Metro Pedal


We've just received this amazing new prototype cargo bike from our very good friend Chris from True Soul Design. The Metro Pedal is a bike "designed for the modern metropolis" and Chris has spent the past few years refining and perfecting the bike into the ultimate mama-chari do all cargo bike mini velo. You'll be seeing a lot more of this bike over the coming months but for now get following the Metro Pedal Instagram.
