ECargo Bikes

Which of the three styles of Cargo Bikes have the most utility and why? Long Tail? Tricycle? Front Box? If you were to commute on one for four seasons which would you get? Why?

Vote for long tail

Long tail. They handle like regular bikes and are easier to maneuver from the ground too. They are also easier to store than cargo bikes with a box.
they can also haul quite a lot of stuff with a bit of thought in the packing (as opposed to a box where you can just toss your stuff)

I currently have a longtail and have been looking to switch to a bakfiets (front loader) style. My longtail is incredibly versatile with racks, bags, side frame extensions and even a sidecar but the Argo Cargo front loader attachment is looking pretty good as I can easily convert from cargo bike to standard bike in just a few minutes. Space is premium in my apartment and keeping two bikes in there is a hassle.
