    I'm very pleased to learn that the 2021 Tour de France is starting in Copenhagen.

    If it's a steel fork you could insert a star-fangled nut at the bottom and use an M5 as a daruma bolt of sorts. As a spacer I used a cork.

    I thought the short and long versions only refers to the front guard, the description on the website seems to support that too?

    The Berthoud are not any heavier than your PDW?

    As per Surly I don't see why a short headtube is a bad thing in itself, not all bikes are designed to be build with a slammed stem. Plus I guess it gives the option of having flat bars (on the next size up from what you would have with drops) with enough standover clearance.

    You're not making $500 face masks, are you?

    I bought a Mini-Max as I don't need the extra carrying capability on a regular basis, for me it's a daily that happens to be able to carry stuff when needed. I have the extended bar that has proven useful for larger items (including a 2m long table top). I like the fact it's a lovely bike to ride regardless of it being a cargo bike, it's not just a load carrying tool.

    Will you ever hang out around the airport with us though?

    I briefly worked for a R&M dealer so I have tried a few of their models. I had to deliver a Load across town once, I thought it was very smooth and comfortable and I was very impressed with the e-assist but... it's so heavy it has its own gravity field, and unsurprisingly it's not exactly nimble in traffic. It's really not meant for quick changes of direction and to be ridden above the 25kph motor limiter.
    If you're considering Bullitt and Omnium trying both with @VeloSurMer seems a no-brainer to me, so you can decide for yourself.*

    *and quickly realise the Omnium is without a doubt the best handling bike out of the two, and after all @VeloSurMer himself has a MiniMax so really it's the one to go for ;-)

    What I'm trying to say is the respective owners of the two brands have very different goals in terms of what they are trying to achieve commercially with their products. The fact that there's more Bullitts around is simply not the result of them being better bikes full stop. You could argue this is true for a lot of bikes.
    Depending on your priorities, you may want to go for one or the other, or something else altogether. That's absolutely fine.
