These superlight aluminium cargo framesets are handbuilt in Sweden by Martin (founder of GinkGo.Bike). They are produced in small batches, and have a 3 month lead time. But they are worth the wait!
Delivery time: Get in touch so we can discuss the options. If you pay a 30% deposit, we will order a frame for you and build it when it arrives..

Size Guide

It's a 'one size fits most' situation. If you are between 5'9 and 6'2 then you will be able to create a comfy fit with either a drop bar or a flat or swept bar. However, if you are less than 5'9" then the bike might be a stretch even with an inline seatpost and a short stem.

Minimum distance from centre of seatpost to handlebar clamp with a level setup (reach): [TBC]mm

As it has such a long wheelbase, the handling doesn't differ much for different rider heights. The issue will be with getting the stack and crank length, and saddle position in the sweet spot.

Fortunately Martin provides a steerer that's 245mm long, so there is room for about 100mm of headset spacers.

Paint options

  • The cheapest options are simple RAL colours, which are done in Sweden.
  • Alternative option to get the frame shipped RAW, so we can send it to Aurum Finishing for a fancy powdercoat finish with custom finish and decals etc. This allows iridescent or stealth colours for an extra £100.
  • The steerer hardware and kickstand were raw aluminium, but we have had them refinished in a High Temp black powder coat to increase durability, and improve the look. This is optional, but is included in the price. Or if you want we could get them refinished by Aurum Finishing in any colour you want.

Back Board Customisation

  • If you provide a graphic then Martin at GinkGo can have the aluminium laminate back board covered with printed vinyl of your design, in whatever colours can be printed onto vinyl (CMYK).
