Start your RRB Build Off Journal here!
I just read this entire thread, now I'm thirsty Looking good!
Found this at a yard sale today.
I fugured I could use it along with this
to make a BEER RUN trailer like this
Just a mockup for now.
I'll play around with this trailer idea more tomorrow. Obviusly the wheels need to be mounted on the side, but I just don't know if this is right for the bike.
I did some other detail work on BEER RUN today.
I finally mounted beer can work for the Olde Frothingslosh headbadge, the Tennents Lager and top tube pilsner glass, and Bonzo's Beer seat tube can. I found some great glue sheets in the epoxy isle of Home Depot. They are like little 2x2 sheets of gummy glue double backed tape. Perfect for headbadges and such.
I also made up the bike chain tie downs for the RRB six pack
And I also finalized and dressed up the way the bottle tank was secured to the frame
All in all, a fun day with the bike.
I still don't know about that trailer idea though.......
Ah ya gotta do the trailer!! That wheelchair is the exact same type I got my handlebars from for my buildoff... they've got a through-bolt and a little captive nut if you want to get creative with them.
The beer run bike is looking great! Definitely the one to have for a pub crawl. Good luck with the build!

Well, that's the cool thing about a trailer, it comes off when not in use.
But those small wheels wouln't like rough road surfaces. Also there will be some binding when the bike leans for turning.
Either way, I say go for it.
Killin' threads since 2000................X
Thanks for the encouragement, but I am just not feeling the trailer for this one. I did think up a few gimble ideas to handle the bike leaning while the trailer stays level. I'll let the idea mull around in my swamp of a brain for a while. Who knows.
From the start the skateboard reminded me of a surfboard, so I have been trying to find some fins. Well, I found the perfect ones for BEER RUN on ebay. Some Landshard Lager Fin coasters.
So now I have Fins to the Left and Fins to the Right.
I can't believe that this idea didn't pop into my head until tonight. Attach a beer can to a horn. Duh!
Eat your heart out New Belgium.
So far, I have 19 beers represented on this bike, including New Belgium (the La Folie bottle tank).
Maybe NB will let me design their next Fat Tire bike.
-"the bike honey! its for the bike!!"
looks like fun
i hate "slow"
Wait, if you are going to count how many beers went into this build, then I definitely need to up the number. It is against the rules to build a BEER RUN bike sober.
Can't wait to get home tonight and try out something I thought of at work. No beer cans involved, but it would be a drastic change in the way the bike rides. We'll see if it works.
Okay, I like the way BEER RUN has been looking, but an idea popped in my head and I have to try it out.
I decided to play around with some wheel combos and see how it works.
I have some cool fat 20" wheels from a kids Nirve chopper.
I also have a 700c hybrid wheel that I played with on the front.
What do you think???
24 rear - 24 front
20 rear - 24 front
20 rear - 700c front
20 rear - 20 front
I could swap out the current 7" crank for the 5" crank off of the chopper.
I am also thinking that if I went with the low rear, it kinda screams for apes or some other bars.
I tried these again.
