The story of Porteur
The Porteur bicycle was born in the post World War II era, at a time of re-building and shaping modern Europe. Especially designed to transport cargo on a platform rack attached to the fork, Porteur has been the most convenient form of dedicated utility bicycle commonly used in the world, delivering goods across cities for decades. The first Porteurs were used by the newspaper couriers of Paris, who would carry up to 50 kilograms of newspapers on the front rack. Butchers, bakeries, cafés, delis and wine-distributors soon also discovered the advantages and followed suit to accommodate the needs of contemporary city life.
