If you love the functionality of a cargo bike but prefer the fluid steering of an upright bicycle, you’ll love Butchers & Bicycles’ Mk1, a belted tilt-action cargo trike that combines the best of both worlds. Designed and built in Copenhagen’s Meatpacking district, the stylish front-loaded trike promises stability and functionality without compromising the fun of riding.

Built to handle everything from transporting your groceries to picking up your kids, the sleek Mk1 comes equipped with a super durable front-loaded box and an easy access, child-proof transparent front door. Each belted tilt-action trike is built with a powder coated light weight aluminum frame, Tektro Hydraulic disc brakes and a smooth and seamless NuVinci N360 drivetrain.

Butchers & Bicycles have also created an electric version of the trike, titling it the Mk1-E. Extra components such as a hood and child seats with seat belts can be added to the bike. Available in black, white, or a combination of the two, the cargo trikes are now available for purchase at the starting retail price of $4,615 for the MK1 and $6,790 for the MK1-E.
