Cargo bikes are fantastic for urban cyclists in need of extra storage but they aren't for everyone. Most of us are looking for something between a cargo bike and a standard bike. Attachable baskets are the most practical way to achieve it, but what if baskets aren't your style? The bike crate by Maik is lightweight and durable so it's the perfect option for stylish riders who don't want a basket but also don't want to carry their shopping, laptop and change of clothes on their back.
"We are presenting the perfect solution for the people who do not want to ride a cargo bike, but who still must carry stuff around on their bikes, no matter if it's a computer bag, 30 oranges, two crates of beer or 12 bottles of wine." Rune Rex, designer and co-founder.
The crate is available in black, yellow or red and it comes with mounting brackets and everything you need to attach it.
