    When life gives you an extra wheel...

    You go mountaintriking!

    I have not been mountain biking as much as I used to when I first started over ten years ago. Wife, two kids, and family goals have kept me pretty busy. So what did I do to stop getting fat while I sat at my comfy IT job that was killing me? I quit my job and bought a pedicab. Three years later and i am still at it. Riding downtown most nights and taking every opportunity to take the cab off roading. 8 cabs were permitted to service patrons for this past weekend's Euphoria Music Festival in Carson Creek Ranch. It was an awesome weekend! We did Sound on Sound Festival as well out in Sherwood Forest. All our cabs have 29 inch wheels and lefty forks. Industry only cab with a tailgate for cargo and a max capacity of just under 1000 pounds. I'm still lurking around and keping up with y'all every now and then. Just wanted to share my weekend with y'all.

    Lucky Gimpy, I say.

    I'm still being killed at my comfy IT job and riding very seldom since getting married. (gonna ride more, I swear I will)

    It is nice to hear what you've been up to since the good ol' days of our road trip to Colorado and Utah.

    That is the first prototype Ken Cameron and David Knipp built almost 10 years ago. It is the only one they built with 26" wheels before converting to 29ers. The last picture is of their most recent production Festival Cab.

    I like the like button. I haven't really used it since it was added but, it's nice to acknowledge a comment. I'm saying this because I haven't posted in years. Actually, I have a bit of history with this here on BikeMojo. Ridenfool, this post will forever live in my mind and heart. This was from seven years ago before I even wanted to pedicab for money.
