The GR8 (pronounced like "great") is WorkCycles' development of their original FR8, an all purpose child and freight carrier. The GR8 has a slightly shorter frame, but takes all teh same options , racks, childseats, kickstands, as its bigger brother. It is more suitable for shorter people, but the reduced cockpit size makes it less suitable for carrying larger children on the central Child Saddle.
The GR8 is built to withstand the roughest treatment. The 4130 chro-moly frame is rust protected inside and outside, all fittings are extra strong, and the special wheels with fat tyres will take a beating. On the school run it is possible to carry three children. The Child Saddle bolts directly on to the frame behind the handlebars, without interfering with the easy step through frame design. This is ideal for slightly bigger kids. You can carry two smaller children on the extra long rear carrier using standard Dutch style rear kids seat.
As a delivery bike the GR8 is usually equipped with the Massive Rack front carrier. 60 x 40cm Euronorm crates fit perfectly and the load (up to 150kg!) rolls smoothly on and off the integrated parking stand. Various other options are available to suit your personal or corporate needs.
