8FREIGHT for business, leisure and family. The only bike you will ever need. (Test ride it now!)
Weighing little more than a standard bicycle, the 8Freight will carry all kinds of goods, garden equipment, children, animals and general rubbish. Ideal for business, laisure and family, it may become the most useful tool you own!
You can finally live in the modern world without a motor car permanently parked in your drive way. Hire a car when you really need it.
The 8Freight can carry almost anything you would in a car and lots of things you would not! And should you be popping down to the shop, the bikes low weight and relaxed handling make it a nice ride, so nice you probably won't even notice how much exercise you are getting. Once you've discovered how practical and fun the 8Freight is, you wont need to go to the gym again.
With the load carried behind the rider for stability, it has the ability to carry a small van or car load at speed, price and efficiency of a bicycle.
There are no accidents in the 8Freight design, everything appears as it is for a reason. We know that not everybody is interested in technical details, so here’s what those details mean for you.
Flexible Cargo Area
The 8 Freight Bike's cargo area is low and behind the rider- so long (and bushy) items like trees or boxes can be carried without obscuring the rider. The cargo area is integral to the frame - giving a secure area measuring 70 x 54x 25 cm.
Powermatic Deluxe Kick-Stand
Another unique feature of the 8 Freight Cargo Bike is the cable released gas strut to release the stand. Operated with its own handlebar control, the Stand pops into action enabling you to steady any heavy loads.
Easy Ride - even when loaded
The 8 Freight Cargo Bike is a pleasure to ride - with or without heavy loads. The relaxed, comfortable ride is the result of decades of experimentation by Mike Burrows to find the perfect head angle (80 degrees) meaning it is an easy bike to adapt to.
20 inch wheels
Small wheels are stronger than big wheels. They also take less energy to start rolling, meaning that the 8Freight pulls away comfortably even under heavy loads and they are monoblade mounted to ease puncture repairs.
The strongest commercially-available aluminium alloy, so that your 20 kilogram bike can regularly shift 50 kilograms of weight, with a maximum capacity of 100 kilograms.
Width is only 60cm so that you can cut through traffic as if you were on a standard bicycle.
