If you're gonna carry a heavy load like that, that's a very good bike to do it on.

I've carried a week's worth of groceries on the cruiser before (huge backpack and rear-wheel side-baskets), but that's a bit more meat than I've ever tried to transport at one time.

Or maybe not. How long has it been since I tried to carry someone sitting on the handlebars or standing on the rear axel nubs?

Have you considered a Burley?

Better than the deer strapped to the roof of a rusted out Pacer that I sighted here a couple of years ago! Nice work.

Well, I can't take credit, it is not me but still very amusing!
