The bespoke constructors challenge

This weekend Rodford exhibited in the Arnolfini gallery as part of the Bespoke handmade bicycle show. The constructors challenge was for bicycles built for a specific purpose.

We are working with Marks bread of Bristols Southville to improve his delivery by bike capability. The Behemoth front box is for the bulky but lightweight bread cargo and will be covered by a flexible rainproof cover. The improvements to his existing setup (workcycles FR8 and carry freedom trailer will include, disc braking, electric assist (sunstar so3) and larger, more adaptable carrying capacity (there is also a rear rack to fit).

His existing bike has been fitted already with a Nuvinci N360 infinitely variable gearbox and that gearbox also features on the new delivery bike and is ideally suited to the delivery bike role.
