Imagine a wheelbarrow on a bike. They have a large, sturdy box at the front set low to the ground giving a low centre of gravity. They are very sturdy and surprisingly nippy and nimble.
An even bigger wheelbarrow on a bike. Very similar to the 2-wheel version but has more capacity in the box. Not as agile but handles extremely well having the weight on the front of the bike.
A bike with a 'long tail'. The back part of the frame is extended to give a longer, sturdier back rack which can carry cargo, bags and people! Extremely practical without the large footprint of a box bike
I ditched my car last year and bought a cargo bike. Nearly all of my car journeys were short, simple journeys to school and the shops. It's the best thing I've ever done
I was sick of sitting in traffic during the school run so I bought a cargo bike to take the kids to nursery and school. Its cheaper, cleaner and I don't have to sit in endless traffic anymore
I do all my shopping. I take rubbish to the tip and I use it for work. I'm a plumber and I can carry my tools with me from job to job. I get odd looks from customers occasionally when I turn up on a cargo bike but honestly it is the best thing I've ever done.
