    I'm 23 and I find those pretty amazing. Is that more of an older person type thing?

    They're like tanks! :p

    Older person type like... 20+!!! Damn, I'm old too!

    Someone give me a ride off a cliff!

    Still very nice bikes though! :p

    Edit: What is the maximum weight for those BD's?

    Nice shot, Mojoe! If it were me, being a wuss, I might retract the blade :-)

    It's an oversize (31.8mm) adjustable 1-1/8" stem, mated to a cut down carbon fiber bar w/ a 28.6->25.4 stem shim. The kids like it. :-)

    The stem is a Ritchey model in 120mm length (I think), but there are other brands with the same setup. The adjustable angle allows me to set it at zero degrees to make the setup straight.

    I like my cargo bikes with some oomph and this one will haul the load and the loadee quite nicely.

    Found these guys in the country today. They were eyeballing my brooks saddle, probably because it's leather.

    MabMan, that is an awesome looking bike-truck that you have there. Is it homemade? The bed looks really functional, although I would be tempted to design and build a tailgate for it.

    heres mine, i got sick of pulling around my bob so i built this.
    its all straight up 4130, i still need to build a center stand and i need to set up panniers and mount, you'd think there would be more then enough room up top but the bars hit if loaded to high.
    it will get a coat of paint sometime this spring.

    Yes, garage made. It is codenamed the "Bicycle Utility Motorised Vehicle"

    The bed was a concept that while it works, it doesn't work as well as being able to carry the heaviest part of the load at or below axle level stability wise, but it will still haul a pretty good freight. I dragged a 20' 16" culvert up a pretty steep dirt road with the bike awhile back that totally freaked out my buddy who said it could never be done. A few bungies and a stretch cargo net has negated the need for a tail gate of any kind. The best thing about this bike perhaps is that it uses alot of recycled parts and pieces and cost less than a Big Dummy frame to achieve. :thumbsup:

    Very cool carrion cycles. That front brake needs a bigger rotor though cause that one looks woefully insufficient ;)
