    Soma gettin' into the cargo game!

    In my cursory scanning of the form I didn't see anything about these guys, but thought you folks might be interested. Soma Fab mentioned on the blog that they've got a new baker's make in the chute for 2012, and a short wheelbase linkage front loader bouncing around in their prototype zone!

    Baker's Bike: S O M A f e e d: Introducing the Soma Tradesman Cargo Frameset

    Personally, I built a baker's bike out of an older broken soma mtn. frame and love it! I don't know how the geometry compares, but the production bike would have to be stronger, lighter and better designed than my garage job; all things that make me want one! I've also spent some time on high platform linkage bike and loved it, so perhaps I just love cargo bikes, or perhaps they really are some pretty sweet designs that folks can get behind.

    Anybody else excited about the cargo bike world expansion?
