FWOD United Sistercat Race Only a Week Away!

sistercat flier

Kween Kargo is proud to be a sponsor of the FWOD United Sistercat race!

FWOD (for women only, duh) is a trans-national group of female/femme identified/GNC cyclists who ride weekly in their respective cities to create safe spaces for us in our communities. Founded in Oakland, FWOD first pollinated over to the east coast in Brooklyn and in 2016 FWOD Chicago has been founded. It’s time for us all to ride together! Three races, three cities, tons of prizes, and lots of lovely lady cyclists.

All skill levels are welcome! See you in the streets!

Stay Tuned for the Opening of Kween Kargo Bike Shop, the New Home of Brooklyn Cargo

We are excited to announce that Chris and I are in the process of moving our shop from our loft to our new storefront space! In less than a month your friendly neighborhood bike doctors and cargo specialists will be located in Greenpoint at 259 Kent Street. We will have a soft-opening sometime between May 15th and May 20th (we’ll be sure to announce!), and a hard opening as of June 1st.  We are so grateful for our friends, customers, and community. We set out in this venture with a few express goals and principals;

  1. Fewer cars in North Brooklyn.
  2. Affordable bicycle maintenance in facilitation of a car-less lifestyle.
  3. Worker empowerment for couriers, and praxis of alternative workplace structures.
  4. Safe shop spaces for female and other non-male riders.

With you’re help we are well on the road, opening a street level garage where we can keep the dream alive. We hope Kween Kargo will be come more than just your average bike shop, and invite you to come along with us. More news soon! Stay Tuned!

 

Ride Safe,

Camille Raneem, Owner and Manager

Springy ’87 12 spd Peugeot Cruiser (18in)

This fun little frame came into my possession earlier this week and came straight back to life within a few hours. We replaced the break & gear cables with some classic white, upgraded the saddle & pedals with some fresh parts. Threw on some classic 27″ tires, and finished her off with some new chrome shorty fenders. A real good look, if I do say so myself. Great commuter and with the right tires she’ll keep trucking all season. Peep the listing here, a steal at $175!
