TAIPEI CYCLE d&i awards 2016

The Tern Cargo Node offers utility and convenience on two wheels: a full sized cargo bike that folds. It's a game changer if you live in a city or just want more portability from your cargo bike. It's designed to carry 160 kg, yet folds small enough to fit into an apartment elevator. It sports an adjustable Andros stem, so you can fine-tune your riding position on the fly. It has dynamo lighting for night riding, and wide gearing for all gradients. It fits in a taxi, and because you can bring it conveniently inside, you don't need to lock it outside overnight. It's the cargo bike designed for urban life.
