Cargo Bikes

Back in the day, cargo bikes were commonplace in Europe, whizzing about with artisans at the helm. A baker with a bikeload of baguettes or a butcher with a side of beef in his bin, were simply a part of the landscape.

Today their descendants are pedalling a cargo bike renaissance through the modern marketplace in a uniquely brand-able ways, joined by an increasing number of parents embracing cargo bikes as a fun and sustainable way to transport ankle-biters and groceries.

Cargo Trikes

Cargo Trikes

Cargo Trikes are incomparable in their practicality for carrying large loads. Although not built for speed or distance they excel in urban areas as vehicles for family transport or for businesses looking for a sensible transport or vending solution. Christiania Bikes led the revival of Cargo Trikes. In the 30 years since their inception in Denmarks free state of Christiania, their practical and versatile design has become the ubiquitous choice for families and businesses alike .

Long-John

Long-John

Long-John Cargo Bikes became popular in 1920's Copenhagen and were used primarily by tradesmen and grocers for carting their tools and wares. Long-John bikes are characterised by their large and low cargo tray in front of the rider and behind the small front wheel. Many of the original Long-Johns remained in use since those early days. As good condition Long Johns became scarce in the 1990's, modern designs began to appear such as the Bullitt and a revival occurred. Nowadays Long-Johns are just as likely to carry children as they are tools, groceries and courier packages.

Short-John

Short-Johns have as long a history as their bigger sibling the Long-John. Used as delivery bikes they ruled the streets in the 1920's and 1930's.  The modern versions are perfect for carrying your shopping home or urgent package deliveries around town. All short johns have a load carrying tray or box above a small front wheel. They ride very similarly to an ordinary bike.

Longtail Cargo Bike

Longtail Cargo Bike

Longtail cargo bikes are essentially a traditional triangle framed bicycle with an extended rack. The long rack can be configured to carry two children (or adults) as passengers. With the addition of large panniers they can also carry a whole lot of market vegetables or whatever else you like to cart about. Many people like the Longtail because of the familiar ride qualities to an ordinary bicycle while being strong enough to carry big loads.

Fast Cargo

Fast Cargo

Fast Cargo refers to cargo bikes that ride as fast without a load as an ordinary bike but have the capacity to carry large items when needed. Not all of us need to carry large objects or groceries with us every day. Sometimes its just nice to have the option when you need it without having the additional weight of a more traditional cargo bike. Fast Cargo is the style of bike used by messengers around the world for urgent point to point delivery of packages.
