    FYI my phone has no clue how to deal with that. Could you post a YouTube link or something?

    I've seen one at the showroom of The Daily Rider. It seems pretty big in size. If I were to buy one, I'm not sure where I'd park it at my employer's location. General Services Administration owns the complex and as far as I can tell, they are not interested in providing bicycle storage facilities to Agency employees. For this sort of bicycle, I may be forced to park in a garage parking space, and even put a proper Agency parking permit tag on the bike.

    I also have a gripe with Vimeo-hosted movies. They are not closed captioned so I miss the dialogue in this movie entirely.

    Not sure which "one" you mean. There are lots of cargo bikes. Most are the same width as a normal bike, but longer. On some, it can be difficult to find a place to lock the frame to a rack, but the rear triangle usually works just fine. I usually just use a frame lock on the box bike (the one that looks like it's part wheel barrow), which means I can park most anywhere.

    Thank you! I must have been thinking of the Yuba Cargo Bike. The movie posted in this thread is showing different brands of cargo bicycles -- there are a lot of them as you say -- but my mind zeroed in on the Yuba simply because I saw one at The Daily Rider. I think they had two Yuba models in the showroom that day.

    Even yuba has 3 basic frame types, and is coming out with a 4th this year. (Boda =midtail, Mundo = big wheel long tail, Curry = small wheel longtail, and the new Marche box bike, for those playing along at home)

    I don't see anything to click on either. iMac, safari browser.

    I tend to use Google Chrome for most (but not all) of my browsing. Chrome version 53.x does show the Vimeo movie properly and you can play it. Firefox 49.x at least displays the movie embedded in the post, but it probably needs the very latest version of Adobe Flash Player installed on the system in order to play the movie. (Chrome has Flash embedded in it.)

    So my suspicion is simply that Safari, even in the latest and greatest version, simply does not support embedded video streams. I too am a happy Mac user, and my Safari is at Version 10.0 (11602.1.50.0.10).

    Solution: use Chrome or Firefox. Then you'll see the movie.
