Crowdfunding since 2010

Function your bike into a compact cargo bike! Perfect for bike enthusiasts, but also for cargo bike beginners!

The product idea of my bachelor thesis "Le Vélo Cargo" at the Bauhaus University Weimar shall become reality! The Elephant Cargo Fork (ECF) is an adapter solution for entering the world of bicycle transport. A normal, 1 1/8 inch bicycle can thus be turned into a compact cargo bike, with a rigid, foldable cargo area and a smaller 20 inch front wheel. This saves space twice: an additional bike is not necessary and the current one can be used in a variety of ways.

Vielen lieben Dank Allen die mit-versucht haben, meine Idee in die Realität umzusetzen. Leider hat das nicht geklappt, das Fundeng-Ziel wurde nicht erreicht.

Das ist aber noch lange nicht das Ende von AprikoBikes und der Elephant Cargo Fork!

Über den Sommer versuche ich, alternative Produktions-Möglichkeiten zu kalkulieren und weitere Unterstützer mit ins Boot zu holen. Mal sehen was daraus wird.

Ich bin jedenfalls sehr gespannt was noch kommt und freue mich auch darauf! Nochmals vielen Dank Euch!

Liebe Grüße!
