I have seen this before, I think it was in the commuting thread linked already.

It doesnt show if/how the mechanism is locked in both positions. I wouldnt want to ride it when it isnt locked at all.

Other than that it looks like a smart concept, parks in a normal space and hauls big stuff when necessary. Would like to try it out.

I like the idea, but also think it's stupid.




-long tail bikes are rad, but despite doing 4/5ths of my traveling by bike, i have no need for a cargo bike. I own a car for hauling stuff

-ebike is an awesome first/last mile solution, but so far they only exist as a way for folks to use bike infrastructure who would be better served by a moped

-folding is a fantastic idea, but i didn't see any details on how it's actually implemented...? Details matter.

-my 44lb tandem is difficult to carry and park... for a normal size human is this just an incompetent motorcycle?





Seems like a potentially awesome tool for a world that we don't quite live in.

That isn't a hard thing to do. In fact the beauty of the design is that there is nothing technologically difficult about it. It's a simple, clever and totally practical idea.

It's not a do it all bike and it doesn't have to be. The best way to look at it is as a cargo bike you can fold for easy parking, storage or to make maneuvering easier when it's not carrying a load.

I see various cargo bikes and e-bikes here in Vienna. Mostly good solution here, but not sure is it that good idea in les bike-friendly cities, or places with harsher climate or terrain configuration.
