Goodbye Rickshaw

The rickshaw was sold last month (June 2016). It has a new family to serve. It really didn’t get the action after the Main Street pedicab showed up on the scene a bit over six years ago. The Colorado made Main Street is just so much more capable.

Rickshaw and Dahon
The rickshaw on the last mission involving me. The Dahon got me home after dropping the rickshaw off to its new home.

The new owners wanted the rickshaw delivered, so I did that and put a Dahon folding bike on the back to unfold and ride home. I’m bummed the rickshaw is gone, but it really did sit a bunch of the time. Our garage seems so much larger now.

Would I buy the Chinese rickshaw again, knowing what I know now? Absolutely. It got me started as a Rickshawala. I wouldn’t have forked over the money it takes to get a used Main Street pedicab on day one. That stated, I seriously doubt I’ll ever go back to an eastern grade rickshaw. It’s nice to have a solid frame, fantastic brakes, and all those speeds.
