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.

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.
