If you are a cyclist who utilises a bike for transport more than recreation, then there is a good chance that you’ve found it hard to carry everything on a standard bicycle.
Whether that is more than one child in a seat, along with a laptop and a bunch of heavy textbooks or just a load of grocery bags there comes a time when even the best quality panniers can’t carry enough.
One of the most difficult challenges with a standard bicycle isn’t necessarily its inability to cope with the weight, it is often being able to load it safely. How many times have you been filling the panniers only to have your bike crash to the ground because it overbalances while you reach down for the next load? Loading kids into rear carriers is particularly dangerous in this scenario!
This is where dedicated Cargo or family / pet carrying bikes come into their own. Wide stands make the bike stable when loading and dedicated load carrying systems and accessories keep everything safe. With the box bikes particularly, kids and pets (even large ones) can safely climb into the box without you helping and the bike will not tip over. Further with longer wheelbases, or even the addition of a third wheel Cargo bikes and trikes are much easier to maneuver once under way.
