    Synergy

    Two of my favorite things brought together in fine style. Blast some good blues through the pannier sound system and you have the trifecta.

    The more you ride your bike, the less your ass will hurt.

    I wonder how that would ride when the kegs got to half full and sloshed side-to-side. Maybe Stap will know. That's obviously the UK version because the kegs aren't refrigerated.

    Never tried moving a 1/2 full keg of beer. I wait till its empty and then Call for another

    One thing I hate is COLD beer- Just below Blood temp is fine.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Not so. Actually, the pan below the kegs contains refrigeration coils.

    BD, is there any reason you can't buy that rig, fill the kegs and pedal it up to Ann Arbor this coming summer?

    The poorer-quality the beer, the more it needs refrigeration. That's why a self-respecting beer drinker can't drink Budweiser or Molson's Canadian unless it's nearly frozen. (Besides the fact that they're not beer...) I'll take a micro-brewed ale (IPA or porter) at any temperature!

    Do the cranks operate the pump that runs the beer thru the refrigeration coils? Now that's green beer!

    With respect to stapfam, that's cooler (pun intended) than I thought. You still haven't covered what happens when the rider, and the beer in the kegs, gets sloshed. I'll bet taking that thing anywhere in the US would be a permitting nightmere too.

    I bet downhills with full kegs is a treat.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.
