This ‘Handlebar Minibar’ Stores Booze In Your Bike’s Handlebars
You ever push your non-prescription Ray-Bans up your nose with one hand, scrolling through your iPhone 5 to find the new Pitchfork-recommended single with your other, while guiding your ten-speed (fixie?) through Brooklyn foot traffic with your knees and think, “Hey, I could really use a drink, like, right now?”
Yeah? Well, then, my multi-tasking friend, bear witness to the strange genius that is the Handlebar Minibar, compliments of Kickstarter Yannick Read (who also did this thing with this guy and put a train whistle on a bike). Two vials, tucked into the hollow ends of your bicycle handlebars (though apparently, it’s a one-size-fits-most deal), hold 5mL each of your favorite booze. FYI, altogether, that’s about a fourth of a short. But that’s not the point. The point is that you have booze in the handlebars of your bike.
And Yannick says it’s not just for booze. Use it for “banknotes” or “a rolled cigarette,” or as one Internet reader added (but this particular writer cannot publicly encourage), “coke and weed.”
Check it out on Kickstarter.
P.S. — Don’t drink and bike, man.
