Specialized Globe Live Cargo Utility bike. Very unique cargo bike, ideal for a live aboard family or narrow boat user, of simply for someone who wants to do their shopping on a bike.The bike is lovely and light, very strong and minimal in terms of maintenance. The bike has been recently fitted out with Shimano Nexus 3 speed gears (like Sturmey Archer but easy to use and look after) with a rear pedal back hub brake making it infinitely more usable than the original single speed it was, whilst still retaining the simplicity and ease of maintenance. Instead of a v-brake up front it now features Magura Marta hydraulic disc brakes, which apart from having to change pads every few thousand miles, will take pretty much zero maintenance. Also upgraded were the wheels, going from single wall to double wall alloy rims and quick release front. Fitted to these brand new rims are a set of almost puncture proof and very hard wearing Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres. All these upgrades turn this bike from a light use cargo bike to a bike you could use every day if you wanted to, carrying shopping, logs, what ever you want really.
The bike is in good condition and rides very well. It does have some marks from use and storage but still looks very smart. A lot of time and effort has gone in to making this an ultimate cargo bike. I will probably need to remove the front wheel, pedals, handlebar and possibly front rack in order to box the bike but I will do all I can to avoid doing this if I can.However these are all simple things to refit at your home.
