Why your next cargo bike should be 8Freight
Designed by Mike Burrows
In the world of bicycle designers, Mike Burrows is as famous as they come. In velodromes his bikes have won Olympic gold medals, on the road his ideas have been behind designs from the largest manufacturers in the bicycle business. Constantly innovating, Burrows first created 8Freight in a workshop in Norfolk, Britain. The bike is his answer to the universal question of how to take what we need, and get it where we need it.
There are no accidents in the 8Freight design, everything appears as it is for a reason. We know that not everybody is interested in technical details, so here’s what those details mean for you.
Allows you to fix punctures without removing the wheel, especially useful when carrying heavy loads.
The two meter wheelbase means that when the road gets uneven, the front wheel will have time to stabilise by the time the back wheel hits the disturbance. This creates a relaxed, comfortable ride.
The 8Freight weighs in at 20 kilograms, not much more than a standard bicycle, so that you only have to pedal around with the weight of your cargo, and not the weight of your bicycle too. This makes 8Freight a fast, efficient ride.
