Buckets of Second Doom

Jakub's Amazing Bucket Bike

I just found these buckets. Pretty good. They're straped on, and that looks like a Jerry rigged rack.

Comments:
I saw those, but declined to link to them. Definately proves that you can make panniers in 10 minutes with 5 dollars!
 
Yeah, I don't think the design is all that good. A+ for effort C- for execution.
 
I'm interested in your impression of the Arkel replacement kit. Do the buckets rattle as you go due to side-to-side vibration?

Pls post at the "pannier geekiness" thread.
 
Okay, I'll post.
 
Interesting comments about Jakub's creation.

I will confess that I didn't expect his system to work well but it truly did through a long winter filled with lots of offroad riding on bumpy paths with heavy loads in the buckets. It also worked well on the roads and survived the ocassional heavy fall.

I was absolutely amazed!

He's decided to make a change so that the buckets can be removed quicker. He intends to try out the Arkel kit so it should be interesting to see how well that works.
