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?”
Reviews of bicycles by women, for women.

A quick preview of the FitWell Bicycle Company Fahrlander II and DeGroot III. Thus far I am very impressed with these two bikes and FitWell has them significantly discounted on www.FitWellBikes.com. A full review for each bike and an article on “How to Fit a FitWell” will be coming in the next few weeks!

Personally, if I was looking for a daily do all commuter and a get out of town bike-packing bike the Fahrlander II would be the first option I would look at.
While at $999 it is the cheapest bike in her stable I can EASILY say that “Barney”, the Nature Boy, gives my wife the most joy and happiness than any bike I have seen her on.
