And hello to you! We don’t name drop here much at Hugga, but there are lots of names in that video and cool.
I recently posted about the Macbook Air as a travel computer for cyclists. I also covered my effort to
… become more mobile, simplified, and lightweight. Traveling with an folding bike, S&S case brings out the perfect packer in me and a desire to get even more efficient on the road.
In this post, I’ll continue the discussion on being more mobile and the “Great Mac Sync.”
Long johns, longtails, just plain long bikes. Does a cargo bike have to be a big bike? Is there too much beast and burden in these beasts of burden? In this week’s cargo bike entry, I’ll begin talking about cargo bikes that are more conservative in size but may have more potential for the greater cycling public. In essence, the next two types of cargo bikes have racks affixed to the front or on the steering axis but differ in the rack’s mounting points.
The first type is what we will call a porteur, named after the French newspaper delivery riders who rushed the newest editions to the street vendors during the heated print media competition early last century. The best riders were well-paid for their endurance and speed and so had money to buy bicycles from builders better known for their competition machines than mundane work bikes.
