One time you told me that the rack is the best thing in the world....

You're not going to carry that ****,
You're going to put it on the rack!"


Trunk pack LOL +1

for realzies. The trunk pack might not be the best thing in the world (I have a kind of love-hate relationship with it), I will defend the rack to my death. The amount of things I have strapped to that rack... Its not so good for chinese or japanese takeout though because they use a ton of styrofoam containers and stack them up tall. My bungee cords just flatten them down.

I was probably quite safe when I told you that.

Nothing ruins the mood more than drunkenly crashing face first into said cute girl. The bars are seductive...the rack is surefire steady.

My rack isn't strong enough for regular girls. I gotta find myself a model, or an appropriately strong rack. My last girlfriend tried to ride on my handlebars once. Jeez was that tough! we gave up after about a kilometer when we turned onto college and almost got killed by cars. It works way better on cruiser bikes than it does with brakeless track bikes with the bars set low. I pretty much had my face and neck crammed into her back and couldn't see a thing.

for realzies

PS. was late to work today because I slept in and then I got a free lunch but had to listen to a presentation on cubicles from steelcase and I spilled food on my pants. Dry cleaning ahoy!

You guys should try dragging skateboaders around, its like gearing up about a dozen teeth but if your on a slight downhill you can FLY. With two people holding on to the back of my bike we broke 50k going down Huron from college to Dundas.

I drag my buddy around on his board sometimes. Usually drunken times. You gotta pay attention to the road texture though, as a few times we went from really nice new smooth asphalt to really old crusty abrasive asphalt at high speeds and he almost lost it! I managed to drag him up the sidewalk on the bathurst hill one time too. Luckily he lives south of st. clair now though.

PS. Wes, I know about that thing, but its freaking intense! Way more work and money than carrying somebody on the back should take

I used to double a buddy on my rack all the time. Blackburn 3 stay model. I wouldn't go for miles but down the block to the bar was never a prob.

I have some 'Trace' rack I pulled from a carcas I found in the shed of my old house. The stays/struts on it are already bent, and the hardware is dubious at best. Its alright for hauling stuff, but it would break in a second with an actual person on it.

It would be cool to get pegs and a heavy duty rack for my mtb though.

About as informative an answer as you could want. Shiz should go in to politics.

Nah in politics you just answer the question you wished you'd been asked instead of the question you were actually asked.
