There’s a saying. Well, actually, there’s quite a lot of sayings. But yes, there’s one saying in particular that we’d like to draw your attention to: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”
When it comes to bicycles, and the willingness of so many cyclists to modify their rides, it appears that this saying doesn’t really apply. Now, of course, plenty of bike modifications serve a real and useful purpose; whether that’s making the suspension better, making the seat more comfortable, or something else entirely.
However, many bike modifications are absolutely insane. Some of these, if we’re being fair, are insane in the good way; in a way that makes you exclaim “WHY HAS NOBODY ON EARTH THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?!”
But then, on the other hand, some of them are insane in the way the evil villain from the Saw movies is considered to be insane so I guess it’s swings and roundabouts on that front.
Anyway, for your viewing pleasure, here’s 15 insane bike modifications. We’ll let you decide which of them are good, and which of them are crap.
