Did you get a windsock yet? Maybe it will help with traffic safety issues.

Cats just don't feel safe on a moving bicycle, no matter how much duct tape you use.

Probably the same thing that vipes did wrong. Tried to upload a pic that was too big. You can link to any size pic, but there's a limit on how big you can upload, I think about 39K. Shrink the pic, edit your post, and re-upload.

Hey Blazing Pedals,

Is your home built adjustable as to size of rider? I'm interested in building something like it, only using a 27" tire road bike as the basis. Also, do you have some more pictures that would help one to build?

Thanks.

Attached, my EZ-Rider

It's the standard BikeE bag, with a custom strap so that it's attached snuggly and permanently to the top bar on the BikeE seat. It's a nice enough bag, with an aluminium "rib" inside to maintain its square shape. There's a review of the thing here: http://www.simplecom.net/poleary/bik...g%20review.htm. I'm not sure if you can still find it these days.

Fine looking machine. Tell me, looking at the seat, it looks very similar to the BikeE seat: am I guessing correctly that you're after the same kind of bag? If so, with a little creativity, you could get a square-ish bag, punch holes at the top to pass a lanyard to attach it to your seat's top cross-member, and bend a metal rod to go inside, ala BikeE bag, and get a very similar result. I can make a drawing of the thing for your if you want.

PPC,

Yes... I was hoping to simply get a nice size pannier to clip to the back of the seat. Not sure if the tubing that supports the seatback is thin enough though - it is about 3/4 inches diameter.

I like your idea though, maybe I will just need to rig something in a more "permenant" attachment to the seatback.
