I literally found this frame on the side of the road. I'd never heard of a Schwinn, don't worry, it didn't suffer much pain, well, maybe a bit!

All sorts of techniques got employed to get the right length and configuration.

Hi Guys,

Just wanted to let you know we have a rare opportunity. New Nihola bike, assembled and pick up Sydney for 10% discount. Available just before Christmas. Let me know if you'd like to have this Christmas present!

I am so pleased to find this group...  This is our current set up - two kids in a trailer (and my husband who is only just learning to ride (shocking I know)

My nearly four year old is already too big for the trailer (according to the line marked inside) We also have a cycle tow from him but as I mostly ride by myself if I use the cycle tow I have no where for our 18 month old to sit. 

So I've been researching and I love the idea of having a freeradical or edge runner from Xtracycle to seat both kids at the back of me (the younger one in a seat). 

Im having difficulty finding a supplier of edgerunner style long tail bikes in Sydney or someone with experience riding with kids so I can ask all my questions. Is there anyone out there with two kids they carry on a long tail?

Does anyone know if its possible to hire a bakfiets in the Manly/Brookvale area. I'm going to start picking up my girlfriend's kids every Wednesday arvo from school in Brookvale. Would love to do in a bakfiets rather then renting a GoGet.

Hi Marty, closest I know of is the bike library at marikvile (I think).

Comment by Martyn P on November 11, 2014 at 3:23pm

Thanks Jon. What a great idea. Would love to see this elsewhere in the city. Might rent the Cabby for a weekend to see what I think!
