  • SALE DONKY BIKE UTILITY VEHICLE $995 - In store only!

    ON SALE IN STORE ONLY: Check out this awesome custom Donky bike - for an amazing price!

    A cross between your favourite Tonka truck and a BMX, the Donky Cargo Bike is the tough, no frills cargo carrier. While it doesn't have the sleek thoroughbred looks of some bikes, it's more a hard-working pack-horse built for work and a sight cheaper than other cargo bikes out there.

    This Donky Bike is designed to be ridden easily and safely with whatever you need to take with you. Cargo load is carried on the frame, not the handlebars, so the steering and handling is light and balanced.

  • ZeitTrike and the MYOB library project

    zeitrike-myob-library

    Cargocycles recently supplied two ZeitTrike bikes to MYOB Headquarters for them to use in a new venture called the Little Learning Library.  The end result looks fantastic and their production team were really happy.

    Hi Matt,

    We’ve finally finished the bikes and had our first Little Learning Library launch. They look awesome!

    In fact, they look so cool a lot of people have been asking about the bikes! Of course I’ve been giving everyone your name so they can buy and convert their own bikes!

    Thanks for being so great to deal with.

  • These bikes will change your life

    You may consider this a bold claim but we don't think so. If you commute on a bike you may have seen people travelling on bigger than average bicycles with loads on the front or back and wondered what they are. Well they are called cargo bikes and this article attempts to give you a rundown on what they are all about.

    Our aim at Cargocycles is to make people aware that there is an genuine alternative for short distance travel using a car. We are not car hating evangelists, just practical people who love bikes and hate sitting in traffic jams. We also love a bit of technology and many of the bikes we sell have electric power as an option. If you've never ridden an electric bike but the very idea seems like cheating, consider what it allows you to do. Headwinds disappear, 40kg worth of weekly shopping is hauled right from the supermarket front door to your front door with no more effort than a bit of light pedalling. An electric motor is like having an invisible fit person doing the work for you. It's just like driving in terms of effort if you want it to be so on the days you are tired you can make the motor work or if you feel like it turn off the motor while riding and pedal home yourself. There is no drag from most electric systems so think of it as an optional extra!

    If you can get rid of your car or even one of your cars and get a cargo bike, think of the financial savings you will make over a few years compared to car ownership. A cargo bike may be a bit more of an investment than a conventional bike but it is a lot more bike and they are still cheap compared to a high end carbon road bike for example.

    Cargo bikes are particularly useful over distances around 2km. You will get there faster than driving and if you have bike lanes near you it will be a lot more fun. You can take an adult on the back or three kids or one kid and the dog plus all your shopping.

    These bikes will change your life! See below for some options.

  • Boda-Boda V3 Lite – The lightest electric cargo bike on the planet?

    Boda-Zeit-Lite-bottle-battery

    Boda-Zeit-LiteBoda-Zeit-Lite-display Boda-Zeit-Lite-motor

    Introducing the new Yuba Boda Boda V3 with our super light Zeit Lite electric kit fitted. Weighing in at a dainty 21.25kg with the electric kit ready to roll. You can carry it upstairs without giving yourself a hernia yet it will power you comfortably at 25kmh.

    The secret lies in the stealthy battery. Housed in a stainless steel drink bottle the battery has decent 6.2ah or 9.3ah capacity. Enough to tame those loads and turn an already capable hauling beast into something you can ride further and faster with ease.

    You can remove the battery in seconds - just one plug, so you can carry the battery inside at work or home just like you would a normal drink bottle. A large LCD screen keeps you updated with speed, battery charge and you can select 1-3 levels of pedal assist from a simple control operated by your thumb.

    Available at Cargocycles HQ for test rides now. If you are buying a new Boda Boda V3 the 6.2ah unit adds $1199 to the cost so it is pretty good value too. (+$200 for the larger battery).

    Call us to discuss or drop in to see and ride this bike. Bring the kids!
