PLANKS ON BIKES

Milan Chinatown, 2012

While in Milan’s Chinatown, Jo was intrigued by these DIY-solutions for the transport of goods. These luggage carriers are, while similar, never the same and certainly far-removed from the designs typical of a modern urban bicycle. It’s not clear if these designs are the work of one tradesman or if the bike owners have created these constructions themselves, perhaps inspired by their fellow riders.
