Bicicapace bikes are designed in Italy. The Italians have a natural eye for style and that shows through in the beautiful design of the Bicicapace range of bikes. The range and combination of colours simply adds even further style!
Bicicapace use really high quality products on their bikes and we are very familiar with them here. Brakes, Gearing, Dynamos, Lighting and Tyres all come from respected manufacturers such as Sturmey Archer, Shimano, Axa, and Schwalbe respectively.
There are three bikes in the Bicicapace range; the Classic, Justlong and Sport. Production began with the Classic and has recently evolved into the nippy Sport models and the load carrying Justlong. The bikes fulfill a variety of needs and uses from general errands such as shopping on the Classic to fast commuting on the Sport models or busy school runs with upto 3 children on the Justlong.
The jewel in the crown of the Bicicapace is the voluminous front bag. It opens (and looks like) a Pelican beak but can carry large and heavy loads (upto 30kg). This bag can be fitted on all the models of Bicicapace bikes. Alternatively a flat bed front carrier can be fitted which will carry loads upto 50kg!
On all models it is possible to fit certain brands of front child seat. It is also possible to fit a rear pannier rack on the Sport and Classic models. When you remember that huge front bag that can carry 30kg you really can use the Classic and Sport models like you would a family car. How many bikes do you know that can carry a weeks shopping and two children?!
For those with large and busy familes, the Bicicapace Justlong can accomodate two rear child seats and one front child seat. These along with the massive front carrying capcity make the Justlong a true car replacement.
The wide range of frame and bag colour and gearing combinations mean that we can not hold every variation of Bicicapace in stock. We do hold a small number of popular variants in stock here in the UK if you are eager to get riding your Bicicapace straight away. However if we don't have your desired colour/gearing choice in stock we can usually have it here in about 2 weeks. If in doubt - just ask!
We normally deliver your Bicicapace by courier. This means it will arrive in a fairly large box. Some final assembly will be involed such as pedals. handlebars etc. If you feel daunted by that then we recommend having the final assembly completed by a qualified bicycle mechanic. Alternatively, by prior arrangement and at extra cost, we can deliver your bike 100% ready to ride at a date and time window of your choice - please email us if this interests you.
Yep, you can try the Bicicapace Classic and Justlong before you buy. If you'd like to arrange a test ride here at Practical Cycles, please do contact us. There's no charge for test rides and no pressure or obligation to buy.
