As you may know, I have a thing for cool bicycles and nice design. I've written about some folding bikes in the past, talked about my own designs for a wooden bike that I do plan on making some day as well as the cruiser that's almost finished. So every once in awhile I look around various websites on find some interesting bikes, like this one form Denmark, the trioBike.
The bike its self isn't all that different from a normal bike, with nice clean line and an aluminum frame, the thing I am intrigued by is the carrier attachment, it's removable, not to mention cool looking. This would be the perfect delivery vehicle with a bit of style, a better way of carting kids around. The detachable carrier can be used as a stroller as well, with a retractable third wheel under the nose. Three configurations in one package. I could see this as a bike for new urban parents in the near future, a nice blend of style and practicability.
I think I like this so much because I secretly want a rickshaw, but I want one with a bit of style. Or maybe I want one as a delivery bike at work. Unfortunately for me the carrier is only rated for children to the age of nine, no big people hauling for me, but I do dig the design, I'd get one in black with the army green seats and hood, for that military look I'm so fond of.
