I actually had some of them but didn't have much success. I found the ratchet mechanisms a bit weak and they jammed and tangled up regularly. I'm used to full-size ratchet straps, so maybe my expectations were a bit high!
Didn't suit your needs?
Somehow my $60nzd crabon fork held up to 200+kms of rough gravel.
This is by far my favourite bike!!!
Nice bike, why the mismatched brakes?
Where'd you find a carbon 20" fork with a steerer long enough?
Nice sandals Sarah. 😍
Why the tennis ball in the rear spokes?
Man I want one of these frames so badly, even though I have absolutely no need for it
Nice one! I think I have the same cheap carbon fork on my minicargo, seems fine.
your mini cargo is sooo good! well done!
wow. more details about this bike pls?
should be called Long Minicargo™ really
Thanks! There was a bit of discussion about the bike here some time ago.
Short recap: Frame was built for NCMC 2017 cargo bike race, I bought the frameset in 2018 and built the bike up (here's what I started with). The steering is still a bit of a hack job with unpainted parts and sharp edges, so I haven't bothered to take detail pics of the bike.
Took a corner a bit too fast on the way home. Solid 5 metre slide. Luckily I’m not seriously hurt but will probably be a bit sore tomorrow.
Think the corner of the rack actually saved me. Apparently there were sparks!
Yeah I’ve lost the front end of my mini maxi on a slippery round about before, big crash, some scraps but no damage really, thankfully
Wow, I never knew bungee were so contentious. I've been using them, & ratchet straps & ladder clamps for over a decade with no prob. The ratchet straps I find good for heavy loads but not as convenient as bungees
:edit: bah, forum having issues uploading images, so I nvm I guess.
Any link to the fork? And a steerer length? Could be after something similar.
Reader's. Still loving it after a year of daily commuting and grocery-getting.
:edit: oh good, bottom of the fucking page lol.
Looks like an excellent setup.
Im sensitive to it probably due to my job. it happens a lot.
fuck, please add a warning of horrible image on page 4
all bungee's going in the bin when i get home tonight
No, It was a bit of an impulse buy TBH. My dog prefers the Pizza Rack set up on my other bike and at the end of the month I will only be taking her to work very occasionally so seems overkill having a bike dedicated to moving my dog around.
