Fietsklik Crate and Klik

After a successful Kickstarter that raised close to $80K in May of 2014, Fietsklik is officially in business. You can buy their two main products, the Crate and the Klik, from their online store here.

The Klik is the centerpiece: it is a platform to which all Fietsklik products attach, fitting on any standard rear rack. At the moment only the Crate is available for purchase, but more carriers were designed during the Kickstarter: a messenger bag, a pannier, a laptop bag as well as a child seat.

The flagship Crate is a collapsible basket-like cargo carrier which, when off the bike, has wheels and a strap for rolling around. The idea for the crate, the founders write, “when three high-school friends with a love for bicycles dropped a crate of beer from the back of a bike” and subsequently realized there was no good way to transport a large number of beers (or other goods) by bike.

Fietsklik, which means “Bike Click” in Dutch, is based in Amsterdam and manufactures all of their products in the Netherlands: “Our design office and garage are in Amsterdam while we use an injection molding facility and an assembly space just under two hours away. All of our plastic parts are made there, 100% of the Klik and Crate. Besides the nuts and bolts, the only component that comes from outside of our home country is the polyester for the bags which is upcycled from excess materials used by a major sporting goods manufacturer.”

    Hi, are these fietsklik systems also available for rent in The Netherlands? Me and a group of friends are going on a bike trip in the Netherlands (with http://www.hollandcycletours.com ) and this system would come in handy for the tour but we don’t want to buy them (and hardly use them at home). We only need them for about a week so renting is better. Thanks!
