Not a pedal bike hack, but we were visiting family in Wyoming, and had driven to Montana for sightseeing. Coming back at night over the Dead Indian Pass we saw a motorcyclist at the side of the road. We pulled over to see how we could help.

An axle adjusting nut had broken, so his wheel was not keeping tension on the chain. We tightened him up with a Leatherman, but a few klicks later he was back on the side of the road. After more brainstorming, my dad borrowed a bolt from a highway sign, which tightened crossways and got the biker into town.
