    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?

    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.

    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:

    powderhound82,
    How'd make your own studed tires? It crossed my mind this year but we haven't really had too much icy weather here in Portland. I just can't bear to part with $100+ for tires I'll only use 10 days a year.

    I had some old Nevegals laying around, I'm sure most tires would work. Drill a small pilot hole through the knob from the outside, then drive a small (depends on thickness of tire)sheet metal screw into the pilot hole from inside. I put a few layers of duct tape and an old dh tube as a liner, no problems so far. I'd recommend gloves for installing the tire on the wheel, these suckas will cut ya!

    As you can tell from the pic, I am snowbound. The roads and bike path around here are usually hardpack snow with big sections of ice. These tires are on their second season and have worked like a charm. No trail riding as the snow is too deep, that's what the ski are for.

    They are the same bike, just different lighting.
    We get all our eggs from a the same local farm, as do several of our neighbors. Every so often we return everyones cartons so the farm can reuse them.
    Reuse is alway better than recycling.

    it has many 10-year old parts from a Kona i built up in the late 90s. it will be getting a new BB, cassette, chain and some nice replacement RaceFace chainrings on that ancient shimano LX crankset. One of only 2 BDs i have seen with V-brakes!

    Sort of oput of place among stretched frames, Long Johns, and the like, hope it's OK to post here.

    My classic 'economy' recycle errand/cargo/commuter bike with first load that overflowed panniers Partial load. About 60% of max:



    (Cell phone photo.)

    The 'step through' dip in the top bar's absence is really felt with a full load in back. Can't tip it and keep balance. High kick helps old man's flexibility, though!



    'Free' Taiwan built 4020 62 cm Schwinn World Sport long frame 1984. No saddle, post, stem, or bars. Bent chainwheel, fork.

    Was to be winter bike to save classic tourer. New post & bars, rest from parts on hand. Cold set rear from 126 to 130 mm and misaligned fork. Decided I wanted something for errands to save short car trips.

    Home built aluminum Porteur rack custom fit to old Thermos cooler. Wald rear rack and economy 'panniers', basket, and old cooler.

    Was 2 x 6 (9 different ratios) with home made plastic chain guard. Now 1 x 9 . Wider more even, easier to shift.

    Was 27" 1 1/8" now 700C cassette & 35 mm Michelin City tires. Better ride, more stable, more puncture resistant, and more visible (reflective walls.)

    POS original crankset had to be cut off. Spare 144 mm BCD Sugino (1972) with worn Black anodized 48/42 chain wheels was converted with NOS Sugino 42 I had, and a beat up 52 of same era detoothed and polished up for a chain guard. Classic Campy pedals with toe clips from parts bin. Brake levers will be changed out to make safer. OTB emasculation unlikely, but possible in this setup. Wheels, 1x9, fenders, front lights all added since top photo (Columbus day/Canadian Thanksgiving Turkey dinner).

    Currently, cargo conversion part about half paid for from saved vehicle use since September. About $200 in used and new parts, over half in wheels, tires and 11-34 cassette. Smooth, and a weird sort of fun to ride. Have used 42/34 and 42/11 (loaded heavy, hills & into 20-25 mph wind: air brakes), and (light load, downhill 10-15 from behind: sails). Fully loaded it's not as much of a pig as I thought it would be, load balance is a factor I haven't totally mastered. The single shifter was a really good idea to keep a tight rein. Amazed that the old Shimano took to the 11-34 like they were made for each other.

    It will get commuter duty with other rear panniers, IF I get a job close enough until I can afford a bike with discs.

    Here's a pic of my homemade Long John clone
    Howdy, I saw the Gazelles from Denmark, but they wanted 3K for them and I didn't want one 3k worth, so I took a mountain bike frame, a BMX front wheel and fork and made my own. I have a small machine shop and TIG/MIG welder. It's amazing that people walk up to me and ask why I built it. The big black box is a huge PA speaker that I drive with a car stereo and large gel cell. I just have that on there occasionally as an example of what it can carry. That weighs about 75 pounds. I am going for about a 100 pound cargo capacity. I like the load in the fron so you can keep an eye on it. I have also added a 6' kiddy bike flag to the front wheel so people see it.

    The Mundo V3 frame has a bunch of water bottle bosses for mounting accessories. I drilled some flat aluminum to fit the bosses and attached with water bottle bolts. Here is a pic:

    some nice looking bikes here. I have been slowly moving car free using my CrossCheck with front and rear racks, but still need the car for bigger loads. Was thinking about a dummy or a Ute, but the Yuba looks interesting. My only issue is it being Hi-Ten? Is it supper heavy. Also, how about the Project Rwanda bikes? I see some online here in the states? Where do you get one? I have never seen them for sale. i know thats not the point, but I really like them. TIA ~joe

    That's a Nihola (http://www.nihola.nl)
    A Nihola Family to be exact. (cost around 2300 euro)
    Some call them a cargo bike, some say a cargo trike.

    Original term is "triporteur" (French, same name for cargo trikes with engine) and Bakfiets (Dutch, meaning bike (=fiets) of the baker, they used to use this kind of bikes to sell bread)

    Most bakfietsen (plural) where originaly designed to sell stuf: milk, icecream, bread, services like shoemaking, sharpening of knifes and scissors,....

    Nowadays they are very popular for getting grocaries, bringing your children to shool.....

    Just did some updating to the Goat. Added a custom bag from Scott at The Porcelain Rocket: http://theporcelainrocket.wordpress.com/

    Great fit and construction. Would not have known about it except for Vik B' getting one for his Dummy. Give Scott a jingle if you want one. This current pattern fits an 18" Dummy frame.

    Also added Xtracycle's new Ecodeck. Heavier, but much more functional than the original Snapdeck.

    Last bits: a bottle opener from Ahearne and above it, a fun top cap from Fast Fred. You can find Fred here (and check out other styles/colors): http://www.fast-freddy.com/ ...and he takes PayPal. Caps are only $5.99.

    thats 1" copper pipe cut just a bit shy, countersunk and pressed in by hand.
    the holes made imperfectly round with a dremel tool
    the ringlets not perfect either, all scratched, and gouged on the mating sides.
    the fillings mixed in 30 min epoxy
    filets filled the gaps
    then again, all sanded down to have a smooth transition

    and about 20 coats Spar Varnish.

    this deck is about 2 years old, and I refinish it once a year.

    I really doubt that anything corrosion or wear and tear is going to occur to those ringlets.

    but you never know...

    i like the idea of stainless tho...

    nope, 26" front and rear. although it will clear a 650b wheel with a 2.3 neo moto tire on the rear.

    My ride to the Gorge in Victoria is well protected on a MUP that's sunken below the level of the rest of the stuff around it. No side wind issues at all.

    It won't work...the rear of a BD isn't the same as a typical bike the Xtracycle is designed to attach to. I have seen a BD with a trailer...that's pretty wild in itself....:eekster:

    Great fit and construction. Would not have known about it except for Vik B' getting one for his Dummy. Give Scott a jingle if you want one. This current pattern fits an 18" Dummy frame.

    Also added Xtracycle's new Ecodeck. Heavier, but much more functional than the original Snapdeck.

    Last bits: a bottle opener from Ahearne and above it, a fun top cap from Fast Fred. You can find Fred here (and check out other styles/colors): http://www.fast-freddy.com/ ...and he takes PayPal. Caps are only $5.99.


    Your rig looks great with the new frame bag...:thumbsup: Scott does great work....I'm using mine a lot...my dummy looks quite bedraggled, dirty and scratched up from all it's adventures/tours, but I'm too lazy to do anything about it...:skep: :nono:

    Perhaps for the best...with the Rohloff hidden under the freeloader bags...no bling parts and lots of dirt my BD isn't a huge thief magnet!

    BTW - sorry for dragging my feet on the centrestand.....the move to Victoria really put a kink in lots of my plans.....will be tackling that job as soon as I get the garage organized.

    This is a real nice bike (long john), I've seen them in Danmark in Odense, many many years ago, they were used to supply the shops in the pedestrain area in Odense.

    You can't. Doesn't work.

    You can, however, put one on a tandem, with a fat front end thrown in for good measure:

    It was made by the <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/26811168@N07/">Rack Lady</a>, who is half of <a href="http://www.banjobicycles.com/">Banjo Bicycles</a>. She makes some cool stuff. I really like the one on my Dummy.
