Fahrner Family Longtail Camping Trip

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.

This is a great story from the Fahrner family. The = to +2000 mpg that Mr Fahrner worked out to evaluate the Stroke Monkey efficiency is well worth the read.
