Bamboo grocery rack and used tire fender....

Yep.

This is just to get the feel of a loaded bike. I will buy real racks and luggage when I have money, for now I think this is a bad ass grocery cart / day-long tourer. If it warms up this weekend I am thinking of loading up my camping gear and heading to the Blue Ridge Mountains (my special place). I am attaching bags to the undersides of the crate so I can put heavy, not so delicate things in there to lower the center of gravity. The crate will be for fragile and squish-able things like bread and bags of chips.

Comments please.
