I can imagine the surprise when the the lot attendant went to throw the tree on top of the car, but the owner pedaled around the corner on this instead.

How would the rider know where they’re going?
and that bakfiets isn’t going up any hills.
It was a short distance and the tree was tipped down, pointing out like a narwhal so I had better sight. And to make things better for me, there were not any hills.
It’s a little bit easier if the xmas tree lot has tree-compression nets. See: http://www.flickr.com/photos/halibut5000/3090776408/
I rode mine home about 5 miles with the load mostly stabilized by bungie cords. The top of a tree is pretty light, so if the base is well inside the cargo area, the bike handles normally.
@Halibut, nicely done. Very nice. I am impressed.
