It has been a summer of great championships in the bike messenger world. We have had the Nordic Championships, the European Championships and the World Championships all in the Baltic area. And we are delighted to call our friends champions. Omnium founder Jimmi ‘Jumbo’ Bargisen won both the Nordic and World Championships and ByExpressen rider Allan Shaw won the European Championships. We must have a party! thanks to all the extremely hardworking people who gave their all to organising these volunteer run events.
Recently we have been informed that several scam e-mails have been sent from something that looks like our email accounts using our staff’s names and our logo. We are investigating this but please know that we will never change bank account or ask you to suddenly transfer an amount to a new account. We will also not ask you to submit your bank details again. So we kindly ask you to delete these kind of mails and if in doubt, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Jimmi ‘Jumbo’ Bargisen
We know you want to carry your kids on the Omnium, we know you are quite happy to tie them down with string or just get them to ‘hold on tight!’, but really, wouldn’t it be better to have a strong safe and secure seat – like the market leader the Yepp Maxi – and have a metal mount that was specifically designed for the Omnium Cargo?
Yes. It would. Good design and engineering takes a little time, but we are there and the new seat bracket is out now.
The bracket is CNC waterjet cut from 6mm aluminium and easily fitted under the rack with 4 bolts supplied. The seat is removable in under 20 seconds with a locking mount that is part of the Yepp Maxi’s standard equipment. Using an extender bar (from our webshop) means you can still carry a small elephant at the front – probably.
Buy a complete seat kit with the Yepp Maxi EasyFit chair and the mounting plate or just buy the mounting plate and source your own Yepp Maxi EasyFit seat.

As a result of our drive to make the absolute best messenger cargo bike on the planet – lighter, faster, and more agile than the competition, we now offer a full custom consulting service. In collaboration with our design and manufacturing team we can provide pedal vehicles with custom paint, racks, bags, boxes, graphic design, Shimano STEPs Electric System and even complete custom frame design. All made in our own production chain and shipped worldwide. From a single bike to a national fleet that fits the image and unique needs of your business – we can do it. No compromise.
We can also provide educational and consultancy support for business studies and manufacturing. Book a seminar and learn about how a successful bike business gets started and how it works in the real world – from it’s founder. Please get in touch to start the conversation.
We know you want to carry your kids on the Omnium, we know you are quite happy to tie them down with string or just get them to ‘hold on tight!’, but really, wouldn’t it be better to have a strong safe and secure seat – like the market leader the Yepp Maxi – and have a metal mount that was specifically designed for the Omnium Cargo and Mini-Max?
Yes. It would. Good design and engineering takes a little time, but we are nearly there and have prototypes ready which we would put our own kids in. Soon we have ones we can sell. Are you interested? Drop us a mail.
The final product will be waterjet cut from aluminium and easily fitted under the rack. The seat is removable in 30 seconds with a locking mount that is part of the Yepp Maxi’s standard equipment. Using an extender bar (from our webshop) means you can still carry a small elephant at the front – probably. We will try to figure out a quick fitting cover for the hole left in the cargo area when the seat is off. Yepp also make a rain cape that means that no weather will get on your little angels. Our model refused to put his feet into the foot holders on camera, but was keen when unobserved. The final mount will probably move the seat around 40mm further toward the pilot.
We are now taking pre-orders for the new Omnium Cargo Electric with integrated Shimano STEPS 8000 power unit. The STEPS 8000 is by far the best system for an electric bike – we tested a lot of options and we are certain this is going to be the Omnium Cargo that will take you to the very TOP of the hill. Please email for prices and delivery times. We are looking at creating STEPS 8000 versions of all our Cargo models so if you need a Mini or Mini-Max with extra kick then tell us.
