Hauling Stuff with a Fixie
My girlfriend needed a few things carried to the LBMA this morning so I got recruited to help her out. I pulled out the Burley Flatbed and loaded it up. The large Rubbermaid and duffle bag just barely fit within the straps on the Burley. I usually take my BikeFriday on runs like this because I need the gears. However, the Long Beach Museum of Art was only a few flat blocks away so I decided to take out the fixie for some cargo duty. It worked fine, though I had to get use to not being able to raise my rear wheel to position my pedals.
Where there's a wheel there's a way.
