Zeitbikes Shorthaul and Longhaul models:
Frame: painted or powder-coated steel (depending on colour) with heavy duty rear luggage rack and marine grade plywood cargo box
Gears: 7 speed Shimano Nexus hub gears
Brakes: Rear Shimano Coaster brake, pedal operated. We took the decison to use the coaster brake as a fully loaded cargo bike is pretty heavy. You can exert a lot of force with your feet and once you are used to the operation it is very smooth and quick to operate.
20″ front, 26″ rear, alloy rims, domed, double wall aluminium, black anodised with machined outer faces.
Handlebars, stem: Alloy quill stem and alloy bars
Stand: Four point kick-stand (under cargo box)
Cranks: Alloy, cotterless

The free extras:

Lights: Battery operated front and rear.
Guards: Front and rear mud guard, full chain case, rear elastic tie down
Rain cover: Attachable rain canopy for cargo box for carrying children and a box cover for general storage.


One size fits most. Riding in the upright “Dutch style” riding position, bike fit is much less important than for a road or mountain bike. The stem and saddle height can be adjusted to fit most riders.


12 months warranty for non-commercial use. Any part that fails during normal service will be repaired or replaced at our discretion. Does not cover any of the “free extras” listed above, consumables, or normal wear and tear. We really like our bikes and want you to recommend them. In the unlikely event you have a problem we’ll make sure you are treated fairly and the problem resolved quickly and efficiently.


At the moment we only have metallic silver or black for the electric models. We can customise any colour you like for the next production run.
