After last week's experiment strapping a bike to my trailer box I thought I'd have a go at upping the ante and fitting my bike rack. managed to get a bike plus a wheelset on there, i reckon it'd take two bikes... got some odd looks  1

Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.

You'll be giving the UCI ideas.

First, the radio ban.

Then, they'll have the Directeur Sportives riding on one of these, six spare bikes strapped to the back, trying to keep up with the peloton.

Remember - you heard it here first  3

This appeals to me... Fancy a friendly contest to see who can raise the most eyebrows? I feel the Univega towing not only the tag-along but the trailer too  1

I'll have to see if I can find the photo of me and my housemate moving house by bicycle when we lived in Nigeria. We balanced the kitchen table on top of his bike, piled everything on top (including the three piece suite in the living room) and four of us then held on and wheeled it to the new house. It took two or three loads and we even shifted the bed frames and mattresses this way.
