took a steel mountain bike tandem bike, chopped off the rear seat. welded on a box frame with wings. i wanted to be able to carry long boxes and heavy loads. this bike has far exceeded my my expectations. carrying ladders, a recliner chair, a car motor and towed a small boat. it is stable at speeds and has carried up to about 400lbs. thank god for the granny gear going up hills where i live.
in the pic you can see me going to a cx race taking the race bike.
as much as i have enjoyed this bike in the last year, it is too long and big to store. even though i built it so i can balance it on its end and park it straight up. i am going to build a surly orge with a one wheel trailer. it will be limited carrying heavy or long loads, but will suit my storage needs better.
this cargo bike is going on craigslist this week. i am sure it will sell fast as i always get offers to buy it when i ride.
