Historic Rails to Trails

It starts with a rails to trails section, a long hard climb, country roads, and back through a canyon.

Soma Tradesmen: Downsized, Light-Duty Cargo

Our downsized cargo bike – for the lighter loads and no passengers

For this Fathers Day, a post about the end of an era. Last night, Mark V rode off with the Bettie 2.5. He’s going to disassemble it, pack it up carefully, and ship it to a new owner. Glad we found a good home for a cargo bike that transported the family, the products we make, and replaced a car.

A cargo bike so fun, take the long way home

Downsizing Cargo

As the kids got older and bigger, they outgrew the Bettie in the loads it can handle and being seen on it. What was once fun for us when they were little became a chore when they demanded I drop them off a block away, then not even close. Like empty nesters, we’ve simplified and downsized what we ride to a Soma Tradesmen. It’s like trading in a mini-van for a small-sized car. Instead of lumbering around like driving a van, I’m zipping around on the Tradesmen and taking the long way home.

Delivering mail, packages, and riding around

Note: USPS touts are provided for merchants that use their services frequently, as we do. No we did not steal those. You can put whatever you want on the front of the Tradesmen.

Most futuristic bicycle concepts concentrates on the bike itself but not the interaction between the bike & rider. This concept is a result of an investigation into the possibilities and challenges of a bicycle-human hybrid.
