Coffee to ride – are you ready?
For travellers or commuters: With the Side Bag Mount, the recumbent bike manufacturer HP Velotechnik presents a universal solution for small luggage at the trike
Friedrichshafen. Since the bicycle is becoming more and more the universal solution in the fight against gridlock, it must be able to perform more and more. Above all, however, its rider wants to be able to take everything with him and have it ready in no time. With the Side Bag Mount, HP Velotechnik provides a highly practical answer in the field of recumbent tricycles. The universal side pocket holder fits small luggage containers as well as a variety of different attachments. This ranges from the standard waterproof bags from Ortlieb to the custom-made “Schluck”, the coffee cup holder from Fahrer Berlin. The new accessories can be seen at the Eurobike trade fair in Friedrichshafen (4 to 7 September), booth FO 103 in Foyer East.
From a functional point of view, the Side Bag Mount does what two-wheeled cyclists normally do with their handlebars in terms of luggage. But it’s better in three ways: twice as much, the lateral placement is much more practical and above all the “coffee to ride” does not influence the steering of the vehicle. Whether in the city or on a journey: A cyclist has never had a handle on small things so loosely and casually.
The Side Bag Mount is made of black anodised aluminium tube, weighs around 290 grams and can withstand a load of up to five kilograms on each side. It is available as an option in the HP Velotechnik modular system for both trike series, Scorpion and Gekko. It differs only in the way it is attached: either directly to one of the seat tubes or to the frame.
The Side Bag Mount is available from November and costs 119,- € (RRP). Further information: www.hpvelotechnik.com or under telephone +49 (0) 61 92 – 97 99 20.
