WorkCycles Fr8 Cross-frame (as city bike)

The Fr8 (pronounced "freight") is Workcycles' modular, city/transport bicycle. It can be configured for many heavy-duty purposes: delivery, industry, child transport or just carrying your stuff. Thanks to a stiff frame, robust construction, sophisticated geometry and a range of carriers it does it all with ease.

The Fr8 cross-frame was originally designed for tall and heavy cyclists. However it fits riders from about 175 cm to perhaps 220 cm tall, and is strong enough for at least 250 kg total weight. We can specially outfit the Fr8 for even heavier riders upon request though it's probably not necessary.

As a city bike the Fr8 is usually equipped with the City front carrier. The long Fr8 rear carrier can be added to carry large panniers, one or two child seats, or an adult friend. The complete range of Fr8 parts fit so you can outfit your bike to your needs.

Like all Workcycles bicycles the Fr8 with cross-frame can be built to suit your needs and tastes: You can choose amongst a broad range of options for gearing, brakes, front and rear carriers, saddles, tires and more. Just click the Purchase Information to request the full list of options. This bike can be boxed and shipped throughout the world.
