    Lightbulb Cargo bike design winner

    If any one else wants to build it, do it! And of course you keep the bike, all I want are photos, of the construction and finished product.

    Wait! If any one else can design something totally new and better, let me know about it. BUT DO NOT JUST ASSUME THAT IT IS POSSIBLE TO INVENT SOME THING NEW WITH OUT PLENTY OF RESEARCH.

    I made it possible to carry a propane tank because that is the heaviest thing i carry on a regular basis.

    You don't need 15" floor width at the propane tank. You only need a little bit of floor to set the flange on, and to hold it higher up with a strap. This would let you put it much lower. The tanks are a very standard size so you can have confidence using one to make patterns. Look at tanks on the front of camping trailers for ideas. You could then build a v-shaped compartment around that, which would open up your design space.
