    What Can You Carry on Your Bike?

    Besides my backpack, I can hold a camera and snap pictures (1/10 turn out ok) but I think this guy is the Chuck Norris

    Sweet. You gotta love human nature though. We are prob the worst animals on earth.
    Craigslist is the prime example.
    If its free or at a unheard of price & the product works, we go to giant leaps to get that jewel home. But if it doesn't there is very little effort to dispose of it properly.

    debbie downer your looking at this all wrong. why put a negative spin on an awesome situation.

    and why are we criticizing the beer guy and not pointing out the impracticality of all the other pics? a mattress on your head? bricks on your bike? those won't work in SF either...

    Barman, only you have the capacity to change that. You are the one that must accept responsibility to be the change. You have the power.

    I visited Uganda a few years ago. People were most carrying huge bundles of bananas and stacks of empty water jugs. Very impressive.

    I have been trying to find a decent way to strap a mere machete to my bike to clear overgrown trails.

    It's a good thing he saved weight by opting for the carbon fiber frame.

    sweet. I also hope he rides that bike after downing some of that beer. It may be drinking and riding but I doubt he'd kill anyone on a cruiser.

    320 for the kegs, he looks to be about 200, 520lbs ride.

    I'm 350 and stop fine on 180's, so 400Lbs would be fine for 203's (extrapolating the larger diameter rotor - 15%)

    I don't know how far you can actually push 180's, but with my belly on the seat I could still endo with Avid Elixir 1's, and I've since moved up to Zee, so I'd say there's room for more weight on a decent 180mm rotor/caliper setup, definitely ok for XC up to 400Lbs.

    For SF, 203's might work if you keep the speeds down (keep thermal transfer time high), but who would want to pedal a 60lb delivery bike back up hills that would seriously test the brakes even unloaded?

    Surley (IIRC) has a super large rotor for tandems.

    Licious,

    Not really "carry" but I have had various loads on this thing. My commuter. I have had many more than these two pictures. It's a beast, it's slow but it has been very useful.

    Actually spotted many bikes on the road. All skinny tires and most had large knobby tires which work best cutting through the slush.

    I went to the late show on friday night, on the way home at 2:30 am the was a guy on a bike in a middle of the storm, no lights, no helmet, a cigarette hanging out of his mouth and weaving into and out off the middle lane. Probably drunk They be crazy.
