The CETMA Cargo Bike is Here!8:54 AM
Well, here it is! Brian has been waiting about nine months for this bike (well worth the wait), so we had to document this correctly. Now, there is another cargo bike in our fleet, and this time it's an American, handmade bike by Lane of CETMA Cargo.
Last spring we sold our first cargo bike, the Madsen (still a great cargo bike), so that we could save the money to buy Brian's dream cargo bike. He already had most of the parts from an old downhill mountain bike, so all he needed was the frame. Because of this we didn't need to save up as much for a full bike. Plus, Brian loves building bikes and was excited to have a project to complete in his near future.
Let me just say I am not the bike person of this family and I don't really know anything about them, but this bike is gorgeous! Without even putting it together you could see the craftsmanship, care, and time that went into making this bike. It is a quality bike! (Thank you so much Lane! We already love the bike so much! Your hard work and talent really does show!)
Over the next few weeks we hope to get a box built to put kiddos and such on the front. Brian needs to put some finishing touches on it in terms of a new chain and a brake cable for the front too. Though, it's pretty much all built and ready to go.
Here are some video snippets of the maiden voyage:
