More Cargo Bike Porn

In honor of bike to work week another round of cargo bikes, this time with photos courtesy of comrade Colin Bogart, former board president of the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition. These bikes were part of this February’s North American Handmade Bicycle Show in Portland. Get our your wallet, because these wheels are spendy.

Here’s a very heavy looking bike for carrying your apples around with. It’s by Black Sheep Bikes of Fort Collins Colorado.

Frances Bike’s bakfiet. Looks to me like a giant colander with wheels.

A very beautiful, retro styled bike by Alternative Needs Transportation.

A bike from Ahearne Cycles.

Looks like the golfing crowd has a “plan b” just in case the shit comes down and there’s no way to charge the carts. Of course by that time we’ll have ripped up the courses to plant food and Tiger will use his swing to wield a scythe.

  1. Hey all, great blog. I came across it via Boing Boing and started browsing the archives. When I saw this post I couldn’t resist adding a link to my own cargo bike. Hope it’s not poor-form.

    It was built by a frame builder here in Portland. It didn’t make the show floor, I had been riding it for about a year prior, but it was in the show parking lot. ;-)

  2. Yep, that’s pretty much what it is. I ordered it before the Surly was announced. Briefly considered cancelling the order after Surly announced theirs (he hadn’t started on it yet), but between uncertain delivery and uninspiring looks I decided to stay with Plan A. And now I am so glad I did. It makes me happy everytime I look at it. I can’t help but gush whenever I think I’ve found a kindred spirit. :-)

    BTW, here’s a better link:
