Financing Now Available!

In 2008 they began to focus on the urban market with a model called the "tikit" and it wasn't too long before the Haul-A-Day was born out of a super successful Kickstarter campaign.

We bought into that Kickstarter campaign (a frameset/wheels) thinking and hoping that this bike could be an answer to one of our biggest challenges which was: Where is the one-size-fits-all cargobike demanded by the market? In our shop, one of our challenges was fitting the wildly different heights of many couples who want a cargobike. We bought the bike hoping it could answer this puzzle and we are delighted to report it has.



With the purchase of the bare framese…
