Two or three-wheeler?
Choosing between a two-wheeler or a tricycle is a fundamental choice. A cargo bike with two wheels cycles similar to a regular bicycle and is approx. 70 cm wide. It has less resistance due to two instead of three wheels and is therefore suitable for cycling long distances. The bike is agile and very suitable to use in a busy city.
A tricycle with three wheels gives a lot of strength and stability when stationary.. This allows you to step on and off easily if, for example, you have to deliver something. Because the weight is divided over two front wheels, this bike is very suitable for transporting larger volumes.
Can I use the cargo bike on the bike path?
In the Netherlands, bicycles with two wheels may not be wider than 0.75 meters and bicycles with three wheels not wider than 1.50 meters. With all bicycles from Centaur Cargo you can drive on a bike path in the Netherlands! The bicycles with three wheels, which are wider than 0.75 meters, may also use the roadway.
What does Centaur Cargo mean?
