Cargo bikes & family bikes
At only 8 miles on a side, Portland is small enough even for families with small children to get around entirely by bicycle. While many bikes can accommodate a single child seat or haul a trailer, more than one kid plus groceries, perhaps in the rain, calls for a purpose-built cargo bike. Add steep hills or longer distances to the mix and you may want to ask us about adding an electric assist. The staff of Clever Cycles has been riding, researching, and even designing cargo bikes, well before opening their doors in 2007. We're excited to be able to offer our customers such a large selection of the best cargo bikes available in the United States and throughout the world.
We offer extended test rides for certain cargo bikes.
Cargo bike brands we carry
Babboe cargo bikes
Babboe, a Dutch company, starting making affordable, classically styled cargo bikes and trikes in 2007. Since then, they have expanded in popularity and export all around the world. They also make accessories to match!
Douze cargo bikes
Douze cargo bikes look, feel, and ride like modern high-performance recreational bikes. Their novel quad-cable steering mechanism provides remarkably stable, consistent, precise handling at both low and high speeds: long an elusive goal for designers of bikes in this format.
Surly cargo bikes
Surly cargo bikes are much sportier than most of our other bikes. Most even ship with exposed everything, and no kickstands or fenders, sheesh! We can fix that if you like, or not. The Big Dummy cargo bike seems to appeal to people who have a mountain biking past.
Urban Arrow cargo bikes
Urban Arrow updates the classic cargo bike design for the modern world and created a safe, lightweight, low maintenance and comfortable electric cargo bike with stylish appeal.
WorkCycles cargo bikes
WorkCycles provides probably our most distinctive utility bikes, straight from the heart of the most evolved bicycle culture on the planet: Amsterdam.
Xtracycle cargo bikes
Xtracycle's family-friendly cargo bike products have had an incalculable positive influence in our lives. Clever Cycles would not exist if not for this influence. In less than a year from opening, Clever Cycles was selling more Xtracycles than any other shop. Xtracycles are thick on the ground in Portland now, no longer magical unicorns. We couldn't be more proud. The new Xtracycle Edgerunner with the low rear deck handles amazingly with light and heavy loads.
Yuba cargo bikes
Yuba cargo bikes have long been a bang-for-buck winner with heavier loads. With the introduction of the Spicy Curry electric assist cargo bike in 2015, we know Yuba is on the right path to getting more people using cargo bikes to do their daily thing.
