    Very cool Inoy!
    How do you make the long steerers? Just sleeve and weld, I suppose?

    rodar, yes sleeve and weld, though i go a bit overboard by drilling holes on the fork steerer to increase weld area. thanks for the comment!

    Very interesting inoy. Geometry is different, cranks are nearly under the handlebar. Does that work well? Is it very functional or more of just a fun oddity?

    The geometry isn`t exactly standard, but it has certainly been used by others:

    the Etta 1 and Camioncyclette were the inspiration for my pahinante. pahinanteinspiration | Flickr - Photo Sharing! i knew i would never get my hands on either so i made a mash-up of the 2.

    TroyS600, yes it is different. i can't go as fast or as far on this.

    rodar, yes crank forward designs use different muscles, here's one similar to current longtails. piyon 2 | Flickr - Photo Sharing!

    2012 Orbea Carpe H.30. Picked it up last week. Distance to work 3.5 miles. Goal is to ride it 5 days a week and mix it up on the way home with longer rides.

    Nice ride ! Big Apples ?
    Front wheel rules ! As we say here in france : "petit mais costaud !" (could be translated in "small but beefy")
    What's your Flickr ? Want to see more !

    my two inertia designs dryback panniers. The hooks fit right over the rack and I use horizontal tightly stretched bungie cords to catch the bottom hook.


    I found this bag for $20 at harbor freight. wheels help keep it on the bike, interferes with derailleur if on the right side.

    Did you ride the bike to the airport and leave it while you were away? I'd be worried about security removing it with all the precautions airports take.

    I just got to my office, towed my mtb along so I can do a group ride tonight without having to waste time going home first.

    Fixed gear cargo bike eh? No brakes...

    Looks cool i guess, kind of a bike without a purpose though, isn't it? I'd love to have it with a 2x7 drivetrain and brakes (and the racks, of course).

    That picture actually shows a coaster brake. It's a fixed gear now with a front brake.

    The purpose behind this bike was to make a travelling cargo bike that could be knocked down easily and not incur extra charges when flying. One almost exactly like it - fixed and all - was pedalled to the win in the cargo category at the messenger world championships in 2008.

    I appreciate that this isn't for everyone.

    I hope i didn't sound harsh. That's the trouble with the internet. It's more that I don't quite understand what it's for. I guess it's a specialty bike just for the fun of it. Nothing wrong with that.

    Amazing bike! the profile cranks caught my attention. I rode bmx avidly in the days that euro bb's started replacing american bb's. Profile euro bb's are rather prone to failure with their tiny bearings squeezed between the 19mm spindle and bb shell; I'm curious about how many miles you've got on yours.

    At least you likely won't have the problem of breaking the cranks. Riding street bmx on profiles is like trying to ride offroad on a calfee bamboo bike . At least they're manufactured domestically.

    Thank you, I have 400 miles on it now. I have other bikes with Profiles and the in board euros last about a year. I did replace the bearing out on my big dummy before I sold it and replace the in board euro bearings with the new outboard euro bearings Profile just came out with. The Euro outboard bearing are really nice and durable.
