Cargo News Kinn Cascade Flyer
Billed as a “mid-tail with a twist,” Kinn’s Cascade Flyer provides the functionality of a cargo bike, but is only 6 inches (15 cm) longer than an ordinary bike.
Because it has a shorter wheelbase than the average longtail cargo bike, the Cascade Flyer can fit on standard bus bike racks as well as in limited storage space. Key to this versatility is the ability to turn the front wheel 180 degrees and lock it for transport, shortening the overall length of the bicycle.
The rear rack, rated for 130 pounds (59 kilograms), features a clever lockbox for small items. The wooden cover also rotates 90 degrees to support wider packages. Made in Portland, OR, starting at $1,950.
