Let's rejuvenate this group. To start I'd love to see everyone stop into my store, Green Machine Cycles to introduce yourselves. It's Chicago's dedicated cargo bike shop and you're all welcome! The cargo community is small, but growing. I'm happy to have Green Machine serve as a locus of cargoing activities in Chicago. Check us out at

I love cargo bikes.  Soon to purchase an Xtracycle Freeradical Kit, but really liked the Yuba Mundo as well.

Does anyone have a box bike (preferably already adapted for infant car seat use) that we could borrow / rent for about six months (March to September) ?  We have an xtracycle we love, but it's not a good solution for us for our new baby.  We don't have an inside parking spot that we can get a box bike into, but we do have tarps and locks and an outdoor parking spot.

We'd love to. We had a great time at the swap last year! J.

A cargo ride sounds cool.
I would like to have cargo bikes on hand for display and demonstration at the Bike Winter swap/expo on Feb 26 '11. Please save the date!
