    i like it. i like the idea of using the backpack as the storage compartment. ready to break out on a hike when you are ready to.

    ha, nice work! Never seen one like that, good thinking. Love the use of old stems. That hitch mount is trick. I think I have a project for the weekend now...

    I bet you could easily make a quick release crate for dogs/groceries/kegs. I second the High quality ones of these go for as much as 300-700 bucks.

    What's the weight w/o the pack? I bet it's lighter than the pricey ones

    Woah man! I'm shocked the arm/hitch going to the bike itself took that kind of load going uphill. NICE WORK
