Here’s a first look at our new, made-in-Portland cabin, which will be standard on our base boxbikes, along with a Nexus premium 8-speed hub, IM-80 roller brake, and other excellent components. How much? Nada. The price remains $1699. Why’s that? Because as America’s largest distributor/retailer of longjohn-style cargo bikes, we’ve gotten pretty efficient at what we do.
The boxes are made by a Portland carpenter out of marine-grade plywood, and can be stained any shade or, just like our boxbike frames, painted any color you like. Two sets of safety harnesses are included but aren’t shown here. The base of the box is about an inch longer than the original. The width is about the same but there’s a little more depth.
This cabin also works with our handmade ShuttleBug, and will shave several hundred dollars off the cost of the complete ShuttleBug.
Portland-made rain canopies, seat cushions, and flat rainproof covers for the new cabin will be available shortly. They’ll make you wish it could rain year-round in Portland. Maybe.
