How to transport standard sized pallets on a Bakfiets.

This is a lot less wobbly than it looks: once the bike was moving it showed no tendency to tip. Keeping it moving up hills proved hard work though. Rolling downhill was fine except that the pallets tried to move forwards. Next time I’ll have to loop the rope around the steering coloumn to hold them back.

This is probably not reccomended by Workcycles of course: Bakfietsen are meant to shuttle children and the occasional plasma screen TV down nice clean cycle paths, not haul heavy lumps of wood along dirt roads.

I think I need one of these.
