    Awesome build! It's really cool to see it finished after months of watching it come together, and first build? Mad fab skills.

    Looks like a very expensive factory build. How do you top this? Awesome build.

    Ditto to all the above! And your step-by-step process was really fun to follow and pulled us in to your building space....like we were peering over your shoulder. Very well done!:41:

    I said it before, but you could set this up in a high end bicycle show room and no one would ever guess that it was hand built. Very clean professional job, congrats on such a nice build! :thumbsup::41:

    A real home run on so many levels. It's amazing you were able to make a cargo bike from scratch and then to have it look so good. Really great design and execution on this...:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    I must've missed something, what are the pegs for? The placement seems odd for a passenger.

    for long cargo , they screw in the middle of the seat stays level with the rack so i can haul long stuff on each side of the bike between my legs.. i made them removable cause they are a little in the way when i don't use them
