Portland bike builder Joseph Ahearne will launch his new Cycle Truck bike at the Pedal Nation Bicycle Show today. You might remember the first unveiling of this new concept at the Oregon Bicycle Constructor’s Association show back in November.
At that show, Ahearne told me that, “This is the cargo bike Portland needs.” Ahearne has been burning the midnight oil on this thing to make it a production bike that will be more accessible than the custom, one-off bikes he’s known for.
I love this bike’s versatility. It can be a serious commuter, family bike, or just a monster cargo rig. Ahearne just flipped the switch on the Cycle Truck website. Go read more about it and stay tuned for photos and more info gleaned from the show (I’m headed over there right now).
The Cycle Truck will sell for $1,730 for frame/fork/rack or get one completely built starting at $2,710.
