Is there a clever way to do it? Any tips appreciated.
possible to get it securely on your back but high up? i've ridden with a few bags before, one being a badminton bag and due to it's length it's quite hard getting on and off the saddle and trying not to get the bag caught on the saddle.
If you are nudged off, you go to hospital with a broken neck.
^^^ Wot he said.
Get a trailer or walk, drive, take the bus.
Better safe than quadraplegic
Easy, lash it to the bike and walk home
Tie it to your current frame and just ride it like normal?
If its a nice frame, take it on the bus to show it off.
If its naf, put it in a bin liner before you leave the shop.
Attach 2 wheels, seatpost and saddle, possibly some brakes, a chain, crankset.... blah blah blah... then ride it home.
I'm not being too helpful, am I?
Well thanks for that guys! Where would I be without you...
Just strap it to your back - I have carried one like that - it was shorter (and lighter)than my golf clubs which I often carry on my bike
Can't you just hold it in one hand while you ride? Or maybe you could try 'wearing' it...somehow.
I want to see pics.....
Jesus, anyone would think that this is some totally insane thing to do based on the above suggestions. Just wear the main triangle like a messenger/shoulder bag. It's a quick errand run not some extended countryside blast FFS - and trust me, when you've got a load of metal sticking out from your person, cars give you plenty of room.
I've carried one like that - a bit uncomfy but if it's not for very far - and you can ride one handed for periods when it's safe and bear the weight of the frame with the free hand.
I'd second that. I've done it with two frames - you have to go with a bit of extra care, and keep fiddling about with the frame position so it doesn't get in the way, but it isn't difficult. And you're right about the extra room...
Could this be the new Hi Viz?
