How to Build a Two Wheel Cargo-bike

 by GiulioC14 in bikes

SNIPPET:

This is the story of an old MTB frame, a newborn daughter, a big love for cycling and how all that eventually led to the creation of a Cargo Bike. It was 2011.

Some years later (and many other Cargo builds) our project of recycling old MTB frames eventually turned into a bigger one. But that is another story.

In any case, even if a long time has passed from that first bike, we are still very passionate about Cargo Bikes as we think they really can make a difference in urban mobility. So we thought..what about sharing our experience, to help as many people as possible to build their own bike? Of course the answer was yes!   

Pictures and FULL, detailed instructions:

How Popular Are Bicycles in the Netherlands?

Amsterdam is nicknamed "the Venice of the North," but rather than gliding down canals in gondolas, the residents of the Dutch capital prefer to pedal on the pavement. According to recent statistics, there are more bicycles than people in Amsterdam  ;D, and 40 percent of all travel there is done by bike -- compared with about two percent in London .

Amsterdam is so into pedal pushing that an enormous system of bike paths has been developed to allow cyclists to go anywhere they like, shunning what little car traffic is still stubborn enough to exist.

Bike Paths in Amsterdam

And it's not just Amsterdam -- most of the Netherlands is all about bikes. The nation has around 22,000 miles (35,406 km) of cycling paths, and all of the larger Dutch cities employ civil servants specifically tasked with maintaining and improving the daily lives of riders.

Bike by popular demand:

֍ There are approximately 1 billion bikes in the world, with China leading the pack at roughly 400 million.

֍ Bicycles existed before the word "bicycle" did; in their original 1830s form they were called "velocipedes."

֍ The fastest speed recorded on a bicycle is 167.044 mph (268.831 km/h)  :o, set by Dutch cyclist Fred Rompelberg in 1995.
