I was thinking of getting the Cargo Joe Family xtracycle bike to haul the kids around. I was concerned the Edgerunner might be too long to for my apartment and like the fact that the Cargo Joe folds. But when I went on the Xtracycle website I saw this slightly scary warning:
Does anyone know what the deal is with using the Cargo Joe to haul a bunch of kids? They used to sell this bike as a family hauler. Was the change an insurance thing or is it really not safe to use the Cargo Joe for kids? Would love some help figuring this all out.WHAT HAPPENED TO CARGO JOE FAMILY?
Engineers at Tern and Xtracycle place your safety above all else. Cargo Joe is a great commuter bike, but not designed for the rigors and stresses of family hauling. EdgeRunner is purpose-built around kid carrying. Yes, it's a little more expensive than Cargo Joe, but we believe that your safety and peace of mind are well worth it.
