This cargo bike is designed by Mike Burrows, famous in the world of bike designers for his very fast and Olympic gold winning bicycles in the velodrome.
The 8Freight has its load behind the driver and not in front, so driving feels like a normal bike and long items can be carried without getting in the way of the driver.
With its 20kg, not so much more than a regular bicycle, it is surprisingly lightweight. The weight is carried low, so the bicycle remains very stable.
The monoblade forks allow to replace a flat tyre without removing the wheel. Very useful as well is the bicycle stand which can be operated using a handlebar lever at the steering bar.
The 8Freight comes as standard with a fabric cargo bed, but can optionally be delivered with a wicker basket to carry the kids or a box.
We have a demo 8Freight at the shop to try it out!
