What are some things you don’t want to see in the world of cycling? You don’t want to see the 300 lb cyclist that decided to squeeze into the Lance Armstrong suit and you get stuck behind him for two miles. He will go just fast enough that he won’t allow you to pass but slow enough you can see the beads of his sweat fly off and hit your window shield. Then there is the inexperienced cyclist that threw on some basketball shorts and cut off t-shirt. You don’t think there is anything bad about it until he flashes his plumbers butt at you which makes you begin to think that fat guy wasn’t too bad. Cycling can be great but we always thought there was something missing but could never identify what it was.
We reached out to a company called Ahearne Cycles based out of Portland. They hand build all of their bad ass bicycles with “love and fury” but it wasn’t just the bikes that caught our attention. Ahearne has created a bicycle flask that will actually attach onto your bike which will allow you to have your favorite drink at any given time. We know that it probably isn’t standard to have a flask on your bike but think about some of the cool places you can bike to like the top of a mountain or somewhere else with a great view. It is at that moment you realize a flask would kind of come in handy as you relax and wind down before getting back on the cycle again. The flask can be engraved with whatever you need and it is a custom fit to the holder it comes with. We were actually given a demo of this by Ahearne and were mostly impressed with the quality of the flask. After we attached it to a bike, it was evident that you would have to fall off a cliff to see the flask detach from the holder. If you can’t afford one of the high quality Ahearne Cycles, you can buy one of these flasks and slap it on your awesome Huffy.
