Cargo bike 1

The rear rack, bags, and Hooptie all fit over top and hide the underlying kit almost entirely. If you don’t have a Hooptie, the battery can actually mount on a custom rail underneath the load-deck and above the motor mount – it is pretty slick, but the two bars that come out of the front of the Hooptie preclude its use, so we have just put it inside the Xtracycle bag. (which itself is quite water-resistant). You can also see my crankset is a Patterson Transmission, which has a 1.65 overdrive (so I still have two gears on the front) – this crankset freewheels and comes with the kit.

He is very passionate about the future of energy generation & usage.He prefers bikes to cars, but acknowledges that Canadian cities have been developed primarily with cars in mind, so if we're going to drive, let's make them all EVs!(But let's get EV buses and take those where possible first.)
