Nice B-52's ref'.

Someday, I might rebuild another cargo bike, but for now, the Burley Travoy will be pulling cargo duty behind the Fatback.

Meanwhile, good to know someone's keeping the Big...

Funny how things turn out. When I built the Goat in '08 I thought I'd found the perfect bike. And believe me, it was hard to let go of that bike a few months ago. But it helped me get back on my...

The Goat frame and forks are SOLD.

Kinda strange to say that just now. But from what I hear, the Goat, while she was mine,
inspired a few folks to build their own Dummies. Good to know.

From what I'm estimating this morning, $125 should cover the shipping on the frame and two forks. If it's higher I'll eat it. The OMM rack should ship for $30 via USPS Priority, and I think it'd be...
