Introduction: 6-Pack Bike Holder

How many times have you run out of drinks at the BBQ and found yourself dangerously fumbling with a 6-pack while biking back from the corner store? You need a 6-Pack Bike Holder! With 5 bucks and 10 minutes, you can make a durable lightweight strap that will carry the 6-pack for you on your bike's top tube.

Step 1: Measure & Cut

Get a 1" roll of 2-sided velcro- this and a pair of scissors is all you'll need. Next, measure the handle cutout on a 6-pack container- mine was about 3". Cut two 3" strips to make the top and bottom bands.

To get the length of the straps right, just loop some of the velcro around your bike's top tube through the cutout on the 6-pack container. 8" seems like a good length- you'll need two of these as well.

Step 2: Assemble the Strap

Take your two 8" straps and two 3" straps and stick them together as shown. The 8" straps loop around and attach to themselves (I think a 1" overlap at the end will do the trick). Place one 3" strap at the end of the 8" straps, and the other 3" strap so that it's directly opposite from the strap on the end. What you're trying to do is make one 3" strap rest on top tube of your bike, and the other 3" strap rest along the bottom of the 6-pack handle cutout.

Step 3: Ride Off Into the Sunset (with a 6-pack)

The 6-pack fit comfortably between my knees and was easy to ride with. The strap folds up and fits in your pocket when you're done!

If the road is rough you run the risk of it ripping and your six pack falling of. Six pack fits nicely in my pannier.

I'm Building this tho. I carry a 30 pack in my bag and a tall boy on my coozie/beer holder on my drop bars. Never can be to prepared. Ha

Very nice. Be careful on rough city or off road terrain. The 6 pack can tear esp with condensation.

Glad you guys like it, it works like a charm. Just don't get a BUI!

This is awesome. Especially for those either too drunk to drive or those who lost their license and need to keep the party-for-1 going!!

I tried to hang my bottles from my handle bars last time, very poor results. This will work so much better.
