      what an awesome photo set. I am preparing to bring home 8 2x4x8' and a number of smaller units, and was hoping to do it by bike, but without wide loaders I don't think I can rig a stable enough harness. I think those are my next xtracycle investment.

      You're going to get oscillation, it's pretty much unavoidable (you and the ladder form a giant tuning fork). Worst case for me was 4 8' 4x4s:

      It was an upper-body workout; I could damp the oscillations, but I was unable to stop them.
