Walnut Studiolo offers a clever way to port a 6-pack along for the ride.
Yep, that would certainly encourage more people to cycle. At least until the carton gets wet…
Anyone know the brand of bicycle in this photo?
Pretty good. Me, I use a Gomoh front basket (available from Rivendell) that includes a built-in bottle opener. It’s an awfully heavy front basket though. It’s designed to hold an entire case of beer.
You guys talk about testing each word on a page: why did you change the wording from “offers this clever way” to “offers a clever way”?
but this will take all the fun out of watching guys who got DUIs try to manage a case of beer on a bike! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fZZyx4LvLVY
mashby: From the blow up of the photo I would guess this:

That’s a Bianchi headbadge on the frame (which has been repainted or powdercoated), and all the parts are nearly all aftermarket.
Design/engineering feedback: The cardboard box would rip after a bump or two, not to mention how badly the six pack would swing back and forth when you stand to pedal up a hill.
This is a beautiful product, but for real world use I imagine it wouldn’t work very well.
A foldable rear rack would be better.
The bike looks to be a mid-80s Bianchi, possibly a Brava judging from the round tubes, single set of bottle bosses and room for fenders. However, it doesn’t have downtube shifter bosses and I can’t find a Bianchi with that weird shield thing on the bottom of the downtube, which leads me to believe the frame has been customized. Looks nice!
What was the point of this blog again? I used to remember.
I’m pretty sure bike beer racks was not it, though.
Could be wrong.
AC, here’s a refresher: “a weblog by 37signals about design, business, experience, simplicity, the web, culture, and more”. It’s right there in the header. You can either pick “design”, “culture”, or “and more” for your personal categorization of this post. It’s a fun game, enjoy!
Thanks joe larson. Great scene from a really good movie.
Too bad my knees and legs would be hitting those bottles all the time.
Also: a better beer would be on my bike. :-)
What a dorky fucking bike. I’d kick the ass of the geek on that ugly clap trap.
I love it.
Nice, but please let me know when they develop the 2.0 version which holds a case of beer and fifth of bourbon.
Pretty, but it seems like it would make for some awkward pedaling. I’ll stick with my foldable rear baskets (and my O’Dells six pack).
I would take the bike, though, if the owner wanted to give it to me.
After 6 Czech beers, the bike looks better.
He likes options, but prefers quality.
