Each summer I find and fall for 1 old rustic wooden box and then destroy it. They look great on the back of a bike but in order for it to be light enough to use they are often not that strong. This year I decided to build my own and my first attempt was a fail. I used the wood left over from my flower boxes but it is too heavy and not at all good for a bike. That said, it has been great riding around with it and forcing me to come up with solutions on how to make a big wooden box lighter but still strong and user friendly. The measurements have been made, the hardware bought and the trip to the lumber yard is occurring this weekend so photo and instructions to follow next Friday.
Final product……… “The Most Awesome Urban Sherpa Bike Box!”
