It’s safe to say that cars are the go-to means of transport for Uber Eats drivers, but with gas prices skyrocketing, you might wonder if these employees will start losing money because they are spending it all on their job.
While the point is to find the perfect UberEats bike for your job or side gig, you should also consider budget, space, and how much you’ll use these bikes if you decide to purchase one.
Best Overall – 3SCORE Electric Fat Trike
The 3SCORE Electric Fat Trike storage makes it the best choice to deliver food for Uber Eats. On the pricier side, the 750W motor has seven different gears, perfect for uphill and downhill roads, and a max speed of 30mph, with up to 45+ miles in a charge. It’s durable to ride on back roads and last for several deliveries and does not get you there much later than you would have in a car.
There are three four-inch-wide wheels for balance and security of the food, a front basket for your things, and a back storage compartment for the food you’re delivering, so this bike will get you to your destination with zero space or comfortability issues.
With its PAS, once you reach level five, you don’t have to pedal as hard to maintain the same speed.
Containing a USB charger, drivers don’t have to be concerned whether their phone will die on delivery, and a screen display odometer with a clock will track how many hours you’ve spent making deliveries, so you don’t have to.
- 750W Geared Hub Motor and 48V Battery
- Big Storage Space
- USB Charger
- Parking Brakes
- 5 hours of charge time
Best Price: ECOTRIC Electric Bike
The 55-pound ECOTRIC Electric Bike is much cheaper with a 350W motor and a maximum speed of 21mph. It, too, has seven speed gears, but it reaches around 21-40 miles per battery charge, which is a decent amount of deliveries for drivers, but the removable battery allows for switch-outs, giving the drivers much more miles if need be.
The six to eight-hour charge time isn’t essential since it can be replaced with another fully charged battery while it charges itself.
With four working modes, all focused on different aspects of the ride, pedal-assist mode, fully electric mode, pedal mode, and booster mode, you have the option as a driver to choose what mode it is you need to reach your destination the most efficient way possible.
- Powerful Removable Battery
- 4 Working Modes
- Comfortable Cycling
- Lower speed of 21mph
- Less Storage
- One Color
Best Late Night Driver: Rad Runner 2
This 65-pound electric utility bike, the RadRunner 2, meets in the middle as far as price range.
Not only does it have a bright LED light to guide your way for late-night UberEats orders and an easy access control panel on the handlebars, but it also has an integrated brake light.
The RadRunner 2 is built to be accessorized. With options to add a basket in the front and an attachable bag on the back racks, storage for delivery is no concern.
The 750W motor captures 25-45+ miles per battery charge, and there are four levels of pedal assist for driving up and down hills. This bike has AC power outlets with water-resistant wiring, but no driver has to make their orders in the rain. The four-inch tires are exclusive to Rad Power Bikes and contain K-Shield puncture-resistant liner, so drivers won’t have to worry about a flat tire in the middle of the night.
- LED Light for Late Night Driving
- Brake Light
- Built to be Accessorized
- K-Shield Puncture-Resistant Liner
- Spend Extra for Accessories
Whether you’re interested in one of the bikes above or something different, it’s important to know which features to look for.
Something to consider while looking for your perfect bike to drive around food delivery for UberEats orders is how much you are willing to spend.
If you are planning on working for UberEats for a decent amount of time, or you plan on using the bike outside of your job for recreational activities, investing in an expensive model is worth it.
If you are only looking to buy a bike as a temporary way to save and make money, perhaps a cheaper option is best suited for you. Even the non-expensive bikes work just fine for the job, they just might take a bit longer to complete an order.
While all of these bicycles have space or the ability to make space for the food you’ll be delivering, consider how much of it you’ll need. If you deliver multiple orders at once, a bike with a larger compartment for more orders would make the most sense, but if you know you only do one drop-off at a time, a smaller basket would suffice.
Make sure if you are spending the money for a larger bike that isn’t foldable, you have the space at your home, apartment, or shed, to keep it safe when you aren’t using it. If it’s foldable it will be much easier to keep inside, but bikes like the 3SCORE Electric Fat Trike with three wheels are wide and might need bigger storage space.
While all of the bikes would make the perfect delivery bike, it’s clear that 3Score Electric Fat Trike is the best for exactly that. The RadRunner 2 is a close contender considering all of its advancements and attachable accessories, but the 3Score offers stability, comfort, and the spread for an accident-free, quick and easy food delivery.
