Put some beer on it

The search for an elegant bicycle beer transport solution has plagued mankind for decades. Significant advances were made in the past couple of years, including the Dolores Chiller by Timbuk2 and Rickshaw Bagworks’ Mexican Revolutionary-inspired Beerdolero.

This innovative and handsome solution was originally designed to to carry bike polo mallets, but once the craftsman realized that bike polo is not exactly as ubiquitous as he had thought (and that lots of people seem to think it’s lame), he strapped beer to it and won the rest of us over. The result is the “6 Pack Frame Cinch”, available on etsy now, for just $22.

Interesting idea, outsourcing the heavy lifting to your bike frame as opposed to your back. It’s probably not great for your balance, though, so don’t bother with that no-hands track stand unless you want to be picking broken glass out of your arm.

Still no word on what’s available for people who want to carry a 12-pack, though.

  1. I take it that you’ve never had one of those cardboard six-pack holders fall apart.

    I didn’t know people still made things out of leather.

    never mind the fact the cardboard would rip apart after the first bump, spilling your beer and littering the street with glass, even if the cardboard didn’t break, who wants shaken up beer upon their destination? not I kind sir.

    You’re kidding me with that shifter, right?
