DIY Bike Rack under 8 bucks
I'm a Host Home Provider take care of a Developmentally Disabled man for the past month I've been having to drive him to Day Program and back so I thought maybe I could just leave my truck there during the day and ride my MB home then later ride my MB back when it's time to get him.
So here's my bike hauler. It's surprisingly stable. No tie downs on the bike whatsoever.
Later plans call for a couple of stakes on the corners that I can loop maybe a wire over so I have a quick release. I had to drill some holes on that trunk thing but maybe when I'm not using it I can get like a kind of flap on there to cover up the holes.
I save 30 miles a day on my truck's wear when I use my MB.
That's great. Saves much wear and gas for the truck!
What is the rack made of? It appears to be steel pipe and PVC elbows.
Killer idea Large!
Wouldn't advise it in Buffalo tho... Potholes would bounce it right out!
It's been a while since we've had a Mayer serving consecutive terms. It's no longer an occupation, so they have to scrimp and scrounge to pay thier house in one. Not filling potholes must be a way they are saving money here!
Your always thinking of a better way. Good think'in bro.Inspiring others to dream is my motivation.

Nicely done, Large. Good to see Chronus back on the road as well."People are the only mirror we have to see ourselves in. The domain of all meaning. All virtue, all evil, are contained only in people. There is none in the universe at large." - Cordelia Naismith

"Bicycling is a healthy and manly pursuit with much to recommend it, and, unlike other foolish crazes, it has not died out." -- The Daily Telegraph (1877)
It's Like LEGO's for adults !!!
