... bicycle helmet laws are bad for my health - & yours too!
I enjoy your blog and the cargo bike looks terrific but one thing really frustrates me. Why do cyclists who do the bulk of their cycling as transport or commuting have such a gripe with cyclists primarily using their bikes for recreation or sport. I have cargo, road, mountain and other bikes and this segregation of the various users is derogatory. Hacking on the Lycra brigade is lame. For your cause you should be trying to be more inclusive. As for components try, the lighter weight components that actually make a cargo bike viable in Sydney due to weight reduction come from the Lycra brigade originally so you probably want to be happy about that.Yours SincerelyPeter
