Riding with an extra load
#1
I often help out a friend who deals greatly in track/fixed gear/singlespeed bikes and bike parts. He has called me asking for help to transport parts ranging from a few cranks or handlebars all the way up to bike frames. Just wondering if anyone else has biked with large loads (such as a bike frame) and how they have dealt with it. We have used messenger bags, hiking daypacks, even bags equipped with skateboard carry straps to carry wheels. Has anyone else done this or is it just me and my friend? And if you have, what was your chosen method to carry the load?
Aloha

I find it hard to imagine one doing 20 mph safely with a trailer...though it would be quite amusing

just keep the front end heavier than the backend, something like 2/3rds of the weight on the bike, and only 1/3 on the trailer.

and if you got steep down grades, get a trailer with brakes - yes they make bike trailers with surge brakes.
