I now have a new cargobox on my Bullitt cargobike. Photos on Flickr.
It is from Convoy cargobikes and is made of Aluminium with a waterproof lid and good lock.
Mine is the first from them with a side opening lid. The key advantage is that in 5 seconds, with no tools, I can undo the gas strut. Then the box lid can open all the way and hang alongside the box. This means that if I happen to buy too much shopping for the lid to close it is no problem, it can just stick out of the open top.
Obviously I need something to stop the fully open lid banging around. I am wondering if old inner tubes might be the best for this.
I also plan to line the inside with either foam or rubber so that things I am carrying don’t bang around – just using a rug at the moment.
I am very pleased with this!
