Merced – CARGO BIKE
LOAD IT ALL UP!
The supermarket, the dogs, the kids, the girlfriend, the boyfriend, the mother-in-law, the backpacks, the work stuff…. Everyone carries something different, but we all carry something. With the Merced, you can carry a lot, and stay in shape.
If you order and want it delivered in our workshop in Mexico City, 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.

The Merced’s drivetrain is similar to that of a mountain bike: 34D front single chainring, which in conjunction with the 11/40 (8-speed) or 11/46 (10-speed) cassette allows you to have enough torque for heavy loads and climbs. Plus the riser handlebars are up to 70cm wide allowing you to maintain control of the Merced at all times. To complement the front and back 160mm mechanical or hydraulic disc brake rotos make this bike a great ally to work with, especially if you’re thinking of adding it to your bike messenger fleet.
It effortlessly transports heavy loads, bulky cargo and even people. The Merced handles like a normal bicycle but long. If you move within the city, this bike, besides being fun, is very practical.
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.
Finish it Yourself
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.
Find the videos on our channel YouTube BAMBOOCYCLES, don’t forget to follow us and press on the notifications bell.
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.
The riding position of the Merced is active – sporty. The 20inch front wheel makes it practical for riding in the city. The box is part of the bike’s frame and is available in 6 different sizes.
|C||175 – 190||175 – 190||175 – 190|
|J||75 – 90||75 – 90||75 – 90|
