Cargo Bike Photos
Nice weather this afternoon, so I took the Frankenbike to the shops to pick up dog food supplies. Seeing as the light was so good I also took some photos of the bike – named after another Dead Poet, she’s Mary Shelley – for obvious reasons:
Mary Shelley, Frankenbike. Around 3m long and with a 7m turning circle.
From the front
Steering linkage & box detail
Steering linkage & prop stand. Yes – that’s made out of the front donor bike’s handlebars
A little titanium bling on the rear mech. Saving weight is important on this sort of bike!
… and ready to come home. Just 17kg on this trip, though I’ve had 50kg in there before. The weight makes the steering surprisingly positive – you point the bike and it goes in that direction.
