Reader Jim sent us a great front rack hack (say that three times fast) that involves a hacked milk crate. The full Flickr set with annotations can be found here, and Jim's blog is over here. Thanks Jim!

Hey - neat idea man! The only concern I see right off the bat, is that any rack held together with hardware vs. welds will be FAR more likely to fall apart with long-term use. That said, I could see it being fine for light loads. One thing you might look into is wise use of hardware - using a primary washer/nut tigtened LOOSELY against a second washer/nut behind it. If you tighten the primary too tightly, you'll likely have it come loose repeatedly over time due to lateral stress, etc. I found this out with a wald basket I had for a couple of years. I spoke to a good mechanic about it and got the "loose nut/washer" advice and it really did work.
