I've just joined the group and added this.


That looks like the ideal accessory for long Audaxes!

There are some great photos on there, and an awful lot of Yuba Mundos and Xtracycle Free Radicals (and Surly Big Dummy's).  I was very impressed by the guy who was towing the huge load of metalwork to be recycled!

The few photos of dogs on trailers and in panniers reminded me of Rastus, the motorcycling kiwi cat from a few years back, who used to stand on the bikes fuel tank.  He even had a small leather helmet, goggles and bandana!  I can't see Talisker being overly impressed by any of these ideas. :-\ ;D

Actually, it is rocket science.

mostly luggage rather than passengers.  Sadly no-one took a photo when I had my mum on the back of my bike (the roadster fixed gear with BMX pegs) and whe doen't  plan to repeat the experience.  I've also managed to take both the guys on it at once.
Luckily it's flat around here.
me thinks there should be a special category for normal-tail (as opposed to longtail bikes)
In the dark, all views are the same.

This evening I managed not one, not two, not three but FOUR bicycle boxes on the back of the Yuba!

Ah, ha, ha!

Actually, it's only a green bungee.  But I was farting about with off-camera flash and it's made it 'pop' a bit...

Tasmania? I think you'll be within a v short distance of my cousin Vaughan who used to cycle all around Oz, Europe and Americal. Unfortunately I don't have his contact - only ever met him once, and he's about 20 years older than me - otherwise I'd tell him to go along and watch you!

Pah, I must endeavour to carry more interesting stuff with my bike.

The best I've done were:

a) About 70kg of sealed lead-acid batteries, which fitted unremarkably in panniers, but were the subject of much disbelief when I got them to the local household waste site (which is, naturally, uphill from here).

b) A stepladder.  Not sure if it counts because I discovered that, having strapped it to the bike, it prevented me from turning left, so ended up wheeling it most of the way.  Unfortunately it was chucking it down with rain so it didn't occur to me to take a photo.

Do you think that 12V DC EL wire would work from a dyno hub? I'm thinking of the Dun Run 2011  ;D

Video of my better half (5'2) carrying me (6'2), our 5yr old and 1yr old.

A couple of weeks back I did 14 miles with a 105kg colleague and 3 weeks worth of luggage. Probably not more than 125kg.

Given some electronics.  Might not leave much power for your lights, thobut.

But anyway, battery power is preferred: battery pack straps to the hub, EL wire weaves between the spokes at the rim - light up wheels!

I'm sure there'll be someone along in a minute with photos of Charlotte's penny...
