Bikejuju sent us a hack discovered on the blog Go Means Go. You could say this is a vintage bike hack. It might be a brake, or it might just be a tire brush. Either way, it's very cool.

I'm really interested into how that works. Is it a solid rod that just depresses when you pull the leg/arm/handle or is there something that I can't see (or think of right now)...

Without a latch to keep the arms fully down, it's a parking brake. Cute, but kinda counter-productive.

Clever design. The brush rod is spring loaded up so it takes movement of the levers to put the brush against the tire.

I would like it better if it was just a working corkscrew, sort of a satirical comment on the profusion of beer bottle openers on bikes.
