Bullitt Bike is Cool, Cargo-Carrying Cruiser

This is the bike Steve McQueen would ride, if he was riding a cargo-bike from a San Francisco farmers market in pursuit of two kids on BMXs who had stolen his organic Porterhouse steaks and cigarettes. If McQueen wanted to catch these ne’er-do-wells lickety-split, and still make it home with a full load of groceries after launching himself off the crests of the SF hills, he do it on the Bullitt, from Danish bike-meisters Larry Vs. Harry.

The Bullitt puts the sport in “sport utility”. It is longer than a regular bike of course (245cm) but not much wider (47cm) or heavier (24kg). This is thanks to the oversized aluminum tubing, which is stiff enough to stop you wallowing with a full load and light enough that you could actually get up some of those crazy San Fran slopes.

There are several models, and aside from the bright colors the differences are mostly in brake and gear configurations: you can opt for a hydraulic front-brake (a good idea) and choose derailleurs or a 7-speed SRAM hub (pick this one. It’s no fun trying to push off from the lights in to high a gear, and hub gears shift when you are stationary). This bike looks like a lot of fun, and you can even take the dog for a ride.

Prices start at ?1800 ($2,570), and includes a lock.
