The Terracycles Cargo Monster is here!
Terracycles is one of our favorite manufacturers. Pat, Robert and the gang are always working on something new and innovative! Their attention to detail is second-to-none and their customer service is well-known in the recumbent industry.
Pat and Robert have spent the past year designing an XtraCycle-style system for recumbent trikes and bikes. But to call this just an XtraCycle for recumbents would be doing it a great disservice! Each model is custom-build for the specific bike/trike that it is going to be installed on. You can also convert 20" bikes to a 26" rear wheel (works on most, but not all, models). Finally, all XtraCycle parts and accessories will work with the system.
We are expecting our first Cargo Monster next week and will post additional pictures and thoughts then. In the meantime, check out the pictures at the BikePortland.org Flickr site (many thanks to BikePortland.org for sharing these photos)
