Wooden bike parts? Got a picture?

Trendy? In the window of Cycle Life, by far the fanciest bike shop I've even visited. Cycle Life is located on the Georegtown waterfront in Washington DC.

Hi, I found this website after noticing Photobucket was showing a lot of views of my image here. :)

(I think the U Lock is quite an ironic thing to have on this bike?)

I have very fond childhood memories of a family road trip from New York to Wyoming with a travel trailer in tow. :)

Welcome, and I hope you hang out here on this forum a bit. LOVE your Bikes At Work trailer. That's a helluva company. There are bicycle moving companies that use a fleet of those trailers (and riders) in different towns throughout the country. It's really cool to see done with bikes what's usually done with a huge moving company truck.

Do you have the newer generation trailer that can be expanded?
