Interview Questions for Cargo Bike Company Owners

Hi Cargocycling Readers,

Thank you very much for being loyal visitors to our site. In order to improve the site, we’re thinking about adding an “Interviews” category to the site where we interview some bicycle designers, company owners, etc. We’re hoping to start by interviewing the owner & creator of a well know cargo bicycle company.

In order to make this a collaborative process, we’d like to hear from you the kinds of questions you’d like us to ask and so on. So please leave any comments on this post on potential questions, people to interview, etc.

Thanks! From the happy team at Cargocycling.org

Leaning Quad for Seniors

Img_1751 Img_1753

I saw a couple of companies at a bicycle show in Shanghai that were selling leaning quad cycles designed for seniors and mobility impaired. I asked the rep about the quads and he said that they sell quite a few of them to Chinese customers. He said there wasn’t much interest outside of Asia.

I know a few seniors here in the States that would love to ride to the store, etc., but all that’s available to them at the bike shop are mountain, road, or cruiser bicycles. It’s really great to see some companies putting their efforts behind bicycles for special needs even if it is on the other side of the Pacific.

I was so excited by all the bicycles at the show that I forgot to get the Chinese company’s names. Ugh!!!

Anyway, here are some photos of the leaning quad.
