DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

The stunning Short John cargo bike loads up to 40 kgs on the stable front carrier with wood base and remains in balance for loading and offloading while parked, due to the sturdy double kick stand. Short John’s front rack has a low center of gravity due to the small 20″ front wheel and remains stationary when steering. This enables you to ride easily and safely with large loads.

The Short John work bicycle is also knows as the baker’s bike, the butcher’s bike, a deli bike, truck, little John or grocery bike. It is a iconic and heavy duty transport bicycle, that can be equipped with super-cool design functionality and luxurious features and accessories to ensure that you can carry heavy loads and get the job done in style.

The Velorbis Short John delivery bicycle is great for the traditional handyman who uses the bicycle with a front carrier and our wood crate or toolbox. It’s also ideally suited for mobile advertising and displays as the delivery cycle can be tailored to display your company’s colours and logo on its large logo sign or ad plate – a memorable, social and mobile way to promote your brand in situations where a really heavy-duty bicycle is required.
