Fixie Coolville Goes to Stockholm

Last November I blogged about The World's First Fixie Cargo Bike - my Coolville Bullitt by Larry vs Harry. Some photos dropped into the inbox this morning from Andreas in Stockholm. After reading about the bike on Copenhagenize.com, he decided that he simply must own it. So he hopped on the X2000 express train to Copenhagen and bought it. There was little argument. He was itching for it.

Finally I get to see my baby in the Swedish capital, where Andreas is a bike messenger. Thanks for the photos, Andreas, you madman! :-)

Andreas also participated in the 14th European Cycle Messenger Championships 2009 and came in 5th on his Bullitt in the cargo bike race.

Here's a little film from the ECMC 09 with focus on the cargo bike category.

Damn, I wish I could have been there.

It's a great looking bike but it missed being the first fixie cargo bike by at least 130 years. In fact almost ALL cargo bikes had a fixed wheel until coaster brakes gradually replaced them during the 1920's through 1950's.

Here in this 1933 Dutch "transportfiets" (cargo bike) race the competitors are riding fixies:

Just nitpicking...
