I was faced with two options for my bike cargo needs - build and hitch a trailer or find another less cumbersome solution. Enter the Xtracycle
From the Xtracycle website:With a bike trailer, you'll leave it at home because you prefer the way your bike rides without it, then later wish you had brought it along.
Great, I'm sold! Except... College... Money.... Oh yeah, lackofcash-itus :( Here's my $10 solution for a great idea!
Sorry Xtracycle guys - At the moment, I just can't afford to pay for the engineering :(
