Hey littlebeaver,

That cup holder you made me a few years ago finally gave out. I had to replace the bottom plywood with a piece of lexan. Works great. I just love all the looks I get while drinking my coffee on the way to work.

Just wanted to say thanks again.

Chris aka Brit

Maybe 3" pipe I don't remember, years ago I wrote up how I did it.. Posted it here and all.

this was an idea I dreamed up for myself,,,I made these using 4" pvc pipe and just wrapped them with artificial leather and a ribbon with a plywood base insert tightly into the bottom, I shot brads into the sides of the plywood an also glued them into place...Fastened it to the label areas two holes with eye screws so I can remove it by hand, it's perfect for me...Oh I cut the pipe at a slight angle so the holder is perfectly plumb as I ride...

Mine only failed due to water separating the layers in the plywood.

Otherwise it is one of my favorite things about my bike. Really it is often the small things that tip the scales.

Coffee accessibility is NOT a small thing!
