That's sweet Chaad, though I notice it's not in Treetown. I also see that those aren't panniers on the back, that's speakers for a sound system.

Man, I wish the Deuce were lush like that, but no, this guy is in AZ, IIRC. Don't know much about him or the bike, other than that he's Keener and the bike is massive/ly cool.

Haha! 'Happy wife, happy home' is the saying! But, like all things that make 'em "happy", this one is gonna cost you some serious coin!

Yes, I used to see them/it at Ajo Bikes. A labor of love right there!

There's gotta be a way to hook up a dynamo powered blender. I'm not having a non-blended daquiri on my bike-litter like some sort of savage.

Can't understand why that bike doesn't collapse in the middle. Appears to be no structure there!

looks like a ladder type (I think that's what they call it) structure running under the platform. I don't see it collapsing, but I wonder what it's made of to not weight a ton.

it's the umbrella in winds I wonder about. I wonder how hard it would be to cut a sunshade, or maybe some military camo netting, down to size and position it for shade without blocking the view to see where you're going.
