Things That Can Be Carried On A Bike (A Best Of)

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have had to to drive this week and have not used a bike much...probably the least I've ridden in years. So it goes without saying that I am missing it...and thus for this reason I'm posting some of my favorites from the past year (some have been posted previously). From a selfish point it is a sort of therapy for me...pedaling vicariously through photos.

Thought you might enjoy these. Serious cargo biking.

Great photos Joe! It's amazing how much you are able to carry on your cargo bike. When the bike is empty, it doesn't look like there is a lot of space to hold a lot, but these photos illustrate how much can actually be carried!

Jeff, thanks for the link..the photos are awesome...makes me feel like a wimp!

Joe said...

James, thanks...I love this bike and it's obvious I love carrying stuff on it. I get a great sense of accomplishment...and I love the look on people's faces when they see firsthand what a bike is capable of. BTW, have you seen a blue Mundo cruising around Toronto? The blue one in the photos is my first one (v1)...I sold it to a guy in TO last spring.

I haven't seen your Mundo in Toronto yet - but there are a lot of bikes here, so perhaps I just didn't notice it. I'll keep an eye out for it going forward. Was it blue as well when you sold it? How much did you sell it for? I'm thinking about getting something similar.

James, Yes it was blue when I sold it (original color). I sold it because I upgraded from a v1 to a v3. I sold that one for $600 (new it was just shy of $1000). If you're looking for a reasonably priced cargo bike with a great ride I highly recommend them. The v3 goes for about $1100. It would be great in Toronto...granting you have some place to store it. The bike weighs about 60lbs and is nearly 7ft long. I walk mine up my porch on a plank and park it in my parlor :)

Thanks Mark...Awesome photos yourself. Do you mind if I post a couple of them (with a link to the source).
