Recently I have been trying to find ways to bring my little girl and wifey along for the sunday rides and trying to make more family-time while enjoying cycling. I think the answer might be Cargo bikes. So with google... here is one of the site I found . CETMA,  in Lane's actual words...  "CETMA is run by one guy in a simple shop without automation,  mechanized assembly, robots, lasers, sorcery, superpowers or psychic beavers."  For those who are interested, pls go click here to see the cool stuff. http://www.cetmacargo.com/index.html

The biggest challenge now is as I live in Singapore HDB apartments, access to my home is by a lift which is about 2.4 m height. So if the cargo bike can be dismantled by quick release.. it would be perhaps something compelling in Singapore... hmmm. Cargo bikes, do u think Singapore is ready for it?

  2. Too big -- only works for those living in houses and must be those with enough porch or parking space. It may be too big also for Condos with bike parking spaces.

    Infrastructure here is also too small -- PCNs and bike paths often have tight turns and how will you use the overhead bridges or underpasses??
