Good starter project. Thanks.

Since this is a good beginner project, good for kids too, always nice to include hints about finding parts/materials. Let us know that those types metal plates are standards pieces in hardware stores, or as salvage in thrift type shops. Good to explain that the size of the metal plates is not critical, but that the length of the screws/bolts is since they are close to the tire. And it would be helpful to point out that mounting the plates at right angles to the length of the bike would be be stabler than lined up with the bike frame. Mounting milk crates is a very popular do-it-yourselfie for cyclers, so thanks again.
