I love riding with big stuff. I feel a sublime satisfaction when moving big things via bike instead of by car.
I sold a mountain bike frame and a tube amplifier head on ebay, and both things went in big boxes for shipping. Then I needed to get the stuff to the shipping store a mile away. The shipping store is on my way to work, and I don’t have a parking pass, so I loaded everything up on my Burley trailer.
The vacuum tubes, separately packed, are on top of the tube amplifier head. The tall box holds the bicycle frame.
Riding with this much weight requires more effort, but not as much as I’d have thought. In retrospect, disc brakes would’ve tamed my descent of the Denton St hill, but I managed to stop before the stop sign at the bottom.
Having reached the shipping place (on University), I sent my stuff off and rode to work with the empty trailer.
And of course, not wanting to make an empty trip back home from work, I stopped by a coworker’s house and retrieved some fence posts that he didn’t need.
100 lbs, 100 degree heat, it’s easier than you think.
