Torker Cargo-T

The Torker Cargo-T is a Dutch-style cargo bike that will be distributed by Seattle Bike Supply for sale in the U.S. in 2009.

Specs are as follows:

  • Chromoly Frame & Fork
  • HD Front & Rear Racks
  • Centerstand
  • Fenders & Chainguard
  • Headset Lock
  • Sturmey-Archer 3-Speed Hub w/Coaster Brake
  • Front Roller Brake

The Cargo-T is reminiscent of the Batavus Delivery Bike. With its Asian frame and lower component spec, it will sell for considerably less than the Dutch-made original.

    I’d say it’s more than “reminiscent” of the Batavus. It’s hard to see any difference at all in the design, except the components!

    I love the way these big Dutch bikes look in pictures, but whenever I see one in real life they strike me as too massive. Sort of the same reaction I have when I step into a sport utility vehicle. I’m all for the idea of sturdy, heavy, long-lasting bikes for urban use, but can’t seem to bring myself to buy one. My loss, I suppose.
