A cargo bike of a different sort

We are big, big fans of Xtracycle products (which I have featured here). And our neighbor down the road rides and adores his own Xtracycle configuration. But when he saw this number on the web some 18 months ago he HAD to have it. He purchased the frame set and not having the time to finish the build himself he brought it in for Ethan to finish the task this month. An ideal Winter project for the shop. I hope he has as much fun riding it as we had building it into a rideable cargo bike.

Components we added; Schwalbe Big Apple tires, B&M lights from Germany, Sugino crank arms, Surly chainrinng, KMC chain, and last but not least Wald balloon fenders.
