    Holy macarel,
    The surf/Tourist- Town I play in is so overcrowded, that I go to the gig by bike. Praise aer amps and the inventor of the double Gigbag.

    Looks cool! I’ve come to value the ultra portable gig rig myself. I could probably get away with that bike setup too if I wanted/needed.

    Guitar in gig bag, 1x12 cab, amp head (Quilter 101), pedals and cables in a small duffel bag. Done. Love it.

    Ha! I had to blow up Eddie's picture, before realising he uses a trailer. My first thought was that he had a long recumbent, or three wheeled delivery trike.

    That's a cool transportation ride.
    Have you thought about building a bigger box? then the AER could ride lower. no risk of dropping or toppling.

    Manager. He wants a steady stream of dogfood.

    There's a intentionally homeless guy around here who has a similar rig. I see him pedaling around from time to time and he sometimes plays on the street in the small town near where I live. He camps on public land most of the time although I've heard he stays with his local family's home when weather is bad.

    Wait up, you’re a guitar picking, bike riding dog?
