Black Iron Horse - The Ox Naked Frame
Do you need a bike for transporting goods? Do you want your next bike to be steady and reliable? Do you need it to carry heavy cargo but at the same time be easy to ride at steer? And do you have specific needs for you new bike? THE OX – NAKED FRAME might be the obvious choice. The bike handles every sort of cargo transportation and can easily load 175 kg in addition to the driver – depending on the box that you want. This is the naked frame of our cargo bike – THE OX. It can be rebuilt for exactly the purpose and need that you desire. At the same time, THE OX – NAKED FRAME has the unique rear-wheel drive, which is a key feature on all bikes from BLACK IRON HORSE.
The rear-wheel drive is made for urban environments. The rear-wheel drive ensures better control than any other bicycle, since the bike can turn around its own axis. Controlling the handlebars require minimum effort, which makes it easy to control the bicycle. It ensures a stable ride, even with heavy loads.
The rear-wheel drive also ensures stability to the bicycle since the front wheels remain stable even with a heavy loaded cargo box – making the goods safe and you feeling good.
Our cargo box in aluminium is perhaps the most durable on the market. It does not rust and is very stable and impact resistant.
Sustainable DNA and advertisement
THE OX – NAKED FRAME will help strengthen your corporate sustainable DNA as all our bikes are designed, manufactured and assembled in Denmark. We get most of our materials locally and only the best can be part of our bikes. It is our priority to produce our bikes as close as possible to our customers. We want to be local. That’s why our frames, our cargo boxes and our hoods are produced in Denmark.
THE OX – NAKED FRAME will therefore act as a perfect sustainable advertising pillar for any brand with a sustainable agenda.
Safety and comfort
We will keep producing our bicycles in Denmark. Every bike has come through the workshop ensuring that everything has been tried and tested before our bikes hit the road.
Our bikes have been produced from precision steel tubes for 25 years and this is not about to change. We know that steel is solid, because the first bikes we produced in the mid-1990s are still out there making transportation easy for both families and businesses.
THE OX – NAKED FRAME comes equipped with what we believe to be the best electric motor on the market: Shimano E6100. The motor is a centermotor, which means more stability and greater power. The motor is manufactured in Japan, but here we have chosen to compromise on our commitment to sourcing local parts. We have done this for one reason only. Because we believe that the Shimano e-bike system – from the motor, to the gears, to the brakes – are the best solution.
The Shimano system has three settings determining how much the motor is gonna help the driver. The motor delivers 60NM and we guarantee it will give you a fantastic cycling experience. Everything is controlled from the display, where you are able to track speed, gears, and the reach of the battery.
The electronic gears are linked to the motor, and switching gears is easy thanks to the small buttons next to the handle. And to make everything super simple, the bike will automatically switch to first gear when it comes to a full stop.
THE OX – NAKED FRAME is delivered with two integrated front lights and one rear light. All lights are linked directly to the Shimano system, and are easily switched on with the click of a button. The front lights deliver 20 lux and are manufactured by Axa. This makes them able to reach as much as 40 metres ahead, and visible at a distance of up to 2500 metres. The rear light, manufactured by Busch & Müller, is discreetly installed in the end of the upper tube. It is the smallest rear light approved for use in traffic, and contrary to its limited size has an impressive reach.
