Connecting the transportation dots
The Node is for riders who want it all: the convenience of a folding bike plus the comfort of a big sturdy city bike. The Node rolls on full-size wheels and rides like a Dutch city bike—but folds down small in seconds for easy storage, transport, and security. At the intersection of folding and full-size, the Node stands ready for service.
Overall, this is an extremely user-friendly cargo bike, with a price that reflects its quality specification.
If you thought cargo bikes made errands and city living easier, you've gotta try one that can fit in the trunk of a car
This bike is the long-awaited solution for people who need (or really, really want) a cargo bike but don’t have the space to store it.
