We sold our Load 60 this week. With the third kid joining our family earlier this year it wasn’t quite the right bike for us anymore, even though we did still use it a fair bit. We aren’t buying another cargo bike to replace it right away. It’s not in the cards right now financially…… Continue reading Goodbye Bike Day and some thoughts on longevity of electric bikes
Even people who have never considered buying the family and cargo bikes I mostly talk about here are familiar with the idea of a child seat that sits on the back of the bike and allows you to carry a young kid with you on a standard bike (or provides support for young kids on…… Continue reading Qibbel Junior vs Yepp Junior EasyFit

Lindsey over at This Mom Bikes took a good look at how her…… Continue reading Does biking save money when you need to keep the car?
I LOVE my Packster. But nothing is perfect. Over a few thousand miles with a bike problems crop up that aren’t obvious in the first weeks or months of ownership.
