Urban Arrow: Taking the “Car” out of Cargo

The Weekly Squeeze

TUESDAY, AUGUST 31, 2010 AT 1:58PM

Wytze van Mansum, designer of the Cannondale Dutchess concept bike, creates the Urban Arrow, a modern take on the bakfiets cargo-style bicycle.

Van Mansum’s design goes one step beyond the BULLITT bakfiets with the addition of electric assistance. This combination could “essentially replace a car” for most trips. 

The Urban Arrow prototype was nominated for an Eurobike 2010 Award and is on display at the entrance to the show.
