Cheers Bluenote1553, once your muscles get used to it an SS is alright for the hills as long as they are short n' sweet and you can power up them before your lungs try and climb out of your chest - but i admit now that i've crept out of my 30's (gulp!) a few gears on a bike makes sense.
I like the matching accessories that come with the cargo bike above, are they an optional extra or do they both come as standard?
Unfortunately aside from the short climbs, there are some longer ones to contend with. I also begin my rides with descents as I live UP from everthing in my town so the ride home is what does me in. Lil bit past 40 myself and time seems to be catching me faster that I'd like. I'm sure there is a slight extra charge for the lovelies!
Like to see some pics of you new pack, pigmode. I have been throwing around the idea of a Seagull courier bag myself:
