1-Up makes the best bike racks. We’ve said it once, twice before, and we’ll say it again. But what about its cargo solutions? Well, 1-Up just announced the inclusion of a 48″ or 60″ wide cargo tray and a Cargo Add On for 1-Up bike racks. Think of these as extending the space of your car to your trailer hitch. With the Cargo Add-On, you can strap a box or container for your wet and muddy shoes or poison-oak-covered clothing.

We know there are many options for tying down your cargo in your Wald basket but we’ve been emailing with this company and felt like you might be interested in it! My Little Bungee is an adjustable bungee cord designed for use with Wald baskets. Each end easily snaps onto the basket rails and can be tightened by pulling on the tail of the cord. Combine two or more to create an adjustable cargo net. They work great on small or large loads, or to strap stuff to the outside of your basket. They can also be used off bike to lash objects together. See more at My Little Bungee.
Remember Keith and his Scissortail? We posted about him the day he left Stillwater, OK for Boulder, CO. Filmmaker Adam Hillberry saw our post and decided to link up with Keith to make this short video. Enjoy!
