I just reread this after someone posted something about wanting to put bikes in the back.
I can say it can be done. But, but, but be very cautions about it. Minimal weight is all I can say. I put only kids bike, less than 50lbs. For the most part, it is now just a flag pole holder.
It was interesting rereading the advices, challenges and lack of understanding of what I thought I knew, what people knew, and most of all experiences.
Having been in this forum for over a year now and have participated in many discussions and read tons of threads, what people know vs experiences don't always go hand in hand.
We all can agree on one thing: Safety first.
"No job is so simple that it cannot be done wrong."
"Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege."
"Either I will find a way, or I will make one."
