One of the other forums suggested I ask this question here.
I just equipped my old Schwinn World with a cargo rack. For the time being, I've bungeed a plastic crate to it for carrying stuff. Here's a link to some pictures:
One of the pics has a pool chair in it. I have two of them, and am trying to figure out a good way to take them to the pool without using a car. The pool has a bring-your-own-chair policy, so if you want a chair, you tote it with you. Not life or death, but it's nice to have one. The chairs aren't light, but should be far less than 50lbs together. That's supposed to be the rack limit.
The distance to the pool is 3/4 of a mile each way on rather flat terrain, which makes driving the car seem that much more silly. The pool also has a secure bike rack beside the building that houses the locker and shower facilities.
It might be possible to bungee the chairs to the crate somehow, but I'm not quite sure how to do it. I'm hoping someone might do this sort of thing alot on this forum. Any advice would be appreciated.
