Ya know, that really doesn’t look like a bad idea if you need to carry a lot of stuff short distances. Sure, you’re not going to go mountain-biking or racing on the thing, but it will hold a lot more than just a typical bike basket. And, I wouldn’t be surprised if the bike is more stable, as well, as long as all the fabricating was done properly.
Have you ever gone grocery shopping and had just a small pebble get under the wheel? Yeah, it stops a grocery cart pretty quick. I can see this guy riding along and then when one small stone gets under the shopping cart wheel… Face plant!!!!
Eh, it doesn’t totally stop the cart. And in this application, with the inertia of maybe 200 pounds of man and bike behind it, a pebble probably wouldn’t do much. But, yeah, this rig ain’t for rough terrain.
