Metrofiets of Portland, Oregon, recently introduced their bakfiets cargo bike at the Oregon Manifest bike show in Portland. Metrofiets is the first builder to produce Dutch-style bakfiets here in the U.S.
From the Metrofiets website:
Metrofiets – Handmade in Portland, Oregon
What do we do? We build bikes that last. You and your grandkids will thank their lucky stars.
To be more precise, Metrofiets crafts handmade cargo bikes (box bikes). Yes, our bikes look great, will last forever and ride like a dream – but that’s not the only reason we slave over every design detail.
Not even close.
All of the materials that go into making your Metrofiets frame, fork and box are sourced and made in the USA.
Box bikes are vehicles for social and economic transformation, they offer a new vantage point for viewing life and your neighborhood – as you glide along in style.
The frame, fork, and cargo box start at $2700, with complete builds at around $3200. Many options are available so the final price will vary depending upon your individual preferences.
