Box to fit Bullitt cargo bike, lockable, waterproof for sale
  • (Picture from when box was new!)
  • Did we say it was water-proof? Not totally - water comes in through the hinge.
  • Why you selling?

    Ive developed a large waterproof bag made by a firm in Scotland for my Bullitt- Start testing next week.
    Lighter (3-5kg) and collapsable for no wind resistance.

  • We replaced the box with a smaller, lighter one.
  • Noooooo!That box was our beer table!
    So long,my friend.
  • I'll take it off your hands if you've still got it
  • This item is now disposed of. £40 donation to LCEF should be arriving shortly.
  • Have a look here at our new bag for our Bullitt. http://lockerz.com/s/183993376

    Just a prototype at the moment but seems to work well. Massive capacity when you need it and weighs about 3.5kg.
    Not encountered any rain yet but is made from tarp with a liner inside so should be ok.

  • How's the new bag working out Ben?

    We're looking into developing a new storage system for the Bullitt. For a start it will be a lot more aerodynamic than the Alu boxes, weight is another issue we hope to tackle.

    It would be nice to know what features you or anyone else using a Bullitt would you like to see.

    And cheers for the box Bill, donation sent to the lovely people at LCEF and the box is proving itself useful already
  • @ Convoy - Yes bag is working out well. Weighs about 3.5 kg, is collapsable and holds more than a box (I found a lot of things didn't actually fit through the box opening so couldn't carry them!)
    Loading the bag is slower than loading the box but I guess its all about what you are delivering and the type of work you are doing. For me, I found myself with a large, heavy but 1/4 full box 90% of the time. My body and bike were being hammered by the drag & weight and the bike handled like a pig. Now, I am ripping around on the bullitt and getting my jobs done so much quicker. No comments of 'How much for a 99' too :)

    Will be posting on our blog about the bag soon, so will keep you informed.

    @convoy where are you based?

  • @bigbluebike We're in W1, London.

    The large, heavy but 1/4 full box 90% of the time is the problem we want to address. Time is money and there's no point pushing a huge empty brick. How about security, can you lock your bag? I know you can't keep someone determined out but its to stop the opportunist thief when the bike is unattended.
