If you've got a business and want more brand visibility while engaging with your customers, the Nihola Posterbike is for you. This three-wheeled cargo bike is designed to go where advertising and activation vehicles can't, and being comfortable and safe for the ride there and back again.
The Nihola Posterbike's lightweight aluminum cylinder is placed right between both front wheels, allowing you to mount three vertical A1 vinyl posters on the outside for maximum brand visibility. The cylinder is hollow and features bottom and mid-section shelves for promotional materials storage.
Despite its size, this bike is very easy to maneuver thanks to its "tadpole" design of two front-mounted wheels not connected to the cylinder, allowing for nimble turns round corners and quick moves to avoid potholes. The upright riding position is comfortable for riders within a wide height range and the seat height is easily adjusted with a quick-release clamp. The three-wheeled design gives it a grounded surefooted feel that will make any rider feel comfortable and confident. An optional e-assist will flatten hills and help your staff get wherever they're going quickly and safely.
The Posterbike is handmade in Copenhagen from powder-coated steel for a long-lived, weatherproof finish. Supplied with maintenance-free components and durable materials throughout, the Posterbike keeps repairs to a minimum. A Shimano V-brake on the rear and Sturmey Archer Drum Brakes on the front are strong and dependable, while the brilliant Shimano Nexus 8 speed internal geared hub means no worries year-round whatever the weather. Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires complete the package with 3.5mm of puncture-proof protection.

In the nearly 20 years that have passed, we've seen an evolution of the cargo bike for use in all facets of life. The success of the Family model has expanded into proprietary models for promotional and corporate advertising, commercial delivery, mobility aids for rehab, handicap and wheelchair use and even a transport solution for your pets. Used the world over by family’s and royalty alike and with over 10,000 sold in Copenhagen alone, Nihola has become a success story like no other and still continue to push the concepts of traditional cargo bikes and lead the charge on innovating the way we move through our streets and cities.
How much can the Nihola Posterbike carry?
All Nihola trikes can carry 100kg (220lbs) plus the rider with a max weight of 100kg, for a total of 200kg.
Will this take up a lot of space on the road?
Not really, most bike lanes are 1.5 – 2 meters wide and the Nihola is only 89cm wide, leaving plenty of room for other transport users to pass.
Can I store it outside?
You sure can! The Nihola is built for perpetual outdoor storage. It’s pretty rare that someone in Denmark would have indoor storage so bikes just get parked in the street. Plus, they salt the roads just like Toronto does in winter. The frames are painted with a highly chip-resistant powder-coat, and beneath the powder-coat lies a thick rust-resistant undercoat. Of course, the gears and front brakes are internally sealed so they will keep operating no matter the weather.
What is the maintenance like?
Very low! Because the Nihola uses internal gears and internal drum brakes the intervals between tune-ups are few and far between. We recommend oil on the chain and air in the tires every three weeks. All Nihola bikes come standard with Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires; the most puncture-resistant tires on the market.
How does this compare to other trikes?
Nihola makes the lightest, most stable and best handling cargo bike on the market. While other brands steer the entire box, the Nihola’s front wheels steer independently. And, while competing brands add high-performance tilt steering, Nihola questions the practicality and safety of such systems. Finally, by using high-impact Lexan plastic rather than wood, the Nihola is up to 40% lighter competing brands, less maintenance (at some point all wood will rot) and significantly safer.
Is there an e-assist option?
Nihola does not make a mid-drive e-assist like Urban Arrow or Babboe, but it works perfectly with a Bionx system. We recommend the Bionx 350RX, it has a ton of power and it’s a breeze for us to set-up. Total cost for the switcheroo is around $2500.
What’s the rear wheel lock good for?
The rear-wheel lock is a clever design built for short in-and-out errands where finding a locking-pole may take longer than the errand. The rear-wheel lock lets you momentarily lock the bike to itself. It’s great if you need to quickly dash in and out to grab a coffee or at the park having a picnic.
This is expensive! Will it get stolen?
Estimates are that over 90% of bicycle theft is tied to cash-for-drugs and this (unfortunately) makes every bike a target. Make sure you buy a good U-lock or a chain and your bike will be safe. You can read more about bike theft here.
What’s the warranty?
Two-year warranty for manufacturer defects on frame and fork, one year on parts. Does not include wear and tear.
