Model T was originally developed in 2000 / 2001 for the Copenhagen based company, Quickshaw, with inspiration from old rickshaws from Vietnam. The founder of Quickshaw asked Lars if he could develop a modern cargo bike for people transportation where the passengers sat in front. This was a ground-breaking feature since – at that time – rickshaws in Copenhagen were commonly designed with people sitting behind the driver. By having the passengers in the front, the passengers can enjoy the front view, and the driver has direct contact with the passengers.
Used for more than 15 years
Model T drove in hundreds through the streets of Copenhagen for years by Quickshaw, and most of these bikes are still being used this day. Model T is therefore a very tested cargo bike with thorough solutions that will last for many years. Since then, this model has developed from being a cargo bike for passenger transportation to be a cargo bike used for outdoor experiences.
Built to be versatile
As such, Model T has become a popular cargo bike for municipals, organisations as well as for private persons as a social cargo bike. This model can be used by many purposes, such as driving around with elders or children. However, the seat can also easily be raised and fixed using the rubber hook. In this way, the cabin can also be used for transporting several and large goods.
