How to carry 80 feet of PVC on a bike
We needed 80 feet of 3/4" PVC from the local hardware store. Since it's pretty much impossible to park near it and the nearest available car was a couple miles away anyway we decided to carry it by bike.
All we used was a couple pieces of inner tube and Brian's Xtracycle. I bet I could've pulled this off on another bike I've recently adopted, but we wanted to be safe.
Speaking of safe, this rode pretty well, but the left turns were a little touchy as the front wheel would rub against the PVC. Good thing I was only going a few blocks.
Along the way guy in the street told us that that was how the Vietcong would attack them.
"They used to strap missiles to bikes! Heheh. Yeah, they kept getting us."
