This is my favourite bike I've ever owned. It's a joy to ride. It handles great and handles even better when loaded up.
I bought it when I became a dad in 2020 and rode around with my son in it for 6 months on paternity leave during all the lockdowns. Great fun.
It's a custom build from August Bicycles (@RunRabbitRun). Gavin paid attention to every detail. He drilled the fork to internally route the dynamo wiring and made a custom mount for the rear light. Even the grips were installed at the same angle (I guess we both notice these things!).
If you're considering it for child transport, I put our car seat in the bucket then looped a ratchet strap through the underside of the car seat, through a slot I cut in the bucket, and around the frame. When my son developed decent head control I switched it out for a Babboe toddler seat, which is included in the sale, if you want it.
I am sad to sell it but I've moved from London to West Yorkshire and it's too much hard work to get it up the large hill to my house, despite the huge gear range. It needs to go to pay towards an e-cargo bike.
I've looked after it. It's done about 1100 km and (sadly) spent the Aug 2021-March 2022 in storage whilst I was living with family.

I'm looking for £2300. I really want it to go to a good home rather than sit in my garage unused.
Collection from Calderdale, West Yorkshire (yes, I should have sold before moving). It easily fits in a small van (e.g. Volkswagen Transporter) or you could probably get it in an estate car with the seats down and wheel(s) off.
