That’s right : Shanghai’s got a new ‘ best bike ‘ in town thanks to the one and only Chris Trees. If you didn’t see the post from Chinese New Year, which included photos of the original framework for the amazing tricycle, then check those out HERE.
The frame is custom designed by Chris Trees himself (an engineer from England), and was hand built here in Shanghai. The body work was also designed by Chris, and hand crafted out of the finest bamboo China has to offer.
The tricycle features 4 disc brakes, 8 gears, and can hold 2 regular sized people – or maybe 3 smaller people. There’s a windshield, a removable canopy, and the bike passed it’s rain test with flying colours. Chris also plans on building a cargo version, so stay tuned for that.
Expect to see more news on this amazing tricycle soon, as Chris is slowly taking the next step to push this design into full factory production. So if this interests you at all, contact us and we can put two and two together. For now enjoy these photos I took while we were out test driving the trike on Saturday !
