspension seatpost to give your an extra cushioned ride as you zip around town on this incredibly fun urban vehicle.
Gutsy, Stable and Durable
We're not actually sure what GSD stands for, but gutsy, stable and durable are good words to describe the GSD S10 LX. The 'gutsy' Bosch Cargo Line motor delivers 85nm torque right when you need it - especially welcome if you take full advantage of its 200kg max gross vehicle weight capacity. The bike's weight is carried low in the frame on top of relatively wide tyres, so it always feels very stable; an effect that is enhanced by a suspension seatpost. The supporting components are super tough too: the Atlas lockstand (see below), rear rack, Shimano gears and Magura brakes are all designed for durability.
Fit two child seats (not included)
The Thule Yepp child seats can be fitted in a pair on the rear rack with no adaptor plates required. For slightly bigger children, the Clubhouse seat is available which will also fit two children (see pics below).
Summary: A true car-replacement electric bike that will have you and your passengers grinning ear to ear. Durable, practical and enormous fun.

About the Tern brand
Tern is a very modern brand which was born as an off-shoot of the Dahon bicycle brand which you may be familiar with. Tern has taken its inspiration from the Arctic Tern - a small bird which is capable of travelling extremely large distances. Its bikes have the same capability. They're compact bikes - and though they wouldn't be described as 'lightweight' - they do store away easily, pack into cars well and have enough power to go as far as any full size electric bike.
We like the way they are set up to be utility vehicles, capable of carrying large amounts of cargo or children on the back., The wheels are nice and wide for comfort and traction and yes, believe the hype, we have had customers who have bought Tern bikes and then have been able to sell their cars!
