Many thanks to P down at the model shop for passing on this link. Elian Veltman and Wilco Drost of Elian Cycles in Utrecht, Netherlands are developing a rather sweet looking cargo bike featuring forkless steering and it looks rather good. Their forkless steering is conceptually similar to what we had proposed but much smaller and, let's face it, much prettier. I am in two minds about this. On the one hand I am bummed that somebody has beaten us to it but also gratified that the concept works and relieved that somebody who clearly knows what they are up to has seen fit to solve this problem with such elegance and skill. Elian & Wilco, keep up the good work!
