Long time, no update, but as you’ll see from this post there has been a lot going on in our lives. The Packster turned 1 year old back in May. I put ~3500 miles on the first engine (before the replacement due to the light/wiring malfunction) and had put >600 on the new engine, for…… Continue reading Bikiversary
I’ve had some interesting discussions since my cost comparison post and wanted to explore some other aspects of it. One thing I didn’t really touch on in my original post is how we funded the cargo bike purchases in the first place.

I just want to give what these numbers look like for us because it’s something that has been on our minds a lot while we made decisions about our future housing options. I think it’s pretty obvious…… Continue reading Cost comparison: e-cargo bike vs car
I first took a spin on the Tern GSD back in December. I’m not a big fan of longtails (or midtails). I love box bikes for the lower center of gravity, the ease of talking to my kids and seeing what they are doing, and how easy it is to protect them from the wind…… Continue reading First look: Tern GSD
Last week I headed over to G&O for a bike maintenance class and on the way over my headlight shut off. I didn’t think much of it. I had the headlight installed relatively recently as an upgrade from the stock headlight and there’d been an issue with it shutting off previously due to a zip…… Continue reading Metrofiets with Stokemonkey review
