Intro: Rain Proof Utility Storage Unit : a Low-Tech Solution
For a cyclist, getting punched tire is a common situation. However when we're in a middle of nowhere, it sure become a headache. Plus, if we're in any kind of situations and then we think we should bring something along.
Or, lending a hand to an unfortunate cyclist.
I have a way to solve and that's the reason I did this instructable. Firstly, we need...
Step 1: Items
This items are easily buy in your local hardware store.
- 1 foot of 3" UPVC
- 2 pieces of 3" end caps
- 2 pieces of 14" cable ties
- 2 pieces of 6" cable ties
A little of ingenuity
Step 2: The Storage
I assemble two pieces of 3" end caps at each ends of the one foot of 3" UPVC. I calculate the volume of the unit is enough to store some essential items.
Step 3: The Tie
Then I fasten the 14" cable ties on the UPVC just near the end caps
Step 4: The Asembly
Lastly, I attach the storage unit with the top tube of the bicycle with the 6" cable ties (not to tight or else it'll obstruct the breaking mechanism). I put a black sponges just to look nice.
Some place it's illegal to put something like this on your bike. So, make sure that you don't break any law.
Step 5: What to Put Inside the Unit?
- Rain coat
- Traveler facial spray
- Solar power bank and USB connector
- Mini First Aids box
- Cable ties
- Medical facial masks
- Basic repair tools
(Items that I forget to add in the picture)
- Spare tube
- Duck tape (has 40% left)
The kit weight just about not more than 2 kilograms.
What to take with you on your next bicycle ride? I'll let your creative mind do the job :)
