It is very important for us to make ourselves known and explain what our philosophy is. The TrikeGo with its characteristics was fruit of the collaboration between specific professionalism and sensibility. Had we been only interested in getting into the cargo bike sale market, we could have imported the bikes, as others do. But studying a little the history and the tradition of cyclomobility in Italy we have come to realize that there was a great cultural heredity we could use. In the 20’s and 50’s in Italy most of the goods was transported by tricycle. Why, then, not to RE-evolve it?
So, with due respect for companies in North Europe, America and Asia, that have established themselves in the market in the last 20 years, we thought it would be more suitable and profitable, also in consideration of the serious financial crisis we are going through, to involve local craftsmen and professionals who, with their skill and patience, have developed our beloved TrikeGo.
Each cargo bike gives work to five craftsmen: and we like it this way. And the craftsmen are:
Rain proof and sunshade equipment are proudly made by BagMi, an excellent local small business involved into reuse of freight lorry covers, promotional banners, inner tubes, bike tyres and coffee or potato bags.
We believe that the entirely Italian manufacturing is a very important surplus value, both for inner and foreign markets. We really have TrikeGo in high consideration. Many kinds of professional profiles actively contribute to develop our brand awareness, not just master craftsmen but graphic designer and IT and SEO/Marketing specialists working on the website as well.
Last but not least, TrikeGo is an artisanal creature which brings out a very strong human part in itself. TrikeGo is a mean of transportation which gives smiles to riders, passengers and surrounding people on the street. TrikeGo is a mean of carrying that rise from the ranks gently and wisely.
TrikeGo is a very big fan of the Zeno’s “Achilles and the Tortoise” paradox, because even if slower despite the other vehicle – it never stacking in the traffic…and if Zeno had lived in the nowadays he should have enunciated the paradox of The Car and TrikeGo...
