In our travels around Melbourne we’ve often seen enterprising cyclists strap plastic milk crates to the back of their bikes to help carry all those bottles of milk/wine/beer home.

Bowery Lane Bicycles from New York takes this a glamorous step further, by handmaking vintage cruisers with American steel, dual-spring saddles, cork grips – and attaching a wooden crate stamped with their name on the back.

We’re thinking flowers, crusty baguettes and cupcakes in our dream cargo.
