Re: [rootsradicals] Bike Moves
- The COOL thing about the X (and other long/cargo bikes) is the "Don't worry about it" factor! It is not a BIG thing here, but today I rode to work. It was chilly so I wore socks with my Lake sandals, a jacket and my usual "man purse" or "murse" as my daughter calls it (easier than sitting on my wallet and having a pocket full of crap!) call it a messenger bag if you want. In any case, my mission was to stop at the pet store after work and pick up a bag of kitty food for our two cats.
It isn't that the food was BIG or anything, but by that time, it was warm, and I ended up carrying my jacket, the cat food, the bag, my little thermos that started out full of hot tea in the morning, my insulated mug my spare shoes and a couple of other minor items in the freeloaders. what a HUGE thing for me to be able to do! No it wasn't an epic load, but it was a "No Worries" thing. If I had not had the X I would probably have ridden my motorcycle or taken the car, which would deprive my wife (if I took the car) of going to her swimming session. (she swims, I bike) since we only have ONE car now!
The X REALLY does take the place of a car. At least 75-80% of the time! maybe more!

That big trailer on the main page belongs to a friend and was welded up
