We were cargo, before cargo was cool!

Visionary is Seattle E-Bike's middle name, or it would be if it were not so awkward.  The first fat bike you ever saw in Seattle probably came from us about five and a half years ago.  The first electric fat bike and quite possibly the first mid-drive electric bikes.

We have also been selling cargo bikes, both electric and non-electric, for almost six years.  Johnny Loco, Worksman, Yuba, Surly, Urban Arrow. This year, in the US, will be the first real "year of the E-Bike."  But everywhere, including Europe, where E-Bikes now lead unassisted bikes in sales, cargo bikes have suddenly become it.

About time.  Usings electric assist to carry cargo, including that most precious of Cargo, children, is a tremendous way to leverage the power.  You can carry two kids, or 20 bags of groceries, or and entire house painting project. If you are a restaurateur who shops the market, you can forget the traffic, pick up 10 loaves of french bread, 6 salmon on ice, 8 heads of Lacinato kale, 12 mangoes, 20 oranges, 8 plantains, a kazoo, and of course, 25 pounds of onions, then be back in your Pioneer Square kitchen 15 minutes after you leave the market, 30 minutes quicker than it would take you in a small truck at 2 pm, an hour quicker than a 5 o'clock.   Oh, and you can brag on your menu that the locavore food was transported with zero emission technology and used less than 1/2 of one percent of the energy resources a small truck would. 

If you have kids, our Urban Arrows gently guide there movements with five point belts, and encase them in a carriage surrounded by thick aluminum tubing lines with the same amazing material found in our best helmets

Cargo bikes are versatile, practical, incredibly easy on the earth, cool looking and so much fun.  The Urban Arrow Shorty even rides like a regular bike.  Stop by and try one today!

      

*Note to our Johnny Loco fans:  we have almost sold out of the half container of Locos we had.  Procurement is difficult, so we are taking subscriptions for the next load.  Give us a call, pay one third down, and reserve your Loco in advance!
