An extreme cargobike
"I have this 750W motor, a regular cruiser bike and a Nihola cargo bike. Do you want to merge the three things into one bike?"
"Have you become completely raving crazy!?! It will be a bicycles monster truck on drugs, and about as illegal to drive in traffic! ... Okay, you have convinced us."
We have admittedly taken some editorial liberties in the above quotes, but it is good enough: We were asked to build a very special cargo bike. Our work consisted of 2 parts. The first task was to remove the rear part of the Nihola cargo bike and replace it with a cruiser bike. There was cutting, welding. Steering, securing and bracing were built. The goal was to make a cargo bike with a very comfortable and reclined riding position. And it succeeds!
Such a bike is very, very heavy, and quite inefficient to ride. Our customer had thought of that, and had thus acquired a powerful electric bicycle system. Adapting a regular bike to ride a center engine is temporarily not something you "just do". There had to be cutting and welding again, and new solutions had to be found. It worked too!
The result was a very powerful and eerie well-running cargo bike. Of course, it also got a seat from a motorcycle. It may have been test driven a little more than was necessary. Hold up how much fun it was!
