Tabling For Firth & Wilson +Test Riding A BionX Bullitt

Father's Day Weekend for the past two years has equalled at least one day of tabling for this family. This year we went to Artspiration at Fleshcher Art Memorial to table for Firth & Wilson, our local cargo bike shop.

Armed with spoke cards for kids to decorate we dropped by F&W to pick up the bionX Bullitt for display and made our way over. We were positioned next to Wash Cycle Laundry and Little Babies Ice Cream (both are businesses by bike!). 

A crowd came and went for several hours. A lot of e-assist questions and a lot of moms who were really impressed and excited by long john style bikes. I truly believe the more we have these bikes out in public view, loaded with kids and stuff the more parents will take note and say that is so smart. One mom said I don't have a bike but I want one of those bikes! Exactly.


 Last week a recycling truck stopped in an intersection to ask me about my bike (not safe, but funny to see). People just need to see what they don't even know exists to want it. 


I also finally tried the assisted Bullitt. I had always assumed I was too short after I failed mounting it at 35 weeks pregnant. But hello I was very pregnant. So in an empty Old City parking lot I got to try it out again. First yes at 5'3 with shorter legs I'm probably at the bottom edge of someone who can ride it. And yes I still prefer the easier mounting of the the UA. 

The UA is a Dutch ride, upright, stable a luxury car of bikes, the Bullitt is a fast sports car. It feels wobbly at first with a turning radius smaller then UA. But in basic principle they handle a lot a like although you can see the front wheel on the Bullitt which is a bit distracting. 

The bike is a whip though; fast and light when using it. I actually turned off the assist because it felt too fast for my test ride. This particular build had a basic sized plywood box. My two kids could both fit for sure. With legs intertwined could fit as they got bigger as well. 

I didn't find it as comfortable as the UA for us. I actually think it is ideal if your kids are toddler + because there are a couple ways for bigger kids to ride even with smaller box. I know if we were to buy a second cargo bike it would be a rough choice between the Edgerunner or Buillitt. 

Based on J's smiles though I think she would be pro Bullitt.
