I think I've fallen in love with the cargo bike. I test rode a bakfiet at Clever Cycles and have been reading about them ever since. I've looked at the Long Haul by Human Powered Machines, but I need a long box and rain/weather protection like the bakfiet from Clever Cycles.
Soooo, Show me your cargo bike pictures. I like the two wheeled variety, but I'll look at all of them. I really like the ones with the box in front and positioned lower down in the frame.

This works for me.
I like the fact that having a shorter front end allows for quicker steering vs the front-cargo style bikes....

That's not bad. Is it home made? If I have to, I'll consider an extracycle, but I want my two little guys in front where I can keep an eye on them. The Longjohns are what I think will work for me. I'll have to sell my motorcycle, but I think the boys are worth it.

I haven't built the cargo racks for this one yet. It will be like an xtracycle on steroids.....
The two wheeled truck.....
The cargo bed folds up in the middle....

Great looking bikes !
(one more note about the simplicity of a rear-loading carbo bike is that the steering mechanism is greatly simplified.).
