I ride a Surly dummy. It is fun and carry a sh*** load without much effort. So when I saw this video by extracycles, it seem like longtails are at least getting some traction in other countries. The guy talking is Sam Whittingham who have been designing biycles for a long time. He talking about how folks are using the Longtails. This are ordinary folks who want to use it to commute and carry stuff, kids. They want to feel safe while riding, this is why the centre of gravity is important. Lowering the wheel will help make that..." Watch this video and see the Longtail 2.0 forming up!
