Shopping cart bike

I finally got around to a little housekeeping on the MAKE blog and added a bicycle category (we’re adding the old posts to it now)… so, in celebration of this new section here’s a shopping cart bike… Mike writes – “I found this modified bike/shopping cart combo outside my new apartment. The front is a Kroger shopping cart, the back is an old Schwinn bike. Once it showed up by the dumpster, we had to try and and see how well it worked.”Link.

If you have bicycle projects, send’em our way using the submit a link!

    I really like this shopping cart bike. It is too easy to bring goods with this bike. I am unable to see the breaks. Is there any mechanism to stop this bike. so that we can easily avoid from accidents.
