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!

one of these.


it is the same as the ones used by the Bike Couriers of Sydney.
this one is a White and Green BikeWise version .

the Child seat is a very special Turkish Saddle bag style cushion wrapped in an old cycle jersey.
My son fell off 2 times in the past and now even if I skid sideways he is ROCK SOLID on it. He loves a bit of a JUMP too.

We ride on paths and roads. People stare and say "ohhh , ahhhh, weeee" I take him to school on it most mornings and sometimes with my 2 year old in a backpack (designed for such task) as well.

My son (Axel) loves the Truck Bike. it is great for strength work too.

+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!
