Buy a cargobike
***We now sell SIX different brands! More detail on the Hire page (do try before you buy, it's the only way!!).***
Babboe - Urban Arrow - Bakfiets.nl - Bertus - Tern - Nihola
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.
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. We also sell Outeredge Patrol trailers designed for carrying children.
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.
**We have lots for sale right now - both NEW and EX-DEMO - watch this space - this will be updated soon!!**
SHORT 2-WHEELER Azor Bakfiets - normal price £1920, Now £1700 + FREE raintent for the box £350 off. The classic Bakiets Short is a cute little cargobike with a small footprint but a big personality. This one in Petrol Blue frame colour is really classy and we've paired it with a creme raintent for extra visibility and panache. You can have two children inside the box on the bench, or one on the bench and a baby/small toddler on a support seat in the box, or one baby in a maxi cosi inside the box. Of course, with all Classic Bakfiets you can put a child seat on the back rack too.
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.
With 16 Shimano derailleur gears you can tackle those hills, and with Tern's fabulous adjustable handlebars and seatpost you can adjust it to be comfortable for you and switch between riders easily. You never have to worry about adding lights as they're built in dynamo lights on both the front and the back.
It can carry up to 160kg (350 lbs) and the Xtracycle panniers together with large back rack and board are versatile for those odd-shaped loads.
It's a really fab bike that will last you through from kids aged 9 months to taking adults on the back if you have the pedal power!
We have found that it's taller riders who feel more comfortable piloting this bike.
Contact us to try it out on a hire! (You get your hire fee off the purchase price too.)
