My friend Jeremy has been iterating front loaders for years now, and now he always trusses the boom tube through the middle. I think that proved to be a point of failure in unbraced versions.

Could easily be marketed worldwide as the ultimate in nanny cycles, and for green-minded day care centers; even industrial applications. Plenty of room also for sponsors to rent add space (Gerber, Toys R Us, Pampers, Kellogs, etc.) to help defray the cost of ownership, as well as other commercial uses (flower, pizza, plants, local delivery-you name it).
