This cyclist's use of only 3 cords is a classic:

Works for me. :-) I've already got the bungee chords (dollar store). Now to find a super cheap rear rack and freeish milk crate. :-)

In the pic, did you notice the double wound bungee cord around the seat-post??
That wrap is what tensions the whole deal and makes it all work. The crates locally are
all stacked up behind every Mini-Mart in town, lots of them. If anyone asks, tell 'em you bought the crate at a garage sale.. :mrgreen:

What I really like is the fact that for utility, it is not permanent and you can easily swing a leg over it.

That's theft, and makes me feel much better steeling your whole bike with my basket on it (which I might have given you for free if you had asked). If someone asks me, I just bought this bike at a garage sale. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
