eva's long john

This is an example of what we can do to convert a client's existing bike into a cargo bike. This was originally a Trek mid-range hybrid that we Pinocchio'd out to a stately 8 foot long john cargo bike.

Everyone loves riding a bike, but not many people enjoy hauling heavy cargo underarm while trying to stay balanced in the middle of a busy street. Our friend Eva is no exception!

Eva got so excited when we gave her this bike that she ended up loading three adults onto the cargo bed a few days after we gave it to her. We now know that the bike can hold about 500 lbs (including the rider, at a standstill).

This is only the third long john style cargo bike to be introduced to the streets of Halifax, so people turn their heads wherever it gets ridden.
