crates2This just in: Cole Bates, of 1 Less Car (one of the very first folx to put our name on his popular blog), just got in touch with us here at Swift to announce his new project: Bates Crates.

Since we have a working relationship with Cetma Cargo in Eugene, we thought it particularly fitting that we help spread the word about Cole’s elegant maple wood porter crates. With coffee cup holders built-in and plenty of space for other goods, this beautifully designed box hits the mark. Cole says that he thinks they’re a wonderful fit for your 5 rail Cetma rack, and are a versatile addition to most other porteur racks.
