試作T3.5号機も紆余曲折ありつつ無事完成。走行テストを終えた後、いよいよBicycle City Expo2018の展示準備です。諸事情によりブースデザイン、素材準備、設営すべて自分達の手作業。
The Stroke Cargo Trike is Daga’s new mobility solution for Japan. It fits Japan’s legal definition of an electric-assisted bicycle, making ownership and use as easy as possible, and like other products designed with Japan in mind, the thinking necessary to make a product work in the world’s most demanding market makes the Stroke Cargo Trike special anywhere:
Rideable: Mid-mounted cargo space means that as you load it up, the centre of gravity just gets lower and more central. The tilting front wheels are always visible to the rider and the double steering linkage is direct and light. This thing is fun to ride!
Adaptable: The surround frame, design-registered in Japan, will be developed with custom attachment points for maximum luggage flexibility. Boxes, bags, custom-built cases – bolt them on, strap them down or suspend them, it is up to the user.
What you see here is the latest proof-of-concept prototype, the Daga concept frame and steering system adapted to use proprietary running gear. Road tests have proved that it is easy and fun to ride on flat terrain and steep hills. Now we are looking for partners to help us take the Cargo Trike to the next stage – final design prototypes and into production.
