    TWO bikes?




    Here's how I got the wife's new bike home!

    That's ingenious; good work!
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Looks totally sketchy. Glad that it worked though. How far did you have to ride with it?

    20 miles, so not as sketchy as it looks!

    It even handled a couple curbs and cutting across the grass. The hub didn't tie down well to this rack... not enough places I could tie it to, and the rack was not quite a good size... too wide for the flanges to sit down inside the slots, and too narrow for them to sit flat on the rack. I think it would have worked better with my old rack... more tie-down points I could have used.

    Yep, If it can be...tied on...hooked to...or otherwise fastened to a bike
    it can be moved to where you want it.!!
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    thats cool, I love it when people get creative when moving stuff, a month ago I saw a guy moving a rather large love seat with only a cruiser, dolly and few bungee cords.

    Here's a nice solution if you have an Xtracycle. Although, I suppose trying to carry another Xtracycle with an Xtracycle would require something.... er, Xtra.
