Introduction: Quick Bike Hack Fixes Floppy Pants Problem

I love being outdoors, hiking, camping, kayaking and appreciating Nature. I love figuring things ...

You're out pedaling and you realize the pants you're wearing could get caught in the bike chain. Not good. But if you can find a plastic soda bottle, there's a quick fix!

    I go for the tucked-in-socks look myself but maybe this design is for people who don't want to go full-on old-school. I suppose it also might protect the pants from chain oil. My mate just uses elastic bands.

    Military style bands also work (and are actually designed to hold the leg in place right on top of the boot), though they are a bit more expensive than a pack of rubber-bands or hair-ties.

    Yea, I know what you mean about the chain oil. I attached a 2 stroke engine to my bike, so it has extremely oily chains on both sides. However I always wear work pants anyways, so it doesn't really bother me.

    Good idea! I should keep some binder clips in my saddlebags. They come in handy. Thanks for commenting.
