Hey LeslieHapablap! Are you still in Munich today? The hash is again in the city, near the Donnersberger Brücke, and pretty reachable. I'll probably go there for 4 p.m. — Zertrin 07:41, 14 September 2013 (EDT)

Hi Zertrin, thanks for the invitation. But I'm back in Innsbruck and just returned from geohashing in 47 11 :) Have fun up there in 48! --LeslieHapablap (talk) 09:57, 14 September 2013 (EDT)

Hallo LeslieHapablap. Danke für den Review meines Reports. Ich bin mir noch nicht so ganz sicher wie das hier alles läuft, aber anscheinend habe ich ja schon ein bisschen was richtig gemacht. Du schreibst bei deinem Edit "..., as I don't know if Hmpf is following the discussion page". Welche discussion Page meinst du damit? Hast du vll. generell noch ein paar Worte zu dem was man beachten sollte?

Schönen Gruß Hmpf

Hallo Hmpf, dein Report war super :) Schön geschrieben und alle Kategorien richtig. Mit der "discussion page" meine ich die Seite "discussion" die zu jeder Seite auf dem Wiki dazugehört (der Link dazu ist direkt über dem Titel). In diesem Fall also diese Seite. Dort habe ich bereits vorgeschlagen, dass du das "Last man standing" achievement bekommen solltest. Mit "follow" meine ich, dass man Seiten beobachten kann: man klickt oben in der Leiste auf "watch" und bekommt bei Änderungen der Seite eine Benachrichtigung, wenn man das in den preferences entsprechend eingestellt hat. Gewöhnlich, wenn ich eine Expeditionsseite online stelle, setze ich sie auch direkt auf diese watch-Liste. Wenn Leute dann Kommentare zu der Expedition hinterlassen bekomme ich das sofort mit.
Da du nicht auf meinen Vorschlag reagiert hast, bin ich davon ausgegangen, dass du ihn gar nicht gesehen hast. Deshalb hab ich das achievement dann eigenmächtig eingefügt ;)
Ansonsten weiterhin viel Spaß beim geohashen, hoffentlich kannst du bald von neuen Expeditionen berichten. --LeslieHapablap (talk) 13:57, 16 October 2013 (EDT)

sorry for breaking your user-page

Turns out there was a breaking change. Fixed now. The breaking change is this one in case you're interested. --joannac (talk) 02:31, 25 November 2013 (EST)

Thanks for fixing my expedition report!

I have no idea what went wrong, but thank you for fixing it!

Sorry for not answering sooner, but I noticed your message just now. I decided to get the cargo bike when I knew I was gonna stay on paternity leave for about two years. To tell you the truth, the main reason was that the cargo bike simply was cooler, and I immediately fell in love in it. Ok, there are some other pros and cons.

1) You can transport as small baby as you want, because you can fit a car safety crib on the bike.
2) The cargo bike handles much better than a bike and a trailer. On cornering, you don't have to worry about speed. It's easier to avoid potholes because you can see the front wheel, the back wheel is in normal position, and there aren't those extra two wheels of a trailer. Of course one-wheel trailers are almost like cargo bike in this respect.
3) Due to long wheelbase and weight, the grip on the back wheel is incredible. Important if you drive on slippery roads or steep gravel ascents.
4) The customization options are endless. Not only regarding the number or age of childs transported, but if you keep your child transportation devices quickly removable, you can transport big cargo, too. Of course you can load shopping bags into trailer too, but bigger objects cause problems.
-1) Handling the cargo bike when parking requires some upper body strength.
-2) With a trailer it's easier to go shopping with a sleeping baby. Just park the bike, detach the trailer, put walking wheels on and walk to the store. More difficult with a cargo bike. Kind of works when the baby is still small enough to be in a docking station -type car crib.
-3) A trailer you can also use on cross-country skiing or running. (That's why we also have a trailer:)
-4) The most obvious: a trailer can be used with different bikes. Good because both parents can have the optimal bike for them to pull the trailer, or you can use different types of bikes according to the weather, terrain etc.
-5) A cargo bike is more expensive, if you already got a good bike for pulling the trailer.

That's all I can think of now.

Wow, thank you for this detailed evaluation! Probably we will go with a trailer first, because my sister now needs a trailer for two kids, and we can have her old one. Compared to that, buying a new cargo bike would be too expensive (and we also don't have that kind of space for both at the moment). But I will keep my eyes open, and if I ever get my hands on a good deal that would be great. Cargo bikes seem to be more popular in Scandinavia, I never saw one like this with two wheels in Germany or Austria, but a few days ago when I was visiting Denmark I did. --LeslieHapablap (talk) 07:26, 3 November 2014 (EST)
Of course it makes sense to use second-hand gear whenever it is possible. Denmark, or at least Copenhagen, is the cargo bike capital of the world. In Netherlands they are pretty popular, too. In Finland, not so much yet. That is one reason you have to buy everything new here, the second-hand market is just developing. Tilley (talk) 12:17, 3 November 2014 (EST)
