If you order and want it delivered in our workshop in Mexico City or Bogotá, the bicycle will be delivered finished. If you order from any other place you will receive you Merced in a Flat Box, you will need to finish it yourself, we provide the instructions and videos over in our Youtube Channel to do this. Learn more of this following.
With this Kit you get almost* everything. You get the bamboo frame, the unassembled wooden box, the kickstand, the direction system, the bicycle components and the carbon fiber to finish weaving the box.

The BOX is container and structure for the cargbike at the same time. We manufacture it from pine plywood with the CNC router cutting process and it is perfectly assembled and then sewn with carbon fiber stamens. The box can measure 90 or 75 cm long and 44, 55 or 66 cm wide, choose the one that best suits your needs.
We have loaded it with up to 240kg (including the driver) and it was difficult to roll it, it could still be rolled, however it was difficult, so our recommendation is not to load it with more than 220kg.
The weight of the bicycle ends up being, depending on the size of the box, approximately 30kg the smallest and 40kg the largest.
As for driving, the Merced is driven like a trailer, it takes a few tries to master, but once mastered, nothing will stop you.
To avoid the high shipping costs, since the Merced is a very large bicycle, we decided to send the cargo box unarmed, leaving that part of the assembly to the end user. We prepare a list of steps and videos so that when you receive your Mercy you can finish putting it together without problems.

Another important thing that you should consider is purchasing the epoxy resin locally, due to official transportation regulations, we cannot include it in the shipment as it is considered a dangerous material.
Bamboo can withstand up to 1ton/cm2 of compression force, this is twice the tolerance of steel.Bamboo is also lighter making it ideal for bicycle construction. Other incredible quality is that it absorbs as much as x4 more vibrations than carbon fiber, making our bikes, the smoothest bicycle (ideal for long rides).Neither bamboo nor carbon fiber are subject to fatigue. Your bike can endure daily use and falls without losing its strength.It takes up to 15 years for a regular pine tree to grow, it takes bamboo as little as 3 years to reach the same level, making it a very renewable source.Naturally bamboo generates 30% more oxygen than trees, this helps break down Co2 generated by cars. It takes up to 15 years for a regular pine tree to grow, it takes bamboo as little as 3 years to reach the same level, making it a very renewable source.
+ epoxy resin, our bikes are all hand made and hand finished to perfection. This incredible material makes all the joints extremely strong yet light. Using unidirectional fibers let us design the frame’s structure, making it stronger where it needs to be.
Bamboocycles: Best Industrial design Chapter México: winner Diego Cardenas.

Nuestro cuadros de bambú absorben hasta 4 veces más vibraciones que marcos de fibra de carbono, haciéndolo las bicicletas más suaves, ideales para viajes largos.
La empresa norteamericana Microbac certificó a prueba de fatiga nuestros marcos. La prueba involucró más de 150k ciclos en 8hrs!
Si crees que el acero es resistente, el bambú es el doble en compresión. Hasta 1 ton/cm2, a diferencia del acero que solo resiste 500kg/cm2.
