From problem-solving father Chuck Heaton, we've got a simple conversion from baby crib to bike storage:
From Chuck: "So we have a drip-side crib that our kids were raised in that was still functional. It is now deemed dangerous, a baby killer, taken off the market, etc, blah, blah, blah. Time to upcycle this baby killer into the Heaton Bike Wrangler, Ka POW! Regulations give you lemons, you make strawberry lemonade. Depending on how well it hold up, those sweed cuddly baby raising memories will be supporting great family bike rides for a while."
Thanks Chuck. For anyone reading: what have you repurposed for bike storage? I submit my Karate Monkey hitchin' post:
Inspired by some like-minded do-gooders at the Actual Cafe, our man Gage fab'ed up a bike-powered bingo machine for a fundraiser at our Big Momma QBP's western distribution center.
From Gage: "The bicycle is a cheap cruiser that was acquired by trading a 30-pack of coors to a co-worker—it even came with the ape-hangers. The dual drive chains are provided via a fixed/free hub from a fixie (it was originally built with a coaster brake hub that blew up in "testing"). The a-frame is made up of locally harvested dumpster steel. I had originally intended to use floating chainrings as tensioners in the chain but they proved to be dangerous and un-reliable [first pic below]. So I installed a few derailleurs to straighten things out [last pic]. All in all the event was a success and the machine didn’t blow up."
