What have you done to your cargo bike lately?
 
Luckily the guys at the LBS were awesome enough to add on the BB7 brakes out back.

I just added a rear fender today.

I also threw on a Lizard Skins chain stay protector. My wife wanted a light setup for her bike, so I got her a front/back pack (Cateye) and a PB Superflash. Since the Superflash is brighter, I put that on her bike and installed the spare rear light on the back of my bike. Now I have two rear lights. I doubt I could ever have enough. hahaha

Started pulling it out but we had approx 5" snow again today :eek:.

I want to put a tandem cable with a whole lenght cablehousing on it. Just need to find out where I left it.

Been thinking of switching out the front bike with a deep steptrough frame but would it then be Dogbike2 or Dogbike3?

The B17 should be in tomorrow, very excited about that even though a co-worker gives me a hard time about not getting the orange one (I ride an orange troll) almost hourly.

haha, Generally that is the case but here the other guy has an obsession with color matching and more specifically blue. He bought a blue brooks for his blue bike at the same time I bought my brown brooks. Its all in good fun!

Added Jones bars to my old Xtracycle. Had a tough time finding a long enough adapter to go from quill stem to the new style and still get the height I need. Now I need a shorter stem.

Love these bars, so many options. I like the thumbie shifter on the left and rapidfire on the right. Why didnt i think of that!

My Incredibell finally made it on the bike. My wife thinks it is funny that I put a bell on my bike. I told her, when I ride the local bike path, it is much easier to simply move my thumb slightly to ring the bell than to constantly yell out "on your left".

She still won't own one. Hopefully we will get caught up behind people taking up the whole sidewalk where I ring the bell and they move out of the way. Maybe then she will understand. :D

living by the beach and riding the paths alot, even riding in the hills, bells are easy and unintrusive. people just look back and move over. yelling on the left or something tends to be a pain. but hey, baskets are a huge tool as well, the paper, a beach towel, lunch. working on a custom basket right now :)
call me a dork

Last weekend I moved the Xtra from my trusted steed, a Schwinn Ranger I've ridden for the last ten years, to the fresh blood of a 200? GT Karakoram. My son got the old Schwinn after new brakes, cables and seat. Unfortunately, I couldnt keep the kickback (doesnt clear the chain for some reason) so that went onto my wife's Xtra.

I installed a red LED 12 volt marker light on the left rear pannier. It was a freebee , literally fell off the back of a truck; with a little help from another vehicle. It was banged up, but a dab of Duco Cement and a small square of red lens repair tape. I have an all LED , 12 volt lighting system. The front platform carries a 12v/7ah and a 12v/12ah lead acid batteries.
