Socrates® cargo bike – an innovative platform for hauling and branding.

Riffing on the form of classic cycle truck, the Socrates cargo bike is built for hauling. Socrates has a frame mounted front carrier and a smaller 20" front wheel for carrying a load in a super-stable and an irresistibly eye-catching form. Feel free to call it so-crates. Feel free to call it what you like, but this fellow can haul.

And you certainly can’t miss him when he rides by. Why not say something as you whizzzz on by. Socrates is ripe and ready for branding with sign mounts inside the frame. Use one of our standard signs or make your own. Or get in touch for something a little more personal as personalization is the point. You can rock our standard tote and carrier, or ask us about our DIY front carrier. We don’t know what you’ll attach. We don’t know how you’ll use it. But that’s the point. It’s a rolling platform for your innovation.

We're astounded by how our customers use our bikes. We encourage you to use your imagination. And we'll make it.

Socrates is a unique ride, perfect for events and promotions. A practical sidekick for bringing the goods, Socrates also gets just enough stares to keep it fun and to keep everyone smiling.

about republic bike

Just like the people who ride them, bikes come in all shapes and sizes.  Generally, they're designed for utility:  a go fast, down the mountain, get to work or cruise the town tool. Unfortunately, they usually look about as snappy as a tool too.  At Republic Bike, we decided to shake up familiar aesthetic conceits and expectations of what a bike should look like.  In fact, we decided to leave it up to you. The only tools we offer here are those to let your creativity go for a ride. You pick, choose, swap and decide, and we'll build it, box it, and ship it out. It's a bike we design and build together.  It's built by us & you.
