Workcycles Kr8 Cargo Bike
€2,699.00 – €3,399.00
Two-wheeler cargobikes/bakfietsen are one of the most brilliant child transport & utility bikes. Easier and nicer to ride than any three-wheeler; the low box and perfect geometry make the handling easy and the bike stable. Built with super-tough construction and all the features of a Dutch city bike. They can carry three young children or a baby and two young children. Actually with a couple or small modifications many parents carry four children in the box.
The WorkCycles Kr8 is the result of three years of development and testing. The Kr8 represents a considerable evolutionary step on every front compared to it’s predecessors and peers. For example the frame and fork, the bench seat and belts, the headset have all been revised. It’s lighter, steers better, has better ergonomics and a better parking stand.
WorkCycles is renowned for it’s attention to detail, the Kr8 follows in this tradition. Take for example the Kr8’s cable guides and routing to understand what sets the Kr8 in a different league.
As with other WorkCycles bikes, the Kr8 frame and certain accessories are modular. The design is borrowed from the Fr8 & Gr8, complete with Adaptive Seat Tube which offers great ergonomics to fit practically everybody. Like its siblings the Kr8 will fit riders from somewhat under 160 cm to well over 200 cm. Having the Fr8/Gr8 rear end also means that the same rear carriers and accessories fit the Kr8 as well.
Two kids on the rear carrier with another four in the box? Sure, with the Fr8 long rear carrier that’s possible. By joining the ‘r8’ family, the Kr8 inherited WorkCycles’ handy Escape Hatch, so the rear tire or inner tube can be easily replaced without opening the chaincase or having to adjust drivetrain parts.
Joining the WorkCycles family also means that the Kr8 can be configured in the hundreds of available RAL colors. The bicycle frame and the frame of the box can have different colors, so it’s possible to go wild or if your prefer, stick to a nice duo-tone or a zingy monotone.
