    That was a lame attempt at getting my 6yo twins on the bike.
    I since have made another contraption with bar ends that works much better.

    I have the rear wheel dished to the non drive side & the cassette & bottom bracket spaced out to the drive side, so it only rubs when using 1st & 2nd gear, it works with all the others fine. I will be working on some more drivetrain mods soon.

    This was my first true outing with hauling something on the cargo bike. About 10 minutes later I was hit by an SUV in the shopping center parking lot where my bike shop is located. I was carrying the Cross Check in to get a wheel trued.....now it needs some touch up paint. .......and she didn't even stop!!!!!

    Hey neighbor! You may remember me. I'm the one who made the video of last year's Capitol Cargo Cruise on New Years Eve. The ride started at Edible Pedal, and riders used cargo bikes and regular bikes to transport food to the Sacramento Food Bank.

    I used my Gomier trike to transport my new Bike Friday Pocket Companion home from Edible Pedal when I bought it almost a year ago. This is the same trike I used during the Cargo Cruise.

    G1 Ute...

    Picked this guy up today on the local C-List...



    I sold my Xtracycle kit earlier this year to fund another build and I have missed it. Found this guy today and brought it home. Glad to be back in the cargo game!

    Yeah, I was nervous that it was going to be purchased when I was checking with my wife about buying the bike. She gave me crap about buying another cargo bike, since I sold my last one. Luckily she supports my bicycle habit, to an extent...

    Our Yuba



    You can see part of the reason we have a cargo bike.
    Due to my wife's health issues, she has to wear a medical boot almost full-time and doesn't have the ability to pedal her own bike.
    This is how we go out to dinner, go to the microbreweries, church, or just out for an afternoon ride. Since we picked up the Yuba this summer, we've logged over 400 miles. 98% of those with my wife in the co-pilot seat. It helps me stay somewhat fit

    We are having a blast with this bike.

    Thanks longhaultrucker.

    They really are great bikes (I mean cargo bikes in general) and every ride just makes me grin and think about new ideas or upgrades I want to do.

    You are very welcome,my friend.

    I love mine too (Xtracycle on a TREK I bought a dozen years ago),and watching Riding The Spine's website and vids on Youtuber gives me wet dreams of more and more usage of mine (BTW,love my AWESOME wife too,even though she's a non-rider )

    The geo on my old Trek whe combined with the bars I borrowed off of my Bandersnatch were killer on the riding position/neck (especially with mine perminently damaged),I needed a shorter ETT legnth and more upright riding position. Got that over the weekend. Doesn't look as "sporty/mtbikey" anymore,but it's much more comfy on my old spinal injuries now. Looking forward to getting some mileage on it in the coming days. Apologies for the pic quality,it's getting dark earlier now,thanks to the time change,and the shed/shop/cave/dawg house doesn't have the best lighting towards that half-and yes,that is a 3-4 person tent set up in there,complete with pads and sleeping bag...one never knows when Mama will put him in the dawg house





    I wanna build another longtail next year-keep this one city-street friendly and comfy,and build one more singletrack-camping worthy

    Thanks,my friend They're already growing on me (maybe I should see a doc? ). I'm not so vain...I just had grand visions of fat knobby tires slinging dirt and mud,and it seems that the farther this ol Trek evolves,the more it looks more street friendy,LOL! Of course...I could always build another,more mtn friendly longtail next year...what was the answer to that n + 1 question again?

    I have since gotten rid of the Bionx kit. It was fun for awhile but not really for me. I will be getting some 65mm rims soon.

    Nice mountain Ute

    Anomaly: Are you running 29er tires on the ute? I was looking at a coworkers ute and was thinking you could just about fit the 29x3 krampus tires in the back, then just get another fork and have a "Kramute" The knard measures 3in on a 50mm rim and I think the Ute has 3in. clearance so if you ran it on a more narrow rim it might just fit.Name:  krampus.jpg

    hmmm I have a krampus and a yuba. I might have to try this out to see if it works! Big fat rabbit hole rims are definitely the way to go if you're trying for a 29er cargo bike. I laced mine 3 cross and cross laced, which has been extremely stiff and durable so far.

    I'm running the stock 700X4Xs. It could easily fit a reasonable 29er tire stock.

    One out of twenty tries I end up riding it out about half a block. I typically can only hold it for about 20' though.

    better.

    beer bottle shim, high-rise stem and cruiser bar cut down with silicone grips for my little man.
    No straps holding him on yet, but he's happy as it is. Just can NOT ride if he's tired!

    Just got mine together. Started with a new Frameset and built it up using some parts bin items and some new stuff.

    20" frame
    MTX31 rims Hope Pro2 front, Alfine 8 rear hub
    2.5 hookworms (Yes I already turned the front tire around so the logos are all on the same side...)
    Surly open bar
    BB7 brakes
    RaceFace Evolve crankset

    Pretty happy with it it's my first IGH so getting used to that still, it is QUIET. Running 36 x 22 gearing right now and its great for in town hauling.
