Riding with Live Cargo

Two dudes, two bikes.

After I got done moving all my stuff into Masala, I had to return the trailer to Community Cycles.  Tim needed to work on his bike (and renew his membership…) so I gave him a lift out to the shop.  The Bikes at Work trailers aren’t really meant for hauling people… but with a capacity of 300lbs, they’re certainly capable of it.  I’d really like to have a decent setup for moving another bike around without the trailer.  A way to just hook the front end of the rear bike up to my rear rack, allowing it to roll on its own.  More photos below.

    The coolest “carrying bike by bike” method I’ve seen was on an Xtracycle. (Like this post from 303cycling.com: http://303cycling.com/coloradians-going-car-less-part-1)
    Those Bikes at Work trailers really are amazing.

    I find myself lusting after one of the new Surly trailers for the house. They’ve clearly taken a page from Bikes at Work, and I think probably one-upped them in robustness. I’ve also seen folks move a bike with an Xtracycle, by just putting the front wheel in one of the pouches, and letting the rear wheel roll on the pavement like a trail-a-bike. I tried this on my bike once… but without the long, low back end, it wasn’t gonna happen.
