BUTCHERS & BICYCLES
MK1-E - NUVINCI - GATES - CHILD PACK
The Butchers & Bicycles MK1-E Cargo Trike may be the most sophisticated cargo bike on the planet. Like Nihola, this is a three wheeled cargo bike with independent steering - also from Copenhagen. Unlike Nihola, this is a high performance cargo bike made for longer distances. Whereas conventional trikes tend to get tippy in higher-speed corners, the Butchers & Bicycles glues to the ground with its patented tilt steering. Add the Bosch e-assist, and the extra carrying weight is minimized so that it feels like you're riding a bike, not a schoolbus. Your kids never have had more fun, and that definitely goes for you too!
Power is supplied by the awesome Bosch Performance Line CX Motor which has a maximum torque of 75 newton meters and sustained power into the high cadence range for sporty acceleration, even when riding over alpine terrain. The 400Wh Power Pack will take you 25-70km on a single charge fully loaded and this can be doubled with the optional dual battery upgrade. The large, backlit Intuvia display and handlebar control allows you to keep your hands safely on the handlebar and you are guaranteed a clear view of all riding data at all times.
This MK1-E features the Nuvinci N380 internal-gear hub which has a massive 380% gear range. This is coupled to a Gates CDX Carbon Belt Drive system for a silky smooth and nearly maintenance-free setup. Perfect for city dwellers.
This bike is available in any colour as long as it's black or white and is supplied with the Child Pack. This includes a glove box for storing your phone, coffee and essentials, the child seat which has comfortable rainproof cushions and two 5-point seat belts to securely fit 2 kids aged 1-6 and the well designed Rainhood with Skyview to keep your little ones dry and warm. Finally the optional Supernova light set is powered by the Bosch battery, turn on from the Intuvia display and has a combined output of 410 lumens which will ensure even the darkest streets are lit up.

OK, what’s with the name?
Butchers & Bicycles started in Copenhagen’s famous meatpacking district, hence the name. We’ll admit it’s a bit strange, but that’s ok – the bike is truly amazing.
Will this take up a lot of space on the road?
Nope. The Butchers & Bicycles is like a European car, small but remarkably spacious. You’ll be just fine.
Tell me about the e-assist on this bike.
Sure. The Bosch Performance Line is a super powerful 350W system with a massive 75nm of torque, perfect for the accelerative stops-and-starts of a city and for exponential power uphill with a bin full of kids and groceries. It’s also light and very quiet.
How does this compare to other three-wheeled cargo bikes?
In many ways the Butchers & Bicycles behaves like a two-wheeled cargo bike since both styles tilt into corners and both require a foot down at a traffic light. The difference is that a two-wheeled bike doesn’t have the same traction and has a significantly longer wheelbase, both of which reduce handling. Nothing handles quite like this, except for the Babboe Carve (which does allow a foot down at a traffic light, if the tilt is set to ‘off’). But, unlike Babboe, Butchers & Bicycles uses a super light and stiff aluminum frame instead of steel and a Lexan plastic bin instead of wood. It’s an errand machine but also a bike for the performance cyclist who wants to go for a serious ride with the kids along. If you ride all winter, it’s a snowplow.
How the heck do I buy one of these?
Like Bullitt bikes (which are just down the street in Copenhagen), Butchers & Bicycles employs a parts-kit approach so you can dial in the bike of your dreams. You can choose between a high performance wide-range SRAM NX 1x11 derailleur system or the low maintenance Nuvinci 360 gear hub with Gates belt drive (no more oily chains!), as well a wide variety of high performance lighting options for midnight safety.
Can I use this bike for a business?
If you want to make the ultimate brand statement, this is it. Besides being a high-impact brand vehicle (literally), the bike itself invites conversation from both an aesthetic and technical point of view. Butchers & Bicycles offers several professional box options, all available by special order within short time windows. Email email@example.com if you’re interested in learning more.
How many kids will this carry?
Two big kids or four small kids or a mixed-bag of three.
Can I put a car seat inside?
You sure can. Butchers & Bicycles makes a fully ISO certified mount that holds most car seats. The other option is the Babboe Baby Seat (yep, it fits!). It’s good for kids ages 2-8 months (and takes up far less space). As you move from either of these options we recommend the Babboe Toddler seat which usually covers ages 8 to 18 months.
Can I store it outside?
Of course. But if you are storing it outside during the winter we strongly recommend using an internal gear system since this is built for outdoor winter conditions.
Does the battery lock to the bike?
Yep. That’s one expensive chunk of Lithium Ion. It locks inside the glove compartment which itself also locks!
How long does it take to charge the battery?
It takes five hours to charge the battery from flat to full, and there is no problem if you only charge the battery a little bit, halfway, or whatever. You’ll get over 1000 complete charges with the battery which is typically 5+ years of use before a replacement is required.
Is the unit serviceable?
You bet it is. For years the e-assist market was dominated by small fly-by-night companies with good ideas and no balance sheet. The consumer took all the risk and were often left with technical assistance phone numbers that no longer worked. Today’s systems are made by huge players like Bosch, Yamaha, and Shimano – and they are sophisticated, which means they are updateable, diagnosable, and if something does break, fundamentally repairable.
This is expensive! Will it get stolen?
Estimates are that over 90% of bicycle theft is tied to cash-for-drugs and this (unfortunately) makes every bike a target. Make sure you buy a good U-lock or a chain and your bike will be safe. You can read more about bike theft here.
