Have you ever wanted to put bumper stickers on your bike, but had no place to put them?
Do you have a milk crate on your bike? Well, I have a solution for you!

Let's learn how to make the Bicycle Bumper Stickero-matic!! (Not the official name XD)

Step 1: The Stuff!

So, you'll need:

A drill, or other hole making device. (I used a 7/32" drill bit to make the holes.)

Zip/cable ties.


A piece of corrugated cardboard.

And a bike with a milk crate.

Step 2: Trim the Cardboard.

Pretty simple, trim the cardboard so that it covers the backside of your milk crate.

Step 3: Attach the Cardboard.

Drill one hole up in the top corner through the cardboard, and the plastic. Then loop a zip tie through and over the top, then tighten it. (Be careful not to tighten them so much that you rip the cardboard)
Then do the next top corner the same way.

For the bottom, I put the zip tie in the middle, instead of the corners. You can do it either way.
The trick here though, is to drill through the side, and bottom. (See the third picture.)
Then just loop the zip tie through, and tighten.

Step 4: Add Stickage, and You're Done!

Just add stickers, and you now have bumper stickers on your bike! Congratulations!

I added some pictures of my baby ;) Yes, it's a dual suspension with a rear rack. It's one of those racks that goes around the seat post, instead of down to the dropouts. I zip tied the bigger rack (shown in picture #5) to it, and the milk crate is bungee corded to that.

    I agree, coroplast > cardboard. If it's not election time, you can find it in plenty of retail rubbish bins, or even fairly cheap or free scrap from "print your own" sign shops.

    I've always thought that my rear rack milk crate was the perfect place to attach little bits of my mind. This is definitely the way to do it. One suggestion: use coroplast instead of cardboard. Coroplast can be found all over your town during election time. The candidates use this waterproof cardboard, and some of them will let you have all of them you want. It has the same crafting abilities as cardboard, but will undoubtedly endure greater abuse.

    Great 'ible! Keep up the good work!
