Cart Bike – Instructables

Interesting idea. I’d have to make a few major changes though.

First I’d remove the 4 small shopping cart wheels and instead add 2 20″ or larger wheels at the balance point of the cart. Then I’d bend the forks out to where they could be bolted or welded to the metal tubes of the cart. The angle of the steering tube of the bike might also need to be changed so that it was straight up and down to allow for better steering control when cornering.

Overall not bad for a first attempt.

    Tried to look at the site from here at work, and it was blocked with the category “Terroist/militaristic/extremist”.
    With a shopping cart bike? Are they going to loot all the local grocery stores at such speed that no one can stop them? Now I REALLY want to look at the site when I get home…

    Instructables is a site where they show you how to make things. Guess in an educational environment that could be construed extremist. 😉

    Though to give the filter its due, they do have articles on how to make other things like smoke bombs and the like. So could go either way.
