How about a bike trailer? Unhook it at a store and walk right in, fill it with groceries, walk out, hook it up, ride away. How you ignore the " STOP - THEIF " is your perogative..........

yeah was thinking of that.

me sitting inside. Maybe with a hole in the cart base for my legs.
Then a subframe with a bike wheel and crank, that could be lifted off the ground
So when I get to shop I could let it rest on the wobbly little wheels.

Its a small cart so wouldnt be much room for me and stuff.
And the town shops are 5 miles away.
So the bike would have to be sturdy and not too tiring to ride.
Some hills between to go over

Go back to school, learn to spell, and maybe someday you will be able to afford to put a Zipp on your recumbent. With spelling like that, you are either 9 years old or seriously impaired.
I'm guessing the second option. Forget about that Zipp wheel dude..........

The Zipp is on the bike for time trials only.

I don't know about the performance of such things, but cosmetically, it goes great with the bike.
