    Great Potential for Gear Hauler

    Could be the coolest, easiest way to pack all your LF gear to hard to reach sites.

    This might be fine for moving a carcus about. I personally would not put a child or valuable cameras on it.
    A loss of footing or loosing your grip on the handle could be catastrophic.

    if it had two fold down legs so it could stand upright...

    otherwise you'll have to lay it down...on top of your camera gear...when you stop

    It looks like there is an optional front safety bar that would prevent things from going horribly wrong if you let go and the balance point is forward instead of back. Not sure going down stairs with a kid on it, safety bar or no, is a good thing, however.

    Yes. The children sit higher than if they were on a bicycle. I wonder if the manufacture, a bike maker, promotes helmets in their regular business.

    Two fold down legs sounds like a good idea.

    Maybe a hunting bi-pod?

    The one wheel is problematic for me. I'd orefer something like aDIY- golf-bag cart or something store-bought like this:

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    Don't like it, sorry. Single wheel is too wobbly and top-heavy for lugging any gear with any kind of "worry free" attitude. Same goes to lugging kids with it.

    This is what I use with my 8x10 Wehman camera. I like it.
