Living simply in an over-complicated world
June 1, 2011 in Bakfiets, Workbike
Carrying the shopping home from the next town, a fairly normal Bakiets load. I didn’t notice I was carrying the wheel until I got to the shops.
It’s worrying how easily small things disappear on a thirty kilo bike.

To me this is a very interesting view, riding a bike and having all the load in sight.
But the front wheel in a distance that far away from the driver makes me feel uncomfortable.
I would like to ride a bike like this. Just for testing….
Just to mention it: I am sure it works fine! The Long John concept is not a new invention.
And it wouldn’t have stayed alive, if it wasn’t usable.
There are are times, when I wish I could see my load on my Mundo while riding.

Hello Big Smile…
It took a few minutes in central Amsterdam before I was quite used to the system, which were made more lively by an impatient street cleaning truck buzzing me. Once you get the hang of it though it’s fine…
You’re welcome to have a test ride if you’re around Stuttgart any time…
