Lit Motors' cargo-haulin' kubo

Lit Motors is definitely best-known for its C1 – a self-balancing, fully-enclosed electric motorcycle, that's still in development. The company has also been quietly working on another vehicle, however, known as the kubo. It's an electric cargo scooter, in which the payload is carried inside the frame. It's ready to go into production, so its makers have turned to Kickstarter for funding.  Read More

The 2X4 Cargo Bike, in all its stuff-haulin' glory

Cargo bikes are nothing new, nor are electric-assist bikes, nor even two-wheel-drive models. NTS Works’ 2X4 Cargo Bike is definitely unique, however, in the way that it combines all three.  Read More

The Pino Porter at Eurobike 2013

Germany’s Hase Bikes has already seen a fair bit of success with its Pino tandem bicycle, in which the front rider is recumbent while the rear rider sits upright – this arrangement allows both riders to have an unobstructed view of their surroundings. This week, however, a new version of the Pino was awarded the Eurobike 2013 Award for Special Purpose Bike. The new bike is known as the Pino Porter, and it can be configured for a variety of cargo-hauling options.  Read More

The Noomad with hard trolley

The Noomad, from Spanish outfit Polo De Innovacion Garaia, is designed to transform a traditional bicycle into a stable, three-wheeled workhorse equipped for hauling groceries, luggage, babies and more. The Noomad is essentially a simple metal panel connected to dual 18- or 20-inch wheels that swap in for your front bicycle wheel. To ensure a nimbler ride, the Noomad's wheels are connected to a tilting system that allows the rider to lean through corners.  Read More

The Companion Bike Seat adds a second seat to an existing bicycle

Doubling another person on your bike isn’t always the easiest (or safest, or most legal) thing to do, particularly if you have them perching on the handlebars, or sitting on the saddle while you stand up and pedal. Things are somewhat easier if they sit on your rear rack, but that’s not what it’s designed for. The Companion Bike Seat, however, is designed for just that purpose.  Read More

Renault has ripped out the passenger seat and modified the rear end cut-out to make a Carg...

Since first being presented at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Renault's Twizy has gone from concept to production model, and like many small young things, has also dreamed of becoming a firefighter and a F1 racer. For its latest party trick, the French auto giant really means business. The battery electric roofed quad bike has sacrificed its passenger seat and had its rear end cut-out modified to make room for a small amount of storage space. The result of this collaborative effort from Renault's Tech and Sports divisions is the new Twizy Cargo.  Read More

The Stayhold 'in action'

A quick Googling will show you that there are already plenty of car trunk organizers out there. While these generally consist of several pre-formed compartments, the Stayhold is different. It’s simply a plastic mini retaining wall-like thingy, that sticks to the trunk’s carpeting using a strip of Velcro on its underside.  Read More

The S-cargo is a prototype carrier that converts a conventional bicycle into a cargo tricy...

If you want to haul gear on your bicycle, but you don’t want to buy a whole dedicated cargo bike, then you might like Israeli industrial designer Ofir Yadan’s S-cargo carrier. The two-wheeled device replaces a conventional bike’s front wheel, temporarily converting it into a stuff-haulin’ tricycle.  Read More

The Convert, in dolly and trailer modes

If something is big and/or heavy enough to transport on a bicycle trailer, then it’s likely also unwieldy to carry by hand. Well, that’s why the Convert was created. It’s a bicycle trailer that can be converted into a cargo dolly.  Read More

The Urban Arrow is an electric-assist Dutch cargo bike that can be reconfigured as needed

Bakfiets, the distinctive Dutch cargo bikes with the cargo bed located in front of the rider, are becoming increasingly popular outside of The Netherlands. Practical as they are for hauling things like groceries, however, they’re heavy. Their beds also tend to be rather hard and unyielding – not ideal for carting your kids around. The Dutch designers of the Urban Arrow took these things into consideration when creating their machine. It has a padded, rain-protected cargo box to keep the little ones comfy and dry, an electric motor to compensate for its 45-kg (99-lb) weight, and a few other clever features.  Read More
