    Hi Steve, is there any of this left? Would be keen to take a kg off your hands - would you be able to send it ground? Cheers

    Crust type setup is where I got the inspiration from - just trying to think of ways of doing it for less money/with a rack ive already got to hand.

    @tallsam the rack would mount at the top of the fork but the Pelago’s come with a variety of mountings which i’d Try and invert. Failing that I’d get someone to fabricate a new bracket.

    Got a plan in my head to build a functional load carrying rigid MTB. Was thinking of using a smaller wheel (24” if 26” frame, 26” if a 29” frame) on the front with suspension corrected fork to compensate in order to create a larger space to fit stuff on the top of my pelago commuter rack. Is this doable/a terrible idea/will create certain death trap?

    What size, how much and where are you based?

    Any recommendations for workplace coffee? Bean to cup preferred, would receive fairly heavy usage. We’re currently paying around £500 a month for a pretty bad machine - would we be able to get a bean-to-cup machine with that?

    Who makes these? Been thinking of ways to make an old MTB a better load carrier and something like this would be ideal. Do you think it would be possible to make one with a slightly higher platform for 20/24 inch wheels?

    Moving in to a new place which has a big carport out the back. My other half and I don't want to have bikes piled up in the kitchen, so until we can build the shed we've got planned, can anyone recommend a decent lockup to go in the carport? Ideally I'd want something where the bikes are stored vertically as it's easier for my OH to get them out. Ideally something like a big lockable cabinet. All the vertical ones seem to be £600 for a single bike which is too much for us.

    Looks like a bunch of wild garlic in the woods on the way to work - any decent recipes/preserving strategies for it?

    Just taken the plunge in to the world of aeropress (thanks @Double_J) - any guidance on forum-approved brew methods? I'd prioritise speed over absolute quality as I often don't have much time before work in the morning. TIA x
