    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 ?

    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.

    I love what you did with your cargo bike....I have been looking around for a frame, but I never heard of a Banjo. Where are those available through? I noticed you had a Big Dummy before. Do you like this frame better? The BD was the best thing that I have come across so far.

    Also interested in your opinion of your StokeMonkey and fat tire set up. I live in a hilly area of Southern Caif and I need some torque.

    I believe the StokeMonkey is not in production right now. What would be your other options for an electric assist.


    Any and all the help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you all very much!

    I got the Frame set from Banjo Cycles in Madison WI, he is really busy with other builds so he may say no or it will take awhile. Like 2 years. He does an awesome job though, his craftsmanship and attention to detail is great.

    Is it better than the BD, yes and no. Yes, because it rolls over anything and looks BA! No, I loved my BD (I had a freeradical on a kona lava dome frame and got tired of tightening bolts all the time) The BD is very versatile and solid. I used it to haul lumber all the time using a jones H bar.

    The main reason I built this bike (The MooseCaboose) is I wanted to put 2 of my most fav bikes together, the Pug and BD.

    I fought hard about the Stokemonkey before I bought it. After consulting others that commute with them I realized this motor just makes commuting and cargo hauling more viable here in the hills of northern GA.

    I would say wait for the stoke monkey or get a motor for the front wheel. If you get one for the back most the hubs I found are free hub and thats not good if your carrying heavy loads (300lbs a lot) you will be replacing axles alot.

    His site seams to redirect to this Flickr: Banjo Cycles' Photostream
    It is Aaron and my bike.

    I sourced the battery 3 years ago from Ebikekit, since then the battery I have is no longer available. I was told the containers need special clearance and hazmat codes have changed so it's hard to get them in the country. I also read the lithium phos battery's are unstable. In a year I guess I will have to find a replacement but the Stokemonky is very versitatile in its connection so I can easily get a battery made.

    wow, saddle up! that thing's a wild animal!

    So it looks like you're ready to carry enough stuff for a multi-day expedition without even calling upon the true powers of your bd.

    Do you take it camping as it is pictured, without any of the xtracycle accessories that would allow you to pick up more along the way?

    Custom bags or stuff you've made work?

    yojimbo, that thing's redonkulous! and a half-link chain to boot.

    How does the trailer work with heavier (>40lbs) loads? I would imagine it might bob as you pedal and the long arm attached to the basket flexes. My trailer that attaches to the axle on the left side has this problem; terrible for standing and pedaling.

    Yojimbo, very nice lookin bike. Where do you live?

    One thing I noticed, it appears that the front basket is supported ONLY from the brake studs... is that correct? If so, it REALLY needs another support from the lower part of the fork out to the front part of the basket, to form a triangle. Otherwise it's begging to bend/break something.

    The trailer works really well. It works better when attached to the seatpost, but I must attach to the basket when I know I'm going to do a big shopping.

    I have a child trailer that also attaches to the axle. Riding with the Travoy is easier than with the child trailer, even when standing.

    I fixed that white plastic reinforcement to the basket, so it flexes not so much.

    Hi!

    I live in Spain.

    The front basket is supported from brake studs and a reinforcement from upper part of the fork (there is no pegs for the rack in the fork). This front rack is 5 kilos max load. I put inside front basket only the lighter goods, like salads, bread and so.

    But I'm waiting a new front rack, the Sherpa from Old Man Mountain wich attachs to brake studs and the QR axle.

    ^ haha, that's about half the reason I ordered a Big Dummy. My 3 year old has a 12" bike and he's not on training wheels anymore but he only likes to ride for, like, 0.8 miles. So we shall go on a longer ride on the BD, deploy the satellite bike, and then when it's time to go home load him up again, that way I get my longer ride and he gets his shorter ride.
