Our Larry vs Harry Bullitt has about 500 miles on it, which is a big deal seeing our average trip distance is 3.6 miles! I figured this was a good time to post an initial review of the family cargo bike, how we built it up, and answer the question, “Would you buy it again?”

  1. Are the load decks on cargo bikes of a similar size (length & width) ? Compare the Bullitt vs. the LIFT conversion. Douze has a segmented platform that comes in 3 lengths (but they don’t say what the different lengths are!).

    Are the wheelbases comparable, if the length of the platforms are the same?

    I’m considering a LIFT conversion kit – was wondering about total bike length vs. the Bullitt?

    Nice job on both reviews.
    Thank you.

    1. Greg – they aren’t comparable IMO. (I’ll have a full review up later this week) The LIFT wheelbase depends on the length of your donor bike. The Bullitt had a tighter turning radius, and more options for boxes. My Bullitt has a double wide box (they make a triple wide) and is braced on both sides with the bike frame instead of a beam down the middle like the LIFT.

      I haven’t seen in a Douze in person so I can’t help with that one right now, but will message out some friends that do have one!

      Shoot me an email arleigh at gmail.com if you have more specific questions.
