    Keeping your buzz and riding too (Warning: GCB content)

    I often find myself rolling down to Golden City Brewery on my town bike. Problem is, I have to pedal that fugger back up to the house (I'm about 700 feet in elevation gain). Sometimes I just want to cross the river and crash out on IceGeek's patio and fall into a nice sleep until GotDirt rolls down on his rock machine, in which I can hitch a ride home.

    But those two scenarios don't alway's line up, and I pedal my drunk and happy azz back up to the house. Then, I'm all sobered up, but tired... which sucks azz cause I'm too lazy to do anything and now I'm sober... no fun.

    I've come up with a solution. I call it the Gizmo-tap. Some of you have seen it, but I though I'd share it with you.

    Take a GCB growler cap and drill two holes. Take a dead tube and hack off everthing except the valve and some rub on the other side. Slide in a camel back tube on the other side. Walla, you can pressurize the beer with your bike pump and suck down GCB as you ride home. Make a platform, be proud of your GCB investment...

    Taylor, that is stellar. What if you used a second bottle for your air source with a small regulator between it and the beer source? That way you wouldn't be pigeon holed into either continuously pumping the bottle to compensate for the air volume increase as you drink, running a high pressure when the bottle is full of beer, or only half-filling the bottle full of beer to provide an adequate air volume? Not even sure if there's even a problem; just throwing it out there.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    You could always blow up a spare tube, hang it off your camelbak and use that as the pressure supply like an old vw beetle used to use for the windshield washers.

    How about taking it a step further, and make some room next to the jug for your Bong?

    I do have a banana seat... I wonder if Althalliah would ride along and pump the growler?

    You might want to check into the legality of doing this. I wouldn't be surprised if the JeffCo Nazis give you a DUI.

    Strava: turn off your dork logger when you're not on sanctioned trails.

    Dude, I'm not going to put beer in the thing...

    Bad thing about the bottle bleed is it introduces (+) air pressure and may actually add bubbles (vs Avid that uses (-) pressure to draw out bubbles...).

    If you have to do that, you're not going fast enough.
    The more out of shape you are, the steeper the hill looks.
