The Midtail M880 is my favorite E-bike! The large, puncture resistant tires provide a super smooth and stable ride as I navigate the busy bike path, it even lets me ride off road through grass and dirt shortcuts like they’re more asphault. The front basket gives me a great place to put my stuff while I ride, and I have no problem getting this bike locked with a U lock when I make quick stops. The shorter length of the Midtail compared to the Longtail also makes for a more agile and fun ride, but without sacrificing comfort.

What Our Previous Happy Customers Say
The Longtail L885 is the perfect bike for my family. We have 2 of these cargo bikes and use them to ferry our kids around constantly; school, sports, picnics, beach trips, grocery shopping, and so much more! With one bike we can take both kids and their backpack thanks to the 150lbs cargo weight capacity, and if we take the second bike we can fit larger cargo we need like coolers, grocery bags, etc. These bikes are so good we actually sold our car because we weren’t using it anymore and the gas savings were a nice bonus. One of the features unique to the Longtails that we love is the ability to install a second full size battery, meaning we can use the bike’s full power all day without worrying about the battery life. I would definitely recommend these bikes to families like mine, or anyone really!
Really enjoyed the top notch service that Mark provided. He is simply a kind soul and knowledgeable about everything bike related. We rented bikes for a week and he went the distance to make sure we had everything (brand new fitted bikes, extra tubes, tools, pump, etc.) we need to make our trip fun and memorable. Would highly recommend 3rd coast! They are the best in town!!!!
One of the best bike-renting experiences I have had. A friend and I needed to rent bikes for a few days for a trip from Chicago to Milwaukee and beyond. We found 3rd Coast which had the perfect solution: excellent rental rates, excellent bicycles (brand new – we watched him assemble them), extremely friendly personal service from a very knowledgable bike-guy!
