Featured Build: A Cargo Bike named Avocado Toast
From the personal attention of our Bike Designers, to the focus and craftsmanship of our production team, every worker at Bike Friday knows that every bike we build is special. But not every bike build receives a nick-name before it’s delivered…
As christened by our production team: Avocado Toast.
Rumors spread through the factory about Avocado Toast. Was this a frivolous Millennial indulgence or was there something more to this build? Hanging in the stand the bike certainly looks impressive. While some cargo bikes boast of their capability in neon orange, Avocado Toast says I can do everything that the bigger, heavier overseas bikes can with a fusion of British style and American ingenuity. The classic British Racing Green colorway is set off by the Brooks-supplied touchpoints while the subtle mix of high-end components, like the Chris King Sotto Voce headset, provide the dependability essential to the years of trouble-free use one expects from a cargo bike.
With the wealth of accessories available for the Haul-a-Day, Bike Friday customizes the mix to suite the needs of the owner. Like many Haul-a-Day riders, this family will be running their kids to school and back, as well as around-town errands. Bike Friday’s Whoopie-Deux bars provide wrap-around security for 2-3 kids (depending on age and backpacks) with a cushy Xtra-cycle Magic Carpet for comfort. Our Big Foot rests provide convenient support for larger passengers or loads.
If you want to roll around on your own custom-built Made In USA cargo bike, this exact build, including components from Thompson, Jones, Avid, Chris King, Shimano 105, and Brooks, is $3629. Electric Assist is available new or as a retro-fit. With a more modest build and the same great frame, the Haul-a-Day starts at $1685. Feeling inspired? Or Hungry?
