Step 1: Gather materials
Hex key set
A note on shopping carts: Please don't steal them. This one happened to be floating around our downtown area for over a week before I grabbed it. The bicycle is almost ten years old and still works fine but I just bought the bike shop in town so suddenly have access to plenty of cycling materials.
Step 2: Remove the handlebars and shopping cart handle
Step 3: Install the brakes
Step 4: Stabilize the forks
Step 5: Test ride
On test rides it does not corner well. Steering is very wide turns and sometimes the cart teeters on two of the wheels on one side. I'll definitely be playing around with the details. This will make a great rig to make trips to the post office for the bike shop. The cart bike will be a great addition to our town parades.
Please note that this is not the first cart bike. See some of my inspiration here and here.
