These are the steps for kids to climb into the box.

There is just one thing I don’t understand about the kr8: what is the reason for the small two-inch rectangular cut out from the bottom of the boxes’ side panels? You can see it at the bottom midpoint of the box in the pictures at the top of this page.

The modified Bobike seat is for kids from about nine months, after they’ve outgrown the Maxi-Cosi or equivalent baby cot in the box. In our experience the old type Bobike seat is by far the best for this application. Other seats are bulkier or less handy to mount. We’ve got lots (too many actually) of them at WorkCycles and happy to make a nice deal on one. alternatively you can make your own toddler support seat. It’s only function is to give a semi-boneless little one some extra sitting support. You could thus make a similar seat from fabric, foam, wood, plastic, carbon fiber or unobtanium.

I need to fit an infant seat and only option available is a new bobike mini seat. Do the newer models of this seat fit once modified and leave room for another little one on the bench? Thanks Maurice

Very well thought out & executed.

Let’s keep it authentic ;-).

Comment on Overview: WorkCycles Fr8 Transport Bikes by henry http://www.bakfiets-en-meer.nl/workcycles-faqs-overviews/overview-fr8-transport-bikes/comment-page-3/#comment-1744156 Fri, 21 Apr 2017 08:32:47 +0000 http://www.bakfiets-en-meer.nl/?page_id=647#comment-1744156 Hi Ronan,
Congrats! Good question; We’ve never actually weighed a Fr8 V8 so I’ll have to guess that it’d be roughly 6kg more than a regular Fr8. That’d put it at about 32kg.

We’ve no direct experience with bike carriers for cars but the topic has been discussed in the @WorkCycles Facebook group a couple times. You should be able to search for the threads.

Good luck and enjoy your Fr8 V8!

I’ve just ordered a Fr8 V8 for my wife in Ireland! I’m really looking forward to it arriving.
I also have a Qwik N7.1.
I’m currently looking at rack options for my car.
Can you advise on the weight of the V8 (with city carrier and rear carrier).
The Witter racks seem to be a good option here, but they state a maximum weight per bike… so I’m not sure.
Thanks

We gebruiken de Bobike 1118 voetsteunen. Die zijn prima dingen en echt niet kapot te krijgen. Ik heb drie stellen op mijn eigen Fr8 (één vóór en twee achter) en ben heel blij dat ze opklapbaar zijn. Anders zou ik met mijn kuiten en schenen regelmatig tegenlopen.

Ik ken geen vaste voetsteunen maar mocht je toch je eigen willen maken zou het niet moeilijk zijn. Je kunt bij voorbeeld korte stukken 20mm buizen met lange M8 bouten (bouten + draadeind met verlengmoeren) doorheen vastschroeven. Skateboard grip tape erop en klaar.
