Hudson Urban Bicycles

Hudson Urban Bicycles is an American custom bicycle builder located in the West Village (New York City). They make these really COOL rear load cargo tricycles for carrying kids. The NY Times did a video interview of the owner talking about his design. If you’re in NYC, definitely check them out.

BTW: The mom in the photo driving the cargo tricycle is the actress Kate Winslet from the movie Titanic. Couldn’t ask for a better endorsement.

    I live in Denmark where we have a wide variety of cargo bikes for transporting kids. However, we do not have any read-load cargo bikes and I would really love to get hold of one. Is the company, Hudson Urban Bicykles, too small to handle postal orders or is there some other dealer that could be helpful in mediating? Kind regards, Mali

    I think Kate’s got her right foot down and on the phone because her front tire looks flat. Either that or the seat is way to high and she’s just a ditz.

    A very classy bike, I’m thinking of getting a custom designed kid bike in that sort of flavor for my children to play with.

    I just got one of these a week or so ago! George Bliss (master pedicab builder and atributed as coining the phrase “critical mass” in relation to bikes) of the HUB in NYC made it & says I am his “suburban experiment” with these trikes (he’s made them mostly for NYC moms). I’m riding it as transpo for me & my first-grader in Princeton, NJ & ours is orange & black. I don’t use my cell when riding, but I like that its a stable trike rather than a two-wheeler and I can stop or slow down to chat with friends we see pedestrianing around our town. Funny about the flat tire observation, George told me repeatedly to keep the tires inflated and says that the most common thing he sees with these is that the owners don’t keep their tires inflated (he also sold me a pump).

    Fantastic article and a great way to get around without using the car. I agree with Abbi, its a nice idea to be able to stop without the bike tipping with a child strapped in the back..

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and
    tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours lately, but I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is lovely price sufficient for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content as you did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.

  1. New Idea: the Cargo Bike Club « the ubiquitous blog Says:

    Why would you want a Cargo Bike? In places that have a cycling culture, cargo bikes are used in the same way as a second car, for taking the kids to school, doing the weekly shop, moving flat, and all that sort of thing. Indeed some people use them instead of a family car. The important thing to remember is, we are not talking about poor countries here, but the likes of Denmark, the Netherlands, Germany and Austria. Also, cargo bikes are cool! They are increasing in popularity all over the place, even yummy mummies and (I hate to use this word but, here goes) Celebrities are using cargo bikes.
