Traveller to Commuter Conversion -
off as an old Repco Traveller I scored off eBay for $10. The paint
job is nothing to write home about, a simple spray of undercoat
white with glossy black finish. The components came off a few different
bikes, the only new part being the bottom bracket, as you basically
don't have to worry about sealed bottom brackets once there are
my main utility bike, its cargo capacity is of great concern, I
have experimented with many configurations, and finally settled
with the current setup. I wanted something that's permanently attached
to the bike so I don't have to lug it around so panniers are out.
The two baskets can handle most things I carry around on a daily
basis, but in the rare occasions when more space is needed, I adapted
one of those pensioner's trolley bags by removing the wheels & clamping
it to the rear rack.
