    Cool idea. You can exercise the brain as well figuring out the physics in order to load the materials and get them back in one piece. I was considering getting a kiddie carrier and modifying it for groceries since there are 2 king soopers and 1 safeway within about 1 mile of my house...may still do that...

    What Walter didn't mention is that he has a revoked license for multiple DUI's. :P

    The company that makes those trailers (Bikes at Work in Ames IA) use them to collect recycling and deliver the campus paper every day at ISU as well as misc hauling work. I've seen them carry around 500 lbs easy...Pretty sweet small company!

    Easy on the DUI statement...

    Greg can drive just fine (I'm guessing that you were just joking - but he's a good friend so I needed to clear the air...) ... his license is in good standing and he's got a truck that he uses when he absolutely has to... but he also realizes that he doesn't need to drive all the time - particularly when it involves trips to the local lumber yard. He is passionate about sustainability and lives and walks the talk more than anyone else that I know.

    He rides a Don McLung (#5) single speed 29er (rigid) and is an amazing guy!

    stevereeneo, yeah, I was just joking. I don't know Greg, but I do know that what he's doing is impressive. Very cool of him.

    I think this is very cool but I'd want some very serious brakes when hauling a washing machine or a load of cement. I can't tell for sure but it looks like he's using rim brakes.

    HA! Funny, Greg just sent me this story on email yesterday. He is definitely walking the walk. If you want to build a straw bail in lower Chaffe County, Greg is the guy to see, plus he also does workshops. www.thestrawbalecottage.com That trailer is a pretty serious piece of equipment.

    Of course with the way the economy is going, we might all be pulling trailers with bicycles before too long, which isn't that bad of a thing IMO

    PS: Someone mentioned brakes. Unless he has bought another bike recently (he doesn't use his Mclung bike for the trailer) he uses an old stumpjumper with regular rim brakes to haul the trailer.
