Trying to fix a bike [1]can be a daunting task. After dealing with bolts, tubes, screws, tires, and wrenches it’s not unlikely that your attempt to change a chain has left you with 50 piled up parts. For those you who find yourselves as broken down as your bike when it comes to seemingly simple repairs, Jose Rivera [2]‘s “Ice Cream Bike” offers a simplified construction that leaves repair roadblocks in the dust.

The Ice Cream Bike (which takes design cues from rainbow-colored ice cream) is made simply from salvaged parts and two pieces of recycled steel [3]that were water-cut into the profile of a bike, and then bolted together at the front tube, seat tube and bottom bracket. The bike’s low-key construction requires only a screwdriver and a wrench when it come to maintenance. And because the bike can be easily broken down, it can just as easily be transported [4]or stored.
