Ever since I’ve read Tammy’s Simply Car Free e-Book I’ve sort of been on the lookout for bicycles.
Especially ones that are able to carry groceries and stuff like that. This why I could actually use my bicycle as a replacement for my car.
Even for things like going to the grocery store.
And that’s why this cargo bicycle caught my eye!
Normally it was $999 but it was on sale for $849
So I ran into this bicycle that’s regularly $999. It’s now on sale for $849 and it looks like a great all around bike to use as a commuter and to do errands.

When I was a kid and running around my part of Dallas dropping papers, I had a bike with a set of saddle baskets on the back and a cargo (read as; big) basket on the front. Funny how that would be an ideal set up now some 30 years later and 150 miles away
How difficult worldcat it be to create a folding bike from an existing regular bike? I like the concept of a folding bike- one that I can just throw in the trunk of my car and use for riding when I’m in the city- where they have some interesting bike trails. I hate to just saw my bike frame in half. Is there any kind of hinge designed for creating your own folding bike? Also if I did buy a folding bike is their any brand you would reccomend? Thanks!
S&S couplers is what may suit you. They aren’t cheap to install. They’re threaded couplings that your frame is retrofitted with, they also have cable couplings as well.
Thanks for the info! I ended up buying a Tern Eclipse folding bike with 24 inch wheels and 9 speeds. I’m very happy with the bike even though it cost quite a lot. It will be worth it as it is a good quality bike and will see a lot of use. I’d still like to try converting a regular bike into a folding one. It seems like a good subject for DIY project- perfect for a tiny house dweller or philosopher.
