Buy a cargobike
***We now sell SEVEN different brands! More detail on the Hire page (do try before you buy, it's the only way!!).***
Babboe - Bakfiets.nl - Bertus - Circe - Nihola -Tern - Urban Arrow
Based in East London we're a social enterprise that puts some of our sales, hires and events profits back into local community projects. So we're the ethical choice for buying a cargobike!
We can deliver to elsewhere in the UK, please enquire. We also offer a full maintenance and warranty service with a year free basic services on new bike purchases.
What's the Carryme Bikes offer?
We often have our demo bikes for sale at a discount, because they have been used for hires and for demos with customers. Check out what's available below.
We also buy in new stock and sell at normal prices, which takes about 3 weeks. Sometimes we will have a new cargobike in stock that you can purchase straight away.
If you hire from us, we take your hire costs off your purchase price of *any* bike from us. So you can hire one cargobike and buy another, with that hire cost taken off. (Not including any deposit we may have had to retain! But this happens very rarely as our customers are lovely and take a lot of care.) We normally cap this at a reasonable limit (e.g. £300) and keep it valid for up to 3 months.
We sell Babboe, Bakfiets.nl, Bertus, Nihola, Tern, and Urban Arrow brands of cargobike.
What's for sale now?
You can make us an offer any time on any of the hire models we have. Sometimes we have one or two are our priority to sell at any one time, depending on how long they've been in the hire fleet. But we sometimes buy in new stock just for sale - just go ahead and ask us. And you can order in any of our models brand new; order times vary between brands and can be from one week to about 6 weeks (sometimes more) depending on season as well.
Here are the vehicles we have available right now, both in our demo fleet and newly in and check out our Facebook album for updates!!
EX-DEMO - LONGTAIL FOLDING CARGOBIKE Tern Cargo Node - £1,995 - £1,900 - £1,200 Now £800 + VAT (£960 total) including some accessories The Tern Cargo Node (TCN) is a wonderfully versatile *folding* cargobike meaning that you can get away with getting it on the train (outside peak hours!) and it can be stored in the house or a shed with relative ease. With the accessories we've added to it, you can attach 1 or 2 Yepp (Thule) Maxi seats on the back as well as have the enormous Xtracycle panniers. For older kids, seat-pads can be purchased (the 'magic carpet') and there are 'Hooptie' bars that go round the rack that they can hold on to, with another protective bar round the outside to protect their fingers. The TCN folds once in the middle and the handlebars fold down too, along with the seatpost sliding down if need be.
EX-DEMO: NIHOLA 4.0 with -e-assist - normally £3,999 plus raintent @ £199. Our offer: £2,800 including the raintent. £1398 discount means ONE THIRD OFF the price! NOW only £2,500 including the raintent! (worth £199). It is coming up to 1.5 years old, has recently had a service and some replacement parts, and the battery continues to perform very well. It's been a much-loved workhorse in our community projects, but now it's got to go to a loving 'forever home'! Be quick to bag this fabulous bargain.
NEW IN STOCK!! Bakfiets.nl SHADOW STEPS - by Azor - £4,993 with NuVinci continuous gear system, Tektro hydraulic disc brake at the front, and Magura hydraulic rim brakes at the rear for excellent braking capability and low chance of 'locking' (as rear wheel disc brakes can do). Based on their Bakfiets Long but even better! (if that is even possible). If you like Urban Arrow you will love this one even more. Smooth, sleek, comfortable and with a powerful Shimano Steps motor and in a beautiful green colourway, it's the best cargobike we've ever test-ridden. Yes, it really is the best in our experience!
Instead of a steel frame, its aluminum frame is made of double-walled spiderweb tubing, making the bike lighter and stiffer than its cousin the Bakfiets Long. The front and back panels of the box are the marine-grade plywood of the standard Bakfiets range, but with trampoline-style side walls yet more weight is shed, giving it a super-speedy profile and ease of handling. We strongly suspect that the small size of the holes doesn't allow in water droplets readily, so with the standard range of raintents that fit all the Bakfiets, the kids will stay cosy inside. We have a black extra-high raintent that we'd be happy to include for free with this purchase (normal price £302).

Fun demo above! Current beautiful model below, with snazzy red raintent on special offer ~
