    How on god's green earth do you get on that bike?.... and how do you stop at a red light?

    It's a piece of cake. You just put your foot on the pedal, push off and swing your leg over.

    Here's a picture of some more conventional cargo with a more conventional setup:

    I keep meaning to haul the old commuter outside and take photos, but am too lazy it appears. So taken in the garage (actually my bedroom, the plywood is to protect the landlords carpet from dripping oil)



    I bought the Advantage in Feb '93 according to my records, I think it was actually a '92 model. I had to take it back and have a lot of little things fixed that should have been taken care of before delivery, so much for buying at the LBS, according to some notes stuck in the owners manual with the receipt. I then added the fenders, rack, lights (they died over the years and I need to replace them), and folding Wald baskets that took a old fashioned paper grocery bag each (I have no idea what became of them). The serious U-bolt lock disappear in moving up here too, the one you see there is a cheap Wal-Mart lock.

    The Brooks B-66 and the Nitto Northroad bars are a recent addition, it previously had the B-72 that is now on my Dunelt and what I always call French bars (because back in the 1950's that is what all the French 3-speeds seem to have) but now seem to be called all-rounders.

    I have a SA front drum brake I eventually will get laced into the front rim, and I want to put a generator light kit on it (I learned to hate battery eating lights in my commuting days).

    Since my disability limits me and there is a rather steep climb between me and town I keep thinking how nice it would be to put a rear hub motor on the Bianchi.

    Alright, finally. Well, this is my new bike that replaced the last one my Xtracycle was on, which was actually borrowed from a friend - 3 and a half inches too small, geared much too high, and with a broken headset.. Ended up getting him a new headset and a steering tube extended for it, but sprung for a Rocky Mountain today

    I like it.

    It's been nearly two years since I switched from being car-free by bus to being car-free by bike. I still need only the basics. As much as I'd love to have an xtra, or a porteur bike, or even a trailer, I just don't buy that much stuff. And what I do buy, is small stuff. And the grocery store is only two miles so I shop a couple of times a week instead of make infrequent huge trips.

    So no heavy hauler for me. Yet.

    This past autumn I treated myself to a new bike. And while I was at it, I splurged on a Tubus Cosmo rack in stainless steel.



    I like this rack because I can mount my Arkel Tailrider on the top, and there's a set of lower siderails for the grocery panniers. It's much easier to mount them both on separate rails.



    So far, all I've needed is this, a couple of bungees, that nifty bike rack-sized cargo net from Delta, and a Corning Portables casserole dish for the occasional pot luck dinner.

    Very attractive bike; but the low height of those dropped handlebars for a utility bike! Do you ever use the drops?

    Yeah, that's what everybody says. But I figure a utility bike is what you do with it not a style matter.

    I started out with a bolt-upright hybrid and hated it, especially with the wind we get here. I bought a road bike for a fun bike last spring, and next thing you know, I was putting a rack on it. Loved it, even though it was twitchy with a load on.

    The Portland's touring bike heritage makes the loads seem to disappear, and I can get down out of the wind on the drops. I mainly ride the hoods though and made sure that's what feels best in the fit.

    (And you should hear the comments when the bike is wearing its studded snow tires!)

    I've got those bags, the Novara 'Round Town Panniers. They're fantastic, and I think they were something like $50 for the pair. I bring them into Whole Foods with me and save $.20 for not using their bags. They've got a metal frame and a rigid bottom, much more sturdy than I imagined when I saw them online the first time.

    I refer to this one as my "Truck", it sports the large bag for small things and has 2 trailer hitches, one for the Grandbaby trailer, hauls kids, and another hitch for the Nashbar Cargo trailer that hauls everything from car parts to groceries.
    I use it for major runs to the grocery or quickys for fast food,, or a gallon of milk.

    The bike, a Fuji Cadenza, belonged to my Grandfather and is a pretty useful machine. The BAW trailer I've had for a year or so and have carried many loads with, usually with my recumbent. I recommend the BAW toters, they can haul BIG loads. just check their website!

    The first two and the last look like Electra Rat Finks with the Xtracycle of course. Sweet rides.
