The Clarkberg Family has moved to the cutting edge of transportation technology with the addition of a Stokemonkey electric motor to Rini’s Surly cargo bike. The motor came as part of a kit that Thea and Larry assembled in an afternoon. The motor really opens up what is possible to accomplish with a bike (and without a car). Yesterday Jasper “biked” a mile straight up Ithaca’s West Hill with Thea on the back of the bike (and Larry panting alongside on his road bike). The Stokemonkey is very practical and extremely fun.
