A couple of years ago I saw this ad on Universal Sports:
Maybe it was the fact that the guy in the ad was pedaling at about 30 rpm, but it didn’t make an immediate impression on me, but the ad must have stayed in the deep recesses of my subconscious. Recently I found myself occasionally trying to type emails while doing my weekly Friday “lower steady” ride & I thought “I need a bike desk!”
So I measured the height of my tallest bike (plus trainer riser) at the tallest point of the aerobars, then enlisted my father in law to help me build a tall desk that would allow me to slide the bars underneath. We made the trip to Home Depot to buy supplies and several hours later, the bike desk was born!
I’ll write a bit about getting work done at the bike desk in the future.
