Seen Bikes at Work on Farms?
I was talking with my CSA farmer about using a bike or a trike to haul boxes of veggies around the farm. While there is quite the spectrum of cargo bikes and trailers, hauling loads over unimproved paths seems challenging for small wheeled trailers.

Finally, a Pneumatic Bike Trailer Hitch!
I LOVE the pneumatic quick release as a mechanism for an axle level trailer hitch…and so does my wife. The dumb-ass vice-hitch that came with the kidarooz trailer was repeatedly failing.
