    My friend who is a radio producer puts on a radio-themed, live variety show every few months, with readings, musical performances, and the like. Most recently, she did a show around the concept...

    I have a standard configuration Yuba, and I love it. I want to address some things raised by other folks:

    1. It is one-size-fits-all, but I'm 6'5" and it's totally fine with the 500mm seat post...

    It's not a guilt trip she lays on me, it's a common sense trip. I'd be ruined without her, and the fact that she approves of this workshop-for-Yuba trade tells me that it really was a good idea!

    Yeah. We have two cars, but the second one is a beater truck that cost $1200 and gets about 20 miles a month, so it's pretty much a wash. Plus, as I remind my wife, I don't have time in my life to go...
  5. How to get your spouse not to object to your spending more $$$ on bikes

    My wife, bless her heart, has had to put up with my bike-obsession for many many years, and I expect she is keeping a running tally of all the money I've spent on various projects, which she'll bring...

    I have a Worksman SUD front-loader trike, upgraded with a 3-speed coaster brake rear wheel, and I rode it all through Hartford, Conn.'s rather snowy winter this year. You can't get more stability...

    I can vouch for the Worksman front loaders - I have an S.U.D., and I swapped out the metal box for a grocery cart (without the bottom part and the wheels). It is not winning any races, but with a...

    Grocery run yesterday with my two boys. I never thought I'd need panniers on a frontloader cargo trike, but when you add a 3-year-old and a 6-year-old, it gets...

    No offense taken! Take note: shopping carts in their natural form have small, hard rubber, swiveling wheels. This is the boxy part of a shopping cart mounted on leaf springs and twenty-inch bicycle...

    Here's my beast, a Worksman Cycles Super Utility Delivery trike, with the customary heavy metal box replaced by a shopping cart. I've been commuting four miles each way on this for about a month,...
  11. Honing my maneuvering skills on a Worksman frontloader trike

    I have a somewhat modified Worksman front-loader trike, which I love, but which is, obviously, not great for maneuverability: It tends to tip on sharp turns. Given that I can rarely get it moving...

    I had long coveted a Worksman Cycles front loader or some other bakfiets-type mobile for carting my two boys (3 and 6) around the neighborhood and doing grocery runs, but the cost was prohibitive....

    The ride was great! The weather couldn't have been better, I had two friends with me, and we lazed our way across the state. Here's my bloggy postmortem on the voyage, and here's my buddy Chris's...
  14. Hartford, CT - Dudley, MA: Route Recommendations?

    My buddy and I are going to ride from Hartford to Dudley, Mass., on Saturday for the bike swap meet there. Right now our plan is to follow the Google Maps walking route, but I'd love to know if...

    It would be cool if you left the frame then bent a seatpost in such a way as to accommodate for the bent seat tube. I mean, if we're talking about quixotic bike-fixing missions and all . . .

    I am 6'5", 200 lbs, and have a Xootr Swift and it is no problem - I can get full leg extension, and after some playing around with different stems and bars, I found a comfortable way to put my arms....

    Live in W. Hartford, work three or four days a week in Bridgeport, the rest in Hartford. For a while I had no car, so I would ride my folder (either my Xootr swift or my Raleigh Twenty) to Union...

    See how you feel. I had a wisdom tooth that was impacted and infected, and it was a pretty hellatious bit of cutting and yanking to get it out, but they only gave me local anesthesia, so I came out...

    I think I save money, but it's a tricky equation: My work reimburses me for mileage whether I drive, bike, or take the train. So my 40-mile roundtrip always gets me $23.40. If I drive, it costs me...

    What do you mean, you don't know what it is? It says it's a Humber. If memory serves, a humber is what got Bill Clinton in so much trouble.

    Like many here, commuting is my cycling, along with grocery-getting, errand-running, and going out for drinks. That said, I like to integrate extra riding into my commute, which I guess you would...

    Yeah, I'm 6'5" and I get as much stretch as I need. Admittedly, I tend to favor slightly too-small frames and I like having my hands low but close to me, but still - 6'5".
