  • i like the fact that they have a John Player Special bike.....so either think 197's F1 racing or some fat 1970's darts player!

  • ...and the creative one needed to be re-welded already.

    I've seen the way that bike gets ridden and I can't say I'm surprised!

  • mdizzle, the 8 Freights are designed by Mike Burrows. I've briefly (although not over a longer distance) ridden one owned by bikefix and quite liked it. He used to custom-make them. Don't know if he still does.

    He does - or at least he was went I went to see him a couple of weeks back. Might not be ideal for transporting kids around, but they do work well for lugging hefty amounts around.

    Nice sound system!

  • For cargo bikes, the netherlands is the place to go. They are everywhere and used for all manner of funky things. http://www.fietsfabriek.nl/ is the canonical source, they make some very nice, if expensive range of cargo bikes, trikes, and quads. They are built like the proverbial stone outbuilding, and will last forever if you look afterthem (and say, oil the chain once in it's life unlike the dutch).

    This said, they all seem to come with a 3speed hub gear, which with the weight of the bike, plus the fact that it has the aerodynamics of a brick means that they don't do much more than a brisk walk...

    There are other manufactures, I can post links if they are of use.

    Good luck bringing one back by train tho...

  • I rate the christiannas especially the smaller ones. The one I ride is massive, and fairly slow because of this.

    i may have seen you the other day i think it was yesterday, were you wearing all black riding your cargo bike?

  • Um, i'm the tall girl with the dark hair on the cargo bike, Mary is the short red head.

    That and I don't ride them anymore, I sell them. That and a load of other dutch and cruiser styles bikes.

  • oh, ha. it was a man i saw anyway

    recognition fail

    Saw the bike on the street, they have a website www.cargo-bike.info and think they are quite fleksible with discount :)

  • Philip, these are copies of the christianna, and their reputation is not good, so far. Could you update here if you have any problems with yours?

  • Saw this on bike snob...

    I love it, sadly I cannot justify buying a cargo bike.

  • Just to update everyone, the danish Bellabike is now available in the UK through Kids and Family Cycles, www.kidsandfamilycycles.co.uk. Intrigued by the back wheel steering? Come for a free test ride.

    I love mine and do the school run with 3 boys in it aged 7,4 and 2.

    Hope this is of interest.

    regards

    Carolyn

  • You don't live around Elephant & Castle/Borough do you? I regularly say Good Morning to a lady who has loads of kids in a cargo bike every morning near Great Dover St, along with two more kids on bikes, Epic!

  • Hi,

    I am not the lady in London with the Bellabike, I am based on the Dorset/Hampshire border. But glad to hear the family bikes are getting used in the capital.

    regards

  • I know a couple of people on here have 'cargo' bikes, i was wondering if they could point me in the direction of some good companies....i have the Christiana Bikes site, and ran a google check. The one i might be after i think i have seen being riden by a guy on here and it has the cargo area in the 'middle' if that makes sense?
    Thanks for any help you guys can give.....

  • it is incredible the amount of shit the can carry, and fucking fast

  • I worked in the unit next door to Larry vs Harry for 6 months. You should see their own blinged-up Bullits with carbon fibre everythings. Awesome. If I had parking for one, I'd be all over it.

  • If I have the money for one, I'm all over it too, I quite like the Bluebird model;

    one of the guys from cavendish has one of these...in red, all battered

  • They are pretty awesome. If I was going to work as a courier again, this is what I would want to ride (and by coincidence, my old company has one), but for doing all the day to day stuff, I am ALL about the Big Dummy.

    Eh?
    Please tell me you mean they deliver bikes by bike.

    I've done that a few times, my favorite being the Brompton I delivered to a businessman's hotel in my Christianna.

    Good Times.
