Cargo Bikes 101: Everything You Need to Know About Choosing the Right Accessories

Cargo bikes have zoomed into the spotlight as the cool, eco-conscious choice for families, busineses and commuters! However, the secret to unlocking the full potential of your Cargo eBike, is to customise it to YOU! 

From front baskets to cabooses, the right add-ons can transform your cargo bike into a full car-replacement (for journeys up to 120km, anyway!). So, buckle up (or rather, strap on your helmet) because we're about to dive into the ultimate guide on jazzing up your Cargo bike with the right accessories for you.

The Must-Haves

1. Front & Rear Baskets

Think of cargo racks and baskets as your bike's BFFs. Rear racks and baskets are perfect for hauling everything from your shopping to your recycling back to the tip! Meanwhile front racks are ideal for stashing smaller items or adding extra cargo space for your adventures.

2. Child seats & Cabooses

Got kiddies in tow? Child seats and cabooses are absolute game-changers. Strap the mini-riders onto the back, and you're ready to roll! Wether you need full seats of little ones that can't hold on yet, or a Caboose for your taller (and older!) passengers - the Cargo can replace the car easily with the right accessories.

3. Panniers and Packs

Panniers and bags are where style meets function. Clip them onto your racks or toss them in your baskets—they're perfect for stashing snacks, tools, or whatever else you need for your journey.

Safe & Secure...

Let's not forget about the basics when it comes to being a bike owner!

Personal Safety

Helmets are a must (and for all passengers!). Our personal favourite is the Abus Macator Black Bike Helmet. Head protection is vital for a safe ride! 

Bike Safety

So we've decked out our Cargo in the latest gear, and now we've got ourselves protected... but what about the bike?

You need a good lock to make sure that nobody can steal your ride! We always have with us one of the Abus Bordo Granit Xplus 6500 Bike Locks. It's a Gold Rated bike lock, which means there's nobody breaking into it and making way with your bike! 

To Conclude...

Accessorising your cargo bike isn't just about adding bells and whistles—it's about turning your trusty steed into a reflection of your personality and lifestyle. So, go ahead, get creative, and deck out your ride with all the bells, whistles, and everything in between. Because with the right accessories, your cargo bike isn't just a bike—it's a statement, a lifestyle, and a whole lot of fun rolled into one!
