If I could do all of my shopping on a Citibike I would, but the last bulky, heavy thing (an airbed and compressor)I tried carrying in the front basket was a near disaster. If only they offered cargo bike options.
French company Yuba Bikes has just rolled out their first front-loader cargo bike, the Supermarché, which I’d love to see added to Citibike’s fleet:
Constructed from lightweight aluminum, the Supermarché steers nimbly with a double redundant cable system and double-ended brake cable. Keeping with our cargo roots, we’ve included a Yepp compatible rear cargo rack over a 20″ rear wheel for the extras.
The bike can carry 300 pounds. And if you’re one of those weirdos who’s more focused on parenting than drinking from beer kegs, you can configure the bike to your liking:
There are optional bamboo add-ons:
And finally, here’s a look at the bike in action, and a closer look at its features:
