The guys at Metrofiets continue to astound and amaze with their two-wheeled creations. (I might start referring to them as the Willy Wonkas of custom cargo bikes).

At work.

They’ve just rolled out a “Mobile Bike Service Station” for a team of bike mechanics in Sacramento. Highlights of this bike include many of the tools you’d find at your local bike shop including,

  • a fully operable and integrated truing stand,
  • a vise,
  • a large utility box over the rear rack,
  • a removable sandwich board sign,
  • and telescoping, adjustable “legs” that can be deployed for “added workbench stability.”

The main cargo bin is large enough to hold three Park tool kits, three repair stands and lots of small repair items and accessories (like bells, inner tubes, lights, etc…). And yes, it not only hauls, it hauls

From their Beer Bike that shocked the world to a two-wheeled coffee-cart that was ridden the entire length of Cycle Oregon, Metrofiets is re-defining what a bicycle is capable of.

See more photos (and a few videos) of the Mobile Bike Service Station on Flickr.

cold worker (#5) – it’s intended to be humorous, yes, but it tackles some serious subjects.

The bike needs an umbrella or shade or something. Sure’n b’gosh it doesn’t rain in Sacramento, but once I left a wrench out in the sun for a few minutes down there, and burned my hand when I picked it up. Easy addition, awesome bike.
