Cycles Maximus Ltd is a new company, based in Bath UK, and gearing up to be a manufacturer of pedal-powered rickshaws (or pedicabs) and cargo trikes.
The original design was released around 2000 and manufactured until 2007. This design was and still is considered to be the 'Rolls Royce' of rickshaws and hundreds were sold and exported.
With Tom Nesbitt, the original designer, this new venture is backed by a new management team. With an even better chassis and new design features, Cycles Maximus is set to launch in early 2013.
The pedal-powered and electrically assisted trike offers environmentally sound, quiet and fast people and cargo transport and the applications are virtually limitless. For example, film and television are latching onto the benefits. Eddie Izzard, on his epic multiple-marathon run, was filmed from the back of a Cycles Maximus.
The market is moving into a new phase as towns and cities across the world are actively seeking low impact and low emission vehicles for urban freight traffic. The original Cycles Maximus is being used extensively in the US, notably in New York and in Portland, Oregon as 'last mile' delivery vehicles. Likewise, Europe is waking up to the possibilities of this approach.
Cycles Maximus are committed to manufacturing in the Bath area, providing local employment. We are building links with local businesses as well as global businesses.
