Wallaroo Bike

Winther Wallaroo

Winther Wallaroo

The Winther Wallaroo bike, based on a classic Long John design, seems similar to the Gazelle Cabby.  It is a two wheel carrier bicycle with a fabric covered platform in front for up to two children; it is said to take a load of 80 kg in the front cabin.  The seats are equipped with a 5-point safety harness. We have seen it advertised as either 7-speed or 5-speed as standard.  It has an aluminum 6061 frame, front disc brakes, and an integrated Nylon rain/wind cover over a polyethylene base.  It does not seem much advertised, as a search of Wallaroo bike on Google does not turn up much.  In fact, it is not even listed on Winther’s main website.  The bike weight 33.5 kg (74 lbs), is 79 cm wide (31.1 inches), and 263 cm long (103.5 inches).  It is advertised at Australian $3,750 by its Australian dealer, but we can’t find any other listing.

Kangaroo Carrier Bike by Winther

Kangaroo Carrier Bike

Kangaroo Carrier Bike

The Kangaroo bike by Winther is yet another Danish carrier bicycle.  The Kangaroo carrier bike seems designed for those with large families.  Winther makes a version for four children, which not many carrier bike companies do.  The Kangaroo carrier bike frame is made of 6061 aluminum, while the front-positioned cabin is made with a sturdy polyethylene base with a nylon hood.  The Winther Kangaroo has 20″ front wheels and a 26″ back wheel.  However, with a hood and seats in the cabin it weighs in at a hefty 42 Kg (92 lbs).  The load capacity, excluding the driver, is 100 Kg.  The wheel track is 86 cm (34″) and total width 90 cm.  We could not find in the Kangaroo website any information about the gearing, hub or braking.  There are only four dealers listed on the Kangaroo website, so they are not easy to find.  The price is not listed, but it is quite high.  One blog entry says it would cost $4,000 to bring one to the U.S.  Despite what appears to be a nice design, other carrier bikes seem better priced.
