Pelago Cargo Bike Prototype

First sneak peak photo of the Pelago Cycles' forthcoming cargo bike designed and hand-built by our man Olli Erkkilä in Punavuori, Helsinki.

It's still just a prototype and has no name, price nor release date at the moment but according to the first test report it rides nice. One main point of the design is to keep the bike relatively light weight and easy to handle, the bike being meant as an urban family bike with both a child seat and box for transporting stuff. The actual cargo box design is still not finished, though. The bike will eventually be equipped with a Alfine 8 speed hub. I will keep you posted on the progress of the project.
