I don't own a cargo-specific bicycle, but you'd be surprised at what I've managed to haul in my panniers, strapped to the top of my rear rack or piled into my front basket.

Oh, I forgot! I DO own an old Australia-post bicycle. The old type with the porteur style front rack. The frame is too small for me, so it is for sale if anyone is interested.

Hey Lisa, when you get your Bullet we must have a race, complete with passengers. How old is your little one?

I've been riding my Yuba Mundo around the lower north shore. It gets some looks but it's great for shopping and hauling kids.

Hey Yogi, what are you riding?

The other night I went out with the Missus (riding her foldie) and Action Baby (in the Cabby). For reasons to complex to be explained here I ended up leaving the baby with her but taking her bike with me. I got a few strange looks on the way home!

+1 for strength training.
I rode the Cabby exclusively for the first six months I had it, then when I got back on the singlespeed I was amazed at how much more strength and endurance I had in the legs!

So is this the first cello carried on a cargo bike in Oz?

Without a doubt our Cargobike is the best way to shop at nearby markets. Here we are on our fortnightly run to the North Sydney market.

Rode the Bullitt over the Harbour Bridge today, but it was a hassle getting down the steps as the bottom of the Bullitt gets stuck on on the ramps where they transition from angled to flat at every landing. Had to lift up the back wheel to get over each transition - tricky while going down with the other hand on the brake, and really hard going up supporting the weight of the bike.

Here's my spectacularly detailed diagram to illustrate the problem:

Have you thought about installing sacrificial wood or plastic skids to the underside of the frame? There is some sort of ultra-high density plastic that you can cut a couple of strips and glue to the underside of the box and the frame members that will allow you to slide it over these bumps without damaging the bicycle itself.
