Reader Darryl contacted us and passed along what I think is one of the greatest bike hacks ever. He stated that it was not exactly a hack, but I get to differ. No need for me to spoil the story so I'll let him tell it himself . . . congrats man! Text and photos credited to Darryl.
Not exactly a bike hack, but I just got engaged, and instead of an engagement ring, I gave my fiance an engagement bike. She's not too into jewelry, or spending lots on each other, and she needed a bike (had a loaner that she needed to return). When I proposed, I gave her a jewelry box; inside was a drawing of a hand wearing a tiny bike in place of a ring.
We went to the local bike shop and picked out her bike (a Trek Allant), and she loves it!
Freaking awesome story if you ask me . . . and it provides a built in reason to ride bikes together on an anniversary! Do you have some heart touching bike stories? Feel free to share with us.
