Went to drop something off to ted on my day off today and he showed me the cargo bike hes been working on. A bit of bob jackson here a bit of brian rourke there, a few reynolds chainstays and a healthy amount of plain gauge 4130 make this beast strong enough to carry 3 drunken friends home. I rohloff hub makes it reliable and easy to ride. and hydraulic discs mean youll stop no matter what the load.
