Living in a city plagued by daily traffic jams, I often prefer to take my bike on errands. Granted, it’s a Nashbar AL1, nothing fancy but a perfectly practical performance hybrid. While I am wholly accustomed to throwing convenience store goodies into my trusty backpack, a cargo accessory would be much appreciated. Boy has the internet answered my prayers.
A Kickstarter project was recently launched in the hopes of funding CERO One, an electric cargo bike.
The CERO One is referred to as a compact cargo bike, as its physical dimensions and weight are well within reason for a standard bicycle, and it incorporates a space-saving handlebar twist function for storage in tight spaces.
To further tease your inner tech geek, there is a 93-mile-per-charge riding range on the dang thing!
The company offers three options for cargo space — a small basket, a large basket, and a platform — any of which can be mounted on either the front or the rear racks, depending on the cargo.
Oh, and it’s kid-friendly, too.
An optional Yepp Maxi Child Seat can be mounted to the rear rack without requiring an adapter, and so can panniers, although maybe not at the same time.
With only $6,000 of its $50,000 goal pledged, the CERO One has a long way to go–but I’m already saving up for it.
