You don't know AddBike yet ?
The AddBike is a two-wheeled pendular frame that is secured to the fork of any bike, replacing the front wheel. It transforms a standard bike into an urban delivery cargo bike, on which modules can easily be attached. The Carry’Shop, Carry’Box and Carry’Box Kid modules are specifically designed for families and professionals who are active, on the go, and environmentally conscious.
The AddBike was designed in France by a dynamic startup by the same name, founded in Lyon in 2015 by Renaud Colin, an avid urban cycler and R&D project specialist. A father of young children himself, Mr. Colin has devised a bike accessory that turns an ordinary bicycle into a secure and practical cargo bike that is fun to ride and easy to handle. With this invention, he aims to transform the cycling culture and develop an innovative alternative means of transportation in a context of global sustainable development.
