Wink Facebook Group

I started a Facebook group for all the cargo cyclists out there. When I was searching for groups I found that there was a lack of anything on the social media in regards to this. Anyway, here it is....Feel free to join in and post away.

Why did you make it a "closed group" **********?

I joined. I like the pictures - people can be very creative when "rigging" out their bicycles!

I am always amazed at the creativity of people when it comes to the big bikes. Fortunately, those of us who ride these behemoths are definitely NOT "gram counters".

Currently, I am searching for the "right look" to add a wood deck to the back platform and on the front rack of mine. It has to be thin enough to not take a LOT of space away and strong enough to take a bit of a beating.......any ideas? I have been looking at skateboard decks......

Love your pics, Beast. I joined, though I don't do much cargo biking anymore... hopefully that will change soon.
