The Long John Revival starts here!
The cargo bike legend is back! The USED-team convinced our Swedish friends from MONARK that the modern mobile world we support, needs the Long John. So they agreed to start production again. MONARK will be 100 years old in 2008, and the Long John is a part of that celebration. Preorder it right away by eMail. It will appear in a limited edition only, so don't be left out.
The Long John stands out due to it's impressive design. The extended wheelbase enables the driver to carry the load in his field of view, which means the load is always visible to the driver unlike having the load in a trailer behind you. The low center of gravity ensures safe riding even if you're carrying heavy cargo. There is a very robust double stand beneath the cargo platform for safe parking.
It's easy to carry even the heaviest cargo: washing machines, dishwashers, amps, 5 kids and the kitchen sink - the Long Johns will carry it all!
The Long John is made to be robust, functional and sustainable. There are a lot of Long Johns out there that were made 30 years ago.
Now we also have a wicker basket for the Long John. This can be used for shopping and together with the leather grips and saddle, make this bike something to talk about.
