WorkCycles Fr8 Universal 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, low instep frame, robust construction, sophisticated geometry and a range of carriers it does it all with ease.

Not only is the Fr8 versatile in carrying loads, it also fits almost all riders. It adjusts in seconds to fit riders from about 160 cm to 200c m tall, and is strong enough for at least 250 kg total. We can specially outfit the Fr8 for even heavier riders upon request.

As a city-utilty bike the Fr8 is usually equipped with the City front carrier. The special, long rear carrier can also be fitted to carry large panniers, up to two child seats, or a friend. Of course the full range of Fr8 parts fit so you can outfit your bike as you wish, and change it later when your needs change.

Like all WorkCycles bicycles the Fr8 with universal 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.
