This Space for Rent

Fixie shopping

Gone shopping

Down to the Big Big Store for bananas, mandarins, cereal, and a couple of cans of black beans. The porteur-width VO handlebars I put on this machine (as well as a shorter Mutant) mean I can fit two grocery bags side-by-side on the front rack and still have breathing room for my hands.

I’m going to put a size huge Wald basket (the half-height 1392 that Rivendell sells) onto this machine so I don’t need to immediately sew up a huge porteur bag to carry groceries in. And since we’re in the plague years, most of the stores I go to won’t let you use your own bags anyway so a Wald basket + grocery bags + some sort of tarp is just as good.
