I measured my old Microbike and it is slightly bigger than the Carryme.
Unfortunately for me the Carry me is just too small. It looks very certain
that my knee will hit my hands or the handles when I make turns and
even when I go stright forward.
I adjusted my Microbike to be as close to a Carryme in height of handlebar
but mine is still some two inches taller from ground up. So my hands will get
in the way when my knee is at it's most high position on the Carryme while
they are just enough clearance riding at theMicrobike.
Unfortunately that one has not wheels to replace the old aging plastic
which become brittle with age and usage. Like plastic boats the plastic
catch plastic fever when more than 15 years old . the bike was built
when I told the designer about it he said he wouldn't risk his health
riding on it. So I do it on my own risk. The kevlar belt is supposed to
end up dead sooner or later too being so old and they are half width
of standard so one need a very good saw to make two usable ones
out of the standard kevlar belt sold in shops.
So sooner or later me need to find something that is as good as
I could try to put the saddle as far back as possible but then most likely
I would make a wheely sorry if spelling is not correct.
the frame of the Carryme is made for shorter people than me.
So could I really build a longer version of the Carryme maybe.
For some 250 Brittish Pounds or some 575 USD?
I 'm so clumsy when it comes to mechanics. Carryme as a model
seems to be the best design I've come upon. Weight only 8 kg.
Foot print around 10" to 12" or so. That is what I like about it.
What I don't like is that it has too small wheels. But it helps with
making the footprint small.
The alternative solution would be to build a trolly, trolley cart
when it is folded. such are allowed in foodstores. Bikes are not.
The trolley mostly have two wheels in parallel and that is ideal
from a handling point of view. One fasten the basket for shopping
between these wheels and that is a conveniant way to do shopping.
One only have to come up with a practical design that allow it to happen.
JZ88 seems to have that in mind. http://www.jz88.com/
