Hi Guys,
Looks like some people have gotten there hands on the Evo Cross and Evo Race. I am trying to decided between them. I was originally leaning towards the Cross since I would like to pull a kid trailer at times. But the main purpose would be for exercise. I would be riding it on a bike trail 95% of the time. Any insights would be great.

Can the Evo Race pull a kid trailer we have a
InStep Quick N EZ Double Bicycle Trailer

I know I saw someone had hooked a kid trailer up to the cross.

Thanks
Mike Mason

I have Evo Jet. You probably know that that is a step through version of the Cross. I can get a good workout if I choose on the spike by using a lower total assist mode or by increasing my cadence. I think you will get a good workout with the Cross. I have not ridden the Race.

Thanks Jonah! Good to know. I am thinking I will go with Cross seems like I can get a broader use out of it. I am going to test ride them this weekend.

Mike, I like the Jet a lot so I think you may enjoy the Cross. It is peppy and well balanced. I put a Body Float suspension seat post on my bike, which may the bike more comfortable and gave it a more responsive feel. The bike is pretty stiff so the suspension helps. I hope you love the bike!
