    I've never tried a Circe Cycle, so I can't say it if it works in practice, but I like the idea.

    I wonder if that could be used to change an Adam's Trail-a-Bike into a long-tail platform. If not, I wonder if modification would be feasible...

I think his set up was well over 100 pounds. I remember one of his plastic containers had written on it "one less RV."

    thats the guy.

    my buddies started to call him my "Hobo Dad"
    taking note of my rambling ways.

    Bill is one cool guy.
    I wish I were were in Monterey, and I wonder how he is doing.
    I'm sure he could use a buck, not that he'd ask

    Does this count as a cargo bike? We'll call these the 'Before' pics. It's about to get a restomod. Besides getting cleaned up, I am putting a hitch on the back for a bike trailer, as well as a heavy duty rear cargo rack.

    I would like to see some real world trailer pics. Looking for a lightweight trailer that is easy to attach and detach. Studio pictures are not that useful.

    You will find scores of real-world trailer pictures at Bike Forums, here.

    Just about any child trailer can be converted to a light-weight cargo trailer with moderate carrying ability. And, on most you can replace the hitch with the Burley hitch set up (Burley round bar or square bar + the forged hitch).

    I dig what everyone is doing with the cargo bikes, especially the home builders. It makes me excited for my CETMA build.

    Quick question, anyone figure out a economical way to store your cargo bike? I'm just now recognizing how painful it'll be to drag a 9' long bike up and down out of the basement... Gettting a bike locker would be cool, but I don't think there are any long enough.

    Yes, a Mundo v4.
    Comfortable, shifts are easy and positive, decent brakes. Most of my riding is on a lime-rock grade, long wheelbase smooths the ride. Don't notice the weight as long as I keep the spin rate up, could be an everyday utility ride. No heavy hauling yet...

    That has simply gorgeous lines of a cargo bike. I like they did a new design vs the extra/surly route.

    Poor elderly woman with a Workcycle

    I live here in Boston & on the train saw a woman with a Workcycles trike. She had a VERY cheesy side pull brake on the front and a roller brake that wasn't EVEN CONNECTED She was going to a bike shop to replace the axle anyhow and I told her she had one of the best brakes for that bike you could get and it wasn't connected. I have a small welding and machine shop here and if anyone is building cargo bikes or trikes, let me know, I can do some fabrication.

    Yuba Mundo v.1.1

    Here's some pic's of my 1st generation Yuba Mundo... I paid $300 used, from a Chico State College Student, two years ago.

    The day I took this photo, I was hauling lunch for two, and beer, for the Bunny and I. 20mile ride from Shasta Dam to the Sundial Bridge, along the Shasta Dam Rail Trail to the Sacramento River Trail...great ride!

    Wrap around with more holes in it

    I had to trim off the front most sections by a couple inches because my heels were hitting and I added some more holes for tie down points. It turns out they are perfect for hauling my daughters bike. The "Back Porch" is a good picnic table too. Wrap around decks are going to be the latest trend, I just know it. Wrap around decks will be a cargo bike status symbol, The bigger the deck the cooler the person!!!!! Soon 5ft wide decks made of 1inch plywood will be common. Some Wrap Arounds will get caster wheels on the corners for "emergency side landings."
