Christiania 2-wheeler Electric
The Christiania 2-wheeler from Denmark is a classic European cargo bike, or ‘box bike’. It features the traditional wooden front box, upright riding geometry and full set of city accessories such as lighting, double kickstand, chainguard, wheel lock and mudguards.
We’ve made it electric using the eZee electric system with 36V 20Ah battery, super bright lights wired into the battery and a brake and gear upgrade to Shimano Alfine
The Christiania 2-wheeler from Denmark is a classic European cargo bike, or ‘box bike’. It features the traditional wooden front box, upright riding geometry, Shimano internal hub gears, Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres, and full set of city accessories such as lighting, double kickstand, chainguard, wheel lock and mudguards.ÃÂÃÂ
This is by far the lowest maintenance electric cargo bike on the market, thanks to the internal hub gears, puncture-resistant tyres and simple and robust eZee front hub motor with throttle activation.ÃÂÃÂ
A much loved feature is the hinged door in the side of the box so that kids can get themselves into the box (but not so easily out!) which is more fun for them and less heavy lifting for you (also a hit for older dogs!).ÃÂÃÂ
We have converted the Christiania 2-wheeler to electric using the eZee conversion kit and 36V 20Ah flat pack battery. We have also upgraded the rear wheel to Shimano Alfine 8 speed internally geared hub and have upgraded front and rear brake to Shimano Alfine hydraulic disc. No expense was spared on the conversion, with the inclusion of very bright front and rear lights running off the main battery system. Plenty of attention to detail on the finish – the battery is neatly locked underneath the kids’ bench seat and an external charging port has been installed so that you can conveniently access the battery’s keys and charge it without removing it from under the bench seat.
A tent pole style rain cover for children is available for this bike for $350.
