“I am a courier in Paris and it really helps when you have a lot of weight on your cargo load. You have this gear you can go back to and it is really a great help when you are on the big climbs.”:
Notes: Honestly, I have never seen any rear cog like this before. It is the proverbial telephone pole – the gear that lets you ride a vertical climb. It was a combination that had a few of us staring at the design. Very effective.
But cargo bikes and hills are not the friendliest combination. Having another gear to reach to is comforting. Especially when loaded. Just the smallest load, over kilometre or so, can murder your legs.
I have done a few tours where this sort of combination would have been ideal. But, I still have to think about making a complete pedal revolution and the bike moving ahead 10 inches…
