OK FORD when are you going to come out with a CMAX Truck? It is very obvious fotomoto needs one. LOL :)

Another busy weekend with several visits to the home and garden store:

 

30 cubic feet of mulch (two trips for a total of 60 cu.ft!)

 

20140526_091351_zpsplbr6c4n.jpg

 

 

45 paver stones

 

20140526_145402_zpsot2ooypp.jpg

 

@ 20 lbs each=900 lbs!  Tires at 50 psi.  Even so, I still got 53.1 mpg on the way home!   :worship:

More mayhem in your C-Max Foto !  900 pounds, great mpgs, fantastic - forget the Urban Activity Vehicle; it is certainly an Urban Assault Vehicle in your hands.  I fear significant work at both ends though.  I have always appreciated the 'square' end opening.

Our "haul" for Memorial Day... Wooster OH to Burlington VT. The cocoon is a lingerie cabinet, and there's a larger dresser in the car. Once thing you can't see is my license plate, which moved to the caboose for the duration.

 

HAve fun,

Ahh, now I know why you asked me for measurements.  Well you won't see this everyday!  LOL

 

What is that blue cable looking thing next to the keel?  Are these RC'ed?

On an executive course ;)  ...in jest :rockon:  :congrats:

 

By the way: since i know you go to the range alot and sometimes may NOT carry the whole bag - look under the rear seats. You'll see there is a nice gap where you can slide at least 4 or 5 clubs up to a 3 wood underneath it.  Keeps the clubs away from the views of any would be thieves but as long. And as you don't carry any 300+ lb golfing buddy who needs to sit in the back seat, it's a great place to store the clubs in the car.

 

The CMax has amazing holes & gaps to put our sh*t. :flirt:  it.

I never said how many holes I played. ;)

I rarely have anyone in the back seat, so I keep my rear seats down. I cut a piece of 1/8" thick hard particle board, stuck some Velcro hooks on the smooth side to hold it in place and keep that covering the seat backs to protect them when I slide my clubs in and out. I load my push cart on top of the battery and that's covered with a Ford OEM cargo cover. I had a set of clubs stolen from a station wagon many years ago, so I don't leave them in the car anymore. I thought it might provide better air flow and get A/C air to the battery, so I keep the rear seats down all the time. It's been pretty cool here so far and I haven't needed the A/C yet so the battery has stayed well within it's target temperature range, also perfect weather for golf/biking/walks, temps in the 70's and no humidity... nice.

LOL, no worries. I keep my seat up all the time and lay my bag across the seat. My pull cart goes in the back. Other than that, I never have my bag in the car unless its play day. Never take the chance.

 

Hit it well :rockon:

My tadpole recumbent (WizWheelz TerraTrike)  also fits snugly in the back of my C-Max.

Which one? We looked at a Rover 8... and would have purchased it and a trainer in place of a stationary, had my wife been able to use it. I liked the extensibility to tandem, seat height, weight capacity, but not the lack of low gears, the high hand position or weight of a steel frame. The top chain is asking for stains, and any boom length change requires chain length adjustment - very hard for two mis-matched people to use the same one.

 

Mine's a Catrike Villager, 34 lb., to answer Paul's question. My only excuse is that I had tried a HP Velo Scorpion some years back, after hearing lots of good things about the Sun EZ-3 USX... finally tried a USX and it is as heavy and long as it looks, and I didn't revisit the $4K Scorpion. 

 

So far, riding around my somewhat hilly neighborhood for now, my legs get tired, but I'm not out of breath... 30 speeds is a wonderful thing, as well as the inability to fall off no matter how slow you go! Top gear downhill gets scary-fast real quick! (Of course, the hill's good for 30mph by itself!)

 

HAve fun,

Frank

 

PS need to plug the BicycleMan, too.
