Ladcykel – Another carrier bike from Denmark

Ladcykel

Ladcykel

The Ladcyckel, and an electric version termed naturally the Electrisk Ladcykel recently came to our attention at http://www.icykel.dk.  Mental note for the new year–learn Danish.  The price for the non-electric version ranges from 7,880 Danish Krone to 9,338 Danish Krone (approx. $1,587 to $1,880), depending on the configuration.  It seems competitively priced, but we can’t really decipher the specs from the danish website.  The Ladcykel looks much like the other Danish box bikes.  It looks a lot like Nihola, and to tell the truth, it might be a Nihola being resold–Ladcykel seems to be a generic term, kind of like carrier bike.  The specs say 3-gear shimano  hub (the rest of the specs we don’t understand, even with an on-line danish to english translation).  Anyway, no doubt the Danish love their carrier bikes.  The addition of an electric motor, apparently with the battery carried on the rear rack, adds about 2,110 Danish Krone to the price (about $425), which seems pretty reasonable as well.  It would be nice to know more about it.  Of course, an electric motor can be added to other bikes as well.

Nihola Cigar Carrier Bike

Danish Nihola makes a number of carrier bicycles.  According to their website, the Nihola Cigar Family of bikes is their most popular.  These are fixed-frame forward-positioned tricycles with a box-type carrier for children or cargo.  It has articulated steering so is not like a hot dog cart, for example.  It can carry 100 kg in the “cabin” with space for two children up to 7-8 years old on the bench.  The “cabin” of the Nihola Cigar appears to be aluminum with underlying steel posts.  The Nihola Cigar comes in 5-gear and 7-gear models.  The Nihola Cigar does not operate as an ordinary stroller.  Nor can it convert to a two-wheel bicycle.  It does not fold and can best be thought of as a car-alternative.  Specs are not on the website, but it must be quite heavy with that construction.  Nihola also makes the Nihola Posterbike, Nihola Flex, Nihola Big, Nihola Cigar Dog, and Nihola Cigar Rehab models.  More on these at a later date.
