a simple versatile load carrier, the ‘donky bike‘ by ben wilson is designed for urban living, offering an easy way to transport cargo around town. the utility vehicle has been conceived, considering the load-carrying designs of the nethlerlands in combination with the strength and simplicity of BMX components, resulting in a compact two-wheeler which has a strong, durable frame with low-maintenance components which can be universally replaced and repaired.

the bike features a square-section beam which carries the overall load set-upon it, and offers a platform in which front and rear attachments can be connected easily, supported on 20″ wheels. there is ease of handling and steering even at low speeds through traffic, and loaded with goods. the key to easy riding is to transfer the weight down through the frame without ‘hanging’ your cargo on the handlebars.

  • So I think we all get that you can put different things on a plane surface but how do you prevent the things falling of the platform when the unexpected kicks in and you have to make a turn?
