shorter than a standard hybrid bike, and narrow enough to be stored in a hallway, the Big billy will fit on trains, is compact enough to not feel big when using UK’s shared use paths and yet can has the capacity to carry 60kilos of cargo, two children and luggage, or one child and lots of shopping. It’s little but but with a big capacity.
the frame is designed and fabricated in Bristol from steel cut in the midlands. it is designed to be as light as possible but utilising the strength and comfort that only steel can give you. The chassis has many fixing points for locks or water bottle and the front and rear carry plates are designed to fit assessories from Ortlieb, Rixon Kaul, Basil, Steco and all of the rack mounted child seats including Thule and Urban Iki. Crates and panniers fit straight on and the mid mount child seat will work from three year and onwards.
We know that kids get heavier and hills get steeper…we know that budgets are tight and space on the road tighter. You can buy your big billy as a pedal powered bicycle, ride it like the work horse it is, but if you end up feeling like a pack mule, you can fit a mid mounted motor straight on, we equip the big billy from the start with components, the frame fittings, wiring channels and strong hub gearing to make the retro fit a breeze. So if and when the time comes for a bit of electrical assistance…we can supply or fit all you need to give your journeys a boost. Or you can buy it as electric from the start.
