I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this:
I was randomly google searching and came across a trike named Zigo:
They're talking child carrying, but as most of us who are using bicycles as utility machines know - anything safe enough to carry a 20-80lbs child is perfect for carrying everything else!
Seems like a cool idea.

I would absolutely love this if, and only if, there was a way to place the "bike part" under the buggy for storage. That way I could ride to the train, push it on the train as a stroller (no bikes allowed / bikes cost a lot to take on) and then ride to the destination. Perfect! This way, useless, as I would be too afraid to leave the bike at the station to wait for me, and can't take it on the train.
I realize the bike is too big to place on or under the stroller. If the "stroller part" worked with a regular folding bike of my choice, I would be buying this asap...

I have written to Zigo, and they tell me that a cargo module is being developed, as well as one for pets.

Do you mean "cargo model" as in carries cargo (or animals) or do you mean they are trying to figure out how the bike could travel under the pod?

Read what I said. Not 'model', 'module'. There is a difference.
What I meant was that they are developing things along the general lines of the stroller, but for cargo or pets rather than kids.

OK.. got you! Thanks! Not a native speaker here, so sometimes that makes things harder.

It like it. It looks like they've put some thought into the design, and I like that the trike converts to a mini-velo if you want. This makes the bike much more versatile.
