Is there an "I carried this bike on my bike" thread ?  ;D
Did I post this, from the Comic years ago, previously? I have the same trailer, so I tried it once, although I preferred to remove the wheels and put them on wheel carriers:


'contraption' ::-)

part of the frame for a fruit cage.  I had to turn my right foot inwards to reach the pedal and the top of the frame kind of rested against my face.  This bike (which belonged to my father-in-law's step father) is ace for carrying stuff locally.  Glad I added a three speed when I replaced the back wheel (good call Brucey).  The thing is heavy.

Too quick to get a photo, but a guy just went past on a fully milk-crated bicycle, with a granny-trolly bodged up as a trailer and a folding step-ladder sticking out of the top of his rucksack.

And a closer-up shot:


She posed for this umpty times, quite the rock star of velo-portage is our Nikki. More realistically, it's a demonstration of the utilitarian value of butterfly bars.
An ungovernable laughter, a joyous agitation which makes the summer stretching before you seem like an unrolling canvas on which you might draw those first rude pure strokes that are free. (Capote)

I carried a rack on my rack. And yes, those are spare bars (x2) poking out of the pannier.

"Hi, is the fridge still for sale?"

"Yeah. Buyer collects though. You got transport?"

"Yeah no problem..."

Impressive cycling but a rather sad story.

Three bags of compost, the one up front was a bit much.

Oh yes!

Here we go.

The trike is Rob's - a lucky find on eBay and I collected it last week with my trailer.  It's safely stashed in the SEEKRIT BUNKER and we're just hoping that Liz doesn't take a liking to it...

Having been used by 2 of my grand-children this rather splendid machine is still in pretty good condition and is FOR SALE .... they (with the other pair of children) are now using the fleet of Islabikes that I have invested in (I buy them - ebay etc - they use them and I then have them back to sell when they're grown out of)
