Two years of development have made the XYZ CARGO to a state-of-the-art cargo bike, that on the one hand not only fullfills the usual cargo bike standards, but on the other hand also stays an open source concept you can modify yourself.
Specifications of the XYZ CARGO: 250kg of loading capacity (incl. driver), disc brakes on all three wheels, a Shimano-7-gear-hub, and heavy-duty rims and axles to withstand tough using environments. Box is made from break-resistant Polycarbonate sheets. Weight of the bike: 32kg
PB43 har fået en helt ny og hjemmeproduceret lad-cykel. N55 har udtænkt konceptet 'XYZ CARGO'. Over en 4 dages workshop har Ion og Till arbejdet sammen med et hold fra PB43 for at producere dele og samle cyklen.
XYZ SPACEFRAME VEHICLES enables persons to build their own vehicles for transporting persons or goods. XYZ SPACEFRAME VEHICLES is based on a low cost, light weight, highly durable construction requiring only simple hand-held, non specialized tools to produce. The construction is based on widely available and affordable standard materials. No special knowledge is needed for producing a XYZ SPACEFRAME VEHICLE.
By introducing public workshops to pass on the knowledge of manufacturing a XYZ SPACEFRAME VEHICLES, the number of non-polluting, safe, light-weight vehicles – and thus also the quality of our public spaces inside the city – could easily be increased.
The first 'svajer' race in Copenhagen for almost 50 years.
'Svajere' were the bike messengers that ruled the streets of Copenhagen for decades in the first half of the 20th century, riding their huge box bikes and livening up the streets with singing, whistling and banter.
This year, the Svajer race was revived - aka The Danish Cargo Bike Championships.
It was a fantastic day out. My son [aged 7] shot the shaky video and I supplied the stills. The first song is a 1930's tribute to these 'svajere' - asphalt cowboys, they were called - and the second song is from the 1970's where Povl Kjeller sings about how happy he is about his bike.
