Folder Cargo Bike Thread

Well the long cold dark days are here so I need some cheering up!...

I thought I'd start a thread about folders carrying silly big loads - whether running errands or on tour. If you have any pics to share in this vein throw 'em up here....

To get the ball rolling.

Ok, since you ask... and I've only posted this picture in two different threads so far, I think it could use a bit more exposure

It's pretty sad, but I've sold enough bike stuff this year that I can't recall what was in the box. My guess is a bike frame/fork.

I don't know. With a box, I'd be worried about heel strike. Although I have heard that in Europe all boxes now are equipped with beveled edges to prevent such a problem.

The view's not great, but on the front rack is a 25 lb bag of oranges I bought from a corner vendor on my way home from the Christmas tree lot.

Happy Christmas!
