Re: [rootsradicals] Re: How You Can Help Xtracycle Succeed
- Yes and No. The "need" for the truck stems from frequent trips to
Home Depot for lumber, screws, plumbing parts etc. Most of my tools
stay on site at work, but the ability to haul a 10-20 pound toolbox
on the "X" was a definite sales point. Two weeks ago I had to fetch
600 pounds of dry concrete mix from the store: I'd like to tell you
I used the bike, but I'd be lying :-)
The X has freed me from the need to schlep 4000 pounds of gas burning
steel and plastic around when my purchases fit in one or two bags.
