christophe machet: camioncyclette transportation bike

 

 

 

spotted at the interieur biennale in kortrijk, belgium, as part of the ‘youngdesignersfair’ – a show of young talents of today and tomorrow – the ‘camioncyclette’ transportation bicycle by swiss designer christophe machet carries loads up to 150kg. conceived as a rectangular basket on wheels, the entirety of the bike frame can be used to bear cargo – more than 120L worth of it. the front hamper doesn’t move with the wheel, making the ride more stable, as well as safer. located near the crank there is space for two batteries in the case that the user requires electric assistance.

the bike has been conceived as a basket on two wheels

    fantanntic says:
  • Love it ! Would’ve been perfect for the days (in NYC) I used to ride my baby daughter on the back, groceries and errands spilling over the front basket. Only caveat, how long would it stay on the city streets without getting swiped!

    I’ve hauled lumber, a table saw, two dogs and a guitar, you name it…

    kyle says:
