This is why...



You should never, never ask me to pick out colors for you.

Blue bike. Purple-ish bin. Hideous. I'm almost proud of how ugly it is...

Obviously this bike is rideable. Has it already been discussed elsewhere in your blog as to what types of mistakes would render this bike unrideable? Is fork rake crucial? I have a decent understanding of how bikes are inherently stable, is that stability on a much more slippery slope on a cargo bike?

Well clearly the solution is a custom color matched bin. That blue is nice BTW.

Mike -

Not sure I understand your question.

Matt - next time, black cargo bike. Goes with everything. Worst part is I can't decide whether I should cover the existing bin with stickers or not...

Walt,
yeah, sorry about that. that was a poorly thought out question typed on my phone. Let me try again: I am shocked at how easy these bikes are to ride, how well they handle. Hell, maybe I don't have a question, mostly I am just amazed at how well bikes like this ride.
Mike
p.s. you probably already knew this, but, bikes are cool!

Senor Walt,

I wish I could just build you a wood storage bin and then ship it to you. That would clear up your claimed 'issues'.
