Wow, that box is huge. I bet it'll be entertaining in cross-winds.

The wind effect actually not too bad! If you've ever strapped a case of beer behind you (24 bottles), the box is pretty much the same size. I do see an obvious difference, but not to throw me over or anything. Although there isn't much wind in this area compared to other areas of the continent, maybe someone elsewhere wouldn't feel the same way.


Keep it simple

Build this rack from ~$30 worth of steel, some of which I already had laying around.

Thanks, appreciate that. Been trying to design and fab the accessories I want. Have done the rack, windscreen(cut down from a spare), 4 pvc tool tube, and most recent swapped to TTR pegs which required changing the shifter. Cut up, welded, and bent the stocker to work.
