Denton, TX: Cargo Bike startup Urban Tribe Cargo Bicycles officially launched their website www.urbantribecargobicycles.com on July 12th, 2017. Urban Tribe will be building cargo bikes locally in Denton in order to ship nationwide. The Danish-inspired family cargo bike design is one of the first of its kind to be sold in the United States.
The idea for the business came during a family trip to Copenhagen, Denmark. Commonly known as the Bicycle Capital of the World, 50% of Copenhagen residents commute by bike on a daily basis on the city’s 250 miles of bike lanes. Aaron Powell, Urban Tribe founder observed “Not only were there no SUVs on the road, there were large 3-wheeled cargo bikes everywhere that were transporting kids to schools, grocery stores, and playgrounds. I knew our family needed to get one when we came back to Denton! We found that no one was selling a bike like this anywhere in the country, so Urban Tribe was born.”
Urban Tribe’s flagship cargo bike model “The Gatherer”, stands out from typical bike trailers and child bike seats with the following features:
- The cargo box is in front of the handlebars, allowing parents to talk to their kids while riding.
- The cargo bike can carry up to 4 children and 220 pounds
- The bike comes equipped with an electric motor to assist with hills and heavy loads.
- The bikes will ship from Denton, TX fully assembled and ready to ride.
On launching the website, Urban Tribe founder Aaron Powell commented: “Our cargo bikes are going to change how the American family travels with their kids. For those living in the city, it is a true car-killer. After months of preparation, I am thrilled to finally show off our bikes to the world!”
