Bates crate on my Rocky Mtn!
Today I got my prize from LGRB Summer Games. A Bates Crate, made in Chicago, USA. Wow, it's so beautiful, and so carefully built. Very good quality handcrafted bike crate, wish I knew the names of the types of joints these are. They aren't dove-tails are they?.
As I do not have a porter crate compatible bicycle at this time, I attached it to my back rack. A metal one looks good on her, so I figured that a wood one would be even more special. I was correct! I apologize if this is not how it was meant to be used. But I really want to show it around town.
Thanks Dottie and Trisha for hosting such a neat contest with great prizes like this. I'm so very happy! And thanks to Bates Crate for sending one to Canada.
