Todd Fahrner [Clever Cycles] recently completed a ~200mile camping trip in the mtns with his family using two Stoke Monkey equipped longtail bikes. He has a write up here and photos here. He used the two electric assist systems to help get these big bikes up some very steep mountains. This allowed a family tow tackle a challenging ride that would not have been possible if they had to pedal the entire way. For folks that have partners who aren't hardcore cyclists this might be just the solution to get your other half out on the road with you.

My ulnar nerve injury on the Dempster motivated me to revamp my Big Dummy's bar padding. The primary new addition is a set of modified Ergon Grips. As you can see I had to chop off quite a lot of the right grip to allow it to fit on the bar with the Rohloff shifter. I also added a double layer of cork tape [camouflage of course!] to the other portions of the bars. Time will tell if this solves the problem, but I'm hopeful.
