    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..
