    they deliver from SLC totally assembled. the company used to send the frame and parts to your local bike shop and then have them do the assembly but they were getting tons of quality control complaints so now they deliver via freight in the 4'x3'x8' box. A bike and a fort in one delivery. Can't beat that. If you want to test ride mine, let me know because they are selling off last year's models for uber cheap right now (Madsen Cycles — Special Deals), particularly a scratched version of mine.

    Yep, it came on Monday. Have you seen me hauling ass around west town, humboldt, avondale, albany park and logan yet? It's a cream colored bucket bike by Madsen. Ding your bell if you see us.

    I agree- its difficult to deal with those in denial of science- but in the culture we live in today-its common- and thats a deadly reality we all will face soon.

    LOL! I wouldn't put money on that! : )

    I'm actually more intrigued by these things:

    Novara Afterburner Single-Speed Trailer Bike at REI.com

    I see more and more of them, and I like the fact they don't make the total bike any wider, that's my biggest issue with most of the chariot style things.

    Hey, I've been thinking about getting one of those Madsen bucket bikes to bike-pool my kid and a couple of her classmates to school this fall. I figure since you are the only sane cyclist on this board you might have an opinion on cargo bikes overall. This one is $1300 versus about 3K for a bakfiet so obviously price is a factor.

    Did you go to critical mass yesterday. I don't normally go in the summer (mostly due to what seems to go down regularly when a ton of somewhat drunken hipsters show up and last night was no exception) but the chainlink board is lighting up about cops pepper spraying a bunch of cyclist and one girl being hit by a car.

    Hope you and your fam made it out to tour de fat today. It was a blast, as always.

    hahaha. where is your son/daughter going now? we're at Concordia Avondale, our daughter's birthday is late Oct, so we can't apply for CPS schools for another year (she just turned 4).

    We may as well be friends since our kids are going to do a sit in for Avondale montessori and we'll have to bail them out of preschool jail.
