    So first off let me say the cycle rack is amazing. With 4 bungee cords at all time, I can strap down anything (at least so far!)



    one thing I am usually concerned about is trying to strap down small things. What I am curious about is if there is some sort of "fanny pack" or any other attachment people can permanantly affix (but take off if needed) to it to carry smaller items?



    Sometimes I picture just strapping down a plastic milk carton on the top and just throwing grocery bags in there, but that seems tacky.



    Thanks all!

    Tell yer O.C. friends it's "Shabby Chic", and roll widdit



    The hardest part is knowing which markets and liquor stores to hang out behind in order to get the proper color selection. "Shabby chic" or not, failure to color-coordinate is gauche and inexcusable.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Ha! I have a milk crate but it has only been on the bike twice. I use a bungee net and it hasn't let me down yet. If you have really small things just roll em up in a plastic grocery bag and hook the "handles" of the bag onto one of the hooks.

    Duluth Trading will sell you a legal and unmarked milk crate in one of several coordinating colors.

    Back in 1988 I got 7 to 11 in the state pen for illegal use of a "milk crate". Lucky me, I got out on good behavior after 3yr's as I was able to get the Wardens TW running again. Gerry



    PS

    if I ever get another job, likely I won't have time to post this 'stupid' stuff.
    Take care my Friend.........

    I have a Pelican case my brother gave me mounted to the cyclerack. The main reason I got it was for some lockable storage. It also works well for the small stuff, and I have a bungee net over that for larger items. Others have salvaged a variety of cases from power tool cases to luggage, etc. You can find cases that are tasteful if you look around. Milk crates are way handy and versatile, though.
    My handle is B-dub, I ride a T-dub, and drive a V-dub.

    WTF! Are you serious? Everyone on a moped around here has a milk crate strapped to the back.

    I built a set of panniers out of 50 cal ammo cans, bolted them to the cycleracks saddlebag hangers. Works great
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    Get some panniers, a fender bag, or a tank bag. I'd say a tank bag or small tailbag would be the best for things of that nature.
