Danish Cargo Bikes

Danish bikes have global reputations, but it is in the cargo bike niche market that things are really moving forward for Danish Design.

The Nihola is the cargo bike with the most awards and the best reputation. www.nihola.info. Lightweight and roomy, it also comes in varying sizes.

It is this bike that has enjoyed a massive export market and it can be seen all over Europe.

The Sorte Jernhest [Translation: Black Iron Horse] is a classic. The design is radically different and, despite it's weight, it is a pleasure to ride.

The Cash & Carry bike is the cheapest on the market. Doesn't make it great, however. But you see many of them on the streets.

The Christiania bike [not pictured] basically started it all on the Danish market. It is much heavier than the present competition but it remains a staple on the streets of Copenhagen. It's a legend in it's own time.

Then you have the Triobike. A 3 in 1 solution to your urban, European needs. A bike on it's own, a stroller and a cargo bike. www.triobike.com
