Cargo bikes in London make a huge amount of sense. Joining up the city’s green spaces, via its miles of bike lanes, a cargo bike allows you to move around the city with ease, whilst carrying the things you need to get on with your day. Bringley’s been specifically designed to work in a modern urban city, from being easy to store, to having strong wheels to deal with potholes, so it suits the city from the ground up.
So, whether you need to get your kids to school, your cello to the rehearsal, the weekly shop home, or the cat to the vet, a Bringely cargo bike by Porterlight can help you do it all, and more.
The design of Bringley has been carefully tweaked to make it only 40cm longer than a normal bicycle, whilst still providing that massive 60cm long flat cargo space. This means that Bringley is easy to store inside your home, or hallway, and can fit into a normal apartment lift to get to any floor. It also weighs in at 18.8kg with it’s flat deck on, making it one of the lightest long-wheel base cargo bikes out there.
Also because it has two wheels, and the cargo space is kept low to the ground, Bringley is safe and intuitive to ride. The default frame size has been designed to suit riders, with the low top bar meaning when you standover the bike, you only need an inseam measurement of 74cm.
Bringley has a 60cm long cargo deck space, with multi-position brackets at both ends to secure your choice of deck, crate, or box to the bike. Bringley is by default supplied with a geometric patterned birch plywood deck designed to create easy ways to tie your luggage down. If you need a longer cargo deck on your Bringley, get in touch and we can discuss the options.
The BoBike Tour Exclusive double child seat option has been design to be the safest way to carry two children on a cargo bike. It’s designed for children from 9 months to 6 years old, each weighing up to 22kg. The seats feature double walled construction, three point safety harnesses, adjustable headrest, and integrated rear led lights. Full details can be found on the BoBike website here. The seat are fitted to a birch plywood deck, with a permanent footwell which can also be useful to store backpacks and scooters. We always recommend that children wear helmets whilst travelling on a cargo bike.
Bringley comes equipped with a Shimano Alfine 8 speed hub gears, as there are several advantages to using a hub gear on a cargo bike. You can change gears without pedaling, meaning that whenever you set off from a stop, you can be in the right gear. There’s also very little maintenance involved as all the technical parts are safely sealed inside the hub. The 8 gears are widely spaced to give you a range of gears similar to an external geared bike.
Both wheels are built with super strong 20” rims, and this small size brings two distinct benefits to Bringley. Firstly, because the spoke length can be shorter, the wheels are stronger and more able to handle the weight of your cargo, as well as deal with any impacts from potholes on the road. Secondly, their small size makes it easier to accelerate away from the line, as it takes less effort to make a small wheel spin than a large one, so it’s easier to pedal away and get up to speed.
Fitted with front and back Avid BB5 disc brakes on 160mm rotors, Bringley has enormous stopping power to keep you and your cargo safe, all accessible through two easy pull Avid levers.
The Frame and Fork
Built from 4130 aerospace type chromoly steel tubing, each Bringley frame is hand TIG welded to create a super strong, yet light base for the bike to be built around. Because every frame is custom, it can also be shortened, lengthened, or extra brackets and features added to suit your needs, get in touch.
