    Wheelbarrow Handles are a bargain

    Just got a pair, delivered $40, nice wood

    They are parts for my LF Camera Handcart, also have Baltic Birch cut to size for the box

    Glue & Screw

    I bought the wheels 2 years ago

    No drawings, I design in my head then produce

    It's an Autism method for madness

    Cheers!

    Re: Wheelbarrow Handles are a bargain

    I need something, I rode my Ebike to the grocery yesterday, about 9 miles round trip. No way I would carry a view camera in the basket of the bike without serious concerns. On my way back I noticed the incredible vibration transmitted through the frame of the bike. Bike paths are bumpier than the street. I could get a better ride by lowering tire air pressure but that makes it more effort.

    Maybe a hand cart would be better??

    I have a very lightweight trailer for towing with eBike, that's for 5 to 10 mile

    I posted a pic some time ago

    The Wheelbarrow Camera is for my porch and 1/2 acre yard

    It will attract attention with ye olde decorations and flags

    Thoughts about controlling (softening) bicycle-pannier vibrations - mounting these to the frame with elastic straps or bungee cords - and padding between frame and bag with soft foam?

    I don't and can't ride bicycle on mountains

    I use these to keep things dry

    I did save 60X24" closed cell foam from a mirror for reuse

    However yesterday I was shipped NOS 1895 1/2 Plate camera carefully packed with recycled corrugated cardboard

    No damage to contents, still LN

    I bet I have more bungees that anybody here

    Good idea, Tin Can. But I prefer my modified golf bag on wheels. Don't play golf, but you can carry a tripod, a camera, and quite a bit of extra gear. Too bad it's not big enough for the 810M.
