If you upgrade your bike, and build a cargo area made out of wood or steel, an armchair would actually be no big deal. The coolest cargo bikes can carry a maximum of 150 kilograms, however with so much load, biking gets really heavy. With 75 - 100 kilo grams though you are perfectly ok.
You can obviously buy such a bike, nicely made by someone else. But come on, you have 2 hands? Then you can build it yourself! If you are brave and creative, you may make your own cargo bike out of elements which were stored in your basement during last couple of centuries, waiting for their “star hour” to come. If you are brave, but feel that your creativity needs to be supported by some practical skills which are missing, you can start out with following the instructions, for example make your own “Long John”, using this link http://www.werkstatt-lastenrad.de/index.php?title=Fahrao_Bicycles_1991 .
But if you feel a need for personal communication, someone who can advise you which tools to use, where to get the materials, how to solve this or that constructing problem, there are cool people called “Werkstatt Lastenrad”. They are obviously very welcome at betahaus` Open Design City and were working there on their new “Long-André” last weekend. This Saturday they will be back and ready to show you how to make your own cargo bike and make it with you.

The new space is six stories spread out across 2800 sqm. We’ll be renovating the building with our members in mind, so here’s what we can promise:
We'll be updating The Move landing page with photos as we have them, so watch out for that!
We’ll open the doors of our new space between mid-August and mid-September 2018. We plan to begin moving in July to ensure that the space is functional and comfortable by the time you get there. Bottom line, we’ll do everything we can to make the move as seamless as possible.
The move is our third big announcement of 2018 following the news that we’re be expanding our operations with betahaus | Tirana and managing coworking for Berlin’s new blockchain space, Full Node.
The idea behind betahaus was never to be just a coworking space. We wanted to create a platform where people of our generation could thrive personally and professionally. We’ve always thought we could do this on a much bigger scale and we’re thrilled to see it happening. We’re excited about what we’re able to learn from this move, not just for betahaus, but for the future of coworking in Europe.
We’re sure you have a lot of questions about what’s coming next.
We want to hear from you! Email us at email@example.com or join us for a closed Town Hall where we’ll answer all of your questions and talk through any concerns. We’ve also started members-only page for FAQs, resources, and important dates about the move (check your inbox!).
We've got some big changes ahead of us, but one thing's for sure: we're so glad to have you with us for the ride!
We're looking forward to this new challenge, and will keep you updated along the way. Get in touch with any questions you might have about Full Node!
