    I had a friend with a Madsen, and on my own CETMA, I find that the 20" wheel makes little difference except that it goes through bearings about twice as fast as the 26". The 20" rear wheel gives you...

    I find that the dummy is sportier, like a mountain bike and the Mundo is more like a city bike. I have ridden a Yuba with an (total 250lbs) adult and a child on the back, and it was very...

    I have some of the sks ones, and they work really well on any bike that they fit on. I also have some from Velo Orange that work well and look classic.

    I didn't get my cargo bike because it was safer than a rack, I got it because I can carry a few hundred pounds of stuff in addition to the kids. Also, the cargo bike is much more stable to ride - my...

    I have been using Schwalbe big apples. They last about 5000km on a Cetma cargo bike. Schwalbe marathons last even longer, but don't ride as nicely.

    I have ridden both, and there is no question that the Yuba is a much better experience for the rider. The Yuba is faster, lighter and handles better loaded and unloaded. The Madsen is a better...

    It is still cheaper than even the cheapest car. I was surprised at how affordable they were back when I got mine.

    This is a fairly common problem with narrow rims and wide tires. 50 mm tires will work much better with a wider rim, 25c or larger. I would go with one of the 29er MTB rims.

    Much as I love my Cetma cargo bike, it is larger than the average bike rack space and so even though I have no trouble parking mine, it does not meet your criteria. I would look seriously at the...

    I have a Burley Piccolo, and it would be my choice in your situation. I would not confuse it with other brands. I used to own a Trail-a-Bike, and I would not want to use one again.

    The tag-along is a Burley Piccolo, which mounts to a special rack. The older Moose rack was steel, while the new one is aluminum. I have the steel one since I have had my Piccolo for about 6 years....

    The Linus Mixte is one of my favourite riding bikes, but the Boda Boda can carry a lot more stuff and is probably more versatile.
