  • As to SF man “invents” new electric cargo bike, I applaud the cargo bike! Looks like good value for the price. And I applaud any news station giving cargo bikes any kind of coverage! But there are many, many electric cargo bikes out there (most that can haul over 200 lbs, not 100), and people have been electrifying cargo bikes for at least two decades. What this guy did was come up with a slightly different steering mechanism. I think this particular modification more merits the headline “designs” rather than “invents.” Anyway, here’s hoping we see many more cargo bikes (and fewer delivery trucks) on our city streets.

    Yeah really. Love the line about ‘back when I needed a gallon of milk I had to drive to the store.’ Uh…rear rack? Basket? Bungee-cord a milk crate to your $100 beater? There, I just saved you $3,300. Sheesh.

    But, hey, if he’s making cargo bikes cool, I’m down with that. I do feel like a bit of a spectacle riding around with mine these days.
