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.

Die Bachelor-Arbeit

Mitte März 2021 habe ich an der Bauhaus-Universität Weimar meine Bachelor Arbeit im Studiengang Produktdesign vorgestellt und verteidigt. Das war auch der Startschuss für die Elephant Cargo Fork, bzw. deren Kleinserie. Zu meiner Arbeit habe ich habe sehr viel Zuspruch und positives Feedback bekommen, darunter waren auch erste Anfragen, ob die ECF käuflich zu erwerben wäre. Darauf hin habe ich mich hinter das Projekt geklemmt und kann jetzt, etwa ein Jahr später, das Crowdfunding zur Elephant Cargo Fork Kleinserie vorstellen.
