The amazing do-it-yourself exercise bike


By Travis Mayfield

I’m not a do-it-your-selfer. 

That’s certainly no secret.

I’m a hire-someone-to-do-it-for-youer.

Still, I’m in total awe of those who can do-it-themselves.

So when the folks at Dunn Lumber tweeted a link to a do-it-your-self bike roller I couldn’t help myself. I had to check it out. 

After watching the video, I am both thrilled and frightened by the whole idea of a DIY bike roller.

I’m thrilled that someone not only thought of this but then actually went out and built it.

I’m frightened because the ‘future dad’ in me sees disaster written all over this if the rider ever crashes.

Yet this thing really is pretty amazing and despite the fact that I neither ride an indoor nor an outdoor bike, I want one.

Now who can a hire to build me one (because I certainly cannot follow these instructions myself)?
