    That's actually probably the best way to carry that basket while riding a bike.

    What's wrong with (D) and (F)? For practical transportation, a 'mountain' bike (equipped with racks and semislick tires) is much more useful than your typical 'road bike' with its skinny tires, high, hard seat, and dropped over handlebars. And kickstands are quite useful if you don't want to lay your bike on the ground all the time.

    I don't think his quiz was meant to be taken so seriously.

    That said, road bikes are better for roads (duh).

    Reminds me of the time I had no choice but to transport a heavy desktop PC (less monitor) by securing it to the back of my backpack with heavy cord... Where there's a will, there's a way.
    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    Not likely. Maybe a picture of a person who looks like a skid row bum typing away on a laptop while sitting on a park bench and ogling the babes would be the Real Deal Coyote.
