$2.00 Cargo Nets

For those of us without longtail bikes, who just have normal bikes with racks and baskets, cargo nets are great if you want to load a container above the rim or just if you want to keep something from bouncing up/out while riding.

FYI, Walmart is selling cargo nets for 2 bucks. I just picked one up. It's rather small and it's a triangle shape with only 3 hooks, but for 2 bucks you can't really complain. I think I paid 10 bucks for my last cargo net, and I had to special order it because none of the local bike shops had them in stock. That cargo net is bigger and better, but the little 2 dollar guy will no doubt still come in handy.

I have found that each of these budget nets fits perfectly into a plastic Skippy Peanut butter jar, which fits perfectly into a bottle carrier.
That way theyre always on my utility bike ready for use. Here's how I do it; http://www.bikeforums.net/utility-cy...y-cyclist.html

My solution is as pictured. Always available and configurable for any size package(s).

Cost =$0 as I have barrels of "Roadside Treasure" Bungis of all lengths and composition found along the road.
