While we’re on the subject, here’s a sweet cargo bike from Alternative Needs Transportation (A.N.T.).

The “Basket Bike” is based on a postal delivery bike of years past, however is a fine design for general city riding and commuting. What makes this bike work so well is the small 20″ front wheel and frame mounted WALD basket [enough for 3 or 4 grocery bags]. The weight of the load is on the frame and not the wheel. The small front wheel adds to the ease of mobilty with or without a load [it works so well it is hard to tell that you are carrying a load]. The basket is also enhanced with a wood base that adds to the visual appeal and keeps parcels from falling through.
