A jean jacket, a cell phone, a camera, a small bag of tools, two New York State automobile license plates (more on that later), and four cement blocks.
Okay…so this is pushing the limit what what to carry on a bike. These blocks, the best I can figure weigh about 38lbs/17.2kgs each (152lbs/68.9kgs total)….it felt like more. I know it is claimed that the bike is able to carry more weight–and it likely has–but I’d be lying if I said it wasn’t difficult. I’ve carried bulkier loads than this but this was a bit nerve wracking to say the least. Often on this bike–because of the way it is built–I can’t tell the difference or am not aware of a load because it rides the same. Let me just say that I was fully aware that I was hauling a bike full of cement. Thankfully I only had to carry them about a mile and a half.
