Since I will be living car-free very soon, I’ve been wanting a cargo bike, a Big Dummy in particular. I have other bikes I want first, but the opportunity to try and possibly buy a used Big Dummy for a good price came up.
Ian contacted me about his BD. I went to his house on Friday and picked up the bike. The idea is a week-long test-ride while he’s on vacation.
After getting the bike back home, I adjusted the saddle and went for a ride. I went out to Za’s for pizza and parked the bike “motorcycle-style” in the road.
Today, I went out to Feeder’s Supply for dog food and cat litter. I put 55lbs of pet supplies in the rear bags of the BD and stopped at three different bars on the way home for food and beer.
There is a tiny bit of flex in the frame with that amount of weight. I’ve already decided I want the bike. I now just need to come up with the money.
