Got a new project: Bike Bug Cargo Trike

We’ve partnered up with the folks of BikeBug.net to create a new project build. We’ve got a Breast Cancer Awareness Ride that we plan on debuting this build at. The event is slated for October 17th, so that means we don’t have a lot of time to get it finished. So here is what we received from BikeBug.net, a foldable cargo trike. It comes with everything you see, but we did upgrade the seat to match the white fenders and we threw on a bike bell just for kicks.

Riding the Cargo Trike is going to take some getting used to. We found that it likes to tip when you take sharp turns. Another upgrade we are considering would be a 3 speed Nexus hub. Pedaling the trike isn’t impossible, but it is tough!

There’s going to be some major work involved with this build project, we just hope we can meet the deadline. Hopefully with the help of some talented people, we can get this project rolling.
