    Cargo Bike

    Its pretty sweet! Special thanks to www.Bikeworksabq.com for the awesome deal!

    Sun Atlas

    56lbs and a 400 pound load capacity for taking home chicks from the bar. Its whats called a cargo bike by some long tail by others. The rear rack is just a steel plank with a milkcrate for now. A company named xtracycle designed an open source rack that this bike and surly use so there are lots of upgrades you can get for it. I'm eye-ing the big side bags each side can hold 100 pounds of junk. Also I'm gonna get some running boards to hold more junk and give passengers a place to rest their feet.



    Its a family bike, the kids love it. Its a little unsettling that they call it my "cool" bike.

    I went grocery shopping with it, but didn't get more then any one with a backpack could have carried. I still need to buy bags for it. but mostly its cool to turn a chore into something enjoyable for me and the kids.

    The rack has lots of spots for the various add-ons but perhaps the coolest is the quick release mount that lets you tow a bike or bob trailer

    Misc BS :

    It has a 48 spoke 35mm rear wheel with a 14mm through axle Its fuking punk rock.

    21 speed twist shift with a "mega range" cassette 34tooth old school

    Its also got some bmx style handle bars



    The ride is nice and smooth. Its a big Cadillac bike. Kid of a shame the steerer tube is so long ive got a fox36 160mm fork calling the new big bikes name



    Give me room when you see me in the foot hills cause loaded up I need about a 1/4 mile to stop

    She might not care of they made breakfast I see the 400 lb limit as a challenge. I cant see anyone being able to move that much **** or even needing to. Once i get my bags im gonna take it to home depot and buy concrete and a new mail box and see how that goes.

    For now I do have a cooler that will fit on it

    Cooler? That's definitely Bando approved. Plus lots of money making opportunities. Sell soda and burritos at the trail work days and on the Bosque trails. Pay for the bike in no time.
