Intro: Two Go

By cutting a plastic crate and using seven standard joint parts,
you can create your own dual-purpose cargo / extra bike seat*.
Doing so enables you the possibility to transport easily and environmental friendly,
while enjoying a mutual riding experience.

Here are the instructions  Now Do It Yourself!

(*for adult only!)

Step 1: Work Tools

Step 2: Materials

Step 3: Step 1

Start by carving the crate with the hand or electric saw, close to the crate basis, leaving only one of the crate's side walls.

Step 4: Step 2

After separating the 3 side walls left, reconnect them, using Brass hinge, two to each side. This will enable you to fold them when wishing to transport an extra rider.

Step 5: Step 3

The next step is to attach the window shutters using the rivet gun. Doing so enables you to replace your 3 side walls part back to the crate, when wishing to use it as cargo.Attach the small part of the shutter ("female") to the crate side wall (the seat's beck rest).

The shutter designated to front closing, should be installed to the crate basis (the rider's seat). Install the small part of the shutter ("female") to the basis.

Step 6: Step 4

In order to stabilize the seat, drill two holes, one in each side. Attach the screws and reinforce them using the nuts. Drill two extra holes in the crate basis, enabling an easy assembling of the seat.

Step 7: Step 5

The final and most creative step to make your own "Two Go" seat is the cushion, using the stapling gun, a board, a sponge and a piece of cloth of your choice. Attach the cushion to the seat, so it could be a beck rest to the driver when the crate functions as cargo, and a comfortable seat when wishing to transport an extra rider.

Step 8: How to Use

    Rivets are simply not right for this application. A load that is live, or flexing will destroy common rivets rather than hold fast.

    I don't know about where you are, but in Toronto this would be illegal. You're not allowed to ride 2 people on a bicycle unless it's an infant in a carriage behind you. Also, carrying 2 people like that is very rough on the axles and tubes. if you double ride people too often, you'll probably pop a tire, warp a rim, or bend an axle.

    NO DONT CARRY A PERSON OR CHILD ON THAT YOU ARE BETTER REMOVING IT ALTOGETHER & GETTING A TAG A LONG IT SECURES TO THE SEAT POST < EASY REMOVED > UNIT ITS A ONE WHEEL BIKE WITH HANDLES FOR A LITTLE PERSON WHO CAN HELP PUSH OR FOR CARGO YOU REMOVE CHAIN TO REDUCE WEIGHT PEDDALS.. & INSTALL A BAR FROM THE HANDLE BAR NECK TO THE SEAT POST CREATING AREA TO SECURE A SET OF SADDLE BAGS STRONG BAGS .. OR GET A KID TRAILER BUT MAKE THE BASE OF IT A LOT MORE STABLE AS IT RIDES CLOSE TO GROUND ... IM TESTING A SET OF BIGGER WHEELS FOR BETTER GROUND CLEARANCE

    i like this alot
    and the fact that you can have the second passenger pedal makes it more appealing
    what did you use underneath?

    you made the seat and cushion but what did you use to hold that up and support the 2nd passenger
    right i understand there arent two sets of pedals but isnt it possible to have the 2nd passenger pedal from the back seat while the front rider puts his/her feet up?

     It can be possible... you will have to build it yourself and try   ;-)

    This is pretty cool! I was looking for a way to puta passenger seat on my bike, but never saw anything where anyone actually did it. Very nice, but you could also just remove the rear rack and get a big banana seat. Anyways, very good!

    Does the average rear wheel rack support the weight of a person? Or do you have to be pretty careful about selecting the right one?

    that's a good question. the average rear can support it, but it recommended to use stronger one that made a specially for heavy wights, so you wont be limited

    A word of caution: Please clearly state somewhere that this seat is intended only for adult passengers. Any seat for children needs a guard to keep their legs and feet away from the rear bicycle wheel. When I was five years old, I was riding in a homemade bicycle passenger seat not nearly so nifty as this one, but also without any sort of wheel guard. My foot got caught in the spokes and my anklebone was shattered against the bicycle frame - the pain was absolutely incredible. I was in a cast for 3 months, and 40 years later there are still leftover bone chips in my heel that ache whenever my feet get tired. Please don't risk this.
