Any bicycle can be made into a cargo-hauler - install 1 carry rack, 1 pair of large panniers and a front basket. You'd be surprised what you can manage to haul around.

I've been wondering the same thing myself. Hire a ute? Walk it there? I'll figure it out when (if) the time comes.

I can pick up the Bullitt and carry it up/down a flight of stairs single-handed - it's difficult, but not impossible. So it's not such an enormous thing that transporting it somewhere is a major hassle.

What is the nature of the incapacitation? My usual response would be to walk it to the nearest train station, catch the train and then walk it to a mechanic.

Or to make friends with an enthusiast, and get them to come visit and help you out with it. Some would probably do it just for the opportunity to ride it around and discuss how you find it as a practical machine.

Once when I was riding home from Balmain the chain broke on the Cabby. I had to walk the bike from Annandale to Cheeky Transport. Dave at Cheeky did the repair with my boy asleep in the bike the whole time.
I keep a substantial repair kit under the bench seat: pump, multi-tool, spanner,knife, spare tubes,patch kit, pen, cable ties, tape, small torch and a few other bits and pieces.

This is a Batavus "PERSONAL" delivery bike. It's black, has one speed, a coaster brake, a kick stand, chain case, racks, and a dynamo lighting system. I discovered it in the basement of the Smith and Butler boutique in Carrol Gardens last October.

I am selling this bicycle because my therapist suggested I need to come to terms with my attraction to african-american women. No sister is going to date a 34 year old systems administrator riding a european grocery bike. However, when I would cruise slowly down Park Slope's fifth avenue, panties would literally fly off of every white or asian woman with a stroller and a master's degree.

I live in Williamsburg now and the bike confuses most of the women here. If I grow my moustache out a little and explain it only has one speed "like a fixie" I can sometimes get to second base. But for the most part I might as well have a soul patch and collect classic cameras. If you want to get some action I'd only take this baby out south of Atlantic Avenue.

Spring is coming and if you like flat-assed waspy moms who went to Vassar, this is the ride you need.

$300 O.B.O.

Here's a video showcasing cargo bikes in Copenhagen. For some reason the embed code isn't working, so you'll have to click the link. If you're interested in cargo bikes it's worth it...

Lately I've been getting lots of inquiries about the cargo bike from people on the street, in parks and at parties, so I've added a few links to the homepage for this group. If anyone wants to add/correct/clarify anything please let me know.
