Posting this quick... it's not a new idea but this aluminum cargo rack is on sale at Menards right now and maybe someone else wants to build one while that is going on too.
Those fork mounts need different skewers, but once I run to the hardware store and get what I need it will run 100 and 135mm spacing forks just fine. They bolt right to the rack with $5 in bolts. I happen to have a couple extra ones that I'd pass on for some beer.... Let me know.
Wonder how it will fit with 29XXX tires?
Edit- added shot of the roof rack as well. Will get a close up of the very DIY 'foot' setup used to mount to the factory rails.
Hitting the Hero Gravel. - I wan't able to ride Monday due to Gymnastics and with rain predicted all day today into Thursday I really wanted to ride on Tuesday. Well, in the morning...
