Ideas are easy. Execution is hard. Every Friday I will share an idea that's been rolling around in my head that I have neither the time nor the where-with-all to execute. Remember, it's free, so take it for what it's worth.
Pump it up
The other day I had to inflate the tires on my old Trek and after digging the pump out from behind all the gardening equipment, I attached it to the tire and started pumping and pumping and pumping.
Now, I don't mind a little work out, but I figure there has to be an easier way to do this. That's when I remembered an idea I had years ago. It's pretty simple but as far as I know, no one's done anything like it.
As gas prices rise and people look for alternative modes of transportation like bicycling, removing a barrier like low tire pressure would seem to be a good idea to increase riding ease and rider satisfaction.
