Crate Cruisers from Brooklyn


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.


Thanks to Bless This Stuff for the original post.

What if your new bike came with a crate?

Bowerly Lane Bikes understands the need and desire for storage on your two-wheeled peddaler. Instead of giving you some zip ties and wishing you good luck, they’ve gone out of their way to provide a vintage-styled, wooden crate. It’s not technically a milkcrate, but we all know where the inspiration came from. –> Bowery Lane Bicycles: Handmade in NYC via Re-Nest
