Our Utility bike is optimised for speed, comfort, safety and front loading. A very functional machine, wrapped in some of the features our custom town bikes have won multiple awards for over the years.
Doing a mid week shop? You're daily commute? Or you need to load up for a weekend pic nic? If you think a cargo bike is more than you need, then this is about as functional as you get before needing to make that jump.
At the bikes heart is its geometry. We slapped our hands together, breathed deep and took a nice long, deep, dark, dive into the geometry rabbit hole for this one. By building a fully adjustable “test" bike, we could look at steering geometry and handlebar shape as a complete package. We could adjust the fork geometry, head angle and chain stay length, as well as the height, width and sweep of the handlebar and adjust the stem length too. Through iterative testing, we dialled in the geometry and handlebar shape to what we deemed to be the best balance for a bike of this nature. By pushing things too far in each direction we could locate the boundaries and find the sweet spot! For more on this, check our news story here.
We've come up with a stable machine, that still has a lively side when you ask of it. It can steer quick at slower speeds, but isn't unstable at higher speeds. It's optimised for front loading and handles well with heavier loads. Accelerating away from the lights, or attacking a climb on a weekend ride? Out of the saddle it handles itself really well too.
We offer the Utility as a frame set, complete or custom build. The frame set includes the frame, fork and handle bar/stem combination. Our complete offering is a cost effective solution using solid entry level components. And of course we can offer this with a custom build package for those that want to dial the bike further to their exact needs.
