WorkCycles Fr8 (as family bike)

Want to carry the whole brood without a bakfiets (or a car)? The WorkCycles Fr8 is the bike for you. The Fr8 (pronounced like "freight") is our modular, city-utility bicycle system. It can be configured and outfitted for many heavy-duty purposes: delivery, industry or carrying kids and groceries. Thanks to an enormously stiff, low instep frame, robust construction, sophisticated geometry and special carriers it does it all with ease.

For family and child transport the Fr8 is usually equipped with its special, long rear carrier that can fit either one child seat and large panniers, or even seating for two kids. Mounts for two sets of footrests are built in so you can even invent your own seat system. Either the frame-mounted City front carrier or the Massive Rack with integrated parking stand can be fitted. There's plenty of knee room for a front child seat or the Fr8's kiddy saddle behind the handlebars. Once the kids are riding their own bikes just remove the child seats and you'll have a great city/utility bike that quickly adjusts to fit a broad range of riders.
