As soon as we found out our offer had been accepted on the house in Vashon I realized that the Packster wasn’t going to work for commuting due to the limitations of the water taxi (I had been using it even on days I wasn’t transporting kids as a part of my commute because it…… Continue reading New bike day (with the Tern GSD)
A while back when I was putting together my first look at the Tern GSD I went to G&O and measured a whole bunch of cargo bikes.

As the…… Continue reading Bike regressions
