18-09-2009 Bucket Bike

Do you ever long for the days when you could carry around your toys and books in the basket of your bike? Well some clever folks in Salt Lake City have created an adult model of this concept: the Masden Cargo bike. Fitted with a basket that is able to hold 271 kg, you’ll be able to transport everything from books, groceries, a surfboard or even the kids! You can even have seatbelts installed to keep them strapped in. This is an environmentally friendly way to transport goods around the city.

It won’t put you out financially and yet it will keep your bicycle seat dry. Nothing can make your day like a dry bicycle seat (and we’re talking from experience here). Not just a pretty face and made out of waterproof nylon, these bicycle seat covers from German Tilo Ahmels not only protect the seat, but also add a bit of whimsy to the world of cycling and we could all use a bit of whimsy in everyday life. Even more importantly, the elastic band is long enough so you can knot it, preventing anyone from stealing it. Double bonus!
