Being able to carry stuff on your bicycle is a great way to make riding a bicycle the best way to get around. Rear racks are really easy to find (try the Bike Kitchen!), inexpensive, and simple to install on your bicycle.
Most of rear racks give you the ability to use a bungee across them in order to strap things onto it, the same can be done to front racks as well.
- Find a used intertube (they’re generally free and easy to find)
- Hook it around the rack mount tab on the lower portion of the rack
- Stretch it across to the other side of the rack
- That’s it, we told you it was easy!
