    Jeff Motch: On Jan 17th we're planning a farmers market bike haul. meet at tiger in the morning, ride to Sunday farmers market (Hillcrest) to purchase a ton of fruit and veg of out restaurants, bike to Panama 66 for a delivery, bike to B.L.A.H for a delivery, bike to

Typically we fill up the bed of a pick up every Sunday and deliver the goods to Panama 66, Blind Lady Ale House and Tiger!Tiger!. This week we're rolling cargo bikes instead. Join us at T!T! for a 9am roll out, maybe a quick stop at Nomad for fuel and then off to market. We'll shop for all sorts of fruits and veg with Chef Norbert and then make the deliveries.

    We'll have a couple cargo bikes courtesty of Jim Baross Jr and are encouraging others to join us for the ride to do their own shopping or just get a little exercise and some snacks.

    ROUGH ROUTE: http://bit.ly/1Zl9e5I (Oh, Google!)
    START: Tiger!Tiger! 9am
    FIRST LEG: 30th to Adams to Park to Market

    Super fun time. Hopefully another one happens before too long!

    p.s. we were joined by a parent (emmey) with two boys that was selling a red step-through mountainbike off of CL that they had added an Xtracycle free radical kit and Yepp car-seat + big kid handlebars to the back. The bike + whole kit was on sale on CL this week for $700. Looked good in person and successfully hauled 2 kids to the farmers market with us for the spur of the moment ride for them. It isn't current on CL but may get re-posted soon if you are looking for an xtracycle purchase!

    p.p.s xtracycle pads + deck is for sale now on CL (not mine): http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/bop/5398513304.html

    It looks like this guy selling the Triobike Mono bakefiet is still trying since last summer. Below is the block quote from original October 2015 posting:

    Triobike Mono bakfiets

    I'm selling our family's Triobike Mono bakfiets, which we custom ordered from Copenhagen, Denmark in November 2013, for over $4000. This is a modern bakfiets which has won many Dutch design awards. It is also the lightest bakfiets in the world. There are many cheap Chinese bakfiets knock-offs on Craigslist, but this is a true Dutch bakfiets, made to the highest Danish standards. It has a plush padded seat with 5 point safety harness seatbelts, a rain-cover/sunshade that can be popped up or down on a moment's notice, and an 8 speed internal geared hub for a very low maintenance bike. Perfect for getting around flat places (like Coronado) or add an electric motor for a couple hundred dollars and you, your kids, and your groceries can fly up any hill with ease. Cost over $4000 new; selling for $2500.

    From a friend in Germany:

    In Hamburg they experiment with gratis neighborhood transport bicycles. They can be booked for up to three days and are gratis.
    They are stationed at local bike shops, which maintain them and manage the reservations. There is this short clip from Hamburg tv.

    http://www.ndr.de/fernsehen/sendungen/hamburg_journal/Alternative-zum-Auto-Klara-das-Lastenrad,hamj44012.html

    The bike is called Klara. It can carry up to 100 kilogramms.






    It is part of a joint 40 city feasibility study project with ESA (European Space Agency). They track the bikes´ routes on the ground and come forward with a heat map of the best itineraries for bikers. The transport bikes of the post office and courier services are supposed to run for up to 20.000 miles per annum - they too are part of the project.

    Not mine, but someone in Encinitas is selling an "XXL" size Yuba Mundo fully ready for the family and cargo bike lifestyle. $500 is an absolute steal.

    =========
    http://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/bik/5448176741.html

    This bike is a beast. Steel frame. Can carry pretty much anything.
    I used to haul my wife and kid and beach gear to the beach. Great for the farners market. There s always parking in the bike rack.
    Has a fair bit of beach rust, needs to be gone over and tuned up by a pro.
    It is fun to ride.
    Comes with one large cargo bag. There are so many awesome add-ons now available for this bike.======

    North County Family Bicycles will be bringing a couple of 2014-2015 Xtracycle Edgerunners at the Velodrome Swap meet on Sunday April 17.

    Published on Mar 6, 2016

    This is a 2+ year review of the 2014-model Xtracycle Edgerunner 27D long-tail cargo bicycle in the urban environment of New York City. In my usage it has been mostly a grocery bike and sometimes a snow bike, while I have intentions on using it also as a business bike (i.e. home-care therapist, etc.).

    Not mine, but looks like a good deal on long tail cargo bike. This is a relatively light / fast cargo bike that makes a very good commuter, grocery getter and gym/court/park transporter. With 700c wheels and disc brakes, the Kona Ute might make a nice 650b conversion (wheel swap with 27.5 MTB?), especially for shorter riders. I have a similar design (Surly Big Dummy) bike that I have used for commuting and found it very versatile. The stability of the long wheel base becomes apparent on fast descents at night and the gearing allows for steep and patient climbing. Currently I use my long tail bike for errands and night rides.

    This was post NUMBER 1 on this thread...

    Velo Cult:post photos of your Cargo bikes and talk about them. ask questions about them here too.

    im a big fan of these as these are what REALLY get people out of cars. i can't tell you how many times i've been to the store or farmers market and been surrounded by curious people that never knew you can do evreyday things like shopping on a bike. my Xtracycle has been the best solution for not driving my truck that i've ever used. i ride it all the time.

    here's some Xtracycles. this first one is mine




    Sky Boyer, Velocult, had this Xtracycle sold it to a friend after he got his Surly Big Dummy.

    The owner is selling this Xtracycle in City Heights.

    Xtracycle with Trek 7500 - $500 (City Heights)
    http://sandiego.craigslist.org/csd/bik/5594671241.html
    Hello all. I am selling a Trek hybrid multitrack 7500. It's American made and simply awesome street cruiser. It has the Xtracye attachment for cargo, 2nd passenger, kids, groceries, you decide. This was the Velo Cult bike shop owner personal ride. Priced to sell.. Bring 500.00 it's yours

  11.  
    After the farmers market, I stopped by the lumber store to get more 8 ft lumber (two 2x6, two 2x4, and four 2x2). We're adding another modular section to our garden coop. Lumber front ends were strapped to integrated front rack of the Cycle Trucks ‪#‎cargobike‬. To widen the loading capacity, I strapped two 2x2s to support the load to the frame.



    Two 30 inch wide 2x2s were used for the wide support. Each side had 8 ft lumber: one 2x6, one 2x4, and two 2x2(s)
  12.  
    Sharing the Cargobike love at Bike The Bay. I was stationed at the Loews Coronado hotel and Silver Strand as a course monitor. That was a lot of fun and we got to climb up the bridge before everybody. They need course monitors to ensure intersections are incident free. come out next time and volunteer as a course monitor and give good vibes



  13.  
    Getting ready to sell this MEDIUM size Big Dummy. Let me know if you are interested. My wife and I are content with the SMALL size Big Dummy.

  14.  
    Somewhere along Morley Field on our way to SD Velodrome swapmeet. Yes, this is the cargobike for sale


  15.  
    My co-worker Brian who lives in Ocean Beach is now a proud owner of a Surly Big Dummy. Say hello to him if you see him hauling stuff around town.
