Some of my best hacks have been aided by beer. Okay, all of my hacks have been aided by beer. Not only has beer aided reader Brad, he sent along this hack incorporating his tall boys.

As with all of my ideas (shoddy or entertain-able), I was sitting around after drinking a few brews and getting ready to bike to the bar (which in the winter in Toronto usually leaves you with a back full of slush). Staring at all the beer cans in front of me, I had a light bulb moment and me and a buddy got to work. Finished construction on it the next day and in total only took a few hours.
I basically just took the tall boys and cut the ends off, hammered them flat, and then riveted them together in a line. I then took steel strapping to reinforce it where the cans were joined, strung a coat hanger through the end for stability and zip tied the other end near my seat post.
Attached it to my 70's Peugeot dumpster dive and voila!
