we can now transport 400 lbs via bicycle (or one toddler and 375 lbs)! we are feeling very happy to be much more free of our car. this bike is for adam and me to share, based on our daily needs. i am looking forward to trying it out, and getting back on my beautiful bike. i have been very jealous watching suki and adam ride off with out me. we are going to try an outing with me riding behind suki on the rack, but in two more weeks i will be free of the foot brace, and ready to peddle myself all the way to the beach.
