I’ve never heard of the term SUB used for utility cycles before. I typically refer to my XtraCycle as my station wagon. (Jump to the end of the article.)
My sister went down to the tweed ride in Portland this weekend. Looks like there’s some good photos up on flickr. Lots of sepia work, of course! I’m going to keep a lookout for grapma’s wool clothes as Goodwill. Bellingham will have a Tweed Ride someday, and I’ll be ready!
My sister also saw a wonderful example of the DIY bike spirit: a mother that built her own wooden cargo boxes for the back of her longtail bike. Big enough to carry her groceries and her baby seat. Awesome!
