CETMA cargo bikes are manufactured entirely by hand in the USA. All welding, assembly, and shipping happen under one small roof in Eugene, Oregon. CETMA bikes are fully assembled and tested at CETMA headquarters prior to shipping.

Complete CETMA cargo bikes include fenders, an uncoated wood passenger box, bench, and seat belts for two passengers. All bikes have disc brakes, puncture-resistant Schwalbe Marathon tires, and FSA Metropolis parts. The frames are built with Co-Motion eccentric bottom brackets so you may use an internally-geared hub or external derailer. CETMA cargo bikes generally fit riders between 5' and 6'5".

Some basic assembly is required upon receipt. Bikes are generally ride-ready in less than an hour and require no special mechanical expertise to put together. 

CETMA frames can be purchased alone here: http://cetmacargo.com/products/frameset

Choose your frame color, gearing, and lighting preference. Requests for custom mods are accommodated when possible.

Belt-drives, rear racks, and rain canopies are available. Request these via email at lane@cetmacargo.com.

color choicesThere are many color choices available. Pick a few favorites from THIS CHART. When your frame is nearly finished fabricating and ready to powder-coat, I'll get in touch to discuss the best color options.

 Design Features:

CETMA cargo bike, bi-partible frame for shipping, travel, and storage.
Bipartible frames

All CETMA bikes separate in the middle for shipping, storage, or travel. The frames can be parted in a few minutes with simple tools. This feature makes them easy to fit in a car for travel. CETMA bikes are shipped this way.

The open cargo area allows for a variety of uses. CETMA bikes can be used as a flat-bed for over-sized cargo, or any container can be plugged in. Attachment points on the frame make it easy.

 Why a CETMA Cargo bike?
