*** Omnium Cargo bikes are special order only; we do not keep them in store ***
The Cargo V3 everybody! The same fast and light Omnium as you know it, now with adjustable rocker dropouts! With the big comfy tires and trusty thru axles of the WiFi, now combined with the new super functional dropouts, we once again we feel we’ve created the ultimate cargo bike where versatility is at the top of the list.
The adjustable rocker dropouts allow you to run a variety of drive train options (sorry not simultaneously), ranging from external gears with a derailleur to internal gears and belt drive! Heck you can even run it fixed if you’re that type of nut! The swappable inserts allow you to chose between thru axle and quick release depending on your rear hub spacing and gear component choice. Maybe even carry a spare set to easily replace a broken gear hanger if need be.
The Cargo is an incredibly versatile, lightweight and fast cargo bike that can handle heavy loads and big objects with ease.
The best part is, it rides like a normal bike when unloaded, due to it‘s clever construction and familiar geometry.
The Cargo is also the model with the longest wheelbase, which calls for very stable handling. The wheelbase also allows for great stability when loading the rack on your own, as the weight is positioned in the middle of the front wheel and the kickstand.
Need to pick up your new dream sofa? Easy. Bringing your kid to the daycare before work? No problem! Bring a computer for work or a change of clothes for the gym in a waterproof duffle and you‘re good to go, rain or shine, all year long.
The Cargo V3 is designed around 55mm (2.15?) tires front and rear. The list of benefits tied to bigger tires like these is long, but here’s a few we find important. High volume tires run at lower tire pressure, creating a significant layer of suspension between you and the ground. This results in far more comfort and control while riding on all surfaces, making easy work of rough roads, gravel, and cobblestones. The fast semi-slick tire tread design results in a minor rolling speed penalty, but more importantly increases grip, stability, and also reduces the risk of punctures.
The frame and fork have also been updated to take 15 x 100mm front and 12 x 142mm rear thru axles. Although thru axles were first seen on downhill mountain bikes in the late 90’s, most disc brake bikes these days use them. They make perfect sense on our cargo bikes. The axle bolts through a closed hole in the frame and fork, then through the hub, and threads directly into the dropout on the other side. Most importantly, this system increases stiffness, rigidity under braking and load, and reduces the risk of incorrect installation and disk brake rub.
The adjustable rocker dropouts are available as a free replacement when buying a new frame kit, or available separately.
10 x 135 QR with IS brake mount – for internal gear hubs or QR rear hubs.
12 x 142 thru axle with IS brake mount – the standard choice for thru axle hubs like our Omnium Wheels.
Please note, all forks will be 15×100 thru axle regardless of dropout choice.
