    Nimble Is A Cargo-Hauling Kick Scooter Capable Of Carrying 300 Pound Loads

    Chances are, you’d scoff at the prospect of getting a cargo kick scooter when you can get a cargo bike – the latter just seems a lot easier to use when ferrying heavy goods.

    Metrofiets Cargo Bikes Combine Classic Style With Serious Utility

    Cargo bikes come in all shapes and sizes.  Few of them, however, combine personality and utility as well as a Metrofiets Cargo Bike, which pairs classic styling with heavy-duty carrying capacity. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because they’ve been around since 2007.  In fact, we featured one of their custom builds, the Pub Bike, which features a literal mini-bar atop one of their cargo rides. Metrofiets hand-manufactures the front-loading cargo bikes, which they call “Long Johns,” modeled off Dutch [...]

    Urban Arrow’s Electric Cargo Bike Has Modular Frame, Can Carry 400-Lbs Of Load

Manufactured in the Netherlands, the vehicle pairs the cargo bicycle’s utility with the low-expense motorized assistance of an electric two-wheeler.  It’s the company’s first electric transport [...]
