I bought a Faraday

I bought a used 6 week old Faraday Porteur!
I'll find out soon but dying to see if anyone knows if the
first batch of bikes came standard with the front "cargo" rack.
The warranty is getting transferred so they asked me to fill out the
"rack survey form" for shipment of he rack. I guess
I'm getting the attachment but thought the rack mount was
welded to the frame and I didn't see a sign of that before I left
it at the e-bike shop for an alteration. Thanks for any input!

Oh thanks guys! So far, it is good, very pretty. Not much help up hills but nice for flat riding.
It is a very large bike in the sense that it's a size small (5'2''-5'6'') I'm 5'5'' and the balls of my
feet barely touch the ground but I can still ride it fine, just slightly awkward when getting on.
Just got it today so I'll post my comments about the faraday after I ride it more :)

It's a beautiful bike. Curious about the perception of lack of assist uphill and how it compares to mainstream ebike offerings. If you feel like it would be nice to see pictures too. I love belt drive bikes and the Faraday is one of the most stylish bikes with it. I would even consider it but for my use I am far too heavy and my commute is too long.

You go girl. Here's a video tour of Faraday, which shows how their new front rack attachment works:


Many happy miles on your new ride. Enjoy!

Very cool interview. You can feel the passion. Put a big smile on my face watching the bike take shape.
