    One thing I like about the BD is that the rear is built to the xtracycle dimensions, if I'm not mistaken. That means all the xtracycle accessories should fit. There is not one dominant standard in...

    They didn't sell because the dealers were afraid to stock one for display. I live in a metro of over 2 million, with multiple dedicated Trek flagship stores, and a bunch of smaller Trek-stocking...

    The cargo bikes out there all have compromises. Depends what you want it to do.

    If maximum weight capacity is a big issue for you, then a Yuba Mundo or Surly Big Dummy might work. Their strong...

    The bash TT vs BD thing is a wee bit humorous. Of course the BD is a better bike. It ought to be, considering the price difference. You can get a new TT for around a grand. Last I checked, a BD...

    This is very good advice. If you're relatively new into cycling, I don't think I'd drop $1500+ on a bike right off the bat.

    I'd think about something like a Jamis Coda Comp (can find for under...

    I would avoid suspension. In my opinion, better no suspension than low end suspension. If I were you, I'd look for something like an old steel MTB with good solid wheels. At the very least, if...

    I have the hots for an AWOL, but I really have no NEED for one. I really with you all would stop talking about this bike so I could forget about it.

    The one thing that occurs to me is that with the carbon fork, you might be limited to a 32 tire, max. The steel fork seems to have tons of free space. So, if you wanted to run a larger tire for...

    Motorcyclists refer to people in cars as Cagers all the time. Also refer to cars as Cages. Have heard it for years. Not surprised to see the term on a bicycle forum at all.
