Open Source Front Rack


There is a bread factory near the office and I walk by this stack of bread trucks all the time. I nabbed one the other day and began tinkering with it. What I'm after is a light, cheap front rack. I've got a design in mind, I'll keep you posted as to how it goes. Really thinking I want something large enough to set a large pizza on, but strong enough to carry a few cases of beer.

Oh yeah, it's Friday.

a few cases? i've carried pounders on my porteured crosscheck and wouldn't want more weight than that. handling gets all wonky.

agreed, steering will be less than ideal. I carried 2 30 packs in a wald basket, and it was tough. I'm planning on running a 24 inch front wheel, and getting the center of gravity a bit lower. that should help a bit.
either way, better than driving.
