Porteur Rack

Does anyone have a Porteur rack on their bike, if so, what types of things do you put up front? Do you have a porteur bag or just latch a backpack/messenger?

Have a Pauls flatbed.. It gets all sort of stuff thrown in it when I ride that Bike.. max20 #

Ideally, as the VBQ readers learned, the real French Newspaper Porteurs used the bikes to ride fast
thru Paris , (& other cities)
from the publisher to the street Kiosk, where the seller stayed. hot off the presses , literally ..

Low trail, larger rake. suited the heavy load. on the fork..
