2017 International Cargo Bike Festival Nijmegen

Although the 2017 International Cargo Bike Festival Nijmegen was 3 months ago my step son only came over to visit us in the UK today, and he returned my camera that I left in his apartment.

Enjoy:

Do I see a double wishbone suspension with adjustable springs there?

You certainly did, and this the brand: http://envancorven.nl/ and the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/EnvanCorven/?hc_location=ufi

Some interesting looking bikes there, most you would rarely if ever see here in the U.S.
In Europe it seems the cargo hauling philosophy is to incorporate it within the bike itself in many unique ways while here in the U.S. we tend to go with trailers to haul our cargo.
I have a cargo trailer with a 300 pound weight limit and I like being able to simply take the trailer off my bike and enjoy riding it just as a bike. But I enjoyed looking at all the pictures of those bikes.

That's great, I rode a 'bakmoped' for a while, and it was really fun but the leaf springs weren't contributing much. It's just a really good suspension set up, can't wait till people start racing them too. Like the art deco style front very much.

I have no picture of that one, it was well before digital photography, it wasn't mine anyway. But it was great because there was no mandatory helmet like 2-wheeled mopeds, and police never checked them for tuning and engine displacement like normal mopeds, above 50cc you need a motorcycle licence and I never have one and riding without a licence is quite expensive. It used to be the secondary mode of transport in thet alt left/squatter scene, which I wasn't part of, but they organized races too, always very unpretentious events.

Quite a lot of recent video's though:
