Bicicapace: Compact Classic Series
This beautifully modern bicycle blends function with pizzazz, to create a thoroughly practical and agile option for everyday use. Having a short wheelbase can really help for parking indoors, so the Compact measures between 168-176cm long, depending upon which model you choose.
The two frame options are the Classic and the Sport. The Classic is a ‘one size fits most’ step-through frame, suiting smaller riders and sharing between family members. The Sport has a step-over frame which comes in a 56cm, with the 64cm to suit taller riders.
Both styles can fit a Steco Rear Rack behind the rider and/or one Kiddo, with a maximum total weight onboard of 150Kg. This is comparable to the largest Family Cargo Bikes, keeping your options open as your needs grow.
The front loading bag is an equally elegant solution, capable of lugging 80 litres of storage with a flip-top cover to keep the weather and prying eyes at bay. The maximum storage limit of 15Kg is ideal for slinging a regular backpack into, with or without a second bag of shopping as well. For Couriers who carry heavier loads and/or external boxes, there is also a rack available which is capable of carrying 25Kg.
The technical side is equally impressive, with the gears tucked into the rear hub, various Shimano STEPS motor/battery combos and sturdy brakes too. This helps to keep the ride a joy, whether it be on the school run, shopping for heavy groceries or simply riding for the sheer joy of the great outdoors!
