Oooohhh! That is smug.
Here's some furniture I hauled from the Brown Elephant in Lakeview back to my apt in Humboldt Park. The weight wasn't so bad ass the wind resistance. It was a pretty blustery day and crossing the Diversey Bridge was rough. I ride an '88 single speed World Tour, too, so not much help from the bike itself. Totally worth it for a couple of new coffee tables, though!
Here's a before and after image of everything I was able to cram into my Chrome Ivan backpack. Took this load from old apt in Lincoln Square to O'Hare to go home for Xmas. Got a week's worth of clothing and toiletries, as well as gifts for my family, and was still able to take it as a carry-on! Boom, baby!
