No way that I would wait that long for a bowl of ramen regardless of the shop’s rep. There are literally thousands of ramen-ten in and around Tokyo that likely serve great noodles and broth and the variations are dependent on the region. From Hokkaido to Niigata to Kyushu and every region in between boast their own unique ingredients. So, to say that single shop in Tokyo serves up the best ramen in the world is so out of touch.
About that, its a common issue with cargo bikes. Especially longtails, where the frame is longer. Its counteracted in part by putting heavy stuff in the front part of your double-long bags, so you don't create a pendulum with your front wheel being one end and your heavy tail all the way back in the rear.I too have noticed that having a large rear load bias produces poor stability and controllability in a lot of bikes (but not all) and can sometimes cause a frightful shimmy at high speeds.
HAH yeah thats what you're supposed to think. I take pictures when the bike is brand new, before I ride it for the first time. They're never that clean again.Man, you guys keep some immaculate fat bikes! Beauties, both of them.
Salsa Anything cage is along the same lines.Had a conversation at my LBS. Two key takeaways:
- These cages from Widefoot are lighter, less expensive, and still look cool.
- I'd probably be happier with the 5L cage bags rather than 3L. Certainly the 5L bags make it easier to carry the cookpot and camp kitchen and the sleeping pad.
If that works for you, great!My plan is to get and modify a pair of rigid Molle panels so I can choose different kinds of pouches to use. I don't like big bags that everything just gets dumped into. With Molle pouches I could do a large bag on one side, a tool kit, and pouch for my tumbler of ice tea and a first aid kit.
