    Moved house by bike this weekend and it was quite fun!

    Christiania boxbike (fits 4 moving boxes) ... needed 5 runs (for 18 boxes and some extra!) ... 30km or 18mi!

    Model h/box

    with a straight box!

    super cool!

    ask me anything you wanna know about the bike!

    Ha, good job! I'm envious that you've got your stuff down to only 18 boxes. How much was it to rent the bike?

    I live near New Orleans, There's a company there that will move you via bike.

    We borrowed it from a colleague who is a Masters student without a salary and a young child. They also make furniture out of EU-palettes which turn out quite nice and are cheap to make/maintain.

    I took it as easy as possible on the bike and gave him 400DKK (72USD) to take his son and wife out for a burger/drink.

    His son loves burgers

    Awesome. Double awesome on the 18 boxes. Sounds like a weekend away with my wife (just kidding, a bit).

    How does it steer? Is there articulation behind the cargo box?

    That's amazing - I rented a van to move 4.5 miles last year, would have been just 2.5 by bike.

    Are you going to get a flat-bed trailer for furniture?

    The box and handlebar and connected. It's on a pivot type system. It handles well empty and sluggish with 100kg in the front.

    Articulation?

    So the box turns separate from the seat.

    yeah, the box/steering is one set.

    which is different than the nihola where only the wheels turn.
