Well this is a lot of text. I've tried to add lots of images to break it up. I want to get my build logs up to date after which I will post on some current issues and questions that I have. The timeline is not very accurate but who cares? Not me.
A couple of years ago I was looking to build a Velomobile. Mostly due to money issues this nothing had come of it but since then I rode my bike a lot more and made quite a few redesigns. After I saw photos of the New Zealand designed Pedego Stretch I decided a midtail cargo bike would be a much better option – at least for now.
