I was surprised it wasn't noticeably stinky- riding behind a trash truck is normally a nightmare on a hot day.

I think that this kind of bike-truck makes a lot of sense for a dense urban area. It can carry a lot, has no emissions, and most importantly can fit in a very small parking spot/ tight streets and alleys. One of my pet peeves are delivery companies that send 18 wheelers into dense urban areas. With their wheel size and huge blind spots, they're incredibly dangerous for pedestrians and cyclists.
I would love to see more businesses doing "last mile" delivery with bikes or hand carts like this.
