Pedicab for hire, right here in River City

The bike rack/parking area on Grastvedt Lane adjacent to Domino’s Pizza, always crowded, has a new addition: Griffin Gears Pedicab.  The signs on the trike say "For hire – Tips Only" but there’s no contact info.

Anyone know anything about it?

Pedicabs (AKA cycle rickshaws) are evidently common in big cities.

    I would guess that the pedicab belongs to a Carleton student named Griffin who lives in the Central Block Building (aka Rare Pair apartments).

    I know not of the Pedicab owner, but that two story messenger bike, looks suspiciously like a Stew Moyer bike.

    I chatted with the owner of Griffin Gears Pedicab today and it’s Griffin Williams who I blogged about back in 2009 for his work with the Carleton Student Organic Farm… not to mention his weird first name.

    It sounded like he’s ramping up his business for this spring.
