Drive My Bike


Need More Space Than A Backpack Or Panniers?

Does it always seem like you need just a little more cargo space on your commute? Well maybe something like this is the answer…

CamperBike

A friend sent me this link to Kevin Cyr’s site, and at first I laughed, but then I realized how serious he is. Go to his site and take a look around. This guy has some interesting ideas on mobility and habitats. He’s also got some nice paintings.

This summer I’ve been using a backpack for my cargo since I’ve been riding Jake’s speedy road bike. The temperatures are starting to drop though, and that means packing a lot more clothing to stay warm, so soon I’ll be going back to my trusty Trek with a rack and panniers.

Yes, the Trek is a lot heavier than Jake’s road bike, and the fully loaded panniers make it even heavier… but I bet it is a lot lighter than Kevin’s camper bike! :-)

Thanks for the tip! Awesome picture – made me think of this http://cyclorama.net/viewArticle.php?id=252 hehe! What can’t you fit on a pedal-powered vehicle… there’s also this new thing the ‘human-car… heard of it? Its extremely expensive though, unlike the other examples – think I’ll stick with rickety and homemade!
