The Bootlegger Keg Trike
It does exist! We first reported on this keg trike cargo bike design about a month ago, and as of the last few weeks Zach Yendra of Yendra Built Cycles has taken it from the computer screen the the real world. Check out the suspended keg platform and dual front 185 mm discs and of course the 36″ rear wheel reportedly to further smooth out the bumps. This is bike #1, The Bootlegger, and is currently in use in Fort Collins for local keg deliveries from Equinox Brewing. So far the maximum tested load was 520 lbs — a full half barrel (167 lbs), passenger on top of keg (175 lbs) and rider (180 lbs). You can read more on the bike’s debut and see a video of it in action in this article out of The Coloradoan, and find more photos of the bike at the Yendra Build Cycles Facebook page.
