Lance himself sells these at Mellow Johnny’s, his Austin bike shop. No surprise. This chromoly rig, our top pick here, uses a tried-and-true midcentury French “porteur” design, used to deliver heavy loads swiftly and agilely across Paris for decades. Our 100-mile test (transporting goods all over Portland, Oregon) confirmed the brilliance of the front-loading geometry, aggressive position, and fat tires. Swift Industries’ waterproof Pelican Porteur Bag (sold separately, $150; swiftindustries.wordpress.com) is made for the big front rack. Bonus: Morton is personalizable, with build-kit and color options. belovedcycles.com
