I have 2 questions.
1. My husband is looking to buy a Mk 3 cargo bike (or similar style) but is 6ft 4 (193.04cm) and we are unsure if he would actually fit on it.
Is there anyone who has one that would mind us coming along and giving it a try?
2. Is there any issues riding them in SA. Im aware there is a width law on bikes and the Mk 3 is a smidge wider..??
Cathie, you missed this last month. Check out the links below, post on the first link, and also post on the AC group Cargo and Utility Cycling.

Yes its a pity I didnt get my act togeather a little sooner.
Thanks for the links Heather.
I have the christiania that your welcome to try (im in lobethal but bring it down to the city quite often) . My husband is 6ft and fits on the bike fine with room to spare.
Thanks for your offer Tammy.
We would be quite happy to come up. How should we work this?
Jeremy Miller would be close to 6.4 and it wouldn't surprise me if he's ridden every cargo bike in Adelaide. Worth contacting him for an opinion. He is an AC member
as I understand Bike SA has one for loan.
there is also on art the community center at
171 Sturt St in the city
I have never borrowed these bikes so i don't know how the system works
while they are difernt they are not that hard to ride.
however I have not ridden a fully laden one hills with 100Kg of cargo may be a challenge
I think the bike SA only have the two wheeled kind?
I ride my christiania around lobethal and its quite hard with the hills but in low gear its possible.
