Sweet

Can't wait to see it built up. I have been toying with the idea of a box type cargo bike, just haven't made up my mind yet.

What are you using for an electric assist? I just received my Cetma Largo, which I'll be using to haul around 180 pounds of kids on the hilly dirt roads of Vermont. I've been trying to get some help locally with identifying the best assist, but they're pretty uncommon around here and no one seems to know anything. Any advice would be really helpful!

I have looked at electric assist, and as far as I can tell, Bionx is way ahead of everyone else. I have only ridden a couple, but the BionX ones were like having stronger legs, while the others that I tried were like having someone pushing. I would have liked to have tried a stoke monkey.
