Louisville Correspondent Sushi-K Gets a Bakfiet!

Not one to let the winter weather get the best of her SRAB's Louisville correspondent Sushi-K continues to pedal rain or shine, in weather fair or foul. Happily for her she has a new bakfiet to keep her motivated and help carry larger loads from work or the grocer. Sushi-K promises to send a full report on her experience and some photo details but sent me the above shot as a sneak preview. As you can see, Sushi-K decorated her bakfiet during the holiday season and took advantage of the cargo container to make well packed haul. Knowing Louisville as I do, I am pretty sure you won't see many cargo bikes like this on even the Highlands streets where Sushi-K resides but this could be the start of a new trend.

Congratulations Sushi-K! We can't wait for the follow up.

I got to see Sushi-K's bike first hand a few weeks ago (http://bikeolounger.blogspot.com/2010/01/car-free-happy-hour-fun.html). It is, indeed, a very cool thing. I may have to add one to our stable at some point--it's a very cool bike--cooler than my old Raleigh 3-speed with the kid trailer-turned grocery bin.
