Two winters ago, my friend Ricky implored me to buy into a group purchase.
“Why do I need to spend $60 on bike tubes?” I asked.
“So you can build a cargo bike,” Ricky replied as if he was uttering the simplest of logics,
I didn’t know what that meant, but it sounded interesting. I still needed some convincing.
“I already have a trailer.”
“Listen, trailers ain’t shit. You need a cargo bike, you just don’t know it yet.”
