Blix Packa Review – $1.6k Affordable Long Range Electric Cargo Bike

Blix Packa Review – $1.6k Affordable Long Range Electric Cargo Bike The Blix Packa is a family-friendly midtail electric cargo bike with a broad range of custom rack and bag accessories to handle work gear, additional passengers (infants, toddlers, or even adults), 400lb maximum weight capacity. Available in two beautiful colors, glossy blue or white, premium integrated lights with multi-LED brake-activated rear light, large stable tires with reflective sidewalls and puncture protection. Unique 24-inch wheel size lowers frame height and makes the bike easier to approach, load, and stand over, mid-step frame is approachable but not as stiff as a diamond so there is some frame flex and possibility of speed wobble. Optional second battery pack extends range, pedal assist with throttle mode gives you multiple ways to ride and help getting started from standstill, adjustable angle stem, steel fork, swept back handlebar, and padded saddle all add comfort, Mechanical disc brakes may require more hand strength but help to keep the price lower and may be easier to adjust, integrated USB charging port on display for accessories.

  1. If you are riding in the city, this bike is awesome🚲>ㅎ110 The Battery kicks in right away when you start to pedal or you can use the throttle. Top speed was around 18 mph while pedaling with battery activated. The bike will help you up small hills with minimal effort. Down hill you don’t need the battery, but don’t burn out your brakes. The bike is a little bumpy with no suspension to absorb the shocks of bumps in the road. The bike wasn’t too bad to assembly but can see why a technician is handy to help. They battery is strong and lasts for about 15 miles. A cool option would be if while manually pedaling the battery was charging too. The seat and handle bars are too close together for tall people. Overall, this is a fun bike.

    This looks a lot like my Radwagon.

  3. It’s a shame no re-gen not included

  4. Love the info and may I say one great job you do on your channel…..your testing on this one ….. Wobble….. if I had a child on the back I would not do … no handed … I’m so for what you say for us out there on our bikes and we are all sizes ( believe) lol and the purchase that most of us don’t know what to look for so a big THANK YOU MAN …… allan G

  5. Wow ! ❤ it

  6. Those front cables look terrible. There must be a cleaner way to route them.

  7. These seem to run about 20% below list price, so right now at least they’re about $1600.

  8. nice! what do you know about laws on liability insurance and drivers license and others? how does a 20mph bike blend in with city traffic?

  9. Incredible review and overview. I’m so excited for this bike.

    About storing lithium batteries if you know you won’t use the bike for a long period, it’s better to store the batteries at 40%. If stored at 100%, the cells degrade and the capacity decreases over time.

  10. Hello! Its been almost a year after this review. Anyone have any idea how this bike holds up over time? Maybe what that experience was vs. a RadWagon? Really torn between the two.

  11. Dont understand who like ride a bike without front suspension fork. Thats terrible..

    Nice presentation, product and desing 👍
    It’s a pity, that it does not have energy regeneration when braking (like its competitior brand Rad wagon). I have it in a Kalkhoff with Xion engine, and I can say, Yes, brakes better (saving brake pads), and some energy generates. Also, gives good feelings…

  13. 48 teeth in the front with 11 to 32 teeth on the back and 24 inch wheels gives you a gearing range from 36 to 105 inches. Assuming a cadence of 90 RPM, that’s a speed range of 9.6 to 28 MPH. I don’t see myself wanting to go 28 MPH on a cargo bike. I might want to replace that front chainring with a 42. That would lower the gearing range from 32 to 92 inches.

    best bike you have reviewed for a while sensible price a looks well made ,well done

  15. really curious if this will have the "speed increase hack" like the RAD bikes? can you confirm or deny? 🙂

    Yay Cort ! Glad to see your still the man for E-bikes etc. – hoping you will review the new wave of E-scooters like Rev and Mercane widewheel – i feel an e-mobility concepts hasn’t truly been reviewed until it gets a review here –

  17. Love cargo bikes and love my cargo bike. If you can only have one bike I would make it a cargo bike.

  18. It’s a bit like our old Juiced ODK – U500

  19. Like it. Good review.

  20. isn’t that based on the radwagon ? well its still a nice proposition

  21. That title made me feel poor….since when is 2 grand for a bike affordable

  22. Does it come in another color?

  23. I think it is time for you to do a couple long format, top fives. Like: Top 5 budget e-bikes ; Top 5 e-cargo bikes/kid carriers; Top 5 e-mountain bikes; plus many others. Surely you have enough data and experience for a short series.

  24. I don’t like reviews for something that is not really for sale yet. No way to get that 38 minutes back. The reviews for bikes you can buy are great.

  25. Is the bike dynamically stable hands-free? Do you have a friend that is a 300lb rider that can answer that question?

  26. Front shocks would be really great.

  27. Is “deflopulator” a real word?

  28. What’s better the rad cargo bike or this bike???

  29. I want something for my dogs to travel with me.

  30. Can always buy chain slap guard at any bike shop. Or you can tape it for protection.

  31. Very detailed review! The frame design is nice, and I hope they made some seats to take advantage of those running boards. I have no idea why they would tie the throttle to the assist level. If I’m crossing an intersection and a left – turner suddenly goes without looking, I want that power to be there.

  32. This is the most informative, in-depth review of any product that Ive ever seen. Very well done! Im buying 2!

  33. Hi. Love your reviews. I’m wondering if there are any bikes like this that offer a additional seat cushion to allow another rider ( 10 yr old and up)? Thanks!
    Still looking at the scrambler style bikes but mainly because they seem to be the only bike that can have two riders. I wouldnt always use it that way, just want my daughter to ride with me at times.

  34. What is the BEST Electric Cargo Bike (2 person) for under $2,500 that you have tested?

  35. There is an even cheaper way to do this. I you buy 2 razor scooters and put the motors and internals on both wheels you done stupid because it isnt powerful enough

  36. having reviewed both(watched both of your videos btw), would you be able to make a recommendation between the Packa and RadWagon? if so, reasons why?

    Thanks for doing these videos. They are very helpful!

    Tern GSD copy…

  38. I am just curious how the Blix cargo bike compare with the Rad Wagon 4 cargo?

  39. I so wished Blix had a shipping warehouse located in Canada as well. Not only to save on shipping cost (hopefully) but Customs Duty Brokerage whatever you want to call it will absolute make it not worth it for us Canadians. Too bad as I wanted a wagon style bike with smaller wheels unlike RadWagon but greatly lower cost than Tern.

  40. Two batteries and it struggled to climb a moderate hill. Not cool.

  41. Bought my Radwagon in 2015. You can see this company is competing with RPBikes, and their product looks great. I have not seen whats been done since 2015 with the Radwagon. You always conduct such a pro review. Thanks!!

  42. i never understood why you don’t attach a GoPro-like camera to your helmet, instead of holding with your hand like that

  43. I am trying to decide between the Radwagon 4 and the Blix Packa. The bikes look virtually identical but I note that the Blix website doesnt have many accessories. Any thoughts?

  44. is only a copy of …

  45. Note: should have tried the 2nd battery removal for clearance.

  46. Wow, two batteries and the bike is only $1.6K. Why is the Vika+ so expensive?

  47. Is there a reason why a cargo e-bike can’t include ‘comfort’ bike features like shock-absorbing front fork and seat stem suspension, along with more upright handlebars and a wide, plush saddle? What about suspension in the rear for bikes designed to haul 250 to 400 pounds?

  48. I am sharing a price point for ripening decades new "D" battery of this millenia’s onset.

    Warranties are usually just noise but for most people help hedge risk ALSO. Mass production and standardisation continue to be denied human scale rational mobility.

    The suburb was born by Evil aka Cars.

    Servicing it’s needs has killed most of the biomass but ignoring opportunity in THE details must be mistake to assume we will persist in.

    So the existence of a retailer that contracts to limit profit it takes and seek to eliminate middlemen can actually save world by giving consumer the not just mythical King power largely of past when local wood and animals plants etc.

    Mowing lawn cordlessly, more than blowing snow, demands cost effective power. A voltage battle catering to idiocy has occurred with near tripple digit packs and superb grid girth connectivity at shockingly low prices are rule.



    THEY will do wrong now and get a Kirkland branded model so they can take profit covertly as oem not just dealer.

    Till than print connector to this vehicle for those suburban gems. Walmart charges a hundred bucks for a kwh of lead and another fifty for 300 watt charge kicking Cosco hard to point of mockery on it’s nonsense at 8 not 80 etc volts.

    They suppress prices in there ap preventing low cost external brands saturating market. Close stores early.

    Bought far too few!

    The mower is the Trojan we must invite to end the gouging night imposed by scuba light maker’s till Specialised gouging fools today.

    Paying dollars a watthour is liking sticking your tongue in hot tailpipe of Cuban Diesel junker. It won’t end car access to urban areas ie will doom planet.

  49. We desparetely need a comfy pad for our disabled adult son to ride behind his dad. He’s light at 130 pounds and dad is 240 pounds. Is there a pad for that long blue back area.

  50. Good one. Thanks. You made me want one…..
