Latest load on the Xtracycle

Sorry that I have not updated in a while. I spent the Fourth away from technology.

Last Thursday, some guy stopped his car to ask me about the Xtracycle. As we were talking, he told me that recognized the bike. Of course, he thought I was Jamie from Bike Commuting in Columbus.

Here is the load I carried. Three things made the trip home great. First, the car seat made people think there was a kid on the back of the bike, so I had plenty of space on the road. The second was the the car seat acted like a sail in the tail wind.

The last great part of this trip was that I ran into the Safelite guy who repaired my wife's windshield earlier that week. While he waited for the epoxy to cure, we talked bikes. As he drove past, I saw a big thumbs up. It made that last stretch home a little bit easier.

He thought you were me? I'm sorry, dude...

By the way... were you riding it down Calumet with a couple of other folks on Saturday morning? We passed someone on an XtraCycle on the way to the park and I was getting excited to see one in person for the first time.

Unfortunately, my wife is against putting our 9-month-old baby into a bike seat until she's a year-old, so we were in our car.
