Bike Friday has a new Cargo Bike that is light, agile and easy for smaller, lighter riders to carry loads. We have a Kickstarter Campaign going on right now to support increasing our production capacity since they are so popular.

The Workcycles KR-8, about $3300, is a full sized box bike like the Bakfiets. Workcycles is selling only the KR-8 from now on. Jon Lind is taking orders for 2015 until... today! We have not had time to ride the new bike but Jon has them. We hope to get a chance to ride one as soon as the madness of the Chicago high school application season has passed. Jon can also order Onderwaters as well.

Of course Chicago is lucky to have a few shops where families can try out a cargo bike. Green Machine in Ravenswood also has bikes to try if a kid carrying bike is on your holiday wish list.
Our favorite for children's bikes used is of course a refurbished Working Bikes Cooperative bike shined up for more use.
We love the small local bike shops in Chicago. You can't go wrong seeking anything bikeish for the holidays in a small shop. They can help you find a something special whether you are thinking small to fill a stocking or splashing out for a big gift.
