Solid steel frame
If you are looking to gear up with two- or three-wheeled functionality, you need a hand-crafted steel frame that has personality. In contrast to aluminium and carbon frames, our steel is a cool and high-tech product.
- Steel is tough! Our frame promises incredible yield strength with a significant level of elasticity. It is one for the keeping.
- The strength of our steel frame allows for a thinner mainframe. TIG welding technoology makes our frame just light – or even lighter – than those made of aluminium. Until recently it was necessary to
- Our steel frame has a considerable load-bearing capacity, making stress fractures less common than in aluminium builds.
- A steel frame, less rigid than aluminium, rides comfortably. This is especially notable during long trips over asphalt.
Our fork, especially designed for cargo bikes, is tough and stable. Through the long fork tubes which practically reach the handlebars, the head tube is barely burdened and thus permits more weight.
The usable loading area is always at least the size of a Euro pallet (1200x800 mm), the supporting surface of the base plate is 1000x755 mm. Various superstructures can be screwed onto this. The superstructures can be up to 1600 mm long. All our superstructures can hold one Euro pallet at least.
We equip our bikes with a high-capacity, 250 Watt eZee geared hub motor, specially developed for cargo bikes. Geared hub motors have the advantage of minimal wearing, high efficiency and long lifespan. In addition to the gas throttle that comes with the bike, our new system has a continuous 5-speed shifter with electric steering assistance that transfers your pedaling energy upon take-off for an easier and quicker start.
The Enviolo N380x gear hub is as easy and smooth as adjusting the volume on your radio, in turn maximizing the rider's experience and performance. The combination of a slim switch handle and a display with an orange-colored bicyclist makes shifting intuitive and easier than ever. It is the perfect gear hub for those who desire a continuous, easier and more comfortable ride, and also for those looking for easier and less restricting solutions to conventional gear-shifting.
- Simpler assemblage and installation
- Continuous shifting without kicks or delays, even during intense pedaling
- A greater gear ratio range than many conventional shifting systems (up to 380%)
- Frictionless, quick to respond, dependable und totally soundless
- Practically maintenance-free
- Ideal for E-Bikes: Lighter shifting leads to more active and engaged shifting for the rider; which in turn means more efficient energy use, a longer range and battery life, and less abrasion on motor and gear components.
The standard battery of the MUSKETIER is 23 Ah (835 Wh). Furthermore, the rider may choose to employ two batteries simultaneously, allowing for a maximum capacity of 46 Ah. As a general rule we install Samsung or Panasonic cells with a nominal voltage of 37V, or an end-of-charge voltage of 42V.
There are three different brake systems available for the Musketier.
Our standard: the Tektro Twin with 203mm brake discs. These can be easily locked via a small hand lever (hydraulic), so that if the bike stops, it can simply be braked.
Our Magura upgrade: the Magura BIG brakes with 210mm brake discs. The brake pads of the BIG are larger and grip more powerfully. In addition, the Magura brakes are equipped with the Fahrwerker parking brake.
Our Fahrwerker upgrade: the most powerful brake system incl. parking brake comes from Fahrwerker. The brake pads are also extremely durable.
The standard tyres of the Musketeer are high-quality Continental tyres for Musketier 24'' x 2.4, with puncture protection and reflector strips. The profile and the optics are clearly robust.. The Continental tyre has a printed reflector strip on the sidewall and thus complies with the StVZO. The tyre is not only very puncture-proof, but the stable carcass also makes it more stable and extremely durable.
With our wider, but much more durable wheels with Crosshub hubs, we have a total width of 110cm. This allows you to get through even narrow bollards, but the wheels require much less maintenance.
On request, we can also install the narrow Bitex hubs, so that our Musketeer is just under one metre at 99.7 cm.
Lacking its own definition of what comprises a bicycle, German law has orientated itself to the treaty of the Vienne Convention on Road Traffic, according to which 'cycle' means "any vehicle which has at least two wheels and is propelled solely by the muscular energy of the persons on that vehicle, in particular by means of pedals or hand-cranks." This definition includes single- and multiple-lane cargo bikes. In any case, there are two relevant legal restrictions:
Maximum size: Width, one meter for single-lane / two meters for multiple-lane bicycles; Height 2,50m (~8 ft. 2 in.); and Length 4m (~13 ft.) is permissible (see § 63 and § 32 StVZO).

After years of experience driving rickshaws, we designed the Radkutsche variation to meet the demand of every undertaking: Drivers make smooth headway; passengers experience one-of-a-kind expeditions; and ample advertising space gives you the recognition you are seeking.
Our rickshaw is an eye-catcher with maximal driving pleasure. We equip our rickschaws with high-tech and hand-made components: From continuous shifting to LED lighting and hydraulic disc brakes, our rickschaw offers everything that a human-powered vehicle needs, both today and in the future. Furthermore, we offer canopy cover printing -- a profitable design option. Indeed, our attention to detail makes riding in this rickshaw a delight. Additionally, we offer a high-power motor to manage those long, inclined mileage without any problems.
