    My cargo rig: 1976 Raleigh Sprite with an old and crooked front basket. The rear baskets were replaced by a rack as they were too flimsy. Between the front basket, rear panniers, and a backpack I should be able to haul a decent load of groceries.

    Done enough to post it.

    1987 Schwinn Woodlands rescued from a dumpster

    2.2" WTB Graffiti SF tires
    SKS P-65 fenders (front needs a bridge section because it won't clear the forks!)
    Velo-Orange Tourist bars
    Oury grips
    New Falcon friction shifter (front)
    Trans-It rear rack
    New cables
    Nashbar platform/SPD combo pedals
    New cassette and chain

    Total spent, under $125. I'm ordering a CETMA 7-rail front rack this week, and eventually putting a generator wheel and twin B&M IQ Cyo lights up front; but all in due time. It works well as is.

    Clifton - The Schwinn is looking good although I would worry about that crank being able to take the kind of torque you can lay down.

    All in all... very very nice.

    Loaded up at the grocery store... yeah that's ice on the sidewalk

    Here's mine and my fiancee's road bikes that we've outfitted for getting groceries. When we're feeling a bit more "fancy" we'll switch out the baskets for panniers.





    Not sure what material hers is, but mine's steel so it can take the weight easily enough. I can also take the rack and baskets off without too much trouble for longer rides.

    Here's my Kona Blast. It was my first commuter, but it lost it's job since I put my Cross Check. I now use the Kona for hauling my kiddie hauler full of groceries.
