JoeBoxBike Sold, Cetma Largo is in transit!

After 8 months of owning a top notch JoeBoxBike, I decided to go for an even nicer ride.

A few weeks back I pulled together enough ching for a Cetma Largo that I managed to find sitting on the shop floor in San Francisco. I bought the Largo, it is being shipped! I had about a month of nervousness as I waited to see if anyone would snap up the Joeboxbike on Craigslist. Yesterday a gentlemen came over with his family, test rode it , bought it from me and then rode home on it. YAY!

Friday the cetma arrives.

I'm sharing this here because I'm certain only fellow utilitarians or perhaps carfreers might understand just how joyous this moment is!

We've just sold our Madsen and are moving into using tandems/xtras for our family and cargo needs as the kids begin to be able to pedal. I think that the cargo bike market will see more and more used ones as the first "wave" of bikes in the current era of popularity of cargo bikes become available. Looking forward to photos!

I haven't been able to talk with any other Madsen owners, what was your experience with it? I love my bike, but it's heavy! Where I live, cargo bikes of any kind are unheard of, so I get comments on a daily basis.

Congrats on the Cetma. I love them, but they are out of my price-range.... maybe someday! Let us know when it arrives and what your thoughts are!
