Copenhagen-based Larry vs Harry bicycle builders of the Bullitt cargo bike have a new Irish dealer, the Rathmines-based ThinkBike. The news comes in the same month as Dutch child-carrying and cargo bike brand Workcycles got its first Irish dealer.

This is reader-funded journalism, but it needs more support -- our target is 20 more subscribers by the end of August... can you help? Subscribe today.

On their Facebook page, Thinkbike said:

“Thinkbike are proud to announce we are now stocking Bullitt bikes. The possibilities with these bikes are endless. Watch this space.”

The company also said on Facebook that they have the bike in stock and they have a demo model for test rides.

Models of the Bullitt listed on thinkbike.ie range in price from €2,283 for the Classic to €2,606 for the Clockwork.

The Bullitt can be spotted around Dublin City Centre used by couriers and it is also used by Munchies for food deliveries.

Hello Reader... IrishCycle.com is a reader-funded journalism publication. Effectively it's an online newspaper covering news and analyses of cycling and related issues, including cycle route designs, legal changes, and pollical and cultural issues.

There are examples, big and small, which show that the reader-funded or listener-funding model can work to support journalism -- from the Dublin Inquirer and The Guardian to many podcasts. To make it work for IrishCycle.com, it just needs enough people like you to believe!

Monthly subscriptions will give IrishCycle.com's journalism a dependable base of support. But please don't take free access for granted. Last year IrishCycle.com had an average of 15,800 readers per month and we know our readers include people who cycle and those who don't, politicians, officials and campaigners.

I know only a small percentage of readers will see the value of keeping this open enough to subscribe, that's the reality of the reader-funded model. But more support is needed to keep this show on the road.

The funding drive was started in November 2021 and, as of the start of June 2022, 250 readers have kindly become monthly subscribers -- thank you very much to all that have!

But currently, it's only around 1.6% of readers who subscribe. So, if you can, please join them and subscribe today via ko-fi.com/irishcycle/tiers

    • Thanks for that — fixed now.

      I had spotted the error earlier and thought I had fixed it but I guess the update failed — so thanks for pointing that out!

  1. I tried them out at the Irish Cargo Bike Championship in the Phoenix Park last year and also this year and they are great ,fast and light very zippy. The Steering is a bit light when empty but no hardship you get used to it very quickly. I would love one if I had the money,great for carrying stuff.
