Topeak rack and MTX topbox with fold down side bags.

I rode to my local Halfords, bought them and sat outside the shop fitting them with my Aldi £4.99 tool kit in the sunshine yesterday. Nice!

Very neat and I can now use the bike for minor shopping trips, I reckon I can get 6 cans of lager in the top box and no end of crisps in the side bits.

I'm starting to find the ride to work too easy so I wanted to add more weight :lol:
Giant Escape M1....
Penny Farthing
Unicycle
The bike the Goodies rode
Pogo Stick
Donkey on Roller skates.......OK I'm lying, but I am down to one bike right now and I feel bad about it,

    thank goodness.

    I find an average jersey will accomodate 4-6 scotch eggs or mini pork pies too.

  • I am having to lift my leg up higher when getting off the bike. I stopped at a busy road today and got off to cross but my foot caught the bag. I didn't fall over but I did look like a clumsy censored .
