Cargo Bike Corner

Whats another KG?




Since making the change from 'recreational cyclist' to 'every day get-around cyclist', I 've made the discovery that weight doesn't really matter all that much.Well, not in the flatlands of Melbourne anyway. A bicycle basket soon gave way to a full scale front porteur rack, an old champagne crate was added to the rear end.Mudguards? who would've thunk? My latest addition is this beautiful porteur kick stand from Velo Orange. Sweet. I can now park right in front with a full load of groceries withought having to worry about bike rack availability . Anyone seen any nice old fashioned chain guards out there?
