    Yep, totally impossible on a Big Dummy. Pretty impressive to see someone doing it at all on any sort of cargobike though!

    the vid shows maneuverability
    while its not impossible to get the front wheel of the BD up a curb
    its impossible to loft it high enough to clear a ledge, as if you'd encounter while riding off road.

    instead, its kind of the smash and bash approach.
    in that regard, the Ute has me impressed.

    as well as the Calfe bamboo cargo bike.

    its a note worthy testament to the question, "how long is too long?"
    which always brings me to another question, "what is too much versatility?"
    (do you really want to limit your choice in gear inch range?)

    I saw a Ute for the first time at my LBS last week. I was very impressed. Didn't feel near as heavy as I thought it would...

    Na, I think if someone was talented enough to do it on a Ute, they could probably do it on the right Big Dummy. Load up enough weight behind the rear axle (what were those black things on the Ute? [ya, I know they were the panniers, but did they have anything in them]) and you could compensate for the extra length of the bike.

    I've never been able to ride a wheelie, but with a 5yo I'm going to need to learn ... though maybe will have to wait for him to teach me, so I won't be the one proving it is possible.
