Bikes and milk crates go together like chips and dip–it’s hard to do it once you’ve had that experience. The folks at Brooklyn Cruiser seem to know this and have been showing off thier bikes with wooden crates attached. They also offer a “handcrafted wooden bike crate” upgrade of their own for $79.99. That seems a little steep to me, but then I use a standard 6 gallon plastic crate on my bike.
