    Anyone ride a Rans Hammertruck?

    This is a "crank forward" longtail: Hammertruck
    I've ridden one of their other crank forwards, the Fusion, and it was a nice riding bike. You can put your feet down flat when stops without dismounting the seat, which seems like an advantage if the bike is heavily loaded. Anyone try one of these in the real world?

    Nope. I don't like sitting on the couch.

    Seems like the center of gravity is set quite a ways back compared to other cargo bikes. Even with the crank forward design, I wonder if a large, bulky load would get in the way of you legs at all?
