Cargo bike customisation

The Cargo Cycles Cargo Bike comes standard with a flip-down bench seat with two harnesses, making it ideal for carrying up to two young children, a trolley-load of groceries, or any variation or combination you need.With a bit of creativity, the cargo bike is a platform for almost limitless adaptation and invention.The standard cargo box is made of plywood, so can be easily drilled to attach mounting points for anything you might want to carry in it.Without the cargo box, you have a blank canvas for innovation, limited only by your ingenuity.Some ideas are below. Cargo bike owners are invited to submit their own customisation ideas and photos for inclusion here.Cargo Cycles takes no responsibility for any loss or injury caused due to modified cargo bikes, whether or not the modifications are copied or inspired by anything on this page. By publishing here we are not condoning anything nor even suggesting that it is a good idea. Innovate at your own risk, and if in doubt, leave it alone.

  • Customisation - Chalkboard bike

    Modification by Cory, written by Tim

    Cory painted his flat-bed modification...

    ...with something a little bit different...

    A chalkboard for his daughter to draw on!

    Also perfect for sending messages to the public.

  • Customisation - No-box options?

    The cargo box mounts onto the cross-bars on the cargo bike's frame with four bolts.

    With the box removed, there's a heap of space and a solid four bolt mounting for anything else you might want to build on to a bike.

    Vending stall? Esky and picnic table? Display stand? Drop-side alloy ute tray? Tool box?

    We'd love to see what you can come up with!

  • Customisation - Car booster seat

    Designed and installed by Dallas, written up by Tim

    Xander needed a bit more support than the standard bench seat, and a few more straps to hold him in tight, so now rides his cargo bike in a car booster seat.

    Attachment details are not known, but appear to include a child restraint anchor through the rear panel of the cargo box.

  • Customisation - Installing a car seat

    by Tim

    This idea is the reason we bought our first cargo bike, leading us to go into business as Cargo Cycles. Small children (or in our case, a disabled child) may not be strong enough to sit on the cargo bike's standard bench seat. A car seat can provide much more support, and has a secure harness.

    Attachment methods will vary depending on the design of your car seat. The type of car seat you use will depend on the size of your child, and what you have available.

    My first car seat installation was rear-facing, using the seat from our car. The seat was installed "upright" against the inclined face of the front of the box which gave it a suitable recline to give Sarah the support she needs.
