Cargocycles in Melbourne are proud to be selling cargo bikes from the famous U.S brand Bike Friday. Known for their awesome travelling and folding bikes, Bike Friday have now ventured into the cargo bike category with the release of the Haul-a-Day. While not a folding bike, the Haul-a-Day is a compact beauty, set up for the ultimate in convenience and is manufactured in Oregon to the Bike Friday brand’s exacting standards. What sets apart the Haul-a-Day bike is the smaller wheel size, a lower centre of gravity (perfect for heavy loads) and a low step-over height – the frame adjusts to riders from 4-foot to 6’4”! The Haul-a-Day is made with standard bike components that can be purchased and serviced at any competent bike shop.
Bike Friday co-founders Alan and Hanz Scholz designed the Haul-a-Day to meet the needs of car-less young families in Oregon where they are based (also home to America’s highest concentration of hipsters, eco-activists and cyclists). And those Scholz brothers really have bikes in their blood – from a background deep in the bicycle lifestyle and filled with innovation, they have honed their bike designing skills over many years and have incubated ideas until they grew into some of the most respected brands in the industry, including the Burley Bike Trailer well know in Australia to many bike enthusiasts. Bike Friday is an organic company in the truest sense of the word. Everything that Bike Friday represents today – the focus on community and relationships, the commitment to sustainability, the insistence on high performance and the unending push for bicycle improvements comes from a foundation that shouts “We Love Bicycles!”
But the proof is in the riding. Whether you’re hauling a load of shopping, riding with a kid or two or riding alone to work after you’ve dropped them off, the Haul-a-Day rides like a performance bike – the calling card of all Bike Fridays.
