Bullitt Cargo Bikes (Long John Style)
I saw a cargo bike last year, but I forgot the name of it. Today, the first nice day of real spring weather, I saw the bike again, and I asked the rider to stop so I could write the name down: "BULLITT".
The web address was on the frame, but the factory is located in Copenhagen.
Here is an English version:
As many of you know, I prefer cargo platforms/boxes to be on the front of my bikes. Contrary to what many people believe, the front loaded cargo bikes are easy to steer. It is NOT like a handlebar basket, which swings side-to-side with momentum, making a bike difficult to steer, when heavily loaded.
I first rode a "Long John" bike in 1987, at the IHPVA'S International Human Powered Speed Championships. It rode wonderfully well, with it's long wheelbase, although a screw shook loose while riding across some railroad tracks, and the (large) kickstand fell off. (I'm sorry about that).
Anyway, I'm thinking about buying a Bullitt Cargo Bike. Apparently, they do ship to the United States.
How many of these bikes have been imported? Does anyone here have one?
