Do you want to build a modular bike? take inspiration!

Unfortunately the project is not open source (“The XYZ CARGOs are released under this Creative Commons license: CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) but is a really cool implementation on top of te Open Source system XYZ SPACEFRAMES VEHICLES initiated by N55  (www.n55.dk ):

The XYZ CARGO TRIKE and the XYZ CARGO BIKE are based on the innovative Open Source system XYZ SPACEFRAMES VEHICLES initiated by N55  (www.n55.dk )

The XYZ CARGO TRIKE and the XYZ CARGO BIKE has been developed as environmentally and socially sustainable products for sale and no construction drawings are available.

    Hi there.

    Im a bit confused by this article :) The bikes are made by Till Wolfer a German designer that works whit N55.

    I think that it should be understood in the way that the the design plans are released under a CC, which are the only way in Denmark/Germany to allow others to share and modify the >design plans<. In Denmark/Germany you can not patent a bike design unless it is radical new. Whit out being a lawyer I would say that neither the bike and system used to build are old well known designs/technologies.

    I found in my studies that when it comes to open sources hardware produced in Denmark, the product is often more a way to communicate, than entangled in legal rights.(This can of course be different from product domain – I have only investigated open source 3D printers, after 2005)

    The purpose of XYZ Open City is also more of an artistic/philosophical, i think. The bike and the constructions are displayed at art museums and when I have been to there exhibitions they talk about new ways of making (societies). I can send you the press release, If you would like that. Regards Lina Bergstrøm, Sociologist from Denmark
