cargo bike update



The cargo bike went on its first test ride this morning! So far I'm pretty happy with it. I still need to build a kickstand and reinforce a couple of spots. The cranks I put on are too long and hit the ground in corners, but otherwise it rides very nice. I gave it one gear in the front and five in the rear. The brake cable is just temporary, I'll put on a longer one after its painted. I plan on test riding it for a while then it will get torn down and get a paint job, front brake, cargo box, and new cables.

  1. I am truly impressed. You wanted one so you made one. Be careful, people will notice and burn you at the stake for witchcraft.

  2. Thanks. I'm already planning my next one, I'm not sure where I'm gonna store two eight foot long bikes though.
