  • Urban Tactical Bike - Rok Straps

    We found out about this interesting use for a bike through our friends at Yuba Bicycles:

    "Ever since the tongue-in-cheek article from the CDC came out about using a zombie apocalypse as a way to envision disaster preparedness, we’ve been waiting for someone to build up a Mundo as the ultimate zombie defense bike.

    Rok Straps, a strap manufacturer and major supplier to the US military and many emergency relief agencies, has built the Rok Straps Urban Tactical Bike, as a proof-of-concept for what a bike can be in a emergency or military situation.

    Wonder if they’ll bring it out to the 2013 Disaster Relief Trials?"

    Pretty good idea and they have even camouflaged the Yuba to make it even more stealthy. We also like the bike trailer customisation at the back - ready for you to bug out with everything you need!

  • Some very merry Christmas bike ideas...

    We got a little side tracked today at Cargocycles and found some examples of what you can do to your bike to spread some Christmas joy. From adding battery operated lights to your ride to creating a Christmas tree out of bike wheels, there are some super creative ideas floating about. If you are really into DIY I'm sure you could rig the lights up to run on your pedal power to be even more eco friendly.

    And to the age of question of "Can I fit a Christmas tree into a cargo bike" the answer is yes! (Well one guy managed to do it!)

  • Zeit bikes feature in Gold Coast news

    The Gold Coast Bulletin recently featured one of our bikes in a feature highlighting the use of Cargo carrying bikes on the Gold Coast. This was an initiative of our latest dealer Pavé Cyclery. Test ride the Shorthaul if you are in the area. Give Ben Welman a call on 0755 722 915.

    The Gold coast will also host the Asia Pacific Cycle Congress in March next year. The congress will showcase Queensland’s cycling infrastructure and encourage more people to cycle, more often. Initiatives from the APCC will shape the future of cycle planning and help build a cycling culture in the Asia-Pacific region.
