The Inverted Bike Shop
As a kid I loved riding bikes. What I loved even more was tinkering with them. I had this classic Chopper (you know, with that smaller front wheel?) that I hacked up and lighten so that I could do bigger jumps. My boys size BMX was a mish-mash of parts that was a result of my lengthening limbs.
This video brought back very strong nostalgic memories of visiting my local bike shop to do cool things like balance my tires or replacing my brake pads. Sadly such “mechanic” style bike shops are disappearing, and in its place bike boutiques with standard offerings. I do miss those days, and probably why bikes fail to interest me much these days.
So how does this post relate to design?
It’s been a while since you designed with your hands, no?
