Today, we were dropping off an old Schwinn for revamping at Edible Pedal. Kevin rode the new HaulaDay and I took Smurfette. Smurfette needed a bit of a tune up to tighten the chain and adjust the derailures. Also, the new Xtracycle decks have premarked cutouts for Yepp Maxi seats and since we have one now, that would make installing the seat wonderfully easy.
At EP, we ran into John Lucas of Cycle Trucks. It was a bevy (conglomeration?) of compact cargo bikes!
I decided to leave Smurfette at EP and took the opportunity to hitch a ride back on the new (Mk3) HaulaDay. I let Kevin drive back and squeezed into the upgraded Whoopie-Deux handlebars (the first set were too low and narrow).
It's hard being a passenger and giving up control but the ride went smoothly. The internal gears were really helpful in allowing quick starts in the city.
Kevin didn't have any problems riding with me on deck. I didn't have any problems being cargo. The foot bars were comfortable. I don't have a seat cushion on this bike, yet, and that would have been nice. Overall, it was a great ride!
