    Hampton, Virginia

    As most of you know my area was hit with a Tornado recently. Well, this happened the night before the annual Blackbeard Festival was scheduled to start. So, the next morning, I headed down with ""THE BEAST"" to offer my services in any way that I could. Well, due to the immense outpouring of help I was turned away as they had, quite literally, hundreds of people there to help. Amazing to see it happen. I do have numerous photos posted on my personal Facebook page of some of the damage and also on the Cargo Cyclist group there as well.

    Anyway, as I was heading out I happened to run into the man that plays the Blackbeard character every year. This is the same man that's featured in the History Channel shows about Pirates. We chatted a bit and he told me that since I was flying the "Skull and Crossbones" that, technically, ""THE BEAST"" belonged to him and his Pirates. All in good fun of course. Here's the photo of the attempted ""Pillaging of THE BEAST""........

    Hi LHT.... thanks.. I built the trailer to haul a washing machine or furniture or maybe a small refrigerator... I also thought someone in a wheelchair could ride in it... its low and stable... and having the front wheel really helps for handling .. this thing is so maneuverable.. i got this idea after seeing our local trash scavenger guy.. he had made something similar and it worked so good I thought why not? someone had asked how the front end works.. well its just a bmx for turned backwards and the tongue is a piece of tube in the stem where the handlebars lived.. here's a pic of how I got the idea.



    also here's a pic of my big trike

    I agree.. I have tried xtrastyle long bikes with rider up front... I prefer having the cargo up front and my weight on the rear... but diff strokes for diff folks

    New to the party, and haven't had time to do any big customizing of a mostly-box-stock BD:



    When I somehow stranded bikes at work (wife drove out to pick me up for dinner date or whatever), I took a trailer with me the next day to haul it home:



    Another time, similar circumstances:



    A friend reports that Louisville, Kentucky has more Bikes at Work trailers in use than Portland, Oregon. I assume that there are other brands represented in Portland, along with perhaps more cargo bikes without trailers, but I think there are eight or more of the Bikes at Work trailers in town. Here are two, image taken during a bike move a year or two ago:

    What drive train do you have on that rig? If your IGH doesn't have some range, I hope your area is pretty flat!

    Oh, yeah. And, as an until-recently bike shop guy, I used to make a living on that evolution from stock.

    I got to looking a few minutes ago, pondering what I HAVE done to the BD. It has run-of-the-mill add-ons, like a set of Planet Bike fenders and a cyclometer (the better to quantify how much fun I have with this bike). Less common, but still within range of "normal," are things like the quick-release seat post collar (so that my wife can ride the bike once in a while), the Brooks B67 saddle (springs for "lap of luxury" comfort!), the Surly Open Bar handlebar, and the Ergon GP1-L grips. The Origin 8 faux-Carradice bag will provide storage for bungees and on-road tool kit. I've ordered the Bikes at Work hitch (there is one to fit the Big Dummy), so that I may pull my . I'll soon get the Xtracycle Wide Loaders as well.

    Bullitt

    Building a new cargo bike. It is a Bullitt from Copenhagen. Hopefully finished in the next week, parts and time allowing. I'll upload pictures when I have enough posts.

    Yeah, the Bikes at Work hitch arrived!

    Here's a closer view of the cockpit, with the Salsa Open Bar, Ergon grips, and cyclometer (Sigma 1609--would have been fine with the 1009, but this one was in stock):
