The first sale: Bike 003

Well, I have the web site name, the DBA business license, working on some wholesalers to do business with and my Friend Michael has asked me to build a cargo bike for him. He has made a deposit and I told him to expect his frame no later than Jan 1st. I have fitted him and started doing some calculations on rake and trail and BB height and Chain stay length. This will be quite the project. Looks like we are going to build a 20" front with a drum brake with a Dyno and a rear 26" wheel with an 8 speed hub with a drum brake. Going to make the cargo bed somewhat of a wood bed with side slats to adjust cargo, kind of like a old Radio Flyer wagon. More info to follow. I'm in Alaska right now spending time with my parents. I'm reading the Paterak book again, this time I actually understand what he is talking about.
