Make Room For More Cargo By Losing The Smugness


I beheld this wonder on my ride to the office this morning.   Portland may be the nexus of the xtracycle world, but here in Salt Lake City we haul our cargo by bicycle too.   I would have liked to ask the owner a few questions about this thing but he was 'sleeping' under a nearby tree and I was afraid to disturb him.   I did get close enough to see that it's held together entierly by bailing wire and zip ties.   This man is taking cargo bikes where no man has gone before.   Who says Utahns have lost that
pioneering spirit?
